A Vital Link

First of all let me say I am on my fourth listen to this book. Jeff Woodman voices Lord John Grey with tremendous wit and style, he does a fine job with the other characters as well (although Davina Porter fans may find fault with his Jamie Fraser). The story is intriguing on it's own (ahem, yes he's gay, yes there is sex, it doesn't get graphic until 4 or 5 hours into the book with plenty of foreshadowing - those who claim to be shocked at this remind me of Claude Rains in "Casablanca"). Beyond that there is social and political intrigue, great battle scenes and a family mystery.

If you are a Gabaldon fan and plan to read/listen to "Echo in the Bone" this is a must for many reasons. Chacters and story lines come back to haunt us, but most critically this book shows us Lord John Grey in depth. He's no longer a 'minor character' in Echo, and I for one am glad.

slight companion book to Voyager

If you want more detail into Voyager (Oulander series) this is Lord John's story during some of those years. The other Lord John books remembers Jamie but does not interact with him. The other LJ books have NOTHING to do with Outlander. Keep in mind this book is about Lord John and his military career and Jamie is a small part of it. It does give a little more insight into their relationship where the others do not.

Too soppy

The first half of this book was full of dreadful soppy romanticism that intefered with the plot. Of course this is just my opinion, and I presume Gabaldon generally writes such romances, but I was expecting more mystery and less lovey-dovey!

Oh Lord John, your such a dandy.

I am reading this series as a continuation from the outlander series and so far I have not been disappointed. The series is not as riveting as outlander etc, however still very entertaining. I just love the way Diana writes and I especially liked the creative development of the charactor Lord John. Witty, outlandish use of adjectives, risky and humorous.
Would I read another in the series?..yes.
Did I start reading it only because of the Scottish highlander?...yes.
Would I recommend it as a independent read?...no

Even better the second time around

LJG is such a great character. Diana Gabaldon such a wonderful weaver of tales and the narrator brings it all to life with his telling of the tale. Addictive
