    1. This is the story of Lukas Lohenfels, whose family is driven apart by an evil monk, intent upon finding a relic of power. Along the path to revenge and redemption, Lucas makes some friends, some enemies, and discovers that magic may be realer than he imagined. Who are the Black Musketeers anyway?: "The Black Musketeers were the best fighters in the Reich," he began, "trained in the use of all sorts of weapons and fear by everyone. They served as bodyguards to the Imperial General Wallenstein We [...]


    2. I'd like to start with something that has NOTHING to do with the bookI had no idea until I listened to this audiobook that I was horribly butchering the author's last name. It literally sounds nothing like its spelled.Aside from that disturbing revelation, I enjoyed this book. I listened to this with my daughter, and this is most definitely YA. Neither of us were offended in anyway, and when they said the word "ass" once, my daughter giggled for about 10 minutes. To the point, this is NOT the Ha [...]


    3. This was a great book for a 12 year old boy but it was not really meant for me. I gave it a try because I love The Hangman's Daughter series. This was not a bad book but I do not recommend this for adult women.


    4. I enjoyed this book - thank you NetGalley for approving my request to read it. as all the Hangman's Daughters books it was well written and captivated me from the start, and lasted the entire book. Characters that I care about and look forward to the next book about them as I believe the ending left open for a continuation, I recommend this book.



    5. I gave it three stars as this book was certainly more suited to a young adult readership.It is set in the midst of the Thirty Years' War - a period in which the famed Black Musketeers were active. Fredrich von Lohenfels recounts his days as one of the Musketeers to his young son Lukas, who has trained in the martial arts.When the Inquisition arrives,Lukas' mother is taken by the Spanish allies of the Kaiser to Heidelberg as a suspected witch. What Lukas does not know, is that the Inquisitor - Wa [...]


    6. Definitely YA fiction, with some difficult themes; but also some common recurring tropes that are easily recognisable. Another translates work (that makes three today!) so a little wooden but not too badly so.


    7. I would like to thank NetGalley for the opportunity to review this book. Oliver Potzsch has written a story that surrounds the reader with magic and swashbuckling adventure.Lukas is the son of a nobleman who fought with the musketeers in service to the Kaiser. Now he has turned thirteen and has learned the art of swordsmanship from his father. It is 1631 and Waldemar Von Schonborn, the grand inquisitor, is responsible for the death of his father and the accusation of witchcraft against his mothe [...]


    8. Book of the Night by Oliver Potzsch is a YA novel set in the midst of the Thirty Years War, a series of wars in Central Europe that became one of the longest and most devastating conflicts in European history. Lukas' thirteenth birthday is the last he spends with his family. The next day, his father is murdered, his mother arrested as a witch, and his nine-year-old sister Elsa is taken by the wicked inquisitor. Only Lukas manages to escape.Lukas has promised his sister that he will find her and [...]


    9. Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for providing me an advance copy of this book for review.I have read several of this author's other books in the Hangman's Daughter series and have enjoyed them, and this one didn't disappoint either. The setting is quite bleak - I'm not sure how anyone lived back in those days - war, famine, pestilence - and sometimes I don't like historical fiction for that reason. But the characters in this book (and in his others) make up for it - well developed and inte [...]


    10. Inhalt „Die Schwarzen Musketiere“ ist das erste Jugendbuch des Bestsellerautors Oliver Pötzsch.Fechten, Reiten, auf die Jagd gehen – das Leben des jugendlichen Grafensohns Lukas ist wie ein großes Abenteuer. Doch von einem Tag auf den anderen ist nichts mehr, wie es war: Der Inquisitor Waldemar von Schönborn lässt Lukas‘ Mutter verhaften, um sie als Hexe zu verhören – und Lukas‘ Vater stirbt beim Versuch, sie zu befreien. Lukas selbst flüchtet, doch seine kleine Schwester Elsa [...]


    11. I don't even know how to start this review because unlike other reviewers I didn't like this book. In fact I only read 3/4ths of the book. In the past, I would never stop reading a book unless I was totally disgusted with the book and even then, I tried hard to finish. Starting in 2017, I decided my free time is limited and no longer do I hang on to reading books I just can't get into. This is where I am with Book of the Night I stopped reading it. Perhaps I will pick it up later and finish it, [...]


    12. I wave my orb of discernment over this volume, the cover changes and I see a name appear, Rafael Sabatini. Yes, we have the young, ever so good and moral master swordsman, none of Alexandre Dumas' riff-raff for this tale. Revenge! Yes that monster Schonborn killed his parents and abducted his little sister. Trusty comrades are met along the way. Wait, we are missing Romance, Rafael would be displeased.This book has been updated from those old fashioned swashbuckler tales, there's one strong fema [...]


    13. Vielen Dank an den Bloomoon Verlag, dass ich bei der Leserunde dabei sein durfte!Leider habe ich mich mit dem Buch recht schwergetan. Der Einstieg mit dem Prolog verrät uns, dass es ein Objekt, vermutlich das im Titel angesprochene Buch gibt, dass von Nonnen versteckt wird. Doch das Versteck ist nicht länger sicher, da jemand es unbedingt in seinen Besitz bringen will. Kurz darauf begegnen wir Lukas, einem 12-Jährigen, der an einem schicksalshaften Tag seine Familie verliert. Sein Vater wird [...]


    14. Interesting tale of a young boy coming to age in a time of war. After his father and mother are murders, and his sister is kidnapped, Lukas barely survives the mercenaries after him. He flees and finds good friends. During his adventures, he finds friends that he can count on and joins the regiment of the Black Musketeers while he searches for his missing sister as he promised his white witch mother. There is lots of sword fighting and magical events in the story. It was a good read, but Lukas w [...]


    15. I listened to this on Audible and I was immediately pulled in to the story. Mr. Potzch has a wonderful way of weaving history into an excellent story. This one included a bit of magic which I love. The characters are memorable, enjoyable and valiant. I enjoyed this book more than his hangman's debut novel and indeed had decided a few years ago not to read anything else of his. But this one looked so good and it delivered. I will likely add him back to my authors to read or perhaps listen to list [...]


    16. I was a great fan of the Hangman's Daughter and so signed up for this. As with all of Potzsch's books, this blends graphic history with a great story. So if you are looking for a 'great read' then I would recommend. There are some points I would bring up. 1. Unlike the Hangman's series in which the focus is on proving that magic is NOT involved, this has magic at its center. Although it only touches on the fantasy world in a few spots, if you are looking for true historical fiction, then I would [...]


    17. I agree with an earlier poster- this is a great book for a very good young (upper elementary or middle school) reader but it's not an adult book. We'll written. Some plot issues but still above average there. And finally, I didn't finish, just skipped to end to find out what happened. Will finish and if I change my mind will state it here.


    18. One of the best novels I've readI'm enamored by the flowing adventures of the main character in the story, by the name of Lucus. The storyline is spellbinding, the historical narration of the war, the travels through the country's city's, this is a great read. It has tremendous importance in the history of mankind centuries ago. Are we still similar to those from centuries ago.


    19. An exciting new beginning!I was elated to see a new series by Oliver Potzsch. I've enjoyed the Hangman's Daughter series immensely. This book did not disappoint. The characters and the storyline were interesting and the writing was as I've come to expect. I'll be anxiously awaiting book two!


    20. This was a fun and easy read, but not on the same caliber of The Hangman’s Daughter series. Feel a bit like a teen novel? Maybe that is what he was going for? Looks like this will be a series too? I like the historical tidbits.


    21. This book had good aspects and meh ones. It's definitely written YA, which I'm usually ok with, but this one was a little too dumbed down . However, the last 1/4 was great and it ended with a promise of more, better adventures to come!


    22. Sword fights, evil vs good, and magicGreat fun, and a wonderful adventure. This is my second book by this author and he can tell a good story. Loved hangman's daughter. Lukas and Elsa's story is more young adult, but really enjoyable for all ages.


    23. Swashbuckling adventure!I need a book to listen to for a ten hour road trip, and this book did the trick! If you like the Ranger Apprentice Series you will probably enjoy this. Male hero, sword fights, happy ending, all is good.


    24. Great readEasy to get drawn into the world the author creates. I enjoy his writing style immensely. I read the Hangman' s Daughter series which were great, and this book is just as colorfully written. Highly recommended.


    25. Loved the book and characters and the plot and the story was so exciting I have read all His hangmansDaughter books and as you read the story seems so real like I am right thereI wish he would write more of the same.


    26. Another page turnerI'm a sucker for a book that keeps me reading until my eyes are burning and I can no longer keep them open. Potsch does not fail to deliver with this one. My only regret is that I didn't read it months ago when I purchased it.



    27. Wonderful. Didn't want to put it down.Would love to keep reading more. Is there more to this story?The character's are great. They are brought to life in detail.


    28. I loved it. A perfect book to read when traveling. It's almost an adult ya book. It kept me intrigued. I can't wait for book number 2. Good guys, bad guys, magic and mayhem. Perfect!
