D’Artagnan and his swashbuckling friends reunite to vanquish forces of evil and injustice in the sequel to The Three Musketeers
Two decades after a brash young adventurer teamed with master swordsmen Athos, Porthos, and Aramis to defeat Cardinal Richelieu and his seductive spy, Milady de Winter, France stands on the brink of civil war. Inspired by Oliver Cromwell’s persecution of King Charles I in England, bloodthirsty crowds threaten the youthful monarch, Louis XIV; his regent mother, Queen Anne; and their devious chief minister, Cardinal Mazarin.
To protect the sovereignty of the crown, Mazarin commissions d’Artagnan to find the three Musketeers and return them to the queen’s service. The mission takes on an even greater urgency when the vengeful Mordaunt, son of Milady, picks up the quartet’s trail. From a dramatic duel in London to an explosive showdown on the English Channel to a climactic confrontation in the streets of Paris, d’Artagnan and his friends wage an epic battle on behalf of truth, honor, and justice.
