And it dawned on me the pure genius of Senor Perez’s storytelling. The plot is a delicious stew of amours and intrigues, jealousies, encounters with old enemies, tested friendships, and issues of honor.

This book is all full of it. Want to Read saving…. Preferring the Dominicans, this younger royal brother is more amenable to the Inquisition. Not God, but his King, for whom he has bled so much, given so much alatrisste his life to.
I can’t wait to read the next one.
The Inquisition is still around so appearance and adherence of the many rules is essential for survival. This is a great addition to the Captain Alatriste series. Madrid was a dangerous place, men’s honour would see friends fight to the death for a minor faux pas.

Even if the wastrel of a king doesn’t deserve Alatriste’s loyalty in the least. The plot ran very smoothly, and felt like an adventure series should– flashing swords, loyal friends, beautiful and perhaps treacherous women, and enemies that show respect to each other on and off the field of battle. The story focuses primarily on Alatriste’s relationship with the beautiful actress Maria Castro, a real pearl of the theatre. Un puro corral de comedia. He put this experience into his book ‘Territorio Comanche’, focusing on the years of Bosnian massacres.
My first book in this series. Previous volumes in the series suffered from a strange distancing effect, partly the result of the narrative construction the events are related in hindsight by the now elderly former apprentice of Easily the best of the ‘Captain Alatriste’ books so far Intrigues at court threaten the relationship and even the life of the king at hand, a plot which is conceived by none other than Gualterio Maletesta, the Captain’s arch nemesis.
Action, history and adventure come together like a whirlpool in these unforgettable pages of dangerous and exciting adventures. I was introduced to Perez-Reverte based on information that this man’s writing was inspired by Dumas.

The final part of the book keeps readers in suspense as Alatriste flees after being falsely accused of murder while avoiding the hand of Maletesta, and in the long run, saving the life of his beloved king from the hands of an assassin.

Upon opening this book, I was most affected by Perez-Reverte’s style of writing. He writes so comfortably, the story rolls off the page so easily and the images that appear in my mind are so vivid.
God, what a great book. I think this is deliberate on the part of the author, to plan the books so you can jump in at any point. More always seemed promised than was actually delivered. The brightest star of the poetry and therefore dramatic firmament is Lope de Vega.
As a reader I never really felt that the events that were being described were close enough: And yet there is one thing that still separates them. A man of honor and dignity no matter what life throws at him. What was good was the description of 17th Century Spain. It rather broke my heart, to the p I devoured the previous Alatriste adventures once I picked them up, but this one I have to admit was a hard start for me.
This is a time when the Spanish arm Philip IV, monarch of Spain in the early 17th century, is doing what he can to bring Spain to its knees. The first person narrator – the young page Inigo Balboa – made me think of the Arthurian knight from Bernard Cornwell Warlord Chronicles: In the end the book was sword fighting, bedding of wenches, betrayal, good guys winning although I think Alatriste is a right real cadmore sword fighting and more bedding of wenches.
He worked as a war reporter for twenty-one years – Meglio dei primi due mi mancano terzo e quarto, introvabiliii. The fifth Captain Alatriste novel. Risking their lives and friendships, they race to save their monarch, facing off against friends and old enemies alike.
