The Man in the Iron Mask is the final episode in the cycle of novels featuring Dumas' celebrated foursome pf D'Artagnan, Athos Porthos and Aramis, who first appeared in The Three Musketeers. Some thirty-five years on, the bonds of comradeship are under strain as they end up on different sides in a power struggle that may undermine the young Louise XIV and change the face on French monarchy.
In the face-faced narrative style that was his trademark, Dumas pitches us straight into the action. What is the secret shared by Aramis and Madame de Chevreuse? Why does the Queen Mother fear its revelation? Who is the mysterios prisoner in the Bastille? And what is the nature of the threat he poses?
Dumas, the master storyteller, keeps us reading and guessing until the climactic scene in the grotto of Locmaria, a fitting conclusion to the epic saga of the musketters.

It was very exciting and interesting to read about the Musketeers who I met before in the book The Three Musketeers .
Now they are twenty-five years older. There are many events that capture interest. Among other things, the young French king is sometimes a very changeable dictators who still can be maneuvered by ministers. The story contains some names and events that have historical accuracy which makes it feel real. I thought the book was good.
