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.

Praise For The Last Musketeer

“From the gripping first sentence...the excitement never flags in this newly imagined Musketeer adventure. Using Alexandre Dumas’ stories as a jumping-off point, Gibbs mixes fact, fantasy and thrills to create a galloping swashbuckler.”
-Kirkus Reviews

“[An] action-packed tale.”
-Publishers Weekly

“Gibbs’ playful, action-packed twist on the classic novel includes plenty of humor as Greg attempts to fit into medieval life. An entertaining premise and high adventure.”
-ALA Booklist
