Picking up right after The French Orphan, Pierre- the new Marquis de Beauvoir, his friend Armand and trusty valet, Jean are off to claim the Beauvoir property of Montresor.

When the group arrives at the estate, they begin to find that things have not been kept quite right from when Pierre's cousin Henri ran the estate.

I, as a fortunate participant in the Goodreads First Reads giveaway program, received a copy of The Secrets of Montrésor thereby securing an opportunity to journey alongside the intrepid Pierre and Armand as they continued their epic adventure.

In this sequel to The French Orphan, issues at one of Pierre’s estates waylay the friends as they attempt to fulfill their Templar quest. Pierre’s valet, Jean, and Armand’s cousin, François, assist Pierre and Armand in rectifying Montrésor’s problems, but

I received a free copy through Goodreads.
This is the first book of the series that I have read. It was fairly easy to pick up, and the bulk of the blanks were easy to fill in (like what happened in Book 1).

I was so looking forward to reading this book, based on the back cover. However, I was a little disappointed with how it turned out. Now don't get me wrong, the story is very interesting, filled with deceit, adventures and murder. It was interesting to see how the boys avert one crisis afte

I don't think I've ever read a more adventurous book. There is every single scenario you could possibly imagine. There are politics, scandal, contempt, jealousy, adventure, danger, romance even! I don't see how anyone could possibly not enjoy this book! You will instantly fall in love with Pierre's boyish charms. Long for the seductively handsome Armand. All the while cursing out against Henri the evil scoundrel, devil incarnate. And find yourself remarkable impressed by a very loyal servant, J ...more

Another good book

This second book of the series was not quite as good as the first one, but well worth reading all the same. Picking up from where the first book leaves off, the adventures and intrigue continue. It's a fast paced, hard to put down book encompassing aristocratic life in the 1640's Europe. The young men main characters are now on a mission and seem to get into trouble wherever they go. It's a bit hard to imagine the lifestyles and customs of these people, but the author dies a sup

Yes another triumph from this awesome author. As I said about the first in the series, I say again about No.2 - This fast paced story is full of surprizes, and had me hooked after the first couple of pages. The are lighter comic comic moments which are very welcome, and should, in my opinion anyway, be included in all books. The prose really does have the power to transport the reader back to those bygone days of yore. I anxiously all that he writes in the future.

I enjoyed the book. The characters have developed and the author has the same facility of engaging the reader so that the book must be finished. I am glad that it was expressed to be number 2 in the series, so that I was not expecting it to be resolved at the end and then being disappointed that some issues were left for the next book.
A good book. I would certainly have not finished it otherwise as I find it difficult to read books that do not hold my interest.
