Three novels, three themes

This gave first Storman Orwell-inspired dystopia, a dark and futuristic thriller in dehumanized societytaking up the major themes of our current society, between overconsumption, climate deregulation, new technologiesamong others.

Then it was The mongoose and the cobraanother one exploration of the human soulwhich like the first happens in the not so distant future, where the planet is ruled by a single, dictatorial regime, and where the heir is kidnapped by an opponent. A frame, which wants to be classic in the meeting of two spirits that everything opposes, but which offers a choice of multiple literary routes.
