Currently Reading: The sun over Breda

By Arturo Perez-Reverte.

This is the third in the series, the first being set in Madrid. This is set in Netherlands during war time between the Spanish-Austrian empire and the heretic Dutch, English and French. Like the previous two novels, the setting of early 1600’s Spain and Europe makes an exciting background for an adventure tale. In the previous two books we got entangled with the royal courts and the Spanish church and the Inquisition. Sun over Breda is a lesson in life for Spanish soldiers in Flanders during war with insights into diet, lice and combat.
