From the author of the breathtaking bestsellers Outlander and Dragonfly in Amber , the extraordinary saga continues.

Their passionate encounter happened long ago by whatever measurement Claire Randall took. Two decades before, she had traveled back in time and into the arms of a gallant eighteenth-century Scot named Jamie Fraser. Then she returned to her own century to bear his child, believing him dead in the tragic battle of Culloden. Yet his memory has never lessened its hold on her... and her body still cries out for him in her dreams.

Then Claire discovers that Jamie survived. Torn between returning to him and staying with their daughter in her own era, Claire must choose her destiny. And as time and space come full circle, she must find the courage to face the passion and pain awaiting her...the deadly intrigues raging in a divided Scotland... and the daring voyage into the dark unknown that can reunite--or forever doom--her timeless love.

Jamie and Claire reunite twenty years after the events of Dragonfly in Amber. We learn what happened in those twenty years and read on as they voyage to many new places and see familiar faces.

Jamie and Claire's excellent adventure continues: Claire goes back through the stones and encounters Jamie, smugglers, brothels, a Chinaman, stolen treasure, a sea voyage, typhus, the Caribbean, witchcraft, an old friend, slaves, a lost nephew, a shipwreck, and near drowning -- and that's only half of it. It was like time traveling nurse meets Indian Jones. Thank goodness their love life is still active at their age.
I'm addicted to Jamie and Claire -- but this was a bit ridiculous.
Not sure if I'm going to continue the series.

I gulped this in just over 24 hrs, even staying up all the 2nd night to finish. Haven't done that since college, and this was much more fun, even if I paid for it more this time around! So many plot characteristics seem a bit fantastic, yet except at the very end, Gabaldon makes them make sense. Actually, they do make sense in the context. What a description of being in a hurricane! I can't wait to put the next one on hold and see what Jamie and Claire make of their lives next. I also long to know what Brianna and Roger are doing back in 1968. . . .

Feb 20, 2015..... this is about the fifth time I have read this book! I can still enjoy it, but I am easily distracted by TV series and a little renovating for a friend, so it is slow going. I hope to finish the series, and start on the new book (Written) by the summer! I have the audiobook for Drums on my computer, and ready for when I start that one. None of the audio books for the first 3 books were available while I was reading them, so that will be a brand new experience!

This book has long been the turning point in the series for me -- while I love the relationship between Jamie and Claire (and continue to read the books), VOYAGER has always been the book where, as I reader, I felt the fantasy element became too outlandish, particularly in contrast to the domestic scenes, which become even more rewarding. I was most pleased to discover, on this re-read, that it is not the whole book that drives me nuts, with only brief satisfaction at the reunion of Claire and Jamie; the first 600 pages or so are phenomenal, with only a few incredulous moments, such as when Claire is asked to look at the set of bones discovered in the Caribbean. While the end of the book, with its expansion on the theory of time travel, a return of a most unpleasant character, and much adventuring, is perhaps best read through once and skimmed thereafter, fans of the series will find much to love in the first sections.

I'm slowly making my way through the Outlander books. Each one is longer than the next - thank goodness for e-books as this one was almost 1000 pages. I enjoyed this one a lot and had a hard time putting it down but the first one is still my favourite. I was a little put-off by the hocus-pocus near the end. I know, I can accept time travel but not magic? - but that's just me. Looking forward to the next book in the series.

NOT SF/F. Bodice ripper. I am really tired of having stuff like this foisted off on me as SF/F. This should be listed only under "romance novels". Even for a bodice ripper I find this series particularly brainless and unbelievable. Seriously - she just gets back to civilization and medical care (pregnant yet) and she's actually considering going BACK??? I'm sure the author is weeping all the way to the bank. See my comments on the originating novel "Outlander" for a more descriptive comment.

Not for ANY reason should a reasonable human being consider such a thing. There are many reasons - medical and dental care. Sanitary water supply. General cleanliness. Refrigeration and other food safety considerations. Only a crazy person would prefer to live in the early 18th century - especially after having undergone multiple sexual assaults and suffering a forced marriage by capture.

"The first thing you do when I find you is faint, and as soon as I've got you back on your feet, you get me assaulted in a pub and chased through Edinburgh in company with a deviant Chinese, ending up in a brothel--whose madam seems to be on awfully familiar terms with you, I might add. You then take off your clothes, announce that you're a terrible person with a depraved past, and take me to bed. What did you expect me to think?"-Claire

"Samhain--hallowe'en, you know?--that's one of the feasts when it was customary to try to divine the future. And one of the ways of divination was to walk to the end of the house, and then step outside with your eyes closed. The first thing you see when you open them is an omen for the near future."-Roger
