Sandra Aza is a lawyer and she practiced law for years before taking new directions that took her steps away from the courts.
Passionate about history and its stories, she dedicated the suns to writing legal briefs and the moons to cherishing a dream: to change and turn to literature. One day the heart overthrew the reason; she hung up her toga, dressed herself in illusion and, with a novel in her entrails that was struggling to see the light, she entered the world of the muses. Thus, was born Libelo de sangre, a historical crime novel set in Madrid in 1620, in whose pages the reader will live a thrilling adventure immersed in the society of the Golden Age and also immersed in one of the most feared and fascinating institutions of all time: The Holy Inquisition.
Despite being Sandra Aza’s debut novel, the novel has received a multitude of excellent reviews, being considered one of the best historical novels of 2020 by critics of enormous influence in the genre.
