Book Six of the Musketeers Cycle

By Alexandre Dumas, Edited and Translated by Lawrence Ellsworth

Court of Daggers: Conspiracy swirls around the young King Louis XIV at his palace of Fontainebleau: Aramis plots for power, the Duke of Buckingham schemes for love, Athos ponders glory, Porthos revels in his new nobility, while d’Artagnan bravely defends the throne against all comers. At the center of this hotbed of intrigue stands one young man: Raoul, the Vicomte de Bragelonne. The son of Athos and the protégé of d’Artagnan, there’s only one force Raoul cannot master—his own heart. And when the eyes of his beloved Louise de La Vallière turn toward another’s gaze, Raoul will gamble his position, his honor, and even his life to win her back.
