Serie: La Saga de Miles Vorkosigan

Pues siguiendo con la saga de los Vorkosigan y mas concretamente con Miles, he leído en segundo lugar esta historia que nos lleva de la mano de un recién licenciado Miles a su primera misión oficial. No es lo que uno esperaría y desde luego no es lo que miles esperaba tampoco y es que por listo y tocacojones su padre le da una lección.

vorkosigan-01_24_zamramuMiles tiene que adentrarse en las partes mas rurales y profundas de su planeta para resolver, en nombre de su padre y de la justicia, un caso de infanticidio. Un mujer pide audiencia con el conde Vorkosigan y Miles por molestar mas que nada, facilita dicha audiencia. El caso que habrá de resolver es el del asesinato de una bebé que nació con labio leporino y por el que la mujer culpa a su marido.

Gracias a esto conocernos mas cosas de la sociedad y la historia del planeta Barrayar. Sabremos de donde viene esa costumbre de matar a los bebes “mutantes” y mas cosas sobre la época del aislamiento. Y es que algo que me llamó la atención de la novela que reseñé el otro día es ese sistema un poco viejuno de gobierno y algunas cosas que se dejan ver de que prácticamente en 2 generaciones pasaron de hacer la guerra con cargas de caballería, a los combates espaciales. Aquí se explica que fue esa época de aislamiento donde después de llegar a colonizar el planeta, quedaron aislados del resto de civilización durante siglos y sin medios ni suministros modernos.

Un relato interesante donde volveremos a ver brillar la mente de Miles Vorkosigan y enfrentar demonios internos por su condición de tullido y el recelo de la parte mas rural de su planeta por considerarlo un mutante mas con el insulto supremo de pasar de asesinar a los niños con alguna clase de deformidad, a tener ahora un bajito y contrahecho hombre como señor. Ahora voy a parar con Miles y hacer un salto temporal al pasado para leer la historia de sus padres y conocer mas de este universo, que me llama también bastante la atención, para después volver directamente a Miles.
