    “ This author has a real talent for perfectly blending historical fiction, romance, fantasy and science fiction into a truly enthralling story. This book kept me transfixed throughout which was no small feat given the immense length of the story. ”

    “ The first half of this book was somewhat slow-paced, but once it got going in the last half it more than made up for the slow start. Another winner from Diana Gabaldon! ”

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Review by Stacey G. | 5/21/2012

    “ I've been a faithful reader of the previous Outlander books but this one really didn't hold my interest. Too many details that weighed down the actual story and WAY too long. Seriously this book could have been much improved by trimming nearly half of its length. This book is only for the most die-hard fans. ”
