Characters by The Prisoner of Heaven by Carlos Ruiz Zafón.

The book begins one year after the wedding of Daniel Sempere and Beatrix Aguliar. This is a direct sequel to Zafon’s first novel The Shadow of the Wind.

Daniel Sempere has settled into married life well and his son is shortly turning one year old. Though business has declined further in recent years Fermin still finds a place at the prisuonero and continues to source rare books while bringing a smile to the faces of the customers.


The Prisoner of Heaven

One day a mysterious man arrives and asks about a rare and expensive copy of The Count of Monte Cristo that’s kept in a display case behind the counter. He purchases the book from Don Sempere Snr and writes an inscription on the cover page:.

The book is left as a gift for Fermin. When Fermin returns to the bookshop later that and is upset by the gift that’s been left for him. While in prison Fermin, inspired by the story of The Count of Monte Cristoescapes by taking the place of a dead cell mate, stealing a key from the stranger. Knowing the stranger has finally tracked him down, Fermin, with the help of Daniel, attempts to locate the man and come to an arrangement before he’s required to pay the ultimate price.

The morality of men’s action during war is explored throughout the book and it’s contrasted against acceptable behaviour post-war. Deception plays a large role in how the characters interact with each other and the influence their lies have on their future e.

Fermin’s explanation of his past to the Sempere’s, Daniel’s avoidance of his zfon problems. The Prisoner of Heaven highlights the unreliability of the narrator in The Angel’s Game and sheds light on the mental instability of David Martin who has fallen further into insanity in the flashbacks from Fermin’s time in prison.


As a result, major aspects of The Angel’s Game are called into question including whether David was ever truly healed of his brain tumour. Like Zafon’s earlier novels, The Prisoner of Heaven follows a non-linear structure. The core of the book is written zaofn the first person from Daniel’s point of view; however, the plot relies on flashbacks in the third person.
