(53) The Rose of Fire

Title: The Rose of Fire by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
Publisher: Harper Collins Ebooks
36 pages
Genre: Mystery

Synopsis: Set at the time of the Spanish Inquisition in the fifteenth century, “Rose of Fire” tells the story of the origins of the mysterious labyrinthine library, the Cemetery of Forgotten Books, which lies at the heart of Carlos Ruiz Zafón’s novels The Shadow of the Wind & The Angel’s Game.

Review: I have always wanted to know more about the Cemetery of Forgotten Books so when I saw that there was a short story available I jumped at it.  It didn't fulfill my entire wish to know about this weird and wonderful place but it at least was a start.  You find out where the plans came from and whose hands the eventually fall.  Now I want to know who built it and why they decided to store books in this amazing labyrinth etc.  Definitely leaves you wanting more.  Which I guess is half the point since the newest novel by this author was just released.


  1. I've always enjoyed this author, haven't read this book yet, thank you for your review.
