Como va a estrenarse dentro de poco “El Séptimo Hijo”, he decidido echarle un ojo a las novelas de las que sale esta historia. Son como 13 libros y que yo sepa solo los 3 primeros están en castellano y ademas son bastante cortitos, lo cual en principio tira para atrás, por aquello de quedarse colgado al comienzo de una saga. Pero bueno algo hay que leer y como el primer disco que compré de crío ahorrando de la paga fue el “Seventh Son of a Seventh Son” de Iron Maiden, no le iba a hacer ascos una historia sobre séptimos hijos y sus capacidades.

Thomas Ward es un chaval de 13 años. Como séptimo hijo (de un séptimo hijo) no tiene mucho futuro trabajando en la granja familiar, que como es tradición heredera el mayor, así que por mediación de su madre, que es un poco especial también, se le asigna el trabajo de ser el aprendiz del espectro de la zona. Un espectro es un poco a su manera lo que Geralt de Rivia es en su mundo. Es decir un tipo que tiene ciertas capacidades para percibir el mundo sobrenatural y lo oscuro y que toma el trabajo de proteger a la población contra ello.

Gregory es el espectro que se encargará de instruir a Thomas para que le sustituya ya que este está haciéndose viejo. En este primer libro le enseñará algunas nociones básicas contra los tipos de Boggarts y le advertirá contra la mala influencia de las mujeres en general y de las que lleven zapatos con punta en particular. Y tal y como es de ley en un aprendiz, Thomas meterá la pata hasta el fondo al conocer a Alice, una chavala con zapatos de punta que resulta estar asociada con un clan de brujas de las malas.

Como primer libro hay que reconocer que se hace muy ameno y se lee en un bocado. Es dinámico, mantiene el interés, presenta el mundo y los personajes sin perderte para nada por el camino y me ha hecho ir directo a por el segundo. No es que sea alta literatura de fantasía, pero es majo de leer, ligero y entretenido.

  1. concuerdo totalmente con el análisis (aunque yo solo leí 2 de los 3 que dices que están en castellano) la verdad es que la película puede estar bien. (solo ver el trailer ya me sonaba cosas)
