Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for THE LAST MUSKETEER:“From the gripping first sentence...the excitement never flags in this newly imagined Musketeer adventure. Using Alexandre Dumas’ stories as a jumping-off point, Gibbs mixes fact, fantasy and thrills to create a galloping swashbuckler.” (Kirkus Reviews)

Praise for THE LAST MUSKETEER:“Gibbs deftly packs an abundance of historical detail into a lively narrative that captures the swashbuckling spirit of Dumas’s original. Full of jovial humor, narrow escapes, sorcery, and intrigue.” (School Library Journal)

Praise for THE LAST MUSKETEER:“[An] action-packed tale.” (Publishers Weekly)

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.” (ALA Booklist)

This is a perfect swashbuckling book for boys. I buy books for my grandchildren and I generally read them also.

This was a good ending to a good series. I can't quite put my finger on why, but this one was a smidge not as good as the other two for me, though. It may have been that by the third book, I was tiring of the sword fights and narrow escapes. Although, the young boys at which this story is aimed would probably find those a positive rather than a negative :).

A good ending to a fun series. Even though I give this book three stars, I recommend the series as a whole!

This is the third book in the Last Musketeer trilogy. While background is given, I don't recommend you start here. You'll be lost. And you'll enjoy the first two books anyway, so why spoil them? The essentials? Greg Rich, a young teenager from our time, has been trapped back in 1615 France where he has joined up with the Musketeers, also his age. All the while, he is trying to stop a villain and figure out a way to return to our time.

This book opens pretty much where the last book left off. Greg and his friends have been captured and are facing execution in the morning. Even if they do find some way to escape, they would then have to race back to Paris in hopes of beating an army bent on overthrowing King Louis. Can they do that? Will Greg find the second half of the Devil's Stone so he can return to his our time?

The book starts off with a bang and never really lets up. There was one section that wasn't high intensity action, but even then a musketeer's life was in danger. I had no idea how the characters would save the day, and I was often cheering along the way to the climax. Meantime, the characters were as fun to be around as ever.

Fans of the series will be sorry to see the story end, but they'll enjoy the final ride as we get there.
