Microreview 29: Les Lames du Cardinal

Pevel, Pierre. Les Lames du Cardinal. 3 vols (Les Lames du Cardinal, L’Alchimiste des Ombres, Le Dragon des Arcanes). Paris, Bragelonne, 2007-2010. ISBN 978-2352944904.

Where French fantasy differs from American. 17th Century uchronia, brilliantly renewing the Dumas musketeer universe. Admirably detailed & accurate historically – plus dragons. I give ****/5.
