Publisher's Summary

Thirty-five years after the events of The Three Musketeers, d'Artagnan, Athos, Porthos, and Aramis find themselves caught between conflicting loyalties in a power struggle that could change the face of the French monarchy.
For eight long years, a young prisoner has languished within the dreaded Bastille, his face hidden in an iron mask. He knows neither his true identity nor the crime for which he has been imprisoned. But Aramis knows this secret-a secret so dangerous, it could topple the King from his throne! Will his cause divide the once indivisible band of musketeers?
A tale of mystery, adventure, and political intrigue, this conclusion to Dumas' swashbuckling musketeer saga is based on the true story of a masked prisoner who dwelled in the Bastille during the Louis XIV's reign and whose identity remains in question to this day.

What the Critics Say

This swashbuckling conclusion to Dumas's musketeer saga pits the brave band of heroes against each other in a power struggle that could change the face of the French monarchy.

"The name Alexandre Dumas is more than French-it is universal." (Victor Hugo)

I have thoroughly enjoyed the books on an individual basis and as a much longer story. The performances of all the readers has been consistently very good all of them bringing something special, I have especially enjoyed the accents, how they are maintained as the same over long books like these is a wonder, I suppose its the way you do it.
As for the stories they are all very very good, my adjective's would fail to give the stories a description they deserve. I have enjoy reading the written histories of the times the fictional books cover. Whichever is preferred, if one is willing to undergo such a task, excitement pervades. Personally I liked the scenario's of the novels more. The books definitely killed off the idea that musketeers are ,Robin Hood type, heroes as depicted on film. I Loved Them All. Thanks for the best read of my life. Colin XXX.
