Author, Translator, Service Provider
Cuerpo Mortal, El último Héroe de Pompeya. Libro uno de las crónicas del tiempo (Spanish edition)

Children/Young Adult; Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Horror; (Market)

Marcus Poppeus had been educated by his family to rise to the highest levels of the Senate, but his thirst for adventure and his rebellion against the status quo presses his father to move up his plans for him, and thus, his wedding. Marcus is prepared to assume his role, but a conversation that he never should have overheard reveals a forbidden love hidden in the depths of his heart. A sequence of events that threaten the life of his beloved is put into motion at that moment. To protect her, he has to let her go. Thus begins an unbearable separation, during which Marcus discovers his true identity in an adventure involving gods, demigods, supernatural powers, a devastating love triangle, and a city on the brink of destruction, in desperate need of a hero. This story, like all great love stories, is about tragedy and loss, as well as love. The narrative pushes the characters down a road in where not everyone is whom he appears to be. The tension mounts as each secret is revealed in this gripping plot, with a final conclusion that could never have been predicted. With elegance and intelligence, Ana Costa Alongi recreates the ancient world under a looming disaster, in this epic adventure.
