TITLE: 'The Scottish Prisoner' Lord John Grey #3
AUTHOR: Diana Gabaldon
RELEASE DATE: October 25th 2012
I am a HUGE Diana Gabaldon fan. I adore all things 'Outlander' but like many fans I have a love/hate relationship with Gabaldon's mega-meticulous novels. On the one hand, I love that when a new 'Outlander' book comes out, we have 500+ pages to get lost in. On the down-side ... it's a 4-5 year wait between books. I am at the point now where 'An Echo in the Bone' feels too long ago and I NEED Jamie and Claire to come back into my life.
Which is why I am thrilled for Gabaldon's third 'Lord John Grey' book, 'The Scottish Prisoner'. Mostly because, as the title suggests, Jamie Fraser will be making a major cameo in this book. And tensions between him and John are likely to rise, as Gabaldon's sneak-peeks have suggested. I know that 'Scottish Prisoner' is way out of the current 'Outlander' series timeline (sitting somewhere in 'Voyager', I think?) but I like that Jamie's relationship with his illegitimate baby son, William, will likely be a focus. I think this will actually be a real cohesion between 'Echo', since in that book William's paternity became a focus...
I would read Diana Gabaldon's shopping list, if she'd let me. So I am beyond thrilled for 'The Scottish Prisoner' - bring on more Jamie, baby!
