Publisher's Summary

At last, after 165 years, the sequel to The Man in the Iron Mask... 17th 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?

Lacks the Joy of the Musketeers

I received this book for free. I am voluntarily posting this review and any opinions expressed herein are my own.

To start, I loved The Three Musketeers by Alexander Dumas. This, not so much. It was a bit of a disjointed plot and had none of the spirit, humor, or joy upon which it is based.

The narrator, Alan Ceppos, has a strong French accent - which I found accentuated the material. However, the audio levels were poorly recorded - resulting in several occasions where the audio level dropped and the volume had to be turned up. Then, after a few moments it returned to normal - so the volume had to be turned down.
