QUICK REVIEW: DRAGONFLY IN AMBER BY DIANA GABALDON


Dragonfly in Amber (Outlander #2)

Written by Diana Gabaldon

Genre: Historical Romance

Purchase: Amazon / B&N




SYNOPSIS:

With her now-classic novel Outlander, Diana Gabaldon introduced two unforgettable characters — Claire Randall and Jamie Fraser—delighting readers with a story of adventure and love that spanned two centuries. Now Gabaldon returns to that extraordinary time and place in this vivid, powerful follow-up to Outlander....

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....

* 5 STARS * REVIEW:



I love Jamie's playfulness, temper and selflessness.
I love Claire's wit and determination.
I love Mrs. Gabaldon's writing abilities and complex storytelling skills.
And I freaking adore this series!
Do not make any excuses, you have to read and experience this epic story yourself!

James Fraser in all his glory:



And just a little advice for my fellow readers:
