Rousing, big, spirited, its action sweeping across oceans and continents, its hero gloriously indomitable, the last novel of Alexandre Dumas--lost for 125 years in the archives of the National Library in Paris--completes the oeuvre that Dumas imagined at the outset of his literary career.Indeed, the story of France from the Renaissance to the nineteenth century, as Dumas vibrantly retold it in his numerous enormously popular novels, has long been absent one vital, richly historical era: the Age of Napoleon. But no longer. Now, dynamically, in a tale of family honor and undying vengeance, of high adventure and heroic derring-do, The Last Cavalier fills that gap.

its really too bad that they havent found the rest of the book. however, i am glad that the editor added the ''LOST LEGACY'' with the letter informing us[the readers] of the original plotline all the way to the end;]

Pushed as the last lost book by Dumas. Was OK, but too historical for me - not interested in that era or those people. Didn't finish.
