I adore this series, and though I liked the second installment slightly less than the first, I am desperate to continue to the end. I NEED to know what happens with Gilly Duncan, did Jamie survive Collodden Field? I was admittedly a little bored by the start of this book, I didn't like the present (1960s) setting and felt like I got a bit of an info dump when Claire goes to visit Roger with Briana after the death of the reverend. There's just a whole big bunch of explaining that I didn't really appreciate. What I truly love about these books is the historical aspect. I can find no fault with any of the parts of this story in the 1700s. I love the highlanders, I LOVE Jamie, I love Claire and how well she has used her upbringing and knowledge to help herself fit in to a time well before her. I love the political intrigue, the twisted family trees, the shady goings on, the small pox aspect of the story is a nice period appropriate touch. It is an immersive world that is well researched and perfectly executed. I just feel that Gabaldon struggles with the simplicity of writing a present day setting as I found those parts of this book to be the weakest aspect. The French court setting an amazing addition to this book as well, what a treacherous place to try and survive! I quite enjoyed how Claire became La donne Blanche as well! The depth and detail to which Gabaldon goes is incredible, I have no qualms in continuing this series, massive though it is! - Samantha (QBD)
