The Last Cavalier 9-28-10

I recently finished The Last Cavalier, by Alexandre Dumas.  Dumas was a masterful storyteller and this book, collected from newspaper serials, while unfinished and a bit rough, was a great read.  It fills an area in Dumas' literature's historical timeline.  Placed after the time of the French Kings (Three Musketeers, etc) and the Revolution, but before the fall and return of Napoleon (in Count of Monte Cristo).
