Book cover

First Page:

THE

SON OF MONTE CRISTO.

SEQUEL TO

THE WIFE OF MONTE CRISTO,

AND END OF THE CONTINUATION TO

ALEXANDER DUMAS' CELEBRATED NOVEL OF

"THE COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO."

"The Son of Monte Cristo" stands at the head of all exciting and absorbing novels. It is the sequel to "The Wife of Monte Cristo," and the end of the continuation of Alexander Dumas' phenomenal romance of "The Count of Monte Cristo." Like its renowned predecessors, it absolutely swarms with thrilling and dramatic incidents and adventures, everything being fresh, original and delightful. The spell of fascination is cast over the reader in the opening chapter and remains unbroken to the end. It deals chiefly with the astounding career of Esperance, Monte Cristo's son, whose heroic devotion to Jane Zeld is one of the most touching and romantic love stories ever written. The scenes in Algeria have a wild charm, especially the abduction of Esperance and his struggle with the Sultan on the oasis in the desert. Haydée's experience in the slave mart at Constantinople is particularly stirring and realistic, while the episodes in which the Count of Monte Cristo figures are exceedingly graphic. The entire novel is powerful and interesting in the extreme. That it will be read by all who have read "The Count of Monte Cristo" and will delight them is certain.

"The Son of Monte Cristo," the sequel to "The Wife of Monte Cristo," and end of the continuation of Dumas' masterwork, "The Count of Monte Cristo," is in all respects a great novel. Romantic in the highest degree, powerful in the widest sense of the term and absorbingly interesting, it is a work absolutely without parallel at the present day. Every chapter has a strong and stirring feature of its own, while all the legions of intensely thrilling incidents are as original and surprising as they are strong. The hero is Esperance, the son of the Count of Monte Cristo, who is followed from boyhood to the close of his wonderful and unprecedented career. His varied and remarkable adventures form a succession of amazing episodes never equalled in fiction, while his love for the unfortunate Jane Zeld and the strange complications to which it gives rise are depicted in the most fascinating fashion. The Count of Monte Cristo and Haydée also have thrilling adventures, and Mercédès, Benedetto, Sanselme and Danglars, together with Fanfar, again appear. The hosts of admirers of "The Count of Monte Cristo" should read "The Son of Monte Cristo," as well as all who relish a novel of rare merit. They will certainly be delighted with it.
