I found the story far too confusing; I only finished it last night but, apart from the basics, I really couldn’t tell you what it was about. The author likes to use a lot of words, and sometimes I totally lose track of what she’s trying to say; also we had far too many pages filled with John & Percy gazing at each other etc etc etc. We've all got the picture about Lord John’s sexual preference - but I didn’t buy the book to read all about their passionate encounters; I wanted the back story on the Jacobite traitors and the late Duke of Pardloe, but the majority of the book seemed to be the live story of Percy & John!
We’re all eagerly awaiting the next instalment of Jamie & Claire’s story, but I guess these books are quicker to push out (less research?) therefore money coming in. I’m afraid I won’t be wasting anymore money on these books though.
One more thing ..... I know Ms Gabaldon is American but there were quite a few ‘americanisms’ in the book, and these don’t seem appropriate when writing about 18th century England (example: the porch area of a London house is described as a ‘stoop’)?
The action mainly takes place in London and Prussia but we do get to visit Helwater and Jamie. Two of my other favourite characters, Stephan and Harry Quarry appear too. There's a very emotional revelation about John's father's apparent suicide. Plus a mystery relating to some pages of his father's diary which are being delivered to Hal and their mother.
It's a very enjoyable read and helps to fill in details of everyone's lives during the period of Claire's return to the 20th Century.
