I was born in Barcelona and have lived in the UK for many years now. I'm a writer, translator (English-Spanish and vice-versa) and I'm a medical doctor and worked in Forensic Psychiatry many years. I also have a BA and a PhD in American Literature and Film, and a Masters in Criminology. I've always loved books and apart from writing them I review them often. I write a bit of everything, check my books for more information and my about page for links. My blog is bilingual, English and Spanish.

  1. Good review, Olga. I do like a fun adventure story with spies and a passionate purpose behind the story.

    1. Thanks, Priscilla. It’s impossible not to imagine what a great movie it would make when one is reading the novel. Such wonderful settings and plenty of intrigues as well. Enjoy the week!

  2. I have yet to finish reading the second part of this unusual yet incredible story, and I agree that it needs to be a series…

    1. Doesn’t it just? Perhaps they’ll listen to us! Stay well, and I hope you keep enjoying it! ♥

  3. I like the sound of the history, but would have to read part one first.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. I think that would work better. Although there is a sort of brief recap at the beginning of the book, sufficient for people who have read the first one to pick up the story again, I think it might leave too many gaps for somebody who hasn’t read it. It is not the usual series where the same characters get involved in different adventures, but a continuation of the first one. I hope things are looking up a bit, Pete. Stay safe.

    Sounds very intriguing Olga. Funny, before I got to your last paragraph, I was already feeling a Dan Brown type of theme here. <3

    1. Thanks, Debby. Although I haven’t read The Da Vinci Code, I’ve watched one of the movies, although I think there is, perhaps, more of a personal connection here, and the environmental subject is strong and adds a layer to it. I’d recommend reading the two books in order, though, to get the whole story and the impact. I hope the sun shines on you, and life gets sweeter. Big hugs.

        Thanks again Olga. I appreciate the heads up on both books, and always your kindness and friendship. <3

  5. Hi Olga This certainly sounds like a different and intriguing read. Right up my street, I love books about environmental issues and the inclusion of religion in a speculative way doesn’t bother me at all.

    1. I think you’d enjoy it, Robbie, although as I was telling Debby, I’d recommend reading the other book first, as it follows closely on the adventures of the first one. Enjoy the rest of the week!

  6. I was starting to think Da Vinci Code, then you mentioned it. Thanks for pointing out the first book. Have a beautiful weekend, my friend. Hugs on the wing.

    1. Thanks, Teagan! Yes, it does have the Da Vinci Code vibe, although it looks at some different issues as well. I hope you have a great weekend and good luck with your projects. ♥

  7. Hi Olga, This sounds very unique and intriguing, another fantastic review. Toni x

    1. Thanks, Toni. It is! Have a wonderful week! ♥

  8. Overpopulation was a popular worry long ago and worth revisiting. The book sounds intriguing.

    1. Yes, it is an issue we don’t seem to pay much attention to these days. I recommend starting with the first one, but the story grabs one’s attention, and the settings are fascinating. Have a lovely week.

Don't be shy! Tell me something!
