17th century France: Young D'Artagnan leaves his home and travels to Paris with dreams of joining The Musketeers of Guard—the glamourous and gallant group of men who guard Louis XIII, the King of France. There he meets Athos, Porthos and Aramis, the three best musketeers and inseparable friends who believe with all their heart in the words 'all for one, one for all.' D'Artagnan rents an apartment above the shop of one Monsieur Bonacieux, hoping to settle into Parisian life and become a proper musketeer quickly. What the young and gallant D'Artagnan does not realise is that he has, inadvertently, landed himself in the very centre of one of the foulest conspiracies in monarchist France. There are love affairs and intrigues, ambushes and wild rides, duels and murders. And as the famous American author and editor Clifton Fadiman says, 'it is all impossible and it is all magnificient.'

  • About Lawrence Ellsworth

    Lawrence Ellsworth is the pen name of Lawrence Schick, who began his career as a writer at TSR Hobbies in the late 1970s, where he wrote, developed, and edited a number of titles for the role-playing game Dungeons & Dragons. When Ellsworth was a boy in the 1960s, publishers were reprinting many of the best pulp tales in inexpensive paperbacks, so Harold Lamb, Edgar Rice Burroughs, and Robert E. Howard enthralled Ellsworth at an early age. Poring through the libraries for any book in which the hero wore a sword soon led him to Dumas, Sabatini, Orczy, Tolkien, H. Rider Haggard, and Arthur Conan Doyle’s historicals.

    About Alexandre Dumas

    Alexandre Dumas (English /duːmˈɑː, djuː-/, French: [alɛksɑ̃dʁ dyma], born Dumas Davy de la Pailleterie [dyma davi də la pajətʁi]; 24 July 1802 - 5 December 1870), also known as Alexandre Dumas, père, was a French writer. His works have been translated into nearly 100 languages, and he is one of the most widely read French authors. Many of his historical novels of high adventure were originally published as serials, including The Count of Monte Cristo, The Three Musketeers, Twenty Years After, and The Vicomte de Bragelonne: Ten Years Later. His novels have been adapted since the early twentieth century for nearly 200 films. Dumas' last novel, The Knight of Sainte-Hermine, unfinished at his death, was completed by a scholar and published in 2005, becoming a bestseller. It was published in English in 2008 as The Last Cavalier.
