    Story

    It is 1758, and the flames of the Seven Years' War are burning hotter than ever. The rigors and dangers of battle are actually a welcome respite for Lord John and his brother Hal, who feel the constant strain of their family's troubled history. Blending war, family secrets, and forbidden love, Gabaldon crafts a suspenseful novel that loyal fans and newcomers alike with find irresistible.

    "slight companion book to Voyager"
    Overall

    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.

    Story

    With chaos brewing, the governor calls upon Jamie Fraser to unite the backcountry and safeguard the colony for King and Crown. But from his wife, Jamie knows that three years hence the shot heard round the world will be fired, and the result will be independence, with those loyal to the King either dead or in exile. And there is also the matter of a tiny clipping from The Wilmington Gazette, dated 1776, which reports Jamie's death, along with his kin.

    "wonderful for a review of the book"

    If you have read the book and are wanting a quick review this is the way to go. If you HAVE NOT read the entire book first you will miss quite a lot and I don't suggest going this route.

    In these tales, Lord John vows to avenge a murder, investigates a terrifying "night-hag" on the battlefields of Europe, and discovers treason in His Majesty's ranks.

    Overall

    I have to put this read away. Maybe I'll continue it at a later date. Wow, my own fault for not listening to others' reviews. I couldn't believe that two book series could feel so different. I love the Outlander series and wanted to read more into the characters...even a spin off. However, I feel like I went from a big screen movie (Outlander) to a 'B' rated movie (Lord John). I don't know if it is the writing or the narrator's voice, but the feel and quality of the story is way off. And the mention of Jamie Frazer seems forced. John doesn't seem to have the same force of character, which seems strange coming from the same author. So, maybe it all has to do with the narrator. Sorry, save your credits.
