Book 4 of the Outlander series, and I'm still surprised at how much I'm enjoying the books.
This one has the all requisite breathless sex scenes aimed at some readership other than me, but continuies to have great writing, a plot to keep the reader engaged, and characters that are larger than life, but believable enough to win me over.
The sphere of action has moved from Scotland to the US, and the style is now more period-fiction than historic-fiction. I personally miss the Scottish connection, but I'm still enjoying the ride.
The time travel element plays a more significant part in this plot, which suits my preferences. There are lots of implausabilities, but you can't write time travel without them.
The book was long - 1300 pages or so (1700 on my e-reader). I need to take a rest break from Gabaldon and Outlander, but I'm pretty sure I'll be back for more. ( )

"Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof"

A marvellous read. I like the books more than the TV version of this story, and I think this is the best book yet.

If you've read the first three volumes you need to read this one, and if you haven't you should believe the hype and go check out the first book now.

"like a Clydesdale stallion in a field of frogs" ( )

I've read half of this and at some point need to finish the whole thing.

Outlander saga of Jamie and Claire Fraser and their friends/family continues, this time pre-revolutionary period in North Carolina. Historical fiction mixed with fantasy/romance. ( )

I think I read all of these in a rush around 1999 or 2000 when "The Fiery Cross" was written. As per usual, the first book was the best of them. ( )

Dedication
This book turned out to have a lot to do with fathers, and so it's for my own father, Tony Gabaldon, who also tells stories.
