Dumas, Alexandre: D'Artagnan Romances, Vol 2. v2. 23rd Aug 2009
Volume 2 of the "D'Artagnan Romances" contains the book Twenty Years After which, as its title suggests, is set 20 years after the events of The Three Musketeers.
The year is now 1648. Louis XIII has died, as has Cardinal Richelieu, and while the crown of France may sit upon the head of Anne of Austria as Regent for the young Louis XIV, the real power resides with Cardinal Mazarin, her secret husband. D'Artagnan is now a lieutenant of musketeers, and his three friends have retired to private life. Athos turned out to be a nobleman, the Comte de la Fère, and has retired to his home with his son, Raoul de Bragelonne. Aramis, whose real name is D'Herblay, has followed his intention of shedding the musketeer's cassock for the priest's robes, and Porthos has married a wealthy woman, who left him her fortune upon her death. But trouble is stirring in both France and England. Cromwell menaces the institution of royalty itself while marching against Charles I, and at home the Fronde is threatening to tear France apart. D'Artagnan brings his friends out of retirement to try to save the threatened English monarch...
Please see the description of Vol 1 for more information about this series.
Enjoy! More to come...
