Review from the Blog Boy With Letters

Daniel Perez, author of the Spanish blog Boy With Letters, published a review about the Encuentro Fortuito, the first ebook in the #ElephantMacaw series released in Spain. Daniel compares the adventures of Gerard and Oludara with “The Witcher”, a series of books that later became the famous game franchise with the same name.

Reviews From Spain

Lots of reviews about the Encuentro Fortuito were published in Spain since its release in April. Find out how the Brazilian Mythology was received in the other side of the Atlantic:

– The Sentido de la Maravilla published:
“Tengo que empezar diciendo que, desde que escuché que Sportula iba a publicar la serie de La enseña del elefante y el guacamayo, la obra pasó a estar entre aquellas a las que más ganas les tenía”, wrote Pablo Bueno.

– Santiago Soláns, author of the blog Saga Comics, wrote:
“Kastensmidt, mediante una mezcla explosiva entre mitologías, diálogos muy bien escritos, algo de acción y misterio, mucho humor, tensión y peligro, ofrece una aventura de corte clásico que sobresale por el poco explotado exotismo de folclore, cuentos populares y bestiarios «fantásticos» africanos y brasileños”.

– From Literatura Fantastica:
“Todo lo anterior ofrece como resultado una prosa que atrapa desde un principio al lector, una narración asentada en un tono excelente, buenos diálogos, acertadas reflexiones y abundante sentido del humor”, wrote Mariano Villarreal.

– Fran Vidal from the blog Abro la Puerta y Miro:
“En fín, una lectura harto recomendable que se devora en un momento, a un precio inigualable y que espero que haya tenido el éxito suficiente para ser continuada. El único problema es que solo se puede conseguir en digital, pero espero que la editorial saque algún recopilatorio en papel.”

– The author of the blog Baul de Libros wrote:
“La brevedad de esta primera obra hace que apenas hayamos tastado toda la frescura e originalidad que es capaz de ofrecer Kastensmidt en esta particular saga”.
