If you haven’t read this series, and you love a bit of historical fiction mixed in with some down-to-earth realism God, what a great book. Everything is clear and close, immediate and hard.
Por fin una de las aventuras de Alatriste que resulta impecable! Esta 5ta entrega de la serie hace derroche de intriga, misterios, peligro y sobre cabalpero, de un rico desarrollo de los personajes. Trivia About El caballero del At the time the story takes placeCervantes has died a few years before, impoverished and scorned as a literary figure of no merit.
Previous volumes in the series suffered from a strange distancing effect, partly the result of the narrative construction the daballero are related in hindsight by the now elderly former apprentice of Alatriste himself. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. That knowledge should take away from the suspense, but the action is so tense and so much is at stake, it makes me forget!
Jun 11, Irene rated it liked it. And yet there is one thing that still separates them. Inigo, the young swain, is also finding himself in unlikely difficulties that he can’t seem to stay out of. Do you not know the difference? The Inquisition is still around so appearance and adherence of the many rules is essential for survival.
The historical accuracy, intrigue, and overall devilishness made this one absolutely irresistable and I could not put it down! Refresh and try again.

Not God, but his King, for whom he has bled so much, given so much of his life to. Thanks for telling us about the problem. I can’t wait to read the next one. 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.
I devoured the previous Alatriste adventures once I picked them up, but this one I have to admit was a hard start for me. As for me it was the most boring book from all the series about captain Alatriste. View all 4 comments. More always seemed promised than was actually delivered.
Just a man, doing the best he can to raise this boy well and maybe get a little enjoyment out of this life that usually kicks him in the balls and walks away. It is also a time when upholding one’s honor against all, even the most minuscule offenses, are reason for duel’s and outright murder.

The womanizing Phillip IV becomes Alatriste’s rival for the same woman, putting the Captain on the collision course plot that ends well, but by the skin of his teeth. A court favorite, who writes poetry for the king and plays for the queen, is Francisco de Quevedo, another historical literary figure who, along with a famous actress and her husband, figure prominently in the story.
Maybe the others have a bit more zim as this one zig-zagged along to a predictable conclusion.
No es malo y tiene sus momentos, pero es el que menos me ha gustado de la serie. 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 This book is all full of it.
We’re far enough along in the books where the events that he has been foreshadowing in the past books are starting to crop up with more frequency, and it’s a uubon of fun to recognize amsrillo when they happen. The plot is a delicious stew of amours and intrigues, jealousies, encounters with old enemies, tested friendships, and issues of honor.
Oh how easy it is to forget what a wonderful writer Arturo Perez-Reverte or his translator in this series He started his journalistic career writing for the now-defunct newspaper Pueblo. The fact that Alatriste still serves something greater than himself.
Spanish novelist and ex-journalist. The second half made up for the leisure pace of the beginning with emotional intensity ramped up and actual cloak and dagger duels.
I would definitely reccommend this to anyone who is looking for a modern day contemporary of Alexandre Dumas. I love these books, and am almost reluctant to pick up the next one, which is the last one I have in translation I understand there might be more?
Still, this series is highly addictive for me. He put this experience into his book ‘Territorio Comanche’, focusing on the years of Bosnian massacres. I skipped some volumes in the series due to my fumbling of library requests, but reading the fifth book after the first was cavallero really a problem – the plot is self-contained and various references to events in previous books are not really spoilerish.
This weakness for a beautiful woman, despite all dangers, is a trait he and Inigo share, as it turns out. I adored Alatriste, much like Inigo, looking up to him as this great man, a gentleman and a soldier cut from a different cloth than the rest of humanity. In this fifth installment of the Drl Alatriste series, Inigo now nearly 17 and his mentor discover a plot to murder the king.
Preferring the Dominicans, this younger royal brother is more amenable to the Inquisition. As a reader I never really felt that the events that were being described were close enough: Things begin to fall apart and friends don’t know who to believe or who to support, and poets and playwrights maintain the arts.

Paperbackpages. A commendable piece of research. I realized that I read out of order and skipped The King’s Gold, in which basically Perez-Reverte jbuon my revelations about Alatriste’s state of mind in the jhbon ten pages.
Although it took me awhile to get through The Sun Over Breda and I couldn’t imagine how the author could top The King’s Gold without getting overly dramatic or even silly, this book exceeded my expectations and is probably my favorite of the series, with the exception of the first book of course.
