Readers’ Opinions – Reviews
“… Hypatia will find that there is another being that roams in the same way that she does, and which is characterised by evil and disproportionate ambition.

Juan Julián Merelo “J.J.” (from the Atalaya portal: desde la tela de araña. Complete review and comments HERE).
"Ramón Galí begins his story where others end theirs: with the death of the main character. He holds onto the essence of the character, the important part, her spirit. The real elements swiftly fade away, forming the base for a world of fantasy, quasi ethereal, magical, where the main character shows us her essence as it really was: a woman before her time, free of ties, where reason took precedence over senses and thought flowed absolutely freely…”.
