El Capitán Alatriste Epub â El Capitán  Epub / It is the height of Spain s celebrated golden century but beyond the walls of the Royal Palace there is little on the streets of Madrid that glitters The Invincible Armada has been defeated The shadow of the Inquisition looms large And the Thirty Years War rages on in Flanders When a courageous soldier of this war, Captain Diego Alatriste, is forced to retire after being wounded in battle, he returns home to live the comparatively tame though hardly quiet life of a swordsman for hire In this dangerous city where a thrust of steel settles all matters, there is no stronger blade than Alatriste s The captain is approached with an offer of work that involves giving a scare to some strangers soon to arrive in Madrid But on the night of the attack, it becomes clear that these aren t ordinary travelers and that someone is out for their blood What happens next is the first in a series of riveting twists, with implications that will reverberate throughout the courts of Europe No era el hombre m s honesto ni el m s piadoso, pero era un hombre valiente Con estas palabras empieza El capit n Alatriste, la historia de un soldado veterano de los tercios de Flandes que malvive como espadach n a sueldo en el Madrid del siglo XVII Sus aventuras peligrosas y apasionantes nos sumergen sin aliento en las intrigas de la Corte de una Espa a corrupta y en decadencia, las emboscadas en callejones oscuros entre el brillo de dos aceros, las tabernas donde Francisco de Quevedo compone sonetos entre pendencias y botellas de vino, o los corrales de comedias donde las representaciones de Lope de Vega terminan a cuchilladas Todo ello de la mano de personajes entra ables o fascinantes el joven igo Balboa, el implacable inquisidor fray Emilio Bocanegra, el peligroso asesino Gualterio Malatesta, o el diab lico secretario del rey, Luis de Alqu zar Acci n, historia y aventura se dan cita en estas p ginas inolvidables.

    Short and elegant a worthy addition to the panoply of memorable swashbucklers and a promising start of a long historical epic The plot is simple, and the action scenes relatively few The strong points are the recreation of the Madrid society around 1620 and the evocative language The story alternates between first person narration by the young page Inigo Balboa and third person view I wish I was fluent in Spanish and could read this in the original , especially the poems Captain
