A 17th century Spanish soldier fights for his country during the Dutch Revolt, where he loses a good friend during the war. He returns to Spain to take his fallen comrade's son under his wing. He soon returns to fighting, since it is what he is best at and is hired to kill the Prince of Wales, but this mission is not as straight forward as it seems. Alatriste gets himself in a more complicated situation when it turns out his lover is also the mistress of the Spanish King. All the while, war with France looms imminently.
