After the international best seller “The Cathedral of the Sea”, Ildefonso Falcones presents the unforgettable story of a young man torn between two religions and two loves.

In 1568, rebellion broke out in the Alpujarra valleys. The Moriscos, Muslims forced to convert to Christianity, were fed up with the injustices and humiliations and they rose up against the Christians, beginning a badly-matched battle that could only end with their defeat and dispersion across the Kingdom of Castile. Among the rebels was a young man named Hernando. The son of a Morisca woman and the priest that raped her, he is rejected by his own kind because of his origins, and by the Christians as well, because of his family’s culture and customs. During the insurrection he faces cruelty and brutality from both sides, but he also finds love in the big black eyes of Fátima. Following the defeat, he is forced to live in Cordoba where he focuses all his energy toward restoring his vanquished culture and religion to their former dignity and the role they deserve in society. In order to do so he must face grave risks and take on intrepid and highly dangerous ventures…
