It's been a couple of months since Greg Rich and his parents get trapped in 1615 France. While a member of the fledgling Musketeers, he is still hunting for a way to return to the modern era.
But then Spanish assassins try to take out the Musketeers, and they quickly learn that it was the work of their old enemy Dinicoeur. The foursome set out to find out what he is trying to do now and stop him. But the road trip becomes contentious, and Greg begins to think there is a traitor in their midst. Is he right? If so, can they stop Dinicoeur from changing history?
If you haven't read the first in the series, I suggest you start there. There's so much set up in that book. This one certainly explains things well (which served as a good reminder for me), but it also spoils much of what happened in the earlier book.
Often with middles of trilogies, I feel like the story is just marking time. I didn't feel this way with this book. The story moves forward well, and what happens here reaches a great climax. The character are still entertaining as well.
So if you are looking for a fun adventure story for yours kids (or you), definitely consider this book.
