In The Last Musketeer series of chapter books for kids grade 3 and up, teenager Greg Rich finds himself thrown back in time to team up with the also teenaged Three Musketeers, long before they grew up and into legend.
On the first day of a family trip to Paris, Greg Rich’s parents disappear. They’re not just missing from the city—they’re missing from the century. So Greg does what any other fourteen-year-old would do: He travels through time to rescue them.
Greg soon finds out that his family history is tied to the legendary Three Musketeers. But when he meets them, they’re kids his age, and they’ll only live long enough to become true heroes if he can save them.
To rescue his parents, Greg must assume the identity of a young Musketeer in training and unite Athos, Porthos, Aramis, and D’Artagnan—but a powerful enemy is doing everything possible to stop him from succeeding.
Greg Rich is beginning to get the hang of things in 1615 Paris. Having assumed the identity of a young D’Artagnan, Greg united the legendary three Musketeers and succeeded in freeing his parents from a dank prison cell. But he hasn’t figured out how to get home. Or how to defeat the dangerous Michel Dinicoeur.
When Dinicoeur escapes from the Bastille and flees to Spain, the Musketeers charge through the French countryside in hot pursuit. The boys are unexpectedly joined by Milady de Winter and her friend Catherine. Along the way, the group is ambushed by knife-wielding thieves and assassins. Someone is anticipating their every move. But who? And how?
There appears to be a traitor in their ranks, and if the Musketeers can’t trust each other, who can they trust? It’s “All for one, and one for all!” . . . Isn’t it?
Greg Rich has traveled through time, become one of the legendary Musketeers, and—most recently— prevented the Spanish army from attacking Paris. He should feel invincible. Instead, he and his friends languish in prison, having stumbled into a trap set by Milady and the Prince of Condé.
But Greg didn’t come to the seventeenth century to sit in a jail cell and await execution. He, Aramis, Athos, and Porthos are Musketeers, and King Louis is in immediate danger of being overthrown by the scheming prince. Faster than they can say “All for one, and one for all,” the boys plot to break out of prison, defend Louis, and return Greg and his parents to the twenty-first century.
Amid narrow escapes, flying arrows, and fiery explosions, the Musketeers battle to save the king— and history itself. Because if the past changes, what happens to Greg’s future?
