Like many other "Outlander" fans, I've been reluctant to even attempt to read this second Gabaldon series which centers on a secondary gay character first introduced in "Dragonfly in Amber." I was discouraged not only by the average Goodreads rating of 3.35, but by the sheer memory of THE homosexual Leggi tutto
I resisted reading any Lord John stories for a very long time, despite being a huge Gabaldon fan. I just couldn't get behind a gay lead, didn't understand the appeal or potential of this character.

The Lord John Grey series is a spin-off of Outlander, following Lord John Grey, a characte Leggi tutto
Very quickly: this was a good book (kind of?), but booooring . I like the writing and the research is incredibly well done, with no historical info dumping, but there was one issue that I just could not get past. I read books for the plot, obviously, but just as much, if not more, for the characters. H Leggi tutto

The Lord John books are a spin-off from the Outlander series and, based purely on this one, I'm pretty sure I'm going to enjoy them more than I'm enjoying the parent series.

Weer een zeer goed en spannend boek over Lord John Grey. De auteur heeft zeer goede research gedaan, wat vooral naar boven komt (naar mijn mening) in de details over de kleding, het voedsel, de gewoontes en taboes van die tijd, en de beschrijvingen van de gebouwen en straten en stegen, en van de ber Leggi tutto
