Sarah Hoyt has done a few other runs at the Musketeers as mysteries, but Sword and Blood goes the whole alt-reality route, in which vampires are real and becoming ascendant. Beginning with the turning of Athos, whose tragic stature holds true, she tracks the early bits of the original novel with changes that are Right, not annoying. Indeed as each new scene appears, almost but not quite like the original, I find my self grinning at the memories and rushing through to see what happens next.
She's got this thing down.
I recommend that you download the free sample that Amazon can put on your Kindle, and read it. For $3.99 this is a no brainer purchase, you will be amazed at the quality. I have read books I paid a lot more, that were not half as good. I enjoyed recognizing parts that were borrowed from the original book (at least they were in the movie). There is also a free short story about the origins of one of the musketeers on her blog.
The book was an A+ read that I could not put down. It wrecked my plans for the day, but the setting was beautifully done with a huge amount of historical detail that did not feel like an info dump, but was actually part of the story. I wish more authors did this, instead of getting into unnecessary details. The story moved and was a great read, with a lot of surprises. A real page turner.The nicest part were the Vampires were Vampires and were evil, and did not sparkle. I look forward to the next two books in the series.
I wish she would releases them on a Friday night, so I had the weekend to read them, instead of a weekday...
I hope the rest of the series will be put out in e-book format, Including The Pre-quell. YES, there is a prequel!
