Not sure if this is common to the series, but there is also a lot about Spanish writing, poets and the theatre. The first person narrator – the young page Inigo Balboa – made me think of the Arthurian knight from Bernard Cornwell Warlord Chronicles: The Captain, of course, cannot be told what to do, and alienates friends and enemies alike by continuing to see the actress.

Everything is clear and close, immediate and hard. He won back my respect, and I jbuon him more than ever. 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. Open Preview See a Problem?
What makes Alatriste the White Hat, as it were. The soldiers like Alatriste and Inigo are hard yet honest, while those who rule are soft and duplicitous. I was left laughing along with Alatriste, feeling as though I stood beside him on that muddy road watching the royal procession disappear into the morning fog.

Book by book I am losing interest in the story. Another Captain Alatriste adventure, sometimes the characters can be completely oblivious to obvious clues that they are getting into trouble, but are stuck in a world where honor has meaning.

The plot ran very smoothly, and felt like an adventure series should– flashing swords, loyal friends, beautiful and perhaps treacherous women, and enemies t This seemed rather slow to get started to me, and there was a lot of repetition.
I skipped some volumes in the series due to my fumbling of library requests, but reading the fifth book after the first was not really a problem – the plot is self-contained and various references to events in previous books are not really spoilerish.

Love hurts, the young man learns. Refresh and try again. Just a man, doing the best he can to raise this boy jjubon and maybe get a little enjoyment out of this life that usually kicks him in the balls and walks away.
