Reviews

Praise for the #1 international bestseller Cathedral of the Sea

"The passion and heartache, as well as the grit and grime, of medieval Spain come alive...This epic novel...twists and turns through war, women and the Spanish Inquisition...[A] saga filled with colorful characters...[A] fantastic fourteenth-century fresco."--USA Today

"[It's] soap opera on a grand scale, made believable and enthralling by the inclusion of the commonplace brutalities and small compassions of life in medieval Barcelona. Watching Arnau's rise from literal rags to riches is frequently like watching a series of train wrecks; you're horrified but can't look away...[The] plot...is so beautifully structured that the last sixty pages detonate like a string of firecrackers...[The] prose is powerful...Falcones has an eye for the singular, telling detail, and...his characters are...believable...[A] riveting story."--The Washington Post

"[An] absorbing epic...Falcones's rich portrait of medieval society is fascinating."--Publishers Weekly

"[A] sprawling medieval family saga."--Kirkus Reviews

"With Cathedral of the Sea, Ildefonso Falcones dethrones Eduardo Mendoza and
Arturo PĂ©rez-Reverte...and has become Spain's new Dan Brown."--El Mundo
