Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this classic swashbuckling tale — one of the great adventures of all time — Alexandre Dumas's Three Musketeers are pitted against one another in a terrifying fight for the throne of France. The adventure begins deep inside the Bastille, where a twenty-three-year-old prisoner named "Philippe" has languished for eight long years, unaware of his true identity or what crime he has committed. When Aramis, one of the original Three Musketeers, bribes his way into his cell, the shocking secret that has kept Philippe locked away from the world is revealed — a secret that could destroy King Louis XIV. What follows may divide Athos, Porthos, and D'Artagnan forever and cause Aramis to betray his sacred vow of "All for one, and one for all!"

With its daring jailbreak, brilliant masquerade, and heart-stopping sword play, The Man in the Iron Mask contains all the pomp, pageantry, and colorful history that make the novels of Alexandre Dumas so wonderful to read. It is an incomparable tale of honor and loyalty, adventure and derring-do.

About the Author

Alexandre Dumas was born July 24, 1802, at Villiers-Cotterets, France, the son of Napoleon's famous mulatto general, Dumas. Alexandre Dumas began writing at an early age and saw his first success in a play he wrote entitled Henri III et sa Cour (1829). A prolific author, Dumas was also an adventurer and took part in the Revolution of 1830. Dumas is most famous for his brilliant historical novels, which he wrote with collaborators, mainly Auguste Maquet, and which were serialized in the popular press of the day. His most popular works are The Three Musketeers (1844), The Count of Monte Cristo (1844-45), and The Man in Iron Mask (1848-50). Dumas made and lost several fortunes, and died penniless on on December 5, 1870.
