W a legacy of blood and desire will test her beautiful copper haired daughter Brianna as Claire's spellbinding journey of self discovery continues in the intrigue ridden Paris court of Charles Stuart in a race to thwart a doomed Highlands uprising and in a desperate fight to save both the child and the man she love. 45 stars right off the top I got hooked on the Outlander series last year when I read the first book in this series by Diana Gabaldon I knew I wanted to try another one and now that I've devoured the second novel Dragonfly in Amber in this historical fiction and fantasy series I have added the rest and even started watching the television drama I'm a major fan especially because followers on my blog selected this as my 'Book Bucket List' read for May 2018 I'm so glad they pushed me to take on this 950 behemoth despite everything else on my TBR Now I'm trying to add in the next one in June and to think these were written nearly 30 years ago in the early 1990sWhere do I begin My normal review format won't do as I really just want to gush about the book as my friend Noriko would say Yes there's the time travel the Scottish setting and Jamie Claire but it's so much The sheer brilliance in the relationships complexities in the plot and historical facts and embellishments in a good way is phenomenal It's like I'm absorbed into a life I wish I could live for a few hours no different than when I read Lord of the Rings Harry Potter or Pillars of the Earth I adore these giant tomes because of the author's ability to build realistic worlds with just a touch of disbelief to give me something to deeply ponderGabaldon's attention to details is uite strong I'm a history buff and love learning about new characters then looking up to see if they're based on real people All the clans of Scotland shine through I was especially pleased when they visited the Kilmarnock villages as my ancestors lived there in the early 1800s before emigrating to America I can't wait to visit the town to see how it compares to the novel family stories and everything in between This is a true genealogy lover's book because it combines all the analytical and historical aspects of discovering your past and your supposed family Then learning the wicked secrets and oh are they wickedThe only things I'd say that stopped me from giving this 5 stars fall into two categories There are some sections that are overly detailed to the point you begin skimming a paragraph here and there When that happens the action and plot usually my most important element in a book feels pushed to the side It happened once every 100 pages or so not for than a page or two but enough that maybe it needed to be a 900 page book instead of a 950 page book Ha The other area was something that felt a bit different from Outlander It's almost as if Gabaldon took a few too many pun liberties in this one covering bathing or bathroom habits all too freuently I love when it's brought up in books but it was done in a too humorous way which forced me to step out of the book instead of stay connected to true 18th century life Even in the 1940s which is where Claire is from before she time travels they still lacked some of the things we consider necessary today I like when it's brought up once or twice but not for pages where she laughs about it and then says but it is what it is essentiallyAll that said the plot is smart and charming The introduction of a good side to one of the formerly bad characters is interesting but I know it's long from over The travel between France and Scotland is compelling I just finished Follett's Column of Fire and saw a strong and tight connection here If you love a touch of fantasy and historical fiction and don't mind strong sexual content then you need to give this a chance even if the entire series is around 8k pages at this point I'll be in a book daze all week long so I'm gonna have to select something very different to draw me out of it Thanks for picking this book This Is My Truth Now voters New poll to be setup today for June's Book Bucket List read

Summary ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ´ Diana Gabaldon

Dragonfly in AmberFrom the author of Outlander a magnificent epic that once again sweeps us back in time to the drama and passion of th century ScotlandFor twenty years Claire Randall has kept her secrets But now she is returning with her grown daughter to Scotland's majestic mist shrouded hills Here Claire plans to reveal a truth a. Gabaldon's sex ridden hugely researched academically adventurous time travelsci fi meets historical romance novels ualify as trash novels for lit nerds they're absolutely a guilty pleasure From clan warfare to herbal medicine to genealogy to British history to WWII the books are packed with information what little Gaelic I know started with these books Bonus the heroine gets to have many many rolls in the hay with a handsome hard bodied Highlander Can't really go wrongThe books were recommended to me while I was living in England and a lucky thing too because had I taken one look at the Fabio in a kilt of passion American paperback cover I would have refused to read it note the British version was called Cross Stitch and the cover had a less than sexy field of heather on it For a while I was caught up on the series but I lost interest once the Frasers headed to AmericaThey are long books but the pages turn uickly Gabaldon has a way with characters and her prose flows along at an engaging clip Oh but if you get all sueamish about buggery don't bother the negative reviews of these books always focus prudishly and tediously on one specific encounter in an otherwise pretty rampantly heterosexual landscape
