The Lord John Series 4-Book Bundle Reviews

    Diana Gabaldon's writing never fails to enthral me. I enjoyed getting to know Lord John and his entourage better in these stories, having encountered them in the Outlander novels. It was a joy to get to know Tom Byrd, who is quite underplayed. And Neil Stapleton's nom de guerre is the best naming of a character I've ever come across!

    Lovely side series to get you through to the next installment of OutlanderI really enjoyed the novels in this anthology, the novellas were less entertaining but over all added some fabulous context to characters we see in the later Outlander novels. The Scottish Prisoner and The Brotherhood of the Blade get 5 stars but I'm giving the anthology 4 since I thought the novellas were a little boring.

    Couldn't finish the first book, much less the series. After reading the first "Outlander," I was curious to see what Gabaldon would do with a gay main character (especially in light of how heteronormative the Outlander books are, with gay characters being portrayed as either pedophiles, rapists, or torturers - or all three). The answer was, apparently, nothing special. The book had none of the pizzazz or excitement of the Outlander books, and minus one of two subtly suggestive scenes, it's just a boring police investigation into a murder. On a positive note, the gay main character didn't appear to be a pedophile, rapist, or torturer - but then again, I never finished the book, so who knows. Really need to find better LGBTQ romance.

    What fun. I knew there would be so much more to John, and more we got! Talk about fill in the blanks and add some flesh to this fascinating character! Although a standalone, to really appreciate the depth of John and Jamie's relationship, as well as some fascinating reading; I recommend reading this after book 8. Unless you've seen the television series, a small bit of these might be confusing, but is easily overlooked.Smart and likeable, John seems to get into as many frays and pickles as Jamie and Claire. He definitely is not a boring character, and the mysteries that follow him around like the mud on his boots; makes for a gripping read.I'm not really an ereader, but since I caved and bought one ostensibly for the kitchen, I am slowly being drawn into the ability to read books I wouldnt necessarily want on my shelves. If only because my house would turn into a library.I have purged to only the valuable first editions and sentimental to me tomes.

    This book is a compilation of The Private Matter, Brotherhood of the Blade, Hand of Devils which in itself is a compilation of Hellfire Club, Succubus and Haunted Soldier. The Scottish Prisoner is the last novel included. Unfortunately, Diana doesn't tell you which order to read them(chronologically) in until the Haunted Soldier. Though she does say it really doesn't matter as long as you've read Voyager. If you're interested it's - Hellfire, Private Matter, Succubus, Haunted Soldier and lastly Prisoner. We meet up with John's industrious valet Tom Byrd (whom I miss tremendously in the later "Big Books"), find out what happened to the now grown up Rabbie McNab, solve the mystery of LJG's father, meet the illustrious Percy Wainwright, Harry Quarry and Stephan von Namtzen, solve various murders and mysteries, follow the Twelvetrees feud and get glimpses of Jamie and William at Helwater. Oh and get acquainted with LJ's brother Hal's family Minnie and children. This book is a golden nugget that assuages any Droughtlander you may be going through.

    I gobbled up this series. I have a crush on Lord John...I know...he's gay... but his character is totally crushable. Lord John is so loyal and loving to his family and intimates, yet he can be fierce and decisive in battle. He truly is a noble soul. His feelings for Jamie, a man he understands he can never have, are touching and heart-wrenching at times. Ending the series with The Scottish Prisoner was the icing on the cake for me.

    John Grey - Gabaldon has said she knows John quite well, for he knows his weaknesses, his time he is living in, 1800's and his strengths. These stories are in between if you will of what goes on in the Outlander series with Jamie and Claire. When Grey is not in the story with Jamie these books tell us what was happening in Greys life politically, romantically, militarily. A fair bit of the super natural, which Grey with his intuition deduces facts and gets to the real happenings.

    In the name of honorLord John's sense of honor leads him into some interesting and complicated situations. All the while his own secrets are always on the verge of being exposed. The outcomes of his investigations can be messy, and at times do not end where he expects. These side stories also delve into his complicated relationship with Jamie and explain why their inter action can be mercurial in nature.

    These are excellent stories written by a master author. Who else is writing such rich stories about an honorable, intelligent, witty, just so happens to be, homosexual man? During a time when such a thing could send you to the gallows. If you read any of the Outlander books, then this is a must read.

    One of my favorites!!It really feel the pain and sadness of Jamie!! Diana does a wonderful job expressing how much Jamie still longs for Claire and how deeply he still loves her. It also gives you real insight into how Jamie was affected by Culloden and it's aftermath. I really think they should make this book I to a season of the Outlander series on Starz.

    I really liked the story lines and that it was very different than the Outlander main novels. Initially I was put off by the idea of Lord John spin offs. But they really worked well. And really add another level of depth at the same level of quality that I came to expect the from the main Outlander novels.

    I did not like the series when I first started it. Finished MOBY and decided to try again. I love Lord John and this different perspective of him. I recommend all fans of the Outlander series read this. The insight of Lord John and Hal (Duke of Pardloe & brother) is a wonderful addition to the Outlander Series.

    Better than a Private MatterI liked the friendship between men the most. As a woman it is always interesting how men deal with their friendships. As women are so skilled and complicated in their friendships, it's interesting how men react to their friendships. You can learn things about friendships.

    She did a great job of another story, using Lord John as the main character instead of Jamie or Claire. The time and place and all the other characters including the main are there.Second time through, I realized that I had read more about the Wild Hunt in other fictions. Great short stories that all blend well in the Outlander world the author has created.

    The life of a homosexual soldier was a dance with death. The Lord Grey series is another tough read because the life of the principal character is threatened constantly by his very being. I learned a lot.

    5 stars for the stories, 3 stars for the formatting as I would've preferred the stories to be put in chronological order.

    I enjoyed these stories, and found they just got better and better. A great collection of stories for long winter nights--especially if you like the Outlander series.
