As for me it was the most boring book from all the series about captain Alatriste. The plot is a delicious stew of amours and intrigues, jealousies, encounters with old enemies, tested friendships, and issues of amari,lo.
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.
