Wolf Hall

England in the 1520s is a heartbeat from disaster. If the king dies without a male heir, the country could be destroyed by civil war. Henry VIII wants to annul his marriage of twenty years and marry Anne Boleyn. The pope and most of Europe opposes him. Into this impasse steps Thomas Cromwell: a wholly original man, a charmer and a bully, both idealist and opportunist, astute in reading people, and implacable in his ambition. But Henry is volatile: one day tender, one day murderous. Cromwell helps him break the opposition, but what will be the price of his triumph?

Bring Up the Bodies

Winner of the 2012 Man Booker Prize, the sequel to Hilary Mantel's 2009 Man Booker Prize winner and New York Times bestseller, Wolf Hall, delves into the heart of Tudor history with the downfall of Anne Boleyn.

Though he battled for seven years to marry her, Henry is disenchanted with Anne Boleyn. She has failed to give him a son and her sharp intelligence and audacious will alienate his old friends and the noble families of England. When the discarded Katherine dies in exile from the court, Anne stands starkly exposed, the focus of gossip and malice.

At a word from Henry, Thomas Cromwell is ready to bring her down. Over three terrifying weeks, Anne is ensnared in a web of conspiracy, while the demure Jane Seymour stands waiting her turn for the poisoned wedding ring. But Anne and her powerful family will not yield without a ferocious struggle. Hilary Mantel's Bring Up the Bodies follows the dramatic trial of the queen and her suitors for adultery and treason. To defeat the Boleyns, Cromwell must ally with his natural enemies, the papist aristocracy. What price will he pay for Anne's head?

La Sombra De La Guillotina

París, 1789. Frente a las panaderías se forman largas colas de gente hambrienta, las calles están atestadas de vagabundos armados y prácticamente todos los días estalla una pequeña revuelta.

En la orilla izquierda del Sena, un joven y desconocido abogado llamado Georges-Jaques Danton intenta labrarse un porvenir. Es un hombre enérgico y se ha propuesto dejar su impronta en la historia cueste lo que cueste. Maximilien Robespierre, tambien abogado, es un hombre tímido que detesta la violencia pero está dispuesto a dar la vida por ayudar a los demas. Camille Desmoulins es un joven sin domicilio fijo y aparentemente sin porvenir.

¿Qué es la revolución francesa? ¿Un desastre, un sueño, una oportunidad? Para estos tres hombres representa la única carrera posible a la que consagrar su vida.
