A thrilling new series that reimagines the Three Musketeers of classic literature! Complete with time travel, sword fighting, intrigue, and more sword fighting, The Last Musketeer is a swashbuckling adventure that tells the real story of how four unlikely young friends united to become legends.
On the first day of a family trip to France, fourteen-year-old Greg Rich’s parents disappear. They’re not just missing from the neighborhood—they’re missing from this century. They’ve been kidnapped, taken back to seventeenth-century Paris, and imprisoned by an evil man with supernatural powers named Dinicoeur. It’s up to Greg to travel through time and rescue them.
Once in 1615 Paris, Greg learns that his family history is tied to the Three Musketeers of legend—only they're real. In order to save his parents, Greg must assume the identity of a young d’Artagnan and unite the musketeers before their time. But how will he find Athos, Porthos, and Aramis? And what exactly is Dinicoeur plotting?
For fans of Pendragon, the 39 Clues, and the Ranger’s Apprentice, The Last Musketeer is the first book in an exciting series that both stands on its own as a rollicking adventure and acts as a prequel to Alexandre Dumas’s classic The Three Musketeers. Featuring a contemporary hero set against a seventeenth-century Parisian backdrop, The Last Musketeer delivers rip-roaring action and nonstop thrills.
A new film adaptation of Alexandre Dumas’s original The Three Musketeers will release in theaters on October 14, 2011, starring Orlando Bloom, Logan Lerman (Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief), and Milla Jovovich.
