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?

The best in the series so far. Arturo Perez- Reverte in “Pirates of the Levant” sees the series heroes Inigo Balboa and Diego “Captain” Alatriste enlisted in the Naples Tercio. “Pirates of the Levant” takes the pair throughout the 17th century Mediterranean world from Naples to North Africa to the Aegean; facing off against English Pirates, Venetian rabble and the Ottoman Navy. This book sees Inigo maturing as a narrator, as he increasingly sees the Spain he inhabits as decaying providing increased historical context. The characters in this book are all new and come across as very well rounded. Well worth a read for those into the series a grade A swashbuckler.
