This very much felt like I was watching the show Versailles but only in reading form. There is certainly a very Dumas-like feel to the story, most likely because it is a French story and takes place in the 1600's. There isn't really all that too much action adventure involved but it still was a pleasant read and kept me nicely engaged.
