Ten Years Later by Alexandre Dumas

This book contains Alexandre Dumas’s historical novel “Ten Years Later”.

Serialised between 1847 and 1850, this is the second instalment of the final episode in the d’Artagnan Romances. Set between 1660 and 1667, it chronicles the legendary french ruler, Louis XIV, and his metamorphosis – from juvenile monarch to ‘Sun King’. A thrilling romantic romp in seventeenth-century France, “Ten Years Later” constitutes a must-read for fans of Dumas’s seminal work, and would make for a worthy addition to any collection.

Alexandre Dumas (1802–1870) was a famous French writer. He is best remembered for his exciting romantic sagas, including “The Three Musketeers” and “The Count of Monte Cristo”. Despite making a great deal of money from his writing, Dumas was almost perpetually penniless thanks to his extravagant lifestyle. The works of Alexandre Dumas have since been translated into nearly a hundred different languages, and have inspired over two hundred motion pictures.
