Book II Count II: CAPTAIN MEDUSALOCKS AND HIS BLACK STYGIAN IBLIS. One need wonder no longer, as The Sultan of Monte Cristo unfolds in the spirit of Alexandre Dumas - the spirit that creates in its readers a hunger and a thirst for literature.

Book II Count II: CAPTAIN MEDUSALOCKS AND HIS BLACK STYGIAN IBLIS. Book II Count III: ADMIRAL JARRE OF THE FRENCH NAVY. Book II Count IV: MERCEDES’ DISCOVERY. Book II Count V: HOUSE OF AUTEUIL. Book II Count VI: COUNTESS G. Book II Count VII: DANTES WAXES ELOQUENT. Book II Count VIII: THE INIMITABLE RAYMEE. This sequel picks up in the 1840s, when Dumas is working as an investigative reporter, and publishes The Count of Monte Cristo.

It isn’t solely her charm and exquisite beauty that infatuate the Count of Monte Cristo, but that Haydee has confessed that she will die without him. The reawakening of his former self as Edmond Dantes. The reawakening of his former self as Edmond Dantes, resulting from that haunting visit to his dungeon on Chateau D’If, has given rise within him to questions of how long Haydee will wait if he were to disappear. Is she as weak and faithless as Mercedes? Should he put her to the test?

Having no former knowledge of The Count of Monte Cristo hinders the reader's understanding of the protagonist's current situation, but additional sequels provide a format that allows room for necessary background information to be provided.

Having no former knowledge of The Count of Monte Cristo hinders the reader's understanding of the protagonist's current situation, but additional sequels provide a format that allows room for necessary background information to be provided. Dantes' character is undoubtedly flawed, a huge asset in terms of presenting a relatable protagonist. Offering further insight into his past will allow audiences to better understand his former behaviors and appreciate the lengths to which he will go to try to remedy his wrongdoings.

You certainly can count on that, dear Sultan. Raymee is right, and Mumad is an eager student, learning his part well and quickly, as the day approaches when they are to perform for the Caliph

You certainly can count on that, dear Sultan. Raymee is right, and Mumad is an eager student, learning his part well and quickly, as the day approaches when they are to perform for the Caliph. As the caravan arrives in Mecca, the stage is set literally and symbolically for the play and events to unfold. No, Your Majesty, I can only show my face to my betrothed, and I have not yet decided if he is worthy of my love. He has passed two tests so far; first he wrote me a beautiful poem, and second he found my voice attractive; less important, though still a requirement to win my heart, is that he is handsome.

I clearly understand that Sultan of Monte Cristo is not the real sequel to the hugely popular adventure novel by Alexander Dumas, but with a powerful story written by the Holy Ghost Writer, I couldn't help but have second thoughts. The Sultan of Monte Cristo had impressed me because like the original book, this one is epic! Edmond Dantes continued with his immense number of disguises and conquests. He made Haydee a sultana, and he, her slave

The Count of Monte Cristo (French: Le Comte de Monte-Cristo) is an adventure novel by French author Alexandre Dumas (père) completed in 1844. It is one of the author's more popular works, along with The Three Musketeers.

The Count of Monte Cristo (French: Le Comte de Monte-Cristo) is an adventure novel by French author Alexandre Dumas (père) completed in 1844.

The book was billed as the sequel to the Count of Monte Cristo, and remained true to the original characters. If you truly loved the Count of Monte Cristo and expect good quality writing from this book I would sugge I read the Count of Monte Cristo and wanted more. Nothing could be farther from the truth. To start with, Haydee is a Christian in the original.

For so many years, passionate fans of The Count of Monte Cristo have suffered a loss upon finishing Alexandre Dumas' last words. until now. The mysterious Holy Ghost Writer has penned "The Sultan of Monte Cristo" as a direct continuance of the story readers have long struggled against leaving behind. The adventure-laden journeys of Edmond Dantes continues in (Dumas') newly-honed role as investigative reporter who publishes his (original) book as part of (this) story.

Edmond Dantes, the Count of Monte Cristo, Sultan of Monte Cristo, Sinbad the Sailor, Sultan of Albania

Edmond Dantes, the Count of Monte Cristo, Sultan of Monte Cristo, Sinbad the Sailor, Sultan of Albania. Each of these is the same man, originally known as Edmond Dantes from Alexander Dumas’ The Count of Monte Cristo. The Holy Ghost Writer (That Girl Started Her Own Country, 2012) begins this sequel with Dantes (first introduced in the series as Sinbad the Sailor), who’s struggling with an identity crisis.

Reading the The Sultan of Monte Cristo is like meeting old friends who have not changed over time, a sense of pure delight

Reading the The Sultan of Monte Cristo is like meeting old friends who have not changed over time, a sense of pure delight. This book is a must read for all Alexander Dumas fans and also those who have a craving for complex plots and fabulous characterization. Though one can find Dumas' characters in this book, there are many new characters.

This vivid novel offers much entertainment and excitement throughout its telling of various adventures.  Although the main character's motives are presented, only small portions of the story involve his attempted redemption, leaving room for resolution in a subsequent sequel.  Creating a more obvious through line that better connects all of the characters and their actions will improve the overall narrative while the multitude of subplots offer the creative material necessary to build a compelling series. Having no former knowledge of The Count of Monte Cristo hinders the reader's understanding of the protagonist's current situation, but additional sequels provide a format that allows room for necessary background information to be provided.  Dantes' character is undoubtedly flawed, a huge asset in terms of presenting a relatable protagonist.  Offering further insight into his past will allow audiences to better understand his former behaviors and appreciate the lengths to which he will go to try to remedy his wrongdoings. Raymee is introduced rather abruptly, but is a strong and gripping character nonetheless.  One is instantly impressed by her intelligence and confidence and appreciates the desperation of her situation.  Raymee's motives are a bit muddled, as her desire seems to change from one of avoiding her betrothal in favor of true love to that of acceptance of her fate in exchange for power.  The disclosure of Dantes' influence on her behavior is a brilliant addition, as it strongly connects the two characters and allows for vivid representation of the monstrosity of revenge.  The castrations are unexpected and graphic, characteristics highly indicative of current popular television programs.  Parallels between Raymee and Daenerys Targaryen from the program Game of Thrones can certainly be drawn, as each beautiful female develops from youth to a place of authority, cunningly demonstrating her power to influence her subjects.  Raymee's continued rise, especially following the implied birth of the Arabian prince, and potential fall is certainly deserving of further exploration, particularly if she continues to gain inspiration from Dantes' past.
  • I don't know if it was just coincidence or what, but last month, I was able to watch The Count of Monte Cristo (the 2007 film) and so the setting and story is still fresh on my mind. (Although I was able to read the book a few years ago). I clearly understand that Sultan of Monte Cristo is not the real sequel to the hugely popular adventure novel by Alexander Dumas, but with a powerful story written by the Holy Ghost Writer, I couldn't help but have second thoughts.

    The Sultan of Monte Cristo had impressed me because like the original book, this one is epic! Edmond Dantes continued with his immense number of disguises and conquests. He made Haydee a sultana, and he, her slave. They had their first encounter with the giant pirate leader, Captain Medusalocks and were successful in bringing him down and even delivering him to the French Navy fleet.

    Mercedes Herrera, yes, the same Mercedes whom Dantes' first dearly loved, happened on an old missive written by Dantes' father. And she just had the most interesting plan on how to deliver it to the Count. And so the exciting adventure began.

    Holy Ghost Writer writes like Alexander Dumas, even better, I should say. I really enjoyed reading Sultan of Monte Cristo, it was as exciting and intriguing and brilliant and swashbuckling as I thought it should be. Truly a commendable book!

  • If you loved and is an avid fan of the classic The Count of Monte Cristo, then you will open your mouth agape and roll your eyeballs in their socket while reading this.

    This is not the sequel per se, this is for those thinking what may happen to the characters in the classic novel. Take the lead character, Edmond Dantes, enhance what talent, skills and smarts he has, add some more then you will have a novel worth playing with him. If you are not a wide reader and is not into many genres of novels then this is not for you. This is an intelligent read on the travels, lives, encounters and paths of the characters, not just Sir Edmon. If you are not open to these kind of books then you will not believe his journey as a pirate/sailor, christian/muslim, lover/playboy, diplomat/schemer and peacelover/warmonger. Many ironies in one character. Reviews won't give the book justice.

    As like the author, Holy Ghost Writer, this is a mystery within a mystery, and I love it!

  • If you read The Count of Monte Cristo, you might reasonably expect this book to follow it as a continuation. It doesn’t, not exactly. It is written in a completely different way to that book and there are several stories in one here. That said, readers of the original will more than likely enjoy it.
    I didn’t but I cannot fault the writer’s flair for words and the way that the story draws you in and takes you to the setting of the story, allows you to see it through the eyes of the character. Whether you were a fan of The Count of Monte Cristo or not, there is no doubting that this First Sequel will at least whet your appetite for more.
    I would recommend it to one who is a bit of a history buff and those who enjoy the cut and thrust world of adventure stories. The Holy Ghost Writer is, without a shadow of a doubt, extremely talented and knows how to develop a storyline and the characters to match.

  • What makes this book so good is the author's ability to bring the characters back to life. It's no easy task and it's almost as if the writer is able to channel the energy of Alexandre Dumas's in his re-imaginings The book does a fantastic job of staying true to the original story, yet also being its own unique work. Holy Ghost Writer has done an incredible job matching the writing style of Alexandre Dumas whom wrote the original Count of Monte Cristo. The Sultan of Monte Cristo sequel is proving to be even better than the original and more intriguing with the added mystery of the author, who we only know as the Holy Ghost Writer. I definitely suggest picking this up and add it to the top of your reading list.

  • The Sultan of Monte Cristo is a most captivating tale. It's a page turner for sure, Loaded with intrigue, subterfuge and a schema that promises a seductive if somewhat complicated future, the characters are revealed in all their glory, chapter by chapter. The language is rich, the imagery even more so. The first of a series of books, the author who hides behind the nom de plume of Holy Ghost Writer teases the reader to pay attention as book by book, s/he will drop hints throughout that will reveal the true identity of the writer. The plot thickens. Stay tuned. .

  • I've read The Count of Monte Cristo way back my high school days and have seen the film adaptation as well. It’s such a good read that I couldn't help but wonder what happened to the characters after finishing the book, and the reason why I got this book. Since this is a sequel to the original Count of Monte Cristo, I was expecting it’ll start from where the original book left off. Instead, the author made a lot of twist with the characters and made the book a bit more sensual as well. I’m not sure how the next books will do or if I even liked this one, I guess you be the judge.

  • Interesting book not what I was expecting. If you are a hard core lover of "The Count of Monte Cristo" and are looking for a true sequel this isn't for you. With that said I did find enjoyment reading this book. The original characters are there with continuation of their story just not strictly how I would see Alexander Dumas carrying on the story. If you are looking for a good book to read on a lzy afternoon or if you just like to read everything like I do then this is a great book for you.
