Giant Porthos; elegant Aramis; mysterious, haunted Athos: they are fearless, loyal and unstoppable. They're also rogues, seducers and swindlers. But when thousands will die in a war fought over lost love, and lethal royal intrigues are daily events, people don't just need heroes-They need legends.
Armed only with quick wits and a lightning sword, young D'Artagnan just wants to serve with the King's Musketeers. He soon finds himself saving his queen from the subtle, deadly traps of her enemy, Cardinal Richelieu, and Richelieu's agent, the sadistic, beautiful monster Milady. Now Porthos, Aramis and Athos must keep the boy and his lover from being crushed in an international clash of political titans....
But can even the Three Musketeers help D'Artagnan save himself from the insane hatred of Milady's revenge?
