the graffiti artist banksy reappears in london with two new

This time it’s about the presentation of El príncipe de los prodigios that I went to in Salamanca on Friday. I had been wanting to read something by this author for a long time because everyone speaks wonders of her and rightly so. At Christmas I got two books by Helena Lennox and I devoured them in a week despite being in exams JAJAJAJ I already told you about La ciudad de las sombras in the blog but my favorite has been El príncipe de los prodigios.
In the presentation Victoria told us a bit about everything, starting by telling us a bit about the book (no spoilers) and about Helena’s adventure this time in Naples, with the mystery of a series of murders taking place in the city and references to an important character from the past, Raimondo di Sangro (also known as Prince of Prodigies) and his peculiar and advanced alchemical inventions.

He is a calm, unperturbed man, with a blank stare. She watches him walk away. After the door closes, Victoria slowly regains the normality of her facial features and begins to forget the incident.
The interview was over. With little hope of getting the job, Victoria gets on the elevator. She closes the door and presses the button to descend to the first floor. She hears a long, high-pitched sound in the distance, to which she pays no attention. A minute later, when he arrives, the door opens, and he is surprised by what he sees: a group of firefighters is coming down the stairs at full speed. One of them is carrying the hose, dragging it down the steps. A policeman points to him in a raised tone:
