The year is 1771, and war is coming. Jamie Fraser’s wife tells him so. Little as he wishes to, he must believe it, for hers is a gift of dreadful prophecy—a time-traveler’s certain knowledge. Claire’s unique view of the future has brought him both danger and deliverance in the past; her knowledge of the 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 ashes.


My my this poor family has really the shit end of the deal huh? I don't think Ms. Gabaldon could make it any harder on them - but I know she does since the Hubby has told me as much.


The last 3 or 4 chapters in this book were the best in the series thus far. While at this point I DO feel connected to these characters, it wasn't until these chapters that I actually shed tears with them.

I really liked the big surprise at the end, that was probably the most happy moment of the series. The surprise I mean is with the wolf.

I loved how Roger and Jemmy are coming in this story. As father and son. And I am enjoying how Roger and Jamie are coming along together too.

The author really does have amazing character development but jesus does it have to be so blood long!?!?

That's still my biggest issue is that these epic books just are so, epic.

It takes way to many hours to read them to get to the nitty gritty.

Of course I am going to read book 6 because now, I'm over 150 hours into the series it would be crazy to just give it up now ya know?

Overall a 4.5 for this book and a 4 star for the series as a whole.
