Update: Diana said today that the two new novellas will eventually be sold as stand alone books.
Having read most of the novellas in other collections, I'll focus on one of the new stories that was a stand out for me - "A Fugitive Green." Like most of the secondary characters in this fictionverse, His Grace the Duke of Pardloe/Harold Grey is a standout, as is his wife, Her Grace Minerva Wattiswade Grey. Their dynamic in the Lord John series has long delighted me, and the tantalizing tale of the "union" that led to their marriage mentioned in "The Scottish Prisoner" left me wanting to know more. Thankfully, that story beautifully unfolds in the novella in which a young Minnie arrives in London on a mission to gather intelligence for her father. She takes a few detours, including a side job to unravel the mystery surrounding one of many scandals plaguing His Grace - namely the duel that caused the death of fellow peer Nathaniel Twelvetrees at the hands of the Duke. When Minerva accidentally encounters Hal and catches a glimpse of the man behind the title and scandal, she develops a personal interest in the case. But will the information she uncovers help or hurt the Duke, and will she trade honor for coin by selling the information to Twelvetrees' brother?
Minnie is a complex character and more than a match for the temperamental and mercurial Duke. And her other adventures in London range from comical (sparring with Harry Quarry, working with the ever crafty and entertaining O'Higgins twins) to heartbreaking (searching for the mother she never knew). This companion piece is a delightful addition to the captivating world built by Diana Gabaldon. Highly recommend!
Also, learning a bit about Roger's parents leads one to believe Diana could do a whole new series with them, more time travel, and interesting new adventures!
If you like the Outlander books and the characters within, then I would definitely recommend this book of novellas, especially if you are like me, waiting for book 9, but wanting to read MORE of anything related to these wonderful characters you've come to love.
This book was well written! DG is one of my very favorite authors! I love the Outlander books most of all! I know of many fans who love LJG and reallly love these books! As I said, they are very well written with rich characters and storylines!
