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?

  • With swords a-slashing and muskets a-blazing, Pérez-Reverte once again effortlessly channels Rafael Sabatini in this witty and---alas---final novel in a marvelous series. Publishers Weekly

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elli | 1/16/2014

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anna | 5/23/2013

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beth Morgan | 3/31/2013

    " This was, perhaps, my least favorite of the books of Perez-Reverte's that I have read. Although there is much to its credit, it lacked some of the elements that make a book deepy enjoyable, in my opinion. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Monty | 8/1/2012

    " I actually listened to the English-language audiobook, but that was not one of the options made available on this server. Perez-Reverte is the closest in style to a modern Dumas of any contemporary writer. Excellent material, great STYLE. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Scott Pfeiffer | 11/25/2011

    " I love this series, and this was longer and more detailed than the first few. I hope he keeps writing them. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andy | 10/5/2011

    " Not my favorite Captain Alatriste story, but still very good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian Casey | 8/19/2011

    " Another great entry in this very enjoyable series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Don | 7/3/2011

    " Its about 1638 and Captain Alatriste takes to the Eastern Mediterranean leaving a wake of plunder and death. Amidst all the human squalorarises a moment of rare courage. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Curt Hopkins Hopkins | 6/6/2011

    " A bit episodic and not much of a resolution, but exciting toward the end "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Flora | 2/15/2011

    " Numero six of the Alatriste series. I still enjoy him but the endless fighting is beginning to wear on me. I keep hoping more interesting characters will enter the pages. Meantime, I find his description of the historic Spain excellent. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ross Mikos | 11/24/2010

    " Since Dumas is dead I'll continue to settle for Perez-Reverte. Pirates of the Levant is not the best in the series, but Captain Alatriste and his faithful sidekick Inigo swashbuckle with the best of them. "
