(Translated) Publisher blurb:
Paris, 1633. Louis XIII sits upon the throne of France while Richelieu governs. The Cardinal, one of the most powerful and threatened personalities of his time, must protect himself from the Crown's enemies.
Spying, assassination, war, everything is a mean to their end... including sorcery, the weapon of the realm's most dangerous enemies: dragons. These fierce creatures, coming from the dawn of time, are hiding within humans, conspiring to conquer power. Already the Spanish Court has come under their sway.
In this spring night, Richelieu decides to play his master card. It is time to recreate the secret elite force he used to commandeer, a squad of fearless, exceptional adventurers and fighters, showing elegance, courage and wits: Les Lames du Cardinal (the Cardinal's Blades).
