Product Description

Review

Capturing the lonely, tormented and courageous career of a man who fights for his crown, his honour and his own secrets, Gabaldon delivers breathtaking human drama, proving once again that she can bring history to life in a way few novelists ever have. SHEFFIELD STAR --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

Format: Hardcover
While Diana is, as ever, a master of description, this book was a hot mess. Disjointed and confusing, it was not what the title promised but another boring Lord John military mystery plunked between a couple rough and sketchy Jamie chapters. I'm no prude, but the opening came off not as the bold and risque move she seems to think it was, but rather just plain TMI gross. I could never warm up to Lord John's family and friends for some reason, and can't this time either. I could have cared less about the plot, and what could have been a deep and meaningful interaction between Lord John and Jamie just didn't happen. They hardly seemed to notice each other and Jamie seemed to have zero to do with the Lord John mystery, except as an excuse to draw us in with the title. I actually left this book sitting on the shelf for half a year without finishing it, which is unheard of as I am a big Gabaldon fan. The concept of a book soley dwelling on the two protagonists was excellent, but didn't deliver. I'm sorry to say that about Gabaldon, but the fact that I wasn't even interested enough to finish the thing says a lot. She lately seems to be sacrificing character and content for her much-lauded descriptive skills (i.e, endless portrayals of people and events that seem to have no real depth or necessary relation to the main characters), and this book was no exception.

Are we supposed to go back in time, with flimsy references to events now over twenty five years old? (as per the main series). It's a bit much to expect from Gabaldon. She explains that VOYAGER is the time frame for this story, or 1760. Do I have to go get that book to refresh my memory?

CANADA did not exist as a country in 1760, the British military conflicts before this date and soon after were with ACADIA and NOUVELLE FRANCE.

There are many typos and words that were mistakenly used in many paragraphs, the editing was obviously automated and nobody actually read this book before publication.

Another effort from the publisher and author to fill the long void between the main series next publication with Lord John foolishness. Raking in more income while we wait...and wait. So happy for them :(

Great form and contents. Undeniably another masterpiece by Diana Gabaldon. I recommend it very warmly. Excellent quality-price ratio through amazon.ca. Enjoyed very much reading this latest novel.

Format: Hardcover
Her writing and characters are so multi-dimensional, you can literally feel yourself in the room experiencing their lives and conversations! Gabaldon is a master at creating mood through description as well as conversation. This book really does well to tide a person over in between her last Outlander novel, Echo in the Bone, and her next one, Written in My Own Heart's Blood.

I have found Gabaldon's stories to be a bit lacking in the later books. But when she does novellas filling in the gaps, her genius again shines. This was such a book and I was impressed she managed to pull a story out of the Helwater years again. Jaime is probably her most sympathetic character and she does him justice here quite well. Loved the intrigue of the Irish angle coming in and Jaime's scenes with his son. Good one.

I quite enjoyed this book, although I'll admit to being a sucker for all things Outlander. I agree with some other reviewers that there was a bit more of Jamie than I'd expected, but it was a good mystery nonetheless, and I'm always interested to see Lord John's perspective on things!
