In searching for a blog topic today, Word Nerd pulled up the NYT book review website.
And there found glorious news.
Former Spanish war correspondent turned novelist Arturo Perez-Reverte's latest Captain Alatriste book, "The Sun over Breda" will be out in April. Click here for the NYT story.
This is the third book in Perez-Reverte's series about swashbuckler/mercenary Captain Deigo Alatriste. The first two books in the series, "Captain Alatriste" and "Purity of Blood" have ranked highly in some of Word Nerd's past award lists for books in a series or best books of the year.
Now, it's just time for the wait for Word Nerd's hold on the book at the library to get filled.
