Milady
Milady | Laura L. Sullivan
11 posts | 9 read | 13 to read
She was the greatest nemesis of d'Artagnan and the Three Musketeers--but Milady de Winter was so much more than just a villain in their swashbuckling adventures. I've gone by many names though you know me as Milady de Winter: Villainess, seductress, a secondary player in The Three Musketeers story. But we all know history was written by men, and they so often get things wrong. So before you cast judgment, let me tell you of how a girl from the countryside became the most feared woman in all of Europe. A target for antipathy, a name whispered in fear or loathing. I don't need you to like me. I just need to be free. It's finally time I tell my own story. The truth isn't tidy or convenient, but it's certainly more interesting.

I‘ve always loved the three musqueteers, but thought the killing of milady just because she was at some point a thief was unfair( talking about the first time Athos tries to kill her)
I am glad someone else agrees with me and has written a whole novel exculpating Milady👍

Oh, how I loved this book. Milady is the nemesis of the Three Musketeers. This book is full of love, betrayal, spying, scheming, loss and redemption. Who could ask for more in a book.

This is the story of Milady de Winter, nemesis of D'Artagnan and the Three Musketeers. It's been a long time since I read The Three Musketeers and I don't remember much from it, but I still enjoyed this book completely.

On a side note, this style of cover seems to be a new trend, and I don't find it appealing at all. I can't quite figure out what I don't like about it, but I know I don't like it. But the book was good!

Sace I would like to see people with their heads. Not just torsos. 5mo
Centique I agree with you about the cover. Merging two high colour images together just looks kinda tacky. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 4mo

Wow. I cannot remember the last time I read a book this good. This book has it all, and I won't say a word about the content because it is so masterfully presented and weaved together that I could not reveal one thing without revealing all. Just do yourself a favor and pick up this book and read it ASAP. If you love spies, English court life, historical fiction in general, strong women, and the ties that bind, this book is for you.

This book is everything I wanted! It‘s so good! This book follows a small country girl on her journey to become the most dangerous woman in France.

Do you ever have to look up a word while reading and think “there had to be an easier way to say that”? Today I learned this word.

Well-written and hard to put down.
If you like well-researched historical fiction with strong feminist undertones, then you will probably enjoy this book.
Personally I found it difficult to sympathize with the main character - she did a lot of questionable things and made a lot of bad choices - but this was a fun read nonetheless.

I received this advance reading copy in exchange for an honest review.

Just received this advance copy of Milady by Laura Sullivan. It's a retelling of The Three Musketeers from the point of view of Milady de Winter. I can't wait to start reading it!
