Summary

Summary

Dumas continues his Musketeer Romances with a final trilogy. The Vicomte de Bragelonne opens an epic adventure which continues with Louise de la Vallière and reaches its climax in The Man in the Iron Mask.

It is May 1660, and the fate of nations is at stake. Mazarin plots, Louis XIV is in love, and Raoul de Bragelonne, son of Athos, is intent on serving France and winning the heart of Louise de la Vallière. Meanwhile, d’Artagnan learns that his old comrades have great projects in hand. Athos seeks the restoration of Charles II, while Aramis, with Porthos in tow, has a secret plan involving a masked prisoner and the fortification of the island of Belle-Ile. D’Artagnan finds a thread leading him to the French court, the banks of the Tyne, the beaches of Holland, and the dunes of Brittany.

Never short on swashbuckling action, breathtaking suspense, and romantic intrigue, Dumas’s classic works are must-haves for any collection.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Alternately melodramatic, sentimental, humorous, worldly, and almost always absorbing.” Irish Times
“I would sit down with The Vicomte de Bragelonne for a long, silent, solitary, lamplit evening by the fire.” Robert Louis Stevenson
