After loving Outlander so much, I pretty much started book 2 straight away – Dragonfly in Amber!
Dragonfly in Amber by Diana Gabaldon
Genre: Historical Fiction
BUG Rating: 4.5/5
Overall: I LOVED this book. I have totally fallen in love with Gabaldon’s writing style and have really enjoyed losing myself in the last two books. The story and cast of characters are so well crafted, rich and highly addictive! The book was full of magic, passion and heartbreak (including many death and sex scenes!) I was beside myself at the end – the most intense of all cliffhangers – be warned! I am so ready to dive into book 3 to see what happens next!
From the author of Outlander… a magnificent epic that once again sweeps us back in time to the drama and passion of 18th-century Scotland…
For 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 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 Scottish warrior whose gallantry once drew a young Claire from the security of her century to the dangers of his ….
Now 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 loves….
