Book Review: Lord John and the Hellfire Club

Title: Lord John and the Hellfire Club

Author: Diana Gabaldon

Rating: 4 stars

 

This is a short novella introducing Lord John Grey as a main character. Lord john is first introduced in the Outlander series in Dragonfly in Amber as an impetuous teen. In Voyager Lord John ends up the eventual friend of Jamie Fraser and is an interesting character.

 

Lord John witnesses the murder of one Robert Gerald, the cousin of Grey’s friend and colleague, Harry Quarry. Grey had vowed to find the murderer, a search which brings Grey to the Hellfire Club, where he must protect his life.

 

Sometimes the story felt a little rushed and a little hard to follow but overall it was entertaining and really helped set the scene to this new series.
