This was a time when Spain was revered, feared, and hated in the easterly seas; when the devil had no color, no name, and no flag; and when the only thing needed to summon hell on earth (or sea) was a Spaniard and his sword.

Accompanied by his faithful foster son, Íñigo, Captain Alatriste accepts a job as a mercenary aboard a Spanish galleon. The ship sets sail from Naples on a journey that will take them to some of the most remote—and wretched—outposts of the empire: Morocco, Algeria, and finally to Malta for a stunning and bloody battle on the high seas that will challenge even the battle-hardened Alatriste’s resolve.

Now seventeen, Íñigo is almost ready to leave Alatriste, his foster father and fellow soldier. But will age and experience bring wisdom, or is he likely to repeat many of his mentor’s mistakes?

    " I've liked this better than any of the other Perez-Reverte's. It revolves a youngster having been raised and mentored by a dear friend of his soldier father's after his death who was Captain Alatriste. Intense depth on all the characters, but particularly gives the reader a mindset of a 17th century Spanish soldier through his own eyes and attitudes. Very well done! "

    " I gave up at about the halfway point; it just didn't hold my interest at all. "

    " This is the second novel in Perez-Reverte's series about a Spanish soldier named Diego Alatriste. I haven't had a chance to read the first novel, but the second book reads nicely as a solo novel. It takes place during the 17th century and focuses mostly on Alatriste's adventures in the Mediterranean chasing down corsairs and pirates. It's an interesting and entertaining read, mostly because of the realistic depiction of what life what like in the Mediterranean in the 17th century. "

    " Another swashbuckling good time from Mr Perez-Reverte. I read everything he cranks out, and the Alatriste novels have yet to disappoint. "
