Overview

Greg Rich has traveled through time, become one of the legendary Musketeers, and—most recently— prevented the Spanish army from attacking Paris. He should feel invincible. Instead, he and his friends languish in prison, having stumbled into a trap set by Milady and the Prince of Condé.

But Greg didn't come to the seventeenth century to sit in a jail cell and await execution. He, Aramis, Athos, and Porthos are Musketeers, and King Louis is in immediate danger of being overthrown by the scheming prince. Faster than they can say "All for one, and one for all," the boys plot to break out of prison, defend Louis, and return Greg and his parents to the twenty-first century.

Amid narrow escapes, flying arrows, and fiery explosions, the Musketeers battle to save the king— and history itself. Because if the past changes, what happens to Greg's future?

Editorial Reviews

ALA Booklist
Praise for THE LAST MUSKETEER:“Gibbs’ playful, action-packed twist on the classic novel includes plenty of humor as Greg attempts to fit into medieval life. An entertaining premise and high adventure.”
Children's Literature - Beverley Fahey
Greg Rich who has time-travelled to the 17th century and befriended Aramis, Athos, and Porthos is languishing with them in a prison after being successful in preventing the Spanish from attacking Paris. Along with young Catherine they make their escape and must hurry to Paris to prevent the evil prince Conde? from forcing King Louis from his throne. The road to Paris is not without conflict as they are thwarted every step of the way by the immortal Michel Dinicoeur who is seeking revenge for the pain inflicted on him by Gregory and the Musketeers. Dinicoeur is aided in his plot by his younger self Dominic Richelieu. Theirs is a love/hate relationship and while Gregory must protect the king he must also keep Richelieu alive for is from this man that his lineage descends. Court intrigue, harrowing escapes, fiery explosions, and exciting sword fights fill the pages of this action-packed adventure. There is even hint of romance as Catherine reveals that she would not be unhappy if Gregory was not able to return to his own time. The complexity of the time travel is confusing but for those following the series from the beginning this may not be an issue. There is never a dull moment in this lively, swashbuckling adventure that captures the humor and the spirit of Dumas' Musketeers. Reviewer: Beverley Fahey
