Con un pretexto de estudiar a fondo la vida de La Reina Juanade Castilla, mejor conocida como Juana La Loca, Manuel, unhistoriador de la universidad Complutense, y Lucía, una jovenestudiante, se entrelazan en una apasionante historia de amor.

Planteando un juego donde la narración se hará a través de lavisión y uso de las ropas del estilo del siglo XVI, Manuel describey narra la vida de la Reina Juana de Castilla, unamujer visionaria dentro de una sociedad machista que no la reconoce como reina, aunque lo ejerce, sino la reduce por su condición de mujer y sus desplantes a ser encerrada, declarándola loca, y así terminar sus días en 1555.Se plantean varias preguntas en esta novela - si en verdad enloqueció de amor, o los celos y la impotencia la hacían tener exabruptos que los irracionales sacerdotes y gente de la corte la catalogaban como loca.Ofue víctima de las intrincadas redes de la política y ambición. Como una vidente o espiritista, Lucía acepta que Juana la Loca entre en su cuerpo y su mente para contar su visión de los hechos.

    " I would have given it one star but on the whole the story was pretty good if you can get past the pedophilic behavior of the grown man. It creeped me out and I found myself scanning over those parts very quickly. The historic story portion of the plot I found very interesting. "

    " OK, so I read this book in SPANISH, El Pergamino de la Seduccion, and I'll admit, it was just totally trashy historical romance... But I HAD to read it because it was about Juana la Loca and it was written in Castillian Spanish! I read it when did a homestay in Mexico, so I felt like a teenage daughter hiding in my room, reading steamy stuff I wasn't supposed to (much like the protagonist herself) and reading it in Spanish rather than English was more fun because it added another layer of mystique --- from the way it was written, reading the book was like solving a mystery - a predicable one, but a mystery nonetheless. "

    " Cautivante desde la primera pagina. "

    " Although this book is a bit on the wierd side (a 17yr old and an older man) the story is so compelling. You know so much about Queen Katharine of Aragon that it is so interesting to get to know about her sister, Queen Juana. A very complex love story she ends up having, which of course (sarcasm), dubs the woman as a crazy, its intiguing to see this play out in present day. A great historical fiction read with interesting twists that will keep the reader engaged. I highly recommend. "
