Summary:

In this highly-anticipated new novel, Diana Gabaldon brings back one of her most compelling characters: the unforgettable Lord John Grey - soldier, gentleman, and no mean hand with a blade. Set in the heart of the eighteenth century, Lord John's world is one of mystery and menace. Diana Gabaldon brilliantly weaves together the strands of Lord John's secret and public lives. Capturing the lonely, tormented, and courageous career of a man who fights for his crown, his honor, and his own secrets, Diana Gabaldon delivers breathtaking human drama, proving once again that she can bring history to life in a way few novelists ever have.

    I'm finding it's more fun and it's someone detaining to listen to it instead of watching it on TV I love this set Outlanders rule

    This is such a great story! Watching Outlander on TV, then reading the books, now listening to the autio books... I am so happy that I took a chance on a spin off story. Highly enjoyable!!! 5 STARS ACROSS THE BOARD!

    MUCH BETTER than others have described! It’s honestly one of my favorite spin-off novels from the main Outlander series! Upon seeing some of the reviews, I was worried that I wouldn’t enjoy this, but it’s seriously SO DANG GOOD! Couldn’t stop listening! And to all the people who claimed that the narrators made Jamie “Irish” it’s simply not true! There ARE some Irish characters in this novel because Jamie and Lord John go to Ireland, but I can CLEARLY tell when an Irish character is speaking, when Jamie as a Scot is speaking, and British accents like Lord John. Sometimes the difference between Irish and Scots is slight, but it IS there! I had no difficulty telling the characters apart, and it didn’t take away from the story at all (which is delightful, btw!) Of course, I will forever love Davi a Porter’s version of Jamie the best, because she’s been in my ear for all of the main Outlander novels and is EXCELLENT at making characters come to life, but these narrators certainly held their own and deserve credit! The only thing I did find a little confusing was having two narrators instead of just one. Maybe listeners would have been less confused if there had only been one narrator. Regardless, this was HIGHLY ENJOYABLE and filled in some fascinating gaps to compliment the main Outlander novels!

    Book was great, Jamie’s accent was Irish - yet he is a Scott. Disappointing

  • Carol M

    The story is interesting although it lacks the depth of the original Outlander series. The narrator really detracts from my enjoyment of the story. Agree with the previous reviews of the narrator

  • Elizabeth S

    I absolutely love the characters in the Outlander and Lord John series. This book was interesting and I went through it quickly. But, I agree with the other individuals that left their reviews regarding the narrator. Davina Porter is far superior. And, while I did like Jeff Woodman's narrative parts, I did not enjoy the other gentlemen's.

    Great book, as always Diana Gabaldon. I thought the narrator was average, he didn't do Jamie's scottish accent very well at all. He made him sound irish. Davina Porter was by far a better narrator.

  • Rachel Oliver

    I love this series but the narrator wasn't as good as the narrator who does the outlander series proper (Davian Porter). At some stages I'm sure he even got the accents and voices mixed up with the wrong characters.

  • Sussan Carlson

    I love the Outlander series but I have to agree the narrators lacked something. After listening to the Outlander series, narrated by Davina Porter, I found the narrators to lack the ease of the characters, especially Jamie's. I felt the narrator lack enthusiasm. Anyway, the story was great a great way to see what Jamie went through at Helwater. S. Carlson
