Milady is finally behind bars. During the day, she patiently plots her escape. And at night, she dreams of reaping revenge on D'Artagnan.
In this final part of "The Three Musketeers", our heroes’ story looks to be drawing to a close. But the Cardinal and Milady have other ideas. Athos, Aramis, Porthos and D’Artagnan will have to use all their wits in this final struggle.
It’s a fitting end to Dumas’ epic, which takes his famous blend of action and romance into some unexpected directions. And if you’re left wanting more Musketeers, don’t despair! Their adventures continue in the sequel "Twenty Years After".
Alexandre Dumas (1802 - 1870) was a hugely popular 19th century French writer. Born of mixed French and Haitian heritage, Dumas first rose to prominence in Paris as a playwright, but later gained international fame with his historical fiction.
Often co-authored with other writers, these stories wove together swashbuckling adventure, romance, and real events from France’s past. Among the best known are "The Three Musketeers", and its sequels "Twenty Years After", and "Le Vicomte de Bragelonne: Ten Years Later". Set across four decades, this trilogy follows the rise of the dashing D’Artagnan—from hot-headed soldier to trusted captain under Louis XIV.
Dumas’ other novels include "The Count of Monte Cristo" and "The Black Tulip". His works have been adapted into more than 200 movies, including The Man in the Iron Mask starring Leonardo DiCaprio.
