Lord John and the Brotherhood of the BladeAnd the Kindle #213 The breathtaking new novel from Top Ten Sunday Times bestselling author Diana GabaldonIt's and Europe is in turmoil the Seven Years War is taking hold and London is ripe with deceit The enigmatic Lord John Grey a nobleman and high ranking officer in His Majesty's Army John and the Brotherhood of PDF or pursues a clandestine love affair and a deadly family Lord John PDFEPUB or I still don't understand why Gabaldon's Lord John books are not popular than they are Is the gayness of the main character really such a huge turn off Because I can't find any other reason to dislike these books To me Lord John and the Brotherhood of the Blade is another great historical novel full of subtle wit and humor details of 18th century London society and entertaining descriptions of military living during the Seven Year War along with a nice mystery this time directly involving Lord John's familyIt should be noted however that Gabaldon turns the gay sexy up here a notch There are some man on man scenes fairly explicit IMO with generous use of words like prick and arse I don't think I enjoyed these scenes too much but I have to admit some of my curiosity was satisfied I only hope I got the logistics right it can be confusing when two he's are involved in the matter But I digress Aside from that I've learned many other curious things about the period there were actually chamber pots located right in the dining rooms just hidden my screens and they were used during parties ; officers used to sleep with curling papers in their hair even during war time; the ratio of gay to straight men was uite high based on Lord John's experiences Who would have thoughtBut joking aside I really enjoyed this book maybe not as much as the first Lord John novel and will definitely read future Lord John stories Gabaldon is definitely a special writerPS I partially listened to this book and the narrator is greatReading challenge #21
