Dragonfly In Amber: (Outlander 2)

Front Cover
Random House, Aug 31, 2011 - Fiction - 976 pages

THE SECOND NOVEL IN THE BESTSELLING OUTLANDER SERIES - now a major new TV series.

For twenty years Claire Randall has kept her secrets. But now she is returning with her grown daughter to the majesty of Scotland's 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 warrior whose gallantry once drew the young Claire from the security of her century to the dangers of his.

Now a legacy of blood and desire will test her beautiful daughter as Claire's spellbinding journey continues in the intrigue-ridden court of Charles Edward Stuart, in a race to thwart a doomed uprising, and in a desperate fight to save both the child and the man she loves.

I couldn´t stop reading it. another fantastic part of this love and adventure story. Ms. Gabaldon is a very serious researcher of history, and we can find that in the book. Probably she´s the time traveler, another dr. who. Read full review

It seemed very familiar to me and I don't care to read books over and over. It wasn't as good as the first book of the series. It is action pact and somewhat exhausting, and better towards the end. The writing didn't seem as smooth to me as the Outlander was. The errors bothered me. Read full review

About the author (2011)

DIANA GABALDON is the author of the international bestselling Outlander novels and Lord John Grey series.

She says that the Outlander series started by accident: ‘I decided to write a novel for practice in order to learn what it took to write a novel, and to decide whether I really wanted to do it for real. I did – and here we all are trying to decide what to call books that nobody can describe, but that fortunately most people seem to enjoy.’

And enjoy them they do – in their millions, all over the world. Published in 42 countries and 38 languages, in 2014 the Outlander novels were made into an acclaimed TV series starring Sam Heughan as Jamie Fraser and Caitriona Balfe as Claire. The series has now been renewed for a fifth and sixth season.

Diana lives with her husband and dogs in Scottsdale, Arizona and is currently at work on her ninth Outlander novel.
