Important Notice on the Paper Format of Aquilis Serenade


In relation to the current availability & purchase of Aquilis Serenade, be informed that the libraries Proteo, Prometeo and Rayuela, located in Spain, adevertise the distribution of the book “Aquilis Serenade” illegally, under false houses of edition. No copyrights, edition nor distribution agreement has been granted to these parties

It is not known if the offers of these libraries can actually translate in actual deliveries. Regardless, their promotion of the novel is inaccurate and in infringement of the laws of edition, distribution, and copyrights.

Know, that as of today, no paper version is currently available. However be reassured that I am working to release one soon. I am indeed hopeful to be able to propose such format by the end of 2017.

Aquilis Serenade st UK review

“It has happened to me a few times before, with some of the (many) books I have read, to finish the book and hold it in my arms because I did not want to let it go.
It has happened with this book (I was holding my Kindle in this case but it’s the same).
I bought this book because I was attracted by the cover and because I read it was about Berlin, a city I adore.
And I’m so glad I bought it!! I loved every single page, I could not put it down.
The story develops in a way that I did not expect, and it stretches across different periods, which makes it very interesting. I think the historical facts are very well reported and the story develops around them. The parts about the Cold War, the building of the wall and the way the relationships between East and West Germany were evolving are excellent.
The two main characters are so well depicted in their feelings that at the end of the book I felt as if I knew them personally.
Berlin is a big part of this book, and I felt as if I was back there, walking its streets and visiting my favourite places. This book should be a must for whoever loves this fantastic city.
And something I really want to highlight about this novel: it is very well written!!
How wonderful it is for book lovers to find a book with a good story that is also a pleasure to read. The style, the words, the way the story flows, the dialogues, they are all so good. Some sentences are just beautiful.
I searched for other books from this author but I haven’t found any. Hope he will publish more. Highly recommended!”

Since his early age, Joe had always had one wish: Fly.

Not content with flying above the farmlands of California, Joe longs for the thrill of higher and faster adventures. Against the laws of his uncommitted country, he decides to flee across countries and an ocean to join the ranks to fight that war in Europe.

When his plane crashes in the heart of the enemy land and he is saved and hidden by a German family, Joe discovers that a ´kite´ is not the only thing able to make his heart fly.

His encounter with Hanne, a young girl trapped in a strict and uneventful country life, will change his life forever, and hers as well. But the reality of war soon catches up with them. As they must run and their paths separate, Joe feels that his wings are cut off once again.

Alone now, Hanne moves to Berlin, to a city where new opportunities await her. There, she sets herself to answer her calling, only to find out that it comes at a cost and she finds herself caught in the game of spies of a new and cold War.

But, neither Hanne nor Joe have forgotten the stranger they have met and lost in the fog of war. And just as fortune eases its hold on their strangled passion, one early summer morning of 1961, a wall rises. Everything changes. Her city, her country and the world are split and so is their destiny.

A story stretching beyond the fires of World War II well into the intrigues of the Cold War, in the streets full of shadows of a disputed Berlin, will leave an indelible mark on the lives of two characters forbidden by conflicts of steel, ideas and a wall.

“He thought that God must be laughing at his expenses, at the cruel trick of making him a man with the heart of a bird.”
