As a stand alone story, there's not enough info to understand exactly what's going on. But it does give an interesting view of Jamie and Ian before they were who they were in Outlander. ( )

One can never get enough of Jamie Fraser. There will never be enough books of him.

I will always buy and get whatever related to Jamie Fraser or the Outlander series. I'm just addicted and extremely LOYAL ( )

I loved the story about Jamie before Claire came along, with his friend Ian as two young men basically on an adventure as paid soldiers escorting a beautiful Jewish girl and an extremely valuable Torah to her new husband, but obviously nothing goes to plan!
I was really a bit peeved though when I got to the end of the story less than half the way to the end of the book, to find that the rest of the book is the first few chapters of Outlander (or Cross stitch as it is called here in UK) As I have this book in paperback AND on Kindle, both paid for I think it a bit of a swizz to pay 7.99 for half a book!!

This novella, set prior to [Outlander] follows Jamie and Ian as they pursue their careers as mercenaries in France and the mishaps that ensue when they're assigned to guard a beautiful young Jewish woman as she travels to wed her fiance. I'd recommend reading this one after [Outlander] because while it doesn't have spoilers exactly, it will spoil the emotional impact of some of the reveals in that first novel. For example, because it takes place right after Jamie's escape after being flogged twice, there are hints at his father's death and what happened between Jenny and Randall. A fun little read that's worth picking up for fans of the series. ( )

A nice short story about Jamie Fraser and Ian Murray's time in France prior to the events of the first Outlander novel. Jamie is fresh out of his time in prison, and struggling to come to terms with what he left behind in Scotland. Joining a band of mercentaries, they find themselves assigned to escort a young Jewish bride to her betrothed and to safeguard her dowry along the way. Events unfold to reveil not everything is as it appears and makes for a good, short tale. Definitely for fans of the Outlander series. ( )
