Set in the intriguing Scotland of 200 years ago, the third installment in the romantic adventures of Jamie and Claire is as compelling as the first. Now that Claire knows Jamie survived the slaughter at Culloden, she is faced with the most difficult decision of her life. She aches to travel back through time again to find the love of her life, but, in order to do that, she must leave their daughter behind. It has been 20 years since she and Jamie were forced to separate. Can she risk everything, maybe even her life, on a gamble that their love has withstood the long, rigorous test of time?

Book 3

I watched the television series before reading this book and much preferred the show's treatment of Yi Tien Cho and Jamie/Geneva. These were the two main points that kept this book from being a five star for me. Aside from that, I found this to be the most exciting, fast-paced of the Outlander series thus far and loved following Jamie and Claire's adventures around the globe (and through time!).

Book 3 in the Outlander series

Apr 23, 2018

I continue to enjoy this series of books. After watching the series on TV I feel the books are better in the fact that I have missed or misread the innuendo in the shows. I look forward to the next good read.

This book was just ok to me. I like the historical aspects of this book for the most part, but the rest of it kind of fell flat. The first half of the book focuses on Claire trying to find out what happened to Jamie and if he really died at that battle. The second half of the book takes place in Scotland and on the high seas. So many things happen in this book and it never lets up. I do intend to keep reading this series. If you like action, adventure, and pirates, you might enjoy this book.

Jamie and Claire reunite twenty years after the events of Dragonfly in Amber. We learn what happened in those twenty years and read on as they voyage to many new places and see familiar faces.

"The first thing you do when I find you is faint, and as soon as I've got you back on your feet, you get me assaulted in a pub and chased through Edinburgh in company with a deviant Chinese, ending up in a brothel--whose madam seems to be on awfully familiar terms with you, I might add. You then take off your clothes, announce that you're a terrible person with a depraved past, and take me to bed. What did you expect me to think?"-Claire

"I have burned for you for twenty years, Sassenach. Do ye not know that? Jesus! But I'm no the man ye knew, twenty years past, am I? We know each other now less than we did when we wed."-Jamie

"First I'm a Sassenach, and now I'm a dogsbody. What do you Scots call people when you're trying to be nice?-Brianna

"Samhain--hallowe'en, you know?--that's one of the feasts when it was customary to try to divine the future. And one of the ways of divination was to walk to the end of the house, and then step outside with your eyes closed. The first thing you see when you open them is an omen for the near future."-Roger

"Don't worry. It doesna get any bigger. And it wilna do anything strange, if ye want to touch it."-Jamie(reassuring a lassie of his manhood)
