City of Shadows is the start of a trilogy with the unforgettable seventeen-year old heroine, Helena Lennox, who in this first volume travels to India to follow the clues of her parents, both archeologists, in the purest tradition of Indiana Jones (yes, even including stolen treasures), featuring illustrations by Lehanan Aida (Maze Runner)!
Mystery, the supernatural, adventures, a love story that’s plotted over the course of the three books… and young people dancing the Charleston. All this characterizes this series in which, just like in Autumn in London, each book is set in a different country. We dive into a truly dynamic and ecxiting world with exotic scenarios of India in the 1920’s.
As a historian, Victoria Álvarez caputers the atmosphere authentically and in all its lively, rich detail and the series’ fabulous characters will appeal to both, teens and adults, which is why it’s recommended by authors like Selene M. Pascual (Sueños de Piedra, Rojo y Oro), Andrea Izquierdo (Otoño en Londres) and Concepción Perea (La Corte de los Espejos, La última Primavera).
