Le compré este libro a mi padre por su cumpleaños. Para que no se diga que matamos la literatura en papel, se lo regalé aparte de un nuevo Kindle Paperwhite para jubilar el suyo anterior. El caso es que me estaba llamando al atención y cuando lo terminó, me lo lleve unos días para echarle un ojo y ha resultado una sorpresa muy grata para mi.

Es una novela de aventuras en la mar a la que no le falta de nada. La premisa nos presenta a un joven pendenciero, crápula y odiable, que huye del Madrid de 1635 para salvar la vida. Por sus malas formas he hecho un enemigo poderoso, quien con mas razón que un santo, contrata a un sicario para que le limpie el forro al tal Telmo.

La familia de Telmo es originaria de Gipuzkoa, y hacia Donosti parte, seguido de cerca por el sicario. Tan de cerca que por pura casualidad y como toda buena aventura que se precie, en una taberna escucha a unos hombres hablar de que van a hacerse a la mar al amanecer con la marea, rumbo a Terranova. Telmo gasta sus dineros en comprar una plaza en dicho viaje y así es como se ve camino a la américas en una expedición ballenera.

Pero esto es solo la premisa y desde aquí la evolución de Telmo es pareja a la evolución de la aventuras que la tripulación del “Gloria” vivirá en alta mar. Ademas hay otra historia entremezclada y ocurrida 20 años antes que afectará al destino de los marineros hasta cotas épicas.

Tenemos ballenas, piratas ingleses, corsarios, isla Tortuga, arponeros carismáticos, inquisición, motines, sablazos, abordajes, tretas, amor trágico hasta el infinito, enemistades enquistadas y un imperio en ruina y decadencia. En definitiva una novela de aventuras, muy entretenida y que he disfrutado mucho. Toda una sorpresa para mi.
