A #1 international bestseller reminiscent of the works of Roberto Bolaño, Carlos Ruiz Zafon, and Edward Rutherford—a page-turning historical epic, set in early eighteenth-century Spain, about a military mastermind whose betrayal ultimately leads to the conquest of Barcelona, from the globally popular Catalonian writer Albert Sánchez Piñol. Why do the weak fight against the strong? At 98, Martí Zuviría ponders this question as he begins to tell the extraordinary tale of Catalonia and its annexation in 1714. No one knows the truth of the story better, for Martí was the very villain who betrayed the city he was commended to keep. The story of Catalonia and Barcelona is also Martí’s story. A prestigious military engineer in the early 1700s, he fought on both sides of the long War of the Spanish Succession between the Two Crowns—France and Spain—and aided an Allied enemy in resisting the consolidation of those two powers. Politically ambitious yet morally weak, Martí carefully navigates a sea of Machiavellian intrigue, eventually rising to a position of power that he will use for his own mercenary ends. A sweeping tale of heroism, treason, war, love, pride, and regret that culminates in the tragic fall of a legendary city, illustrated with battle diagrams, portraits of political figures, and priceless maps of the old city of Barcelona, Victus is a magnificent literary achievement that is sure to be hailed as an instant classic.

In this sweeping tale of heroism, treason, war, love, and regret, Albert Sánchez Piñol breathes new life into the infamous siege of a legendary city. At the turn of the eighteenth century a dark cloud looms over Spain. Her "bewitched" ruler dies without a clear successor, pitting two of Europe's most powerful kings against each other for control of the crown. Caught in the crosshairs of war, the Catalonian state finds herself in a bloody contest for independence. Abandoned by their allies and outnumbered tenfold, the defiant and ill-equipped citizens of Barcelona defend their homeland with vicious determination. Martí Zuviría, an accomplished military engineer and tactician with the power to change history, leads the defense against the Bourbons, but he is torn between his loyalties and his purse. Politically ambitious yet morally weak, Martí fights on both sides of the long War of the Spanish Succession, carefully navigating a sea of Machiavellian intrigue and betraying the city he was commended to keep. Rich in color and characters, abundant in epic battles, and illustrated with stunning portraits of war, Victus is a magnificent literary achievement that is destined to become classic.

Counterterrorism Specialist Pepper McCallan and Agent Brent Cahill are called upon by President Cecil Scott to investigate a terrorist attack by a group identifying itself as Victus. Pepper and Brent fend off personal assassination attempts while investigating a pestilence of sharpshooter insects on California's grapevines, causing panic among farmers. The first bioterrorism war on American soil has begun. President Scott receives a blackmail letter from Victus, threatening to destroy more of America's natural resources unless he agrees to supply free food to famished nations. The President desperately needs Pepper and Brent to solve who is behind Victus before they strike again. Brent's brother, Reed Cahill, fires up a blazing hot romance with Blaire Starr, a young, powerful financier in Minneapolis. Reed and Blaire attempt to keep their love affair a secret from family members in Minneapolis, but Reed needs to return to his winery in Australia. Can he convince Blaire to leave her lucrative, high powered job in Minneapolis to join him at Margaret River Winery? Meanwhile, a baby is born with 'swastika tattoos' on his eyelids, just like his parents had inked on their own eyelids, inciting nationwide scrutiny and unrest as fringe groups rally and condemn. While the public is fascinated with the baby's tattoos, Brent and Pepper also are confronted with a troubling tattoo as they try to identify Victus. "Victus" is Part I of the two-part Margaret River Winery story. Part II takes place in Australia and will be released in early 2016.

VAE VICTUS narra cuatro nuevas aventuras del ingeniero Martí Zuviría. El libro comienza el 12 de septiembre de 1714, el día siguiente de la caída de Barcelona y poco antes de que Zuviría huya a Norteamérica, donde ayudará a los indios yamas en la guerra contra los colonos ingleses. Después de la aventura americana, volveremos a Cataluña, pero también iremos a Londres, Alemania e incluso a Nueva Zelanda. Nos reencontraremos con personajes históricos que ya conocimos en VICTUS, como el ambiguo duque de Berwick, su acérrimo enemigo Verboom o el admirado general Villarroel, al mismo tiempo que descubriremos a algunos nuevos, como el famoso guerrillero antiborbónico Pere Joan Barceló –alias Carrasclet– o el explorador inglés James Cook. Sánchez Piñol confirma con VAE VICTUS su pulso narrativo, un equilibrio prodigioso entre el rigor histórico y la imaginación más desbordante y un sentido del humor que convierten su prosa en una de las más modernas y a la vez populares de nuestro tiempo.
