The 3 Musketeers
by Alexandre Dumas Year Published:
IMO, one of the greatest stories ever told.
A young Gascon gentleman, D'Artagnan, arrives in Paris determined to join the infamous King's guards and is soon befriended by the band of musketeers, Athos, Porthos, and Aramis, famed for their impressive swordplay and fearless spirit. With the treacherous Cardinal Richelieu and his seductive spy, Milady, weaving a web of deceit and royal intrigue, the friends are soon drawn into an evil plot. To defend the Queen's honor and protect the King they must discover the truth, encountering stolen diamonds, Louis XIII, love, murder, and vengeance along the way. A swashbuckling tale of chivalry, romance, daring rooftop duels, and most of all, adventure.
