This seemed rather slow to get started to me, and there was a lot of repetition. The narrator is very fond of relating how some other character would die, years after this story, and of mourning the greatness of Spain in the previous century. Again and again-- I think the book might have lost 10-20 pages by excising either of these themes.

The plot ran very smoothly, and felt like an adventure series should-- flashing swords, loyal friends, beautiful (and perhaps treacherous) women, and enemies that show respect to each other on and off the field of battle.
