The Last Musketeer #1 by Stuart Gibbs

The Last Musketeer (The Last Musketeer, #1)This book is very adventurous, and I gave it a rating of five out of five. Greg and has parents are transported back four-hundred years in time when an evil official, Michel Dinicoeur, from King Louis XIII's court steals his mother's magical necklace. The parents are captured, sent to prison, and sentenced to die in three days. Greg manages to escape and meets Aramis, Athos, and finally Porthos, The Three Musketeers; only they aren't Musketeers yet. The boys agree to help Greg rescue his parents, but the problem is bigger than they imagined. The prison seems impenetrable, but there are some confusing things happening. It's almost like Michel Dinicoeur has a twin, and he seems to know what they're going to do before it happens.

I found this book at my local library, and I enjoyed it more than I expected. The plot has a great deal of action and mystery, and it also teaches a little bit about the history of Paris. Despite the fact that Greg came from the future, he uses almost none of his knowledge to help solve his problems. That was very unexpected. I am interested to see how the second book continues the story.
