All strings must be XML compatible?

I just bought a kindle book on Amazon. I try to view it on Calibre but I get the below message. I can't view it nor convert it.

This is the first time something like that happens. Usually I can view books no problems.

Any help would be appreciated!

Thank you.



calibre, version 0.8.57
