Note "A sequel to 'The Three Musketeers.'"
First published as a serial in the Parisian weekly Les nouvelles, October 17, 1865, to March 23, 1866.
Contains the novella entitled 'The Dove,' that was written as the first "sequel" to 'The Red Sphinx' which recounted the final adventures of Moret and Cardinal Richelieu.
Summary Red Sphinx picks up right where the The Three Musketeers left off, continuing the stories of Cardinal Richelieu, Queen Anne, and King Louis XIII and introducing a charming new hero, the Comte de Moret, a real historical figure from the period. A young cavalier newly arrived in Paris, Moret is an illegitimate son of the former king, and thus half-brother to King Louis. The French Court seethes with intrigue as king, queen, and cardinal all vie for power, and young Moret soon finds himself up to his handsome neck in conspiracy, danger, and passionate romance. Dumas wrote seventy-five chapters of The Red Sphinx, all for serial publication, but he never quite finished it, and so the novel languished for almost a century before its first book publication in France in 1946. While Dumas never completed the book, he had earlier written a separate novella, The Dove, that recounted the final adventures of Moret and Cardinal Richelieu. Now for the first time, in one cohesive narrative, The Red Sphinx and The Dove make a complete and satisfying storyline, a rip-roaring novel of historical adventure.
