Part of a duology about the life of King Louis XV, "The Conspirators; or the Chevalier d’Harmental" follows the conspiracy against Phillip II, Duke of Orleans, regent of the infant King. Of his work on the period, it is considered among Dumas’ best by critics and fans alike.
It is a thrilling novel, threaded through with romance, political conspiracy, and the epic clash between the Church and the Crown, for the support of the people. From the brilliant mind behind ‘The Three Musketeers’, it is another brilliant gem in his already epic body of work, perfect for anyone who loves historical fiction or the intrigue of Netflix's ‘The King’.
