    "In the tide of great affairs, it is not the many who make the crucial choices, but the individual. Mobs do not decide the fate of the world, or even armies. It is always one man - or woman - often unknown to history, working in secret, dedicated to a greater good, who shifts the tides...

    I have mixed feelings about this book. I'll start with the good stuff: The writing has a beautiful literary quality. Sometimes I'd stop and linger over an elegantly worded sentence. Sullivan clearly knows her history. The dialogue rings true for the times. Little details are spri...

    4.5 Laura Sulivan's Milady is a delightfully robust and thought-provoking addition to Duma's Three Musketeers canon.. Told from Milady de Winters' POV, Sullivan gives voice to the supposed villainess of the story, gifting her with a refreshing no-nonsense and firm unapologetic attit...

    One of my all-time favorite books is The Three Musketeers, and one of my all-time favorite characters is Milady De Winter. So of course, when I saw this book, I had to read it. I even ordered it before it came out. Now there is a strange myth and lore surrounding The Three Musketee...

    When I was barely coming into my adolescents, I discovered the swashbuckling adventures of The Three Musketeers. Albeit on the big screen and not the Dumas novel, but swashbuckling adventure all the same! I loved the 1993 film version, even if I did hate Charlie Sheen and Chris O?...

    There?s nothing more satisfying than a riveting tale with a swash-buckling, cunning female spy at its center. MILADY is a worthy addition to the canon of THE THREE MUSKETEERS, told with well-paced, elegant prose and a keen eye for historical detail. I couldn?t put the book down! ...

    I had no idea who Milady was. I have not read The Three Musketeers and I am not at all familiar with who Milady de Winter was or what her story was. That being said I picked up this story excited to learn all that I could about this girl who was young and naive living with her mother u...

    The Three Musketeers from Milady?s Perspective In this novel, the arch-villainess of the Three Musketeers, Milady de Winter, tells her own story. She began as a simple country girl, Clarice, and rose to the highest courts in Europe. Much of the novel is devoted to her early life g...

    I cannot state this enough: I have been waiting for this book for years! While I haven't read the original Three Musketeers, I have watching the TV series and have always had a soft spot for Milady. A badass woman who's a spy and an assassin?? Um, hell yes! And (thank god), Milady by L...

    Let me preface this by saying that I am one of the only people on the planet who isn?t familiar with the Three Musketeers. I knew OF them, but had never heard, read, or watched their story. In fact, until recently, I had no idea the story was about four men and not three. Needless to...

    The premise seemed to be different than the book and its hard to enjoy it when they don't seem to coincide. It took longer for me to get through this book since there was no real connection for me to the plot or the characters. I wanted to enjoy this one but for reasons, I couldn't. ...

    As soon as I saw that Milday was a retelling of The Three Musketeers from the villainess's perspective, I knew I had to read it. And this book was just wonderful. It was quite obvious that the author had done her research, both in regard to the time period and the original source mater...

    ?We all know history was written by men, and they so often get things wrong.? I always love a good reversal of classic stories, where the villain becomes the central character, and the hero's faults are exposed. A story that makes you think about why the villain acted the way ...

    I received an ARC from First to Read for an honest review. I really wanted to like this book. Milday is an intriguing villainess and to hear her own story sounded exciting. Except she seems to be a woman that things happen to instead of one who makes them happen. There are a few events...
