Cicatriz

Cicatriz
Gómez-Jurado, Juan

"Simon Sax podría ser un tipo afortunado. Es joven, listo y está punto de convertirse en multimillonario si vende su gran invento -un asombroso algoritmo- a una multinacional. Y, sin embargo, se siente solo. Su éxito contrasta con sus nulas habilidades sociales. Hasta que un día vence sus prejuicios y entra en una web de contactos donde se enamora perdidamente de Irina, con la inexperiencia y la pasión de un adolescente, a pesar de los miles de kilómetros que los separan. Pero ella, marcada con una enigmática cicatriz en la mejilla, arrastra un oscuro secreto. Una novela que te hará mirar de otra forma a la persona con la que duermes."--Casadellibro

La historia de Kullervo

La historia de Kullervo
Tolkien, J. R. R., 1892-1973

Kullervo, son of Kalervo, is perhaps the darkest and most tragic of all J.R.R. Tolkien's characters. "Hapless Kullervo," as Tolkien called him, is a luckless orphan boy with supernatural powers and a tragic destiny. Brought up in the homestead of the dark magician Untamo, who killed his father, kidnapped his mother, and tried three times to kill him when he was still a boy, Kullervo is alone save for the love of his twin sister, Wanona, and the magical powers of the black dog Musti, who guards him. When Kullervo is sold into slavery he swears revenge on the magician, but he will learn that even at the point of vengeance there is no escape from the cruelest of fates. Tolkien himself said that The Story of Kullervo was "the germ of my attempt to write legends of my own," and was "a major matter in the legends of the First Age." Tolkien's Kullervo is the clear ancestor of Túrin Turambar, tragic incestuous hero of The Silmarillion. Published here for the first time with the author's drafts, notes, and lecture essays on its source work, the Kalevala, The Story of Kullervo is a foundation stone in the structure of Tolkien's invented world.

La templanza

La templanza
Dueñas, María, 1964-

"The New York Times bestselling author of The Time in Between returns with a magnificent new novel set in 1860s Mexico City, Havana, and Spain about a self-made man who loses his fortune overnight but finds his destiny as he works to restore a legendary vineyard to its former glory, and to win the love of the combative widow who once owned the property. Now available in Spanish. Mauro Larrea sees the fortune that he had built after years of hardship and toil come crashing down on the heels of a calamitous event. Swamped by debts and uncertainty, he gambles the last of his last money in a daring move that offers him the opportunity to resuscitate his fortune. But when the unsettling Soledad Montalvo, wife of a London wine merchant, comes into his life, her passionate intensity lures him toward an unanticipated future. La Templanza spans diverse worlds, from the young Mexican republic to magnificent colonial Havana; from the West Indies to the Jerez of the second half of the nineteenth-century, when its wine trade with England turned the Andalusian city into a legendary cosmopolitan enclave. A novel replete with glories and defeats, with silver mines, family intrigues, vineyards, and splendid places whose grandeur has faded in time, La Templanza is a story of resilience in the face of adversity, of a lifeline forever altered by the force of passion"--Provided by publisher.

Los perseguidos

Los perseguidos
de la Peña, Matt

"Secuela de Los vivientes, Los perseguidos es una apasionante historia de supervivencia, llena de la acción del mejor estilo. Luego de que un megaterremoto sacudiera la tierra bajo el océano del crucero en el que trabajaba, Shy jamás imaginó ser uno de los pocos sobrevivientes del naufragio. Tras los acontecimientos narrados en Los vivientes, y luego de perder la compañía de Addie en circunstancias por demás extrañas, Shy consuela su frustración en un nuevo fin: encontrar su camino a casa. Sin embargo Addie no se marchó sin antes confiarle información privilegiada. Información que tazaría alto el precio de quien la retuviera. Ahora, sin amable compañía de respaldo, Shy se ha convertido en un blanco fácil. Camino a California, morir se antoja cada vez más un escenario posible." --From publisher's website.

Los an̋os con Laura Díaz

Los an̋os con Laura Díaz
Fuentes, Carlos

A radiant and epic new novel that is among the finest achievements of Mexico's greatest man of letters. The Years With Laura Diaz is Carlos Fuentes' most important novel in several decades. Like his masterpiece The Death of Artemio Cruz, the action begins in the state of Veracruz and moves to Mexico City--tracing a migration during the Revolution and its aftermath that was a feature of Mexico's demographic history and that is a significant element in Fuentes's fictional world. Now the principle figure is not Artemio Cruz (who, however, makes a brief appearance) but Fuentes's first major female protagonist, the extraordinary Laura Diaz. Carlos Fuentes's richly woven narrative tapestry-filled with a multitude of dramatic scenes both witty, amusing, and heartbreaking-shows us this wonderful creature as she grows into a politically committed artist who is also a wife and mother, a lover of great men, a complicated and alluring heroine whose brave honesty prevails despite her losing a son and grandson to the darkest forces of Mexico's repressive, corrupt regimes. In the end, Laura Diaz herself dies, after a life filled with tragedy and loss, but she is a happy woman, for she has borne witness to, and helped to affect, the course of history and has vindicated the aims and intentions of the highest art.
