Lord John and the Brotherhood of the Blade is a stand alone novel in its own right, but anyone who has read/listened to the Outlander series will find that this book adds depth to those stories. In fact as soon as I had finished this book I found I had to re-read Voyager because all of a sudden so much of it made sense.
Lord John is one of my favourite characters and in this book we learn more of his wit, humanity, sensitivity and generally courageous character. Yes I know as others have said there are some very tender and extremely steamy moments - but that is part of the life and character of Lord John.
I guess the only problem I had was hearing Lord John's voice as read by Jeff Woodman. I am so used to hearing Davina Porter's 'Lord John' that it took me a little while to get used to the change.
I adore this narrator! His accents are great, and his reading style, enunciation and pace are all a clear 5 stars.
Avid reader and audiobook listener; I love paranormal lit, mysteries, historical fiction, romance, Brit-crime novels and thrillers.
Why not get a narrator that can do a decent Scottish accent? I have no other complaints about his reading or his portrayal of Lord John, but Jeff Woodman's clumsy attempts to voice Jamie Fraser (and the other Scottish characters) were extremely distracting (I sincerely hope he doesn't narrate "Lord John and the Scottish Prisoner" which I understand has MUCH Scottish dialog since Jamie is a main character in that much anticipated release). I am a huge fan of the "Outlander" series of which the "Lord John" series is a spin-off. IMHO, this is the best book in the "Lord John" series so far. All of the books are good, but should definitely be for adults only since they deal with M/M relationships (Lord John Gray is homosexual). If you like a good mystery and are a fan of historical fiction you may like this series.
As a long time audible customer who can remember the first servers and the need to download small parts of books to a small pre mp3 player I am really embarrassed.
I got my wife a zen and logged her into my account so she could download a title for her own enjoyment.
The male to male sex really upset her.
She read the audible posted information and thought she was getting a romance historical title.
oppppppppps that is not what it is
I did not think to tell her to read some reviews. She listened to the sample audio and bought the book.
Audible needs a better book description or rate the title.
This is a xxxxxx title and should be described as such.
I read so I can write
This is a pitiful attempt to sell books to people who like the Outlander series
It was just back story
