Overview

Emma Harlow, una distinguida joven de Nueva York, tiene un plan para restaurar la memoria de su abuelo. Y quién sea capaz de llevarlo a cabo, obtendrá su mano.
 
En el caluroso verano de 1835, un hombre hizo soñar al mundo revelándole que la Luna estaba habitada por unicornios, hombres murciélago y otros seres fantásticos. Y aunque no se tardó en demostrar que aquello era una gran mentira, muchos prefirieron seguir creyendo que en la Luna se almacenaban los sueños que podían hacer más hermosas sus vidas.

Más de sesenta años después, su biznieta Emma Harlow, solicitada por lo más granado de la alta sociedad de Nueva York, sabe que sólo podrá enamorarse de alguien capaz de hacer soñar al mundo como lo hizo su bisabuelo. Por eso exige a Montgomery Gilmore, su más infatigable pretendiente, que reproduzca la invasión marciana descrita en La guerra de los mundos, la novela de H. G. Wells. Pero para el millonario no hay nada imposible: los marcianos invadirán la Tierra, aunque esta vez sea por amor. ¿Qué ocurre cuando los sueños se convierten en pesadillas? ¿Tenemos que dejar de soñar?

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

This novel, the standalone lynchpin novel of a bestselling Spanish trilogy, is as captivating as its title, which translates in English as The Map of the Sky. Like its predecessor El mapa del tempo (The Map of Time), El mapa del cielo is a subtle retake on H.G. Wells' 19th century science fiction; in this case, his War of the Worlds. The cast of its characters include an entrancing New York socialite, a host of alien invaders, Edgar Allen Poe, and H.G. Wells himself. A giddy imaginative leap.
