Meet the Author

Matilde Asensi nació en Alicante. En 1999 publicó su primera novela, El Salón de Ámbar, que ha sido traducida a varios idiomas. Con su siguiente novela, Iacobus (2000), se situó en los primeros puestos de las listas de libros más vendidos y El último Catón (2001) la confirm como la autora de su generación de mayor éxito de crítica y público. Posteriormente, con El origen perdido (2003) Matilde Asensi reinventó la novela de aventuras. Y en Peregrinatio (2004), recuperó a los protagonistas de Iacobus para realizar un viaje por el Camino de Santiago. Todo bajo el Cielo (2006) llevó a sus lectores a la China del Gran Emperador.

Tierra Firme, su novela de aventuras más reciente, está protagonizada por Catalina Solís, también conocida como Martín Ojo de Plata, un personaje capaz de cambiar sus ropas de mujer en nombre de la justicia y la verdad, lo cual le permite superar adversidades, dominar temores y debilidades, vivir en diferentes mundos..., y descubrirse como una aventurera capaz de desenvolverse en ambas realidades.

    An easy and entertaining read that shows how the 17th century Spain and the New World were handled by Spain's corrupt king Ferdinand the III, and how much hunger the actual population suffered. It also shows the rampant corruption of the era.

    Venganza en Sevilla by Matilde Asensi Sequel to "Tierra Firme"

    In this book we find Catalina Solís, also known as Martín Nevárez, surviving an attack from the Dutch pirates in her hometown, Margarita Island (Caribbean) in 1606. Her ship is sank and many of her crew is killed. Her adoptive father, Esteban Nevárez, is taken prisoner to Sevilla where Catalina follows him after making sure her mother, María Chacón, is alive and well. Catalina/Martín arrives in Sevilla too late and promises his father, on his deathbed, to revenge the people responsible for the atrocities: and to kill all four of the Curvo brothers and sisters.

    To implement her vengeance, she utilizes the help of her mother's sister: Clara Peralta. Both were prostitutes before they met their husband/lovers, and currently Clara is the mistress of the Piedramedina Marquis, a rich and prominent member of the Seville society. With Clara's help, Catalina decides to take on the Curvo family as Catalina and buys and restores one of the most famous castles in Seville and slowly kills one by one the Curvo family. The book ends with an opening for a sequel.

    An easy and entertaining read that shows how the 17th century Spain and the New World were handled by Spain's corrupt king Ferdinand the III, and how much hunger the actual population suffered. It also shows the rampant corruption of the era.
