Widely acclaimed as the greatest "cloak and sword" adventure story ever written, The Three Musketeers by the world-famous novelist Alexandre Dumas is a tale for all time. "One for all and all for one!", this pledge of the musketeers became a symbol of camaraderie, loyalty and bravery. Armed only with quick wits and lightning-fast swords, noble and haunted Athos, gigantic and open-hearted Porthos, elegant and mysterious Aramis, and their incomparable companion, D'Artagnan, defend their queen against the intrigues of Cardinal Richelieu and defeat their numerous cunning enemies. They became legend. The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas has two sequels, Twenty Years After and Ten Years After, also known as The Man in the Iron Mask. However, nobody knows what happened during the time gaps between these narratives. Could the four glorious "inseparables" stay away from swordplay, wars, political intrigues, and love affairs in the turbulent France of the 17th century? The Unknown Adventures of Athos, Porthos, Aramis and D'Artagnan, Three Musketeers Again for short, begins to answer these questions, masterfully enveloping the reader by the charming, dangerous and vibrant atmosphere of heroic suspense.
