The Last Musketeer
The Last Musketeer by Stuart Gibbs is another one of Mr. Gibbs fun MG stories. It’s full of adventure and daring, difficult situations that the protagonist, Greg Rich, manages to get through. Greg is transported back to Paris, France in the year 1615. Battling Richelieu to save his parents from death, Greg comes across The Three Musketeers, but these young boys don’t even know each other at this stage in their lives. They had yet to become those legendary swordsmen from Alexander Dumas’ stories.
This story offers an interesting look at what Paris looked like 400 years ago, the people, the sights, and the smells.
I’d easily recommend this book to any young library patron, and even as a quick, entertaining read for anyone not so young. And, it’s the first of a 3 book series, so there’s more adventure to come.
