What if the reality was something more than what you’ve always known?
In the basement of her house, Kala has found some half-built wings. Her most intimate dream, being able to fly, seems to finally come true. Outraged by the lies used to capture her, the One, in whom everyone hopes to defeat L’Esfera, places the artifact, jumps into l’Aisme and flies. A dirty, clumsy city awaits you under the clouds. The wings have been shown solely to give a sense of proportion. Unexpected dangers and various characters surround l’Única while, three kilometers above her head, the Mà Oberta prepares a new plan to rescue her and keep fighting.

What readers say
«This book shows us, once again, the perfect combination of the two narrative styles of Muriel Villanueva and Roger Coch, creating a novel, even if it seems impossible, even better than the previous one. It will leave you thinking about what you just read, its true meaning and how it made you feel even hours after you finished it. Les ales d’Ìcar will make you laugh, cry, love, hate, fly, from the first page.»
«I was hooked from the first page to the last. I couldn’t stop reading. The intrigue generated by each chapter made it impossible for me to stop reading because I wanted to know what would happen. It has an amazing ending, where a turn of events causes everything to twist and not go as planned. A point that gives you even more intrigue if it can. There are also very unexpected situations that undoubtedly fill you with emotion. In addition, the ending is quite open, so it does not give you the chance to imagine what is going to happen in the third book and makes you want to read it even more.»

«Maybe we let the teenagers at home put aside their cell phones and the hunt for critters to read a book that will not leave them indifferent. After reading the rest, it’s all about word of mouth. It is a highly addictive and recommended adventure.»
Àngela Sánchez Vicente, La Petita Llibreria.
«I couldn’t like it anymore and its ending has left such a mark on me that I’m already looking forward to reading the last part. I highly recommend this trilogy as it is something never seen before. A different story wherever they are, but at the same time perfect»
