Product description


‘Dumas is a master of ripping yarns full of fearless heroes, poisonous ladies and swashbuckling adventurers.’
The Guardian

‘Absolutely wonderful…Alexandre Dumas remains, now as ever, the Napoleon of storytellers.' Washington Post, Top Ten Book for 2007

'This first English translation of the last, previously unknown novel by Dumas offers a stunning completion to his fictional mapping of French history…This capacious account of the Napoleonic era represents vintage Dumas and an intensely personal vision of the time.' Publishers Weekly

‘A gallant romp through post-revolutionary French history.' New York Times Book Review

'A hit from the vaults: Dumas père's final work…a grand tale of adventure. A big book, and a pleasure for anyone who thrills at the likes of D'Artagnan and company.’ Kirkus Review

'Reviews have been unanimous in praising “The Last Cavalier”: The novel is a reminder that readers are always willing to make time for epic storytelling when the narrative is in the hands of a master.' Los Angeles Times

‘It isn't every publishing season that one gets to welcome a new book by the author of “The Three Musketeers”, “The Count of Monte Cristo”, and “The Man in the Iron Mask”. Or, consequently, to lose oneself afresh – for hundreds of headlong pages – in a state that one can only characterise as narrative bliss, borne along on a stream of daring adventures that courses from dishonour to glory, with all sorts of diverting hurdles and obstacles along the way…with enough plot and passion for a dozen novels, “The Last Cavalier” is sheer delight.’ Barnes and Noble Review

‘“The Last Cavalier” reads like a Dumas classic. James Bond, Indiana Jones, and many others owe a deep debt to Dumas, who stuffs his tales with thrilling exploits and exotic locales. No one with a pulse will be able to resist Dumas' lost classic.’ Christian Science Monitor

About the Author

Frequently imitated but rarely surpassed, Dumas is one of the best known French writers and a master of ripping yarns full of fearless heroes, poisonous ladies and swashbuckling adventurers. His other novels include The Count of Monte Cristo, The Three Musketeers and The Man in the Iron Mask, which have sold millions of copies and been made into countless TV and film adaptation.
