The Last Musketeer #2: Traitor's Chase by Stuart Gibbs

Traitor's Chase (The Last Musketeer, #2)This book is the second in the series, and I gave it a rating of four out of five. Greg Rich, D'Artagnan, fears that Michel Dinicoeur has traveled to Spain to retrieve the Devil's Stone and to lead a Spanish army against King Louis in Paris. The Musketeers head to Spain to find out what's actually going on, but their teamwork starts to suffer during the long trip through the forests and down the river. Milady is actually making things worse, and Greg suspects she's trying to break them apart. He's not sure what Milady is planning. but she's also managed to get the Musketeers to question Greg's trust. When the Musketeers finally discover Michel's and Milady's plans, there may be no way to stop them from conquering France.

I enjoyed reading about the adventures of the Musketeers, although this plot had less action than the first book. The characters' have unique personalities and strengths which is why King Louis decided to make them a team. Greg's strength is in getting people to work together, and the conflicts in this plot challenge all of his abilities. I enjoy the mystery in the series, and it's more adventurous than regular fiction books.
