FREE FICTION | Carlos Ruiz Zafon's origin story of The Cemetery of Forgotten Books

"Rose of Fire" is a short story by Carlos Ruiz Zafon translated by Lucia Graves set in the world of the much beloved The Shadow of the Wind. It tells the origins of Cemetery of Forgotten Books in the fifteenth century. I have just made your day as I know it made mine.

The story is being released for promotion of Zafon's The Prisoner of Heaven, which is just a few short weeks away. You can find the story for free at nearly every major e-book vendor including Nook, Amazon, Kobo, etc.

Go forth and enjoy!

OMG! Is this an excerpt from The Prisoner of Heaven? Zafon does like to jump around in time.

Not as far as I can tell although it does include an excerpt from The Prisoner of Heaven.

What a treat! Thanks for sharing! We'll repost and of course link you back! I think this is different from The Prisoner Of Heaven.

It's a separate "origin" story from PoH. Took me a bit of searching, but I found the story in the original Spanish. Nice that it's free in both languages for readers :D
