From the Author
1. Written without any plotting or outline.
2. Too many books give us ready answers; the author some way is chewing the idea and all we have to do is "digest" it. But I want you to think, to imagine, to create... that's why this book has of a lot of mysteries - I'm simply giving you the space to move; to use your own fantasy.
3. I added digital portraits for 6 heroes: Dulcinea, Erik, Osa, Loo, Brolle and Joel. And also a couple of poems.

The main character and the references to the X-men series place Victoria Ray’s book on a large variety of shelves, begining with those of the teenagers. It is also suitable for a more mature reader due to the ideological background that is woven through the allegorical story of Dulcinea.
The power of word is revealed by the author’s choice regarding the name of the protagonist, a fact that contributes to the creation of a fresh character that carries all the spiritual beauty and grace of the classical female figure combined with the power, energy and determination of the contemporary woman.
The writing style and the multiple perspectives, powdered with the light poetry make Dulcinea and the Death Code not only a pleasant and relaxing reading, but also a complex literary work that emphasizes the ingenuity of its author. The space allotted to each hero accompanied by a specific point of view and a digital portrait constitutes a pleasant surprise.
I love fantasy novels and the title, and cover, of this one really struck me and made me buy it. It's instantly intriguing and I wanted to know more. Plus the blurb felt like a great episode of Doctor Who to me and I love me some Doctor Who.
I'm also a huge fan of strong female characters. The kind of don't hide when something horrible happens. The kind that girls like my niece and look up to and take their strength and use it in their lives. Dulcinea goes through a lot, most of it would have completely derailed a lot of people, but she handles it beautifully and I think that's so important to show girls now. It can be a mysterious crack and a hidden secret or it can be the bully at school, girls need to be shown that they have strength and that they can handle whatever gets thrown at them and Dulcinea's strength and how beautifully she's written is why I'm glad I read this book and why I'm saying that other people should too because good fantasy novels for teens that combine the best of Doctor Who and the best of Joss Whedon are great to find and definitely deserve to be read.
The story revolves around a teenager girl who experiences out-of-the world phenomena. The very idea presented by the author of popping into existence from strange forces got me pondering on the possibility of such an occurrence. What would I do if this was to happen to me? Am not sure whether I would be fascinated or scared- but I know it would completely take a toll on my identity and beliefs.
The story is set in a very unique way, which differentiates it from the typical books flooding the market. And despite featuring a teenager as the main character, I felt so gripped and absorbed into the story that I now consider it as one of the books I ‘can’t put down’.

She is a polyvalent and clever writer.Dulcinea is more than a main character, she is a nowadays heroine that brings in a fantastic world where you can indeed see some shadow of reality too.
I am planning to pass the book to my nearly teenager daughter soon as I believe she will enjoy it and benefit from it, like I did.
The book is interesting and offbeat. It is written in lucid language and thus is easy to read and follow. The world building is gradual and effortless to get into. Descriptions are vivid but not over done or boring.
But the plot had a lot more potential than what has been done with it. Plus a lot of questions and situations were left unanswered at the end. But as it happens to be a part of the series probably those will be answered in the next one.
Also I love the cover and the title of the novel. Both are so attractive.
