Book 63: Purity Of Blood
I have been remiss in my reading lately. I don't know why, but i've been so darn lazy. tonight i will not watch television (except LOST) and i will not let my neighbor come over and manipulate my time. i will read!
anyhoo, this is the second in the series i began earlier this year. i thoroughly enjoy this author, and am somewhat sad that i am coming to the end of his works. the next three in this series will be released one per year. drat. this time we are dealing with the inquisition and corruption in the catholic church. due to a job as a hired sword, altatriste loses his page inigo to the inquisition's prisons. it was much more complex than i'm letting on, yet at the same time a nice simple adventure story. i just like the way perez-reverte writes. he chooses his words carefully for the most weight and beauty. this was great and i'm eagerly awaiting the next installment, due out sometime next year.
