Basilisco, by Jon Bilbao is a great book, although coming from the publisher Impedimenta it does not surprise me.
We cannot begin this work without knowing what it is a basilisk, a mythological creature that can kill with its sight. With the body of a snake and a crest, it was considered the king of snakes. there are a lot of mythology behind it, and this is not the article for it.
I liked it very much, but I have been left with the feeling that I have not finished understanding everything, that I have fringes in the air that I have not managed to capture and that it needs a second reading.
