The epic tale of wrongful imprisonment, adventure and revenge, in its definitive translation
Thrown in prison for a crime he has not committed, Edmond Dantès is confined to the grim fortress of If. There he learns of a great hoard of treasure hidden on the Isle of Monte Cristo and he becomes determined not only to escape, but also to use the treasure to plot the destruction of the three men responsible for his incarceration. Dumas' epic tale of suffering and retribution, inspired by a real-life case of wrongful imprisonment, was a huge popular success when it was first serialized in the 1840s.

“It is no exaggeration to say “Monte Cristo” still ranks as one of the most exciting stories imaginable, one every bit as good as anything Steven Spielberg or J.K. Rowling could ever conjure up. Edmond Dantes, a young sailor on the cusp of being named captain of a cargo ship and preparing to marry his sweetheart, becomes the victim of a plot by envious rivals” CS Monitor
“Page-turners like this one never age . . . you always want to find out what happens next.” Neil Smith
“But honestly, this is the rare classic that’s hard to put down. If it’s on your “someday” list, I would definitely give it a try.” The Book Stop
THE COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO is one of the most exciting adventures of all time. Presented in a beautiful edition specially designed for kindle, this is Dumas’s swashbuckling epic masterpiece which will stay with you forever.
The final installment of the D’Artagnan Romances chronicles heroic adventures in seventeenth-century France, including the tale of “The Man in the Iron Mask.”
With 1844’s The Three Musketeers, Alexandre Dumas introduced the world to the immortal hero D’Artagnan and the inseparable trio of king’s Musketeers: Athos, Aramis, and Porthos. Their many escapades—full of swordfights, derring-do, and chivalry—came to define the swashbuckler genre of adventure fiction.Following the second D’Artagnan novel, Twenty Years After, this third and final volume is itself separated into three parts: “The Vicomte of Bragelonne,” “Louise de la Vallière,” and “The Man in the Iron Mask.” Together they form an epic saga of risking all in the name of justice, loyalty, and friendship.
The story takes place in France, Italy, islands in the Mediterranean and the Levant during the historical events of 1815–1838 (from just before the Hundred Days through the reign of Louis-Philippe of France). The historical setting is a fundamental element of the book. It is primarily concerned with themes of hope, justice, vengeance, mercy, forgiveness and death, and is told in the style of an adventure story.

The d'Artagnan Romances recount the many adventures of d'Artagnan who aspires to be one of the Musketeers of the Guard. Although d'Artagnan is not able to join this elite corps at first, he is befriended by three of the most formidable musketeers of the age—Athos, Porthos and Aramis, "the three musketeers" or “the three inseparables”—and becomes involved in affairs of state and at court.
The musketeers fight against the injustices, abuses, and absurdities of the Ancien Régime in France. Their adventures had additional political significance at the time of publication when the debate in France between republicans and monarchists was still fierce.Included in this lavishly illustrated edition are:
The Three Musketeers,
Twenty Years After,
The Vicomte de Bragelonne,
Ten Years Later,
Louise de la Valliere, and
The Man in the Iron Mask
True literary classics first published by Alexandre Dumas in 1844, these French historical adventure novels are pillars of the swashbuckling genre and have gone on to influence the wider world ever since.
An interactive table of contents along with many illustrations will help you navigate through the musketeers' many daring exploits.
La historia tiene lugar en Francia, Italia y varias islas del Mediterráneo durante los hechos históricos de 1814-1838 - Los Cien Días del gobierno de Napoleón I, el reinado de Luis XVIII de Francia, de Carlos X de Francia y el reinado de Luis Felipe I de Francia. Trata sobre todo los temas de la justicia, la venganza, la piedad y el perdón y está contada en el estilo de una historia de aventuras.
Dumas obtuvo la idea principal de una historia real que encontró en las memorias de un hombre llamado Jacques Peuchet. Peuchet contaba la historia de un zapatero llamado François Picaud que vivía en París en 1807. Picaud se comprometió con una mujer rica, pero cuatro amigos celosos le acusaron falsamente de ser un espía de Inglaterra. Fue encarcelado durante siete años. Durante su encarcelamiento, un compañero de prisión moribundo le legó un tesoro escondido en Milán. Cuando Picaud fue liberado en 1814, tomó posesión del tesoro, volvió bajo otro nombre a París y dedicó diez años a trazar su exitosa venganza contra sus antiguos amigos.
When Aramis, one of the three musketeers, discovers that the king of France has a twin brother, he plans a coup d’état in an attempt to secretly replace King Louis with his brother Philippe. Entrusting his secret plan to Porthos, Raoul, and D’Artagnan, the friends pit themselves against the power of the French monarchy.
The Man in the Iron Mask is the last volume of the D’Artagnan Romances, and has been published on its own and also as the final volume in the The Vicomte de Bragelonne: Ten Years Later, a large novel that encompasses the four final D’Artagnan volumes. The story detailed in this volume inspired the 1998 film The Man in the Iron Mask starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Jeremy Irons.
