A historical novel about 15th-century Barcelona and the advent of the printing press

In the times when Europe marvelled at the printing press invented by Gutenberg, Catalonia was witnessing a previously unimaginable revolution: peasants were rebelling against the abuses of their feudal lords while the king undermined the Catalan institutions.

Through the adventures of two young men in love with the same woman and fighting on opposite sides (a bastard in search of his origins and a fugitive who takes the invention of the printing press to Barcelona), the reader catches a glimpse of a cruel war that will have transcendental historical consequences.

Revolución is an excellent novel about the struggle of the less privileged to conquer the government of the city of Barcelona and, at the same time, a tribute to the power of books to transform the world.
