This incident leads the young woman to live gruesome experiences of sexual passions, all hidden between an old pagan priest and hervery own legal guardian.
The building of a convent, the appearance of a new priest who hides dark secrets, and the jealousy of some of the village girls, turn Madeleine into an object of desire and hatred by many.
Events rush. And the shadow of Lucifer himself enters into the conventto remain and to deceive the young novices… especially to Madeleine Bavent.

Nuns of Evil is a work based on real events, which took place in the village of Louviers in the middle of the 17th century and in the French region of Normandy. It was one of the most striking cases of supposed massive demonic possession in the history.
In this novel, the facts are recreated in the most plausible way. That was possible by taking several bibliographical references on witchcraft, inquisition and demonology. And after years of investigation, all these themes combined have led the author to create this work.

About the author

I was born in the city of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria on November 1st, 1975. After living some years in Seville, I went back to my home town at the age of eight and with a new-found hobby that marked the future of my life: reading. At an early age I read everything that fell into my hands. And when I was nineteen, I started my first novel, (unedited), "The Cave of the Runes." Thanks to my vocation as a writer, my mind has led me to develop from humorous monologues to sociopolitical critiques or short stories, in addition to starting different works that are yet to be concluded. I am a follower of the classics like Dickens, Wilde, Lovecraft or Doyle. My personal library is also full of Canarian and Spanish writers, and great bestsellers of different styles. I have been a radio and television editor; both in general and sports news. And after being a Professional Soldier in the Air Force of Spain for more than ten years, I went back to the civilian life to continue with my writing with the same desire with which I began to read. As I said, from an early age I always felt attracted to the literary world. And the secret could be in the genes, because not long ago, I discovered that I am a direct descendant of Luis de Góngora and Argote; a famous poet and playwright of the Spanish Golden Age. So, it is no wonder then that my greatest hobby is writing. Moreover:It is something that I need like the air that I breathe. In pursuance to complement my work as an author, I also impart writing and literature workshops; an activity that is as enriching as creative, and with which I feel more fulfilled because of my didactic work.

The explosive Robert Langdon thriller from Dan Brown, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Da Vinci Code and Inferno—now a major film directed by Ron Howard and starring Tom Hanks and Felicity Jones.

An ancient secret brotherhood. A devastating new weapon of destruction.

When world-renowned Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to a Swiss research facility to analyze a mysterious symbol—seared into the chest of a murdered physicist—he discovers evidence of the unimaginable: the resurgence of an ancient secret brotherhood known as the Illuminati...the most powerful underground organization ever to walk the earth. The Illuminati has now surfaced to carry out the final phase of its legendary vendetta against its most hated enemy—the Catholic Church.

Langdon’s worst fears are confirmed on the eve of the Vatican’s holy conclave, when a messenger of the Illuminati announces they have hidden an unstoppable time bomb at the very heart of Vatican City. With the countdown under way, Langdon jets to Rome to join forces with Vittoria Vetra, a beautiful and mysterious Italian scientist, to assist the Vatican in a desperate bid for survival.

Embarking on a frantic hunt through sealed crypts, dangerous catacombs, deserted cathedrals, and even the most secretive vault on earth, Langdon and Vetra follow a 400-year-old trail of ancient symbols that snakes across Rome toward the long-forgotten Illuminati lair...a clandestine location that contains the only hope for Vatican salvation.

Lady Kara Kensington's family paid a high price in money and blood to found the gallery that now lies in ruins. And her search for answers is about to lead Kara and her friend Safia al-Maaz, the gallery's brilliant and beautiful curator, into a world they never dreamed actually existed. For new evidence exposed by the tragedy suggests that Ubar, a lost city buried beneath the Arabian desert, is more than mere legend . . . and that something astonishing is waiting there.

Two extraordinary women and their guide, the international adventurer Omaha Dunn, are not the only ones being drawn to the desert. Former U.S. Navy SEAL Painter Crowe, a covert government operative and head of an elite counterespionage team, is hunting down a dangerous turncoat, Crowe's onetime partner, to retrieve the vital information she has stolen. And the trail is pointing him toward Ubar.

But the many perils inherent in a death-defying trek deep into the savage heart of the Arabian Peninsula pale before the nightmarish secrets to be unearthed at journey's end. What is hidden below the sand is more than a valuable relic of ancient history. It is an ageless power that lives and breathes—an awesome force that could create a utopia or tear down everything humankind has built during millennia of civilization. Many lives have already been destroyed by ruthless agencies dedicated to guarding its mysteries and harnessing its might. And now the end may be at hand for Safia, for Kara, for Crowe, and for all the interlopers who wish to expose its mysteries, as it prepares to unleash the most terrible storm of all . . .

In the same cavern system, elaborate primitive paintings tell the story of an immense battle between tribes of Neanderthals and monstrous shadowy figures. Who is this mysterious enemy depicted in these ancient drawings and what do the paintings mean?

Before any answers could be made, the investigative team is attacked, while at the same time, a bloody assault is made upon a primate research center outside of Atlanta. How are these events connected? Who is behind these attacks?  The search for the truth will take Commander Gray Pierce of Sigma Force 50,000 years into the past. As he and Sigma trace the evolution of human intelligence to its true source, they will be plunged into a cataclysmic battle for the future of humanity that stretches across the globe . . . and beyond.

With the fate of our future at stake, Sigma embarks on its most harrowing odyssey ever—a breathtaking quest that will take them from ancient tunnels in Ecuador that span the breadth of South America to a millennia-old necropolis holding the bones of our ancestors. Along the way, revelations involving the lost continent of Atlantis will reveal true mysteries tied to mankind’s first steps on the moon. In the end, Gray Pierce and his team will face to their greatest threat: an ancient evil, resurrected by modern genetic science, strong enough to bring about the end of man’s dominance on this planet.

Only this time, Sigma will falter—and the world we know will change forever.
