So far the weakest book in the series This book dragged on and on and on It took me about four times as long to finish this one as it did the other four There was just a lot of unnecessary drama The interesting parts were few and far between but were just enough to keep me reading And I will admit by the end I was finally engaged enough to want to read the next one so it didn't turn me off completely There were just a lot of things that didn't need to be in the book This is the first time reading the series that I've really felt a need for better editingYou will read this book because you're already deeply involved in the story and invested in the characters and there's just enough in the book to keep you but on the whole it's exhausting and a little disappointing

Oncoming revolution is a flickering torch that may light his way through the perilous years ahead or ignite a conflagration that will leave their lives in ashe. Gabaldon invests much time and descriptive effort in this novel which ties off many threads left dangling in DRUMS and introduces the reader to a plethora of new characters The novel continues where DRUMS ended at a a gathering of some of the Scottish colonial settlers Brianna and Roger are set to marry and have their son Jemmy baptised When a proclamation arrives from the Governor of North Carolina everyone is put on notice that rebellion will not be tolerated against the British King While local sheriffs wreak havoc on the matrimonial plans those within the group are able to make some alternate arrangements just as a missive arrives for Jamie The Governor has tasked him to create a militia to uell dissent in the Colony less a reuest than a directive As everyone returns to Fraser's Ridge Jamie begins making the necessary arrangements An eventual battle ensues pitting the militia against a group of Regulators bound to fight against Britain's continued rule in the area Roger becomes embroiled in events and suffers greatly for it which draws the Frasers in closer to him showing their familial strength Brianna and Roger must also struggle with everything that relates to Jemmy and their larger relationship Gabaldon shifts the romantic and relationship focus to the next generation of characters putting Brianna Roger and Stephen Bonnet into a veritable parental triangle as Roger struggles with Jemmy's potential parentage going so far as to learn a little genetics from Claire to understand implications Roger and Brianna must wrestle with much of the same issues Claire and Frank did years ago Where Gabaldon left much of the awkwardness of the Claire Frank Jamie triangle to small crumbs in VOYAGER a thorough exploration takes place herein with some interesting insight to enlighten the reader Claire's knowledge of history can be both a blessing and curse as she watches Jamie prepare for the early stages of the War of Independence sure to divide the colony and keep everyone on their toes As old enemies return to tie off their storylines from novels past and new foes begin to lay roots for long standing hatred Jamie and his family grow closer through peril and tragedy exemplifying that the family fabric can withstand much strain With ghost bears and wild boars snake bites and attempted executions war drums and Scottish folk songs the novel offers many a vignette to educate and entertain Told in a way only Gabaldon could the reader is in for a long and twisted story but never left to drift too far off the beaten pathSome have commented that this book was a turning point in the Outlander series as it dragged on and began to derail the built momentum To those readers I would acknowledge the freedom of expression but also remind this posse that this is not a series for the feint of heart or easily bored Much of Gabaldon's content does play a key role in later missives as the reader will have discovered in this novel While seemingly minor topics appear in the narrative they become central with the reemergence of characters or new spins on their placement in the larger narrative There were sections of the book that did take up much space and might have been trimmed or edited out but something tells me there is a reason for their inclusion and the reader can skim all they like hoping a re read is not necessary at a later point That said this being a re read for me I took away so much than I had the first time around The story's underlying history begins its necessary heating up and will only get stronger and interesting as the series progresses Gabaldon like perhaps George RR Martin can see the mighty forest for the acorns currently scattered on the ground and for that we owe her the true benefit of the doubt She's shown that she is in control and trust has long since been earnedKudos Madam Gabaldon for pressing on with your longest novel to date Its content though dense for some proves highly attractive for the Outlander obsessed Likehate the review An ever growing collection of others appears at

And so book 5 comes to an end I started reading this series on June 16th and they have consumed me for all of my summer holidays I swore I would take a break after each one but could not They are long they are detailed all the names get a little confusing sometimes I suppose I myself could be accused of jumping on the bandwagon what with the TV series airing last night in the USA Maybe so but as I have had the books on my kindle and some of them in paperback for some time now certainly before the glorious casting of Jamie Fraser I feel I can join the legion of true fans those of you who started reading this series when it was first released many moons agoTo be honest I am not sure where the last book finished and this one started All I knew is that I wanted to read about Jamie and Claire and their journey in the New World ”Let the dead bury the dead Sassenach” he said softly “The past is gone the future is not come And we are here together you and I I was lucky enough to see the first episode of the TV series and it was wonderful I thought it stayed verra true to the book and I am sure that is what Ms Gabaldon and the fans wanted Jamie is perfect He is soooo romantic He is tough too but he has a heart of gold “D'ye ken that the only time I am without pain is in your bed Sassenach When I take ye when I lie in your arms my wounds are healed then my scars forgotten” We did not study a lot of American History in school We did learn about the obvious major historical moments The American Revolution the Colonial period och aye anything where the British are trying to take over us Irish are verra interested I do like history and am very proud that my son is starting his first year in University IN SCOTLAND to study history I think this book was over a two or three year time spam I sort of know because Jamie was the same age as me when the book started and he did then turn 50 Even a fifty year old Jamie is a fine figure of a man “You are beautiful” he whispered to me“If you say so” “Do ye not believe me Have I ever lied to you” “That’s not what I mean I mean—if you say it then it’s true You make it true” But this was not just Jamie and Claire’s journey We had Roger and Brianna I love Roger What the poor man had to go through Bloody hell I nearly gave up at one stage when one part was happeningROGERBRIANNAThere is still a lot to happen in this adventureThat ballocks Stephen Bonnet is still out there or is he God I hate that bastard He would have to be Irish wouldn’t he Here is who I imagine the toad would look like I will have the Gandy Police on my case now Och bring it on I have Jamie on my side ”There may be a day when you and I shall part again” he said softly at last and his fingers brushed my lips light as the touch of a falling leaf He smiled faintly “But it willna be today Off to find my next read It will be a hard act to follow this oneAnd how could we forget wee Jemmy
