Still-Life with a Basket of Fruit and Game by Frans Snyders

If you don’t understand my new passion for Pierre Pevel’s book, “The Cardinal’s blades” you just have to take a look at the French book cover. I mean, how could I possibly not love a book with Richelieu, 17th Century, AND dragons. LOOK HOW AWESOME HE LOOKS ! HOW PERFECT IS THE PICTURE !
If you like fantasy READ IT there’s magic and everything ! if you like the Three Musketeers or any cloak and dagger’s novel READ IT Athos d’Artagnan aren’t the main characters but damn they’re as good and even better ! If you like history READ IT Pierre Pevel did a real work on his sources and Paris’ atmosphere in the 17th Century !
I assure you that you wont be disappointed.
