Captain Alatriste - Arturo Pérez-Reverte
At the Borders last days sales, I got a copy of a book in this series, but it's one of the later books, so I had to read the previous books and hence got this from the library. I enjoyed this book, it had just the right amount of swashbuckling adventure and court/political intrigue. The setting is 17th-century Spain and I love historical fiction (and costume dramas on film/TV) so this was a fun, fast read. Recommended.
