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.

A believable hero with a hidden core...

As a fan of Diana Gabaldon's 'Outlander' series I was ready to enjoy this book and was not disappointed. Lord John is a believable character set in the 1700's and is backed up with lots of historical detail and an engrossing storyline. Am looking forward to the next instalment.

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

Rivetting and Heart wrenching

I love John Grey’s stories. This is the best yet! His humor, authenticity and logic are equal to the depth of his love and honour! It’s wonderful to have so much more insight into his brother Hal too. And to meet the younger Percy! A wonderful story that adds layers to the outlander characters. Wonderfully read by Woodman!
