Nicolás Manfredi does such a great job with this book. I loved it. He knows his subject and creates authentic ambiance that really draws the reader in and allows you to be immersed in his world. Wonderful characters, strong storytelling. I am excited about whatever Nicolás Manfredi is working on next. He’s awesome!

"El hombre encerrado. Cuentos de Juan Pretor" de Nicolás Manfredi es una colección de relatos que funciona casi como una novela de las que pueden definirse como "de la espada y la hechicería" pero que a veces nos deja percibir un ritmo poético singular.
Texto ágil que permite una lectura atenta a un buen ritmo lector.
Desde el inicio nos cautiva el personaje de Juan Pretor, que lucha por sus ideales al estilo casi quijotesco.
Juan es un tipo noble, con ideales cristianos que no rechaza luchar en fa

I got this book in a goodreads giveaway and got pretty excited about it.
But unfortunately I didn't enjoy it as much as I thought I would.
The stories are not bad and my favorite is El colgante.
But being a fan of vampire stories (and having never liked zombies) what bothered me the most on this book was how weak the vampires were, when a guy alone is able to easily kill many at once (they almost feel like the weakling zombies!...)
I was also a bit bothered by the good vs evil fight, with the good b

Nota: Recibí una copia gratuita de este libro a cambio de una opinión honesta. Todas las opiniones son mías y esto no afectó mi crítica de ninguna manera.

Cuando empecé a leer este libro no sabía de que trataba o a que me iba a enfrentar. Me da mucho gusto decir que este libro, aunque no es algo que leo seguido, me gusto mucho y mantuvo mi atención.

It is a very immersive book full of good old-fashioned adventures and a constant sense of epicness. The story tells a very human quest to become a better self, set in medieval times, with just the sweet amount of fantasy to raise the story into a legend and allow the reader to feel the excitement of mystery.

I must add that the author clearly knows a lot about the european culture of the time and knows how to use this knowledge to his advantage to create a great sense of being in place. I'll be l
