An Oprah Pick of Best Action & Adventures Novels

A Tor.com Reviewers' Choice of Best Escapist Adventures

A young Gascon nobleman, d’Artagnan, makes his way to Paris hoping to join the Musketeers, that legion of heroes held in high esteem by the king and feared by the wicked Cardinal Richelieu. D’Artagnan quickly proves he has the heart of a Musketeer and earns himself a place in their ranks. Relying on their wits and skills with the sword, the gallant trio sets out to preserve the honor of the king and foil the nefarious schemes of Cardinal Richelieu.

Alexandre Dumas’s swashbuckling epic has embroidered upon history a colorful world of swordplay, intrigue, and romance, which earned this classic its reputation as the most thrilling adventure novel ever written.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“One of the finest adventure novels of all time. It has sword fights, espionage, significant jewelry, wonderfully devious villains, and all manner of high jinks. If you’ve been put off by one of the (many) lackluster film adaptations, do give the book a try—it’s wittier, livelier, cleverer, and more charming than any of its imitators.” Tor.com
“Remains compelling and timeless.” Library Journal
“I do not say there is no character as well drawn in Shakespeare [as D’Artagnan]. I do say there is none that I love so wholly.” Robert Louis Stevenson, author of Kim
