The Lord John series is a sequence of historical mystery novels and shorter works written by Diana Gabaldon that center on Lord John Grey, a recurring secondary character in the author's Outlander series. Secretly homosexual "in a time when that particular predilection could get one hanged," the character has been called "one of the most complex and interesting" of the hundreds of characters in Gabaldon's Outlander novels.

Author(s): Diana Gabaldon. Title: The Scottish Prisoner: A Novel (Lord John). Rare references to Claire are where they belong, as this book is about how Jamie and Lord John develop their friendship outside the prison of Ardsmuir. The book stands well alone, but I have read each of the series, so seeing the characters referenced in the Jamie/ Claire novels in their own lifestyles was a delight.

Diana Gabaldon is the New York Times bestselling author of the wildly popular Outlander novels-Outlander, Dragonfly in Amber, Voyager, Drums of Autumn, The Fiery Cross, A Breath of Snow and Ashes (for which she won a Quill Award and the Corine International Book Prize), An Echo in the Bone, and Written in My Own Heart’s Blood-as well.

I'm not a huge fan of Lord John. In fact, his increased participation in the latest novels, along with William the Whiner, has somewhat lessened my enjoyment of them. However, this book strikes just the right balance with him if all you're interested in is a new Outlander book to help you through the mid-novel drought.
Because, in many ways, this is what we have here - another Outlander novel, and a good one at that. In feeling, it's very reminiscent of Voyager, during the period of which it takes place. Finishing it actually led me to pick up Voyager again, partly to reorient myself vis-a-vis the storyline, but also because it just felt like the same book.
I'm not a reader of the John's series, so I can't tell you if you should buy this for him. But I can tell you that if you were looking for Outlander, when you've run out of Outlander, look no further. Here's a whole new novel for you. A bit short, yeah, but new, good, and very satisfying.

I did love it...was in a near panic attack after finishing the last Outlander book... and there wont be another for several years....so having a little more with this book and some of the novellas, was just what I needed to ease out and land lightly into a world without Outlander. I would give 4 3/4 stars if possible, but it won't let you. The reason for less than five...it's just not the same without Claire. Also the ending, I was expecting more, but it is very hard to end books I know! Gabaldon is always great though. Taking a little break from Lord John Grey and reading something else, but will pick it up again and read the rest of them, while eagerly awaiting Outlander Book 9!

ABSOLUTLY AMAZING STORY!! I could barely put this book down. It is a Stand Alone in the LJG series but if you have read The Outlander series it will fill in a lot of gaps of the Storylines or characters that were left hanging. Plus I got my Jamie Fraser Fix. I Love the thought of Jamie Fraser and I hope there is someone out there in the real world like him!! I have No idea why it took me so long to read The Scottish Prisoner. I had read all the Outlander Books many years past and many times but this was my first LJG series book and I loved it. I didn't even miss Claire!! The story is about the life of LJG and the Life of Jamie Fraser after he was sent to Helwater and his day to day life with his son William/ Willie the very young Earl of Elsmere it was just endearing!! I Loved it. Its a Keeper for future re reads. I Highly Recommend The Scottish Prisoner for you reading Enjoyment!!

I fell in love with Lord John when he was Warden in the prison at Ardsmuir. He demonstrated a keen sense of humour as well as intelligence at least equal to Jamie's. This book goes between the pages of Voyager and provides the reader with more of who Lord John is, and his deep, abiding love and friendship for Jamie. Certainly a must read!

FINAL DECISION: More Jamie than Lord John, this story is a type of buddy book with John and Jamie having to work together to solve a mystery involving a possible Jacobite group. I loved seeing Jamie for an extended period even though my heart hurt for him missing Claire.

THE STORY: This book takes place in the time period covered by VOYAGER (and there are spoilers). Here Lord John Grey finds himself the recipient of a mysterious message written in the Scottish language. He reluctantly realizes that Jamie might be able to translate the message. (The two have had a serious falling out during an earlier Lord John story.) Jamie is suffering from the loss of Claire but watching over his illegitimate and unacknowledged son. But he is also approached with echoes from the past by Irish remnants of the Rising. These events send Jamie and John Grey on an adventure to discover the truth of what is happening.

OPINION: This is my favorite of the Lord John series, but it feels closest to Outlander because of Jamie's presence. But the reason that I like this as a Lord John book is because Lord John is best when he is interacting with Jamie and not just thinking about him.

This book definitely takes it shape from the Lord John Grey series. It is a mystery that John goes to investigate. Here, because Jamie is such a central character, we get more of the interaction between John and Jamie. Their relationship is strained but this book is part of their journey to becoming friends again -- and this time a more honest friendship.

I really enjoyed the story which was political drama, a roadtrip adventure, historical download and a story of unrequited love all in one. I also enjoyed getting to see more of John's brother and sister in law (a couple I enjoyed in their own story).

This book enhanced my Outlander understanding and also managed to be the best example of the Lord John books.

WORTH MENTIONING: This novel is told by alternating Jamie's story and Lord John's story as the stories overlap. It takes place in the space of when Jamie and Claire are apart VOYAGER.

CONNECTED BOOKS: THE SCOTTISH PRISONER is the third book in the Lord John Grey series. This series is a spinoff of the Outlander series. While it is not necessary to have read the other books in the Lord John Grey series to read this book, I believe it is necessary to read VOYAGER to appreciate this book.

STAR RATING: I give this book 4 stars.

Did not disappoint. I loved combining Lord John and Jamie and it filled in some of the time when he was at Hellwater. I admit I read this book first without reading the other Lord John novella's and works because it did contain Jamie too and I time I wanted to hear more about. It can stand alone without the others, but it may give away some spoilers for the prior works. Still, since I've read all eight Outlander books, I don't consider that a huge problem. I really like Lord John and his family which are heavily involved in the Outlander book 8. I also liked that this was more a normal size novel. Long enough for several good twists and turns, but not a marathon read.
