Publisher's Summary

In this tale of adventure, murder, snakes, revenge, and zombies, the Royal Governor of Jamaica sends an S.O.S. to London, asking urgently for help in putting down a burgeoning slave rebellion. London replies by sending Lieutenant-Colonel Lord John Grey, with half a battalion of infantry, a company of artillery, and his trusty valet, Tom Byrd.

    Story
    "Interesting story very different"
    What did you like best about Lord John and the Plague of Zombies? What did you like least?

    It was not what I was expecting from Diana Gabaldon, It had the horror paranormal quirkiness. If You're not into zombies, and para-normal you won't like this story. I have enjoyed all of the "Highlander" and "Lord John" series....This is just very different and has is not for everyone who likes Ms Gabaldon's books


    What did you like best about this story?

    It showed that Ms Gabaldon can stretch her writing to go to the bizarre. I found it really interesting, also how Lord John handled himself under very stressful situations.


    What does Jeff Woodman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I think he did the narration very well the accents of the Jamaicans, British, and Scots were done very well. He was also able to express emotion in his voice which is important.


    Was Lord John and the Plague of Zombies worth the listening time?

    I enjoyed it because I enjoy paranormal, horror, vampire, zombie, werewolf, etc type stories. I love Jim Butcher, Simon Green, C. Harris, etc. great writers of paranormal fantasy.


    Any additional comments?

    If you're looking for the dashing romantic Lord John he's still the man but in a very difficult circumstance, and there is sexual innuendo, but not the romantic trysts of other stories. He has a mission to get a problem solved in Jamaica. Solve a murder, and get his soldiers back, from a group who they think are making zombies. There is a twist here and the ultimate bottom line is the British were the ones doing wrong. If you don't like para-normal stay away from this one. otherwise give it a try.

    Story
    "These are not the Zombies you are looking for."

    HER TOUCH LINGERED A LITTLE TOO LONG
    HER HAND WAS WARM
    SHE LOOKED TO SEE IF SHE HAD SHOCKED HIM AGAIN
    D.G. is a fine writer, but if your looking for Zombie thrills, this is not the right place. In the first hour and a half only one Zombie appears and he is not a real Zombie. Sticking to historical fact, Gabaldon points out that through drugs the witch doctors, make people believe they are zombies.

    AWARE OF HOW FAST GOSSIP SPREADS IN A RURAL AREA
    Gabaldon fans should enjoy this, as it is distinctly her writing, but thrill seekers would be disappointed.

    HE KNEW WHAT A GRAVE SMELLED LIKE AND ROTTING FLESH

    "I only wish it were longer"

    Another great Lord John book. Interesting, humorous, and fast-paced, the novellas about Lord John are always a treat. L.J. has become one of my favorite characters. I look forward to more!

    "muntu -The religion-Zombies"

    this book held an accuracy of the Ancient African religion of Muntu. I have studied this with much interest and accuracy. I am pleased that Diana c. Upheld her research for such accuracy. again sad to say I was left yearning to hear mor about "The Witch" and her do,aim on the local Natives.But that's another story. :)

    "Yeah, but not really."
    What did you love best about A Plague of Zombies?

    It was easy to follow after reading Voyager. I'm not sure how it would have felt had I read it before Voyager


    Any additional comments?

    Much better than I thought. I was about Zombies, but not really. It was LJG handling a very strange but surprisingly possible, situation.

    This story gives more information about minor characters in D. G.'s novels. It really makes those books hmore interesting.

    "Lord John"

    These books are wonderful to fill the gap between The Outlander Series... Anything by Diana Ganaldon is worth the read.
