Product Description

THE SECOND NOVEL IN THE BESTSELLING OUTLANDER SERIES - now a major new TV series.

For twenty years Claire Randall has kept her secrets. But now she is returning with her grown daughter to the majesty of Scotland's mist-shrouded hills. Here Claire plans to reveal a truth as stunning as the events that gave it birth: about the mystery of an ancient circle of standing stones, about a love that transcends the boundaries of time, and about James Fraser, a warrior whose gallantry once drew the young Claire from the security of her century to the dangers of his.

Now a legacy of blood and desire will test her beautiful daughter as Claire's spellbinding journey continues in the intrigue-ridden court of Charles Edward Stuart, in a race to thwart a doomed uprising, and in a desperate fight to save both the child and the man she loves.

Ok I am definitely hooked. More than on chocolate...and that's saying something! I absolutely loved book 1 of this series- Outlander!
This riveting tale, mixing fact and fiction [to the hilt] has it all- a little bit of romance, a little bit of atmosphere, a little bit of intrigue and more than a little bit of sex.
In the back of my mind, I kept thinking: "what are you doing? these books are 800-900+ pages! And not really the type of literature you are used to gobbling up" But when I wasn't in the act of reading, I thought about Jaime and Claire and the Highlanders throughout my day, and I couldn't wait to get back to them when I had finished whatever living I had to do in the meantime.
I was inspired to look up the history of this story- were there really Frasers and MacKenzies and Randalls? and if so, what part did they play in the history of the Jacobite uprisings?
Should you decide to tackle Ms Gabaldon's Outlander series, strap yourself in, because it's a long ride...but Oh So worth it. OR you could wait for the Television series [equally good, and in some ways better, cause there are visuals] to be eeked out to you through the Pay TV drip station.
You won't be sorry, whichever way you chose to engage with this romantic view of history.

DRAGONFLY IN AMBER continues the story begun by OUTLANDER (aka CROSS STITCH), the epic time-travel romance between World War II nurse Claire Randall and mid-eighteenth century Scottish clan chieftain, Jamie Fraser. If you are a fan of "pure" historical fiction/romance, don't let the time travel aspect of the Outlander series put you off - this is the ONLY fantastical element of the story and only serves to give the main, eighteenth-century story line the greater depth that comes with the benefit of hindsight.

DRAGONFLY IN AMBER is, of course, similar to OUTLANDER in many ways, yet its plot contains significantly greater complexity and gravity, and tragedy stalks its pages throughout, pouncing with devastating effect in more than one time and place. Armed with Claire's knowledge of the devastating repercussions that the Battle of Culloden is destined to have for the numerous Scottish clans who march out with Bonnie Prince Charlie against England's Hanoverian King George II, our doughty young lovers set out to change history and save Scotland, including Jamie's nearest and dearest and the people who call him their laird. Thus, Claire and Jamie leave the Scottish Highlands for a time to infiltrate the French court in which Charles Stuart is plotting his invasion of Scotland and England. Posing as loyal Jacobites, Claire and Jamie attempt to get close enough to the Stuart prince to covertly sabotage his plans and keep him out of harm's way and out of Scotland.

DRAGONFLY IN AMBER is thus more intense, intricate, and intrigue-ridden than was its often lighthearted romantic romp of a predecessor. This novel is more densely-written, weighty, and demanding of its reader - blink and you might miss something important.

Dragonfly in Amber is the second book in the Outlander series by American author, Diana Gabaldon. The novel starts in 1968 with Boston surgeon Claire Randall and her twenty year old daughter Brianna, visiting Roger McKenzie, the adopted son of Rev. Reginald Wakefield. Claire tells Roger she is after information about men from Lallybroch who died at Culloden, but it is soon apparent that she has brought Brianna to Scotland to tell her the story of her true father, Jamie Fraser.

From there, the story takes up where it left off in Outlander (Cross Stitch), with Claire and Jamie in Paris doing their best to surreptitiously subvert the cause of Bonnie Prince Charlie. Claire’s knowledge of what happens at Culloden Field is their impetus: they feel compelled to try to save the Highlanders from their awful fate. But can they really change history? Their quest takes them to Paris, to Spain, to Edinburgh, to Stirling and to the Highlands.

Liberally sprinkled through this generous serve of Scottish history are the minutiae of everyday life amongst the wealthy in Paris as well as the gritty details of battle and war. This instalment sees many assaults and murders, duelling, Jamie in the Bastille, friends ending each other’s lives, a dramatic rescue, a revenge killing, a wedding, several pregnancies, and a bit of witchery. Gabaldon’s plot has a few twists to keep the pages turning and enough loose ends to draw the reader into the next book, Voyager.

ow. I read this book for ages! and the whole time I was thinking that it really wasn't all the awesome and that I hadn't started it and that I had just left the series with Outlander. Today I determined to finish it (FINALLY) as it has been sitting on my shelf for weeks, snippets read here and there.

Well, I finished it and the last 300 odd pages had me crying and really wishing I hadn't started it. I had been thinking that the book was overly long and wordy and that there was a lot of detail and not much going on with Jamie and Claire - just intrigue and ... well, a whole lot of fainting on Claire's part that became a little irritating. But the last part of the book was a return to the Outlander original and I fell in love all over again with Claire and Jamie and how much they loved each other.

Diana Gabaldon really can write well. Her writing is wonderful but I don't know if I can do any more Claire and Jamie- well, at least for another while.
