Summary

Una novela oscura y mágica, una inolvidable colaboración entre dos de los narradores más renombrados de nuestros días: Guillermo del Toro y Cornelia Funke.

En un reino subterráneo, donde no existían las mentiras ni el dolor, una princesa soñaba con los humanos. Un día escapó a nuestro mundo, el sol borró sus recuerdos y la princesa murió, pero su espíritu era inmortal. El rey no se daría por vencido: tenía la esperanza de que su hija regresara a casa algún día. En otro cuerpo. En otro tiempo. Quizás en otro lugar. Esperaría...  hasta su último aliento, hasta el final de los tiempos...

Atmosférica y absorbente, inspirada por la cinta ganadora del Oscar, y con material original que amplía la historia, esta arrebatadora novela ilustra espléndidamente que la fantasía es el artilugio más sagaz para develar los milagros y los terrores de la realidad.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

Fans of dark fairy-tales like The Hazel Wood and The Cruel Prince will relish this atmospheric and absorbing book based on Guillermo del Toro’s critically acclaimed movie.

Oscar winning writer-director Guillermo del Toro and New York Times bestselling author Cornelia Funke have come together to transform del Toro’s hit movie Pan’s Labyrinth into an epic and dark fantasy novel for readers of all ages, complete with haunting illustrations and enchanting short stories that flesh out the folklore of this fascinating world.

This spellbinding tale takes readers to a sinister, magical, and war-torn world filled with richly drawn characters like trickster fauns, murderous soldiers, child-eating monsters, courageous rebels, and a long-lost princess hoping to be reunited with her family.

A brilliant collaboration between masterful storytellers that’s not to be missed.

“Perfectly unsettling and deeply felt, this reminded me of the best kind of fairytales wherein each chapter is a jewel that, when held up to the light, reframes how we see the world around us.”
—Roshani Chokshi, New York Times bestselling author of The Star-Touched Queen and Aru Shah and the End of Time

“A fearless and moving adaption of the film, and a gorgeously written, emotional, frightening parable about the courage of young women amid the brutality of war.” 
—Michael Grant, New York Times bestselling author of Gone
