NOW THE STARZ ORIGINAL SERIES OUTLANDER

In this rich, vibrant tale, Diana Gabaldon continues the story of Claire Randall and Jamie Fraser that began with the now-classic novel Outlander and continued inDragonfly in Amber. Sweeping us from the battlefields of eighteenth-century Scotland to the exotic West Indies, Diana Gabaldon weaves magic once again in an exhilarating and utterly unforgettable novel.

VOYAGER

Their passionate encounter happened long ago by whatever measurement Claire Randall took. Two decades before, she had traveled back in time and into the arms of a gallant eighteenth-century Scot named Jamie Fraser. Then she returned to her own century to bear his child, believing him dead in the tragic battle of Culloden. Yet his memory has never lessened its hold on her . . . and her body still cries out for him in her dreams.

Then Claire discovers that Jamie survived. Torn between returning to him and staying with their daughter in her own era, Claire must choose her destiny. And as time and space come full circle, she must find the courage to face the passion and the pain awaiting her . . . the deadly intrigues raging in a divided Scotland . . . and the daring voyage into the dark unknown that can reunite—or forever doom—her timeless love.

Voyager is, frankly, an amazing read. An unusual mix of romance, suspense and history. . . . If you can put this huge tome down before dawn, you’re made of sterner stuff than I am.”Arizona Tribune

“Rousing . . . audacious . . . exciting . . . Gabaldon masterfully weaves . . . flashbacks . . . crossing time periods with abandon but never losing track of the story.”Locus

I'll believe that Claire can travel through time via a stone circle, but I find it implausible that Jamie is suddenly fluent in Mandarin?

Voyager is quite the exciting sequel, especially since I wasn't expecting it at all! Reunions, buried treasure, and a seafaring adventure! It picks up right where Dragonfly in Amber left off. Claire is pushed to action when she realizes that Jamie may still be alive. She doesn't know if she wants him to be or if it'll be better if he did die during the war. What follows is lots of research following possible leads, but it was never boring! The story alternates between Claire, Brianna, and Roger doing the research and Jamie actually living it! Oh, Jamie, what a busy life you've had.

I pretty much loved Voyager, despite a few troublesome scenes that I really could have done without. I loved seeing how Jamie lived over those twenty years he and Claire were separated and thought the other dead. There were moments when I was like "No, Jamie! Don't do that!" and then I felt myself getting super giddy the closer Claire got to finding him (thanks to those noooo! moments). I just needed them together! Their reunion isn't all sunshine and rainbows though. They're not the same people they were twenty years ago. Things have happened that they must work through. I was annoyed with Claire at times for being upset over some things Jamie did. I do understand her being mad that he doesn't tell her right away, but she could have handled it better, especially since she traveled through time to be with him again!

Then Voyager switches from being about the romantic reunion to more of an adventure! This was so fun! I was a bit less interested when Claire was trying to solve this medical mystery. It was actually kind of gross and I just wasn't invested, probably because I didn't care about the people involved. But it does lead to even more excitement and odd coincidences. Things do get a bit...weird in the last few chapters. *Beep* is completely off her rocker and I was like WTF is happening right now?! I really did not expect that at all, and felt like it was a bit much. Other than that though, I do think this was my favorite thus far. Now, what will Jamie and Claire do next....

It took me nearly 8 months, with many other things read along the way, but I have finally finished Voyager. It'll be a while before I take on the next book, but I have little doubt I will. This book was quite the adventure.

This book was a lot slower, and involved things that had to be there to lay the land for future books, but were not all that interesting on its own. I still love Jamie and Claire, though, and thought it was very well written.

The book starts with Claire, who’s been living in her own time the past twenty years. In the last book she met a historian who found out that Jamie didn’t die at Culloden. She’s been planning on going back for the last 5 months. Her appearance in the past tooks Jamie totally by surprise and while they learn to know each other again after twenty years apart, they have to save Jamies’s nephew (Young) Ian.

I have to say that I love these books! The book really started to come alive after Claire finds Jamie. I liked how they were showed learning to know each other again. No wonder you’d be a little akward when you haven’t seen each other in such a long time and so much has happened to them. I was getting kinda annoyed at Jenny though, why did you had to meddle in Jamie’s things?And by that I mean getting Jamie married to Laoghaire! That was the only problem I had with the book... I so wish we hear more of Fergus in the future. Poor man had a very interesting wedding... Most hilarious thing in the book :)

I have to continue giving this series an A+. This installment wasn’t quite so heartwrenching, though it did have its moments! I think this may be my favorite in the series.
