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.
