SWORD AGAINST THE ROBE 

THE ADVENTURES OF MONSIEUR DE LA DONAREE THE MUSKETEER

 

"The Adventures of Monsieur de La Donaree the Musketeer" is a swashbuckling, romantic tale which is set in seventeenth century Europe. Monsieur Donaree is a relatively new member of King Louis XIV.'s personal bodyguard who is alarmed to find out that the love of his life, the beautiful Madame Charlotte de La Rose, has been mysteriously abducted and carried off to England. Donaree's adventures to find her take him, not only into England, but also to the open sea to face Pirates, and even on toward the coast of Spain. The story is paced with adventurous sword-play, high-drama, un-guessable mystery, occasional comedy, and even romance! The adventures of Donaree recaptures the exciting novels of the greatest swashbuckling writers of the past, mixed with the lavish swashbuckling movies of the first part of the twentieth century, and it spins them all together with modern experimental ideas. Even though the Introduction gives necessary historical information which properly places the Musketeers into their relatively unknown place in history, the first chapter starts off with an intense duel - which causes the victor, who does not kill his opponent, to wonder what had caused the painstaking battle to be fought in the first place. He was insulted, it is true, but he cannot figure the reason of the bout. However, as Monsieur Donaree will find out, his mysterious challenger will haunt him for the rest of his adventure; and it will take him a while to put the pieces of the puzzle together of how this mysterious duel was actually an attempt to stop him from pursuing his advancements to find his lady. But why is this? Follow Donaree as he unravels the mystery!

CAPTAIN SKULL: FROM THE MEMOIRS OF SIR CHARLES OF RILEY

The memories of young Charles, and of his adventures upon the waters of the Caribbean and Spanish Main, where he meets and joins with the legendary Captain Skull. But, before his adventure even begins onboard the Skull Ship, he manages to fall madly in love with Lady Rebecca Armstrong, an aristocratic beauty on the tropical island of Jamaica. However, and after learning that she was actually married to the man who had become his sworn and bitter enemy, young Charles (who had changed his name to Sir Charles of Riley, in trying to appear better born than he was) hopes that an adventurous life upon the open sea ~ with a band of Pirate gentlemen ~ will help him to forget that dear lady . . . that is, until he accidently bumps into her again, only a year later, in England. Having last seen her in a very bad way (that is, with lying to, and of stealing from her and her husband), Charles begins to realize that he may have made some terrible mistakes in the recent past, and he begins to wonder if she will ever forgive him!

SWORD AGAINST THE ROBE


On the first Monday of April 1625, in Paris, Monsieur Charles d'Avaloy, a lieutenant in Louis XIII's Guard, suddenly finds himself mixed up in some high intrigue. Other than duels (which, admittedly, he has done quite often, and for a long time), the soldier normally keeps away from public life as much as possible. So, why, all of a sudden, does somebody want him dead? And, whoever it is, is willing to set assassins at his heels to make sure that the job gets done right ... Again, dueling other soldiers for honor is one thing, but assassination attempts are quite another! Within a single evening, not only is this man's life turned completely upside-down, but in order to keep this matter as hushed as possible, several other men have already been murdered – one of them just for attempting to warn him!

 

To top things off, and on this same eerie evening, Monsieur d'Avaloy's brother, who's a priest, happens to also visit – mysteriously, after nine years of them being separated – to warn him to turn away from a life of the sword, else it will be his undoing! Even though the priest admits that he knows nothing of these sudden attempts upon his brother's life, the soldier does begin to wonder if the man's presence and words are a prophesy, or just a weird coincidence. Is God truly, and through these strange occurrences, trying to sway the solider away from his violent lifestyle? That is, since he has killed every single man with whom he has dueled? Or – and, as the soldier also begins to think is God only besetting him with these current, horrible things to finally destroy him in the name of justice? Whatever's happening, will Monsieur d'Avaloy turn away from his life of violence and accept a life of priestly robes – since he feels that this is the real reason for his brother's visit? Or, will he end up dying by the sword, since he has been living by the Sword? ... Even though the priest assures him that his visit is only to give him peace within his heart (because, since his youth, the soldier has suffered horribly from deep depression – a result of the daily thrashings from his supposed Christian father), and to tell him that by accepting faith in God, and of stopping all the violence, that it will finally set him at liberty ... But, after everything is said and done, what will the end results be? Will the swordsman, through all of these events, find out that these circumstances, which have finally caught up with him, truly are the results of his life of the sword as opposed to a life of faith? Or, rather, the difference of having peace in one's heart who wears the priestly robes, as opposed to the violent, disturbing lifestyle of those who fiercely wield a blade? In other words, perhaps his has been a life of a sword against the robe!
