Summary

Summary


Originally published in 1845 as a sequel to The Three MusketeersTwenty Years After is a supreme creation of suspense and heroic adventure.

Two decades have passed since the three musketeers triumphed over Cardinal Richelieu and Milady. Time has weakened their resolve and dispersed their loyalties. But treasons and stratagems still cry out for justice: civil war endangers the throne of France, while in England, Cromwell threatens to send Charles I to the scaffold. Dumas brings his immortal quartet out of retirement to cross swords with time, the malevolence of men, and the forces of history. But their greatest test is a titanic struggle with the son of Milady, who wears the face of Evil.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Dumas never stints the action, witty dialogue, and surprising plot developments. As gradually grows clear, his overriding theme is loyalty—to friends, family and party but, above all, to living by a principled code of honor in a debased and chaotic world. If you only know The Three Musketeers, you owe yourself the pleasure of spending some happy evenings with Twenty Years After. Athos, Porthos, Aramis, and D’Artagnan may be older and their hair starting to gray, but they’ve lost none of their romance and grandeur.” Washington Post
“Good fun!” Sunday Telegraph (London)
