I thought the different narrators somewhat distracting switching back and forth with no clear reason. And I missed Davina Porter as she does such a wonderful job of bringing these tales to life.
Although I did enjoy listening to this storyline... I have to admit I missed many of the characters from previous books.... It was ok but by far not a favorite...
It was terrific to hear what happened to Jamie after he sent Claire back before the battle at Culloden.
The narration was wonderful. I grinned when I "recognized" van Namsen's voice as he entered the story.
I did not like to actor speaking Jaime's part. other than that, an enjoyable book
As with all books in this series, I loved it. Great to see more of what happened during the 20 year separation of Jamie and Claire as well as get to know Lord John even more.
The relationship between Lord John Grey and Jamie Frasier is filled in and their codes of honor examined in this Jacobite tale of intrigue.
