What the Critics Say

"One of the very best of the series, mixing amorous and political intrigue with an élan peculiar to Dumas...this quasi-historical series remains remarkably readable" (The Irish Times, Dublin)

Only the Best

I have read all that books in the series and now go on to The Man in the Iron Mask to complete the story. I have enjoyed every minute of all . Simon Vance tells the story really well and have marked his performance higher than story and overall to stress my point. Again I have had a really good read/listen, just plain the Best of Entertainment.

The weakest of the series

A bit too much 'woe is me I'm in love' and not enough swashbuckling in this one!
