LA PRECUELA DEL EXITO MUNDIAL LOS PILARES DE LA TIERRA

En Las tinieblas y el alba, Ken Follett embarca al lector en un epico viaje que termina donde Los pilares de la Tierra comienza. Ano 997, finales de la Edad Oscura. Inglaterra se enfrenta a los ataques de los galeses por el oeste y de los vikingos por el este. La vida es dificil y aquellos que ostentan algo de poder lo ejercen con puno de hierro y, a menudo, en conflicto con el propio rey.

En estos tiempos turbulentos, tres vidas se entrecruzan: el joven constructor de barcos Edgar, a punto de fugarse con la mujer a la que ama, comprende que su futuro sera muy diferente a lo que habia imaginado cuando su hogar es arrasado por los vikingos; Ragna, la rebelde hija de un noble normando, acompana a su marido a una nueva tierra al otro lado del mar solo para descubrir que las costumbres alli son peligrosamente distintas; y Aldred, un monje idealista, suena con transformar su humilde abadia en un centro de saber admirado en toda Europa. Los tres se veran abocados a un enfrentamiento con el despiadado obispo Wynstan, decidido a aumentar su poder a cualquier precio.
El gran maestro de la narrativa de accion y suspense nos transporta al ocaso de una epoca violenta y brutal y el comienzo de un nuevo tiempo en un monumental y emocionante relato de ambicion y rivalidad, nacimiento y muerte, amor y odio.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author, a thrilling and addictive new novel–a prequel to The Pillars of the Earth–set in England at the dawn of a new era: the Middle Ages

It is 997 CE, the end of the Dark Ages. England is facing attacks from the Welsh in the west and the Vikings in the east. Those in power bend justice according to their will, regardless of ordinary people and often in conflict with the king. Without a clear rule of law, chaos reigns.

In these turbulent times, three characters find their lives intertwined. A young boatbuilder’s life is turned upside down when the only home he’s ever known is raided by Vikings, forcing him and his family to move and start their lives anew in a small hamlet where he does not fit in. . . . A Norman noblewoman marries for love, following her husband across the sea to a new land, but the customs of her husband’s homeland are shockingly different, and as she begins to realize that everyone around her is engaged in a constant, brutal battle for power, it becomes clear that a single misstep could be catastrophic. . . . A monk dreams of transforming his humble abbey into a center of learning that will be admired throughout Europe. And each in turn comes into dangerous conflict with a clever and ruthless bishop who will do anything to increase his wealth and power.

Thirty years ago, Ken Follett published his most popular novel, The Pillars of the Earth. Now, Follett’s masterful new prequel The Evening and the Morning takes us on an epic journey into a historical past rich with ambition and rivalry, death and birth, love and hate, that will end where The Pillars of the Earth begins.
