Publisher's Summary

A Musketeers feature-length special! The sequel to The Man in the Iron Mask...

Seventeenth-century France, two years after D'Artagnan's death: Deep beneath the Palais de Versailles, Aramis is shocked and astonished by the directives of D'Artagnan's Legacy. To follow, he must betray his honour, his King and, perhaps most damning of all, his fellow Musketeers. The Sun King will be eclipsed by darkness once more...or can the ageing Musketeers really reunite, for one last time - for the glory of France?

All over the place

I was very excited to see some additional story, even if not written by Dumas. Unfortunately this goes completely off the rails. Not worth the money or the read. Would like my $5 back. Good voice from the narrator but that couldn’t save this.

Enjoyable enough

I want to first mention that I got this book for free in order for me to write a review.

I enjoy a good Musketeer story, that being said I am not knowledgeable on the original story. Due to this I am not sure if this is a rework or an original story. My issue though it that, to my knowledge of the limited Musketeer stories I had rear and watched, they have been grounded in reality. This one did as well... until it did not.

Also, the narrator has a phenomenal voice but I sometimes had issues telling the character voices apart (which was one good reason it is read as a script).

I CAME, I LISTENED, I CONQUERED

Dulcet, Never Dull.

Story shimmies well.

Puts the Art in D'Artagnan.

All in all a good listen to pretend to swordfight to.

I confess I did not get to the end of this story but from what I did hear it was shaping up to be an interesting piece. The reason for stopping is that I found the way it was narrated frustrating, I feel sure that it wouldn't affect some people at all. However, my problem is I am usually listening while doing something else and to have someone saying the name of the speaker at every turn was yet another thing to divert my attention.

I have not listened to an audible book where this has happened, usually the narrator's voice changes a little to signify the character change, here the narrator actually says the person's name. This distracted my attention and took my interest away from the story. I feel really bad about this as it is not the author or the narrator's fault, I feel sure they were told how this was going to be recorded.

My stars indicate that the story was shaping up to be good. It is difficult to assess the narrator as he was saying the characters' names and so it is difficult to score. I can say, his voice is pleasant and I am sure he could have changed the tone to prevent this labelling, if given the chance.
