Como os dije al reseñar el primer libro de esta saga, me gustó lo suficiente como para seguirla, al menos los 3 que están en castellano. Y esta segunda parte me ha gustado bastante mas que la primera. Aquí ya están los personaje presentados y podemos meternos en harina. Tom lleva ya unos meses de aprendiz del espectro y ha sido capaz de apresar el solo, porque el espectro esta muy enfermo, a un Boggart destripador, la clase mas peligrosa. Lamentablemente en ese lance, uno de los 7 hermanos del espectro, el que era sacerdote, muere.

Thomas y John Gregory, que es nombre del espectro, viajaran a Priestown para el entierro del hermano de este, con el que no se hablaba desde hacia mucho años por temas que ya veremos a lo largo del libro, aparte del hecho de ser espectro. En esa ciudad de sacerdotes, con inmensas catedrales, existe un ser de lo oscuro, que habita apresado en las catacumbas de la catedral. Este ser conocido como La Pesadilla es un antiguo dios y estuvo a punto de costarle la vida al espectro hace años. Ahora esta recuperando poder y desde sus catacumbas puede corromper a gente de la superficie para que la proporcionen la sangre que necesita para alimentarse. Y entre esas gentes corruptas por lo oscuro, esta el alto inquisidor que lleva una cruzada personal contra los espectros y cuya crueldad le lleva a torturar y condenar a la hoguera, por puro placer, a todo aquel que se le antoja.

Este es un libro mucho mejor que el primero como digo, y con un ritmo muy rápido. Tenemos a la dupla maestro-aprendiz, a Alice que por x motivos también esta en Priestown y conoceremos mas cosas del pasado del espectro, de la madre de Tom, de la mitología de la región y de los hermanos vivos del espectro. Me ha gustado bastante y ya me he metido con el tercero y he pedido a amazon un bestiario de este mundo que hay en inglés bastante baratito, para leer sobre las criaturas. Muy recomendable fantasía.
