The Exile by Diana Gabaldon

The Exile retells the original Outlander novel from Jamie Fraser's point of view, revealing events never seen in the original story and giving readers a whole new insight into the Jamie-Claire relationship. Jamie's surreptitious arrival in Scotland at the beginning of the tale, his feelings about Claire, and much more — up to the point where Claire faces trial for witchcraft and must choose whether to return to her own century — are brought to life in brilliant four-colour art. A must-read — and a great holiday gift — for any Outlander fan!

This was okaaaay, I suppose. I had been looking forward to getting it SO much but then when it arrived I was a bit disappointed.

I knew what to expect format wise as I have read and enjoyed graphic novels before. I thought the art work was gorgeous (even if Claire’s hands looked freakishly scary at some points).

But it  was the dialogue that threw me. This is meant to overlap with buts of Outlander and it does, but the dialogue from the same scenes doesn’t match up in Exile…

But, despite that, it was enjoyable.

And, this just made me fall in love with Murtagh even more.

Although the artist’s interpretation so of the characters didn’t really match up with how I imagined them (I imagined Dougal to be a bit rougher looking) I can live with it.

I would love to see more of the story told in this format.
