Alexandre Dumas was already a best-selling novelist when he wrote this historical romance, combining (as he claimed) the two essentials of life--"l'action et l'amour." The Man in the Iron Mask climactically concludes the epic adventures of the three Musk3ateers: here, Athos, Porthos, Aramis, and their friend D'Artagnan, once invincible, meet their destinies.

If you have read the Three Musketeers books leading up to this one, you will not want to read this. It is missing twenty eight chapters that tie in with Louise de la Valliere. Find the Oxford World Classics edition of the title. It is the only one that I have found in print that contains these 28 chapters.

The continuation of the 3 musketeers legend. Dumas continues beyond the 3 Musketeers and 20 years after. More swords and intrigue and better than the movie!

Sequel to The Three Musketeers...a good ride, but The Count of Monte Cristo was better!

Deception and revenge are the themes of this historical tale of the Three Musketeers and their derring-do. This is not the movie version, but a more complex and astonishing fiction. Recent investigations into the truth of this story have remarkable theories on the real identity of the man in the mask. The charming prose of this very good translation suits an age where values are very different from our own. Dumas was hailed as a great and prolific writer in the 19th century.
