Anna MundowAlatriste, his young protege Inigo and his battered comrades are tired of adventures. But they need another one that pays well. An air of cynical resignation pervades The King's Gold. Perez-Reverte, even as he stages exhilarating scenes, darkens the mood, making this novel one of his finest…Even stock scenes of romantic assignation, swordplay, torture and execution appear fresh and profound in these pages, tinged as they are with longing for a time that never was as glorious as other swashbucklers would have us believe.
