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?

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).

Interesting premise

This book has an interesting premise, but the format (a script) is a bit short to really expand on it. I love the idea of old musketeers though. If this had been a full length book and better developed characters (especially Queen Anne) I would have given it more stars. Now it really depends on your knowledge of the original source material if you understand it or not. Also, really be aware that this is a script, complete with scene-setting and names in front of sentences when someone speaks. If you have trouble with visualizing that or if you find it jarring/it takes you out of the experience, then this may not be the book for you.

The narrator is professional and has a good variation between characters. He also has a pleasant speaking voice that suits the material. Sometimes it was a little bit too slow for my taste, but at 1.1 or 1.2 it's fine. I would listen to a full length book narrated by him.

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.
