New York Times bestselling author of Outlander

Diana Gabaldon mesmerized readers with her award-winning Outlander novels, four dazzling New York Times bestsellers featuring 18th-century Scotsman James Fraser and his 20th-century time-traveling wife, Claire Randall.

Now, in this eagerly awaited fifth volume, Diana Gabaldon continues their extraordinary saga, a masterpiece of pure storytelling and her most astonishing Outlander novel yet....

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.

Born in the year of Our Lord 1918, Claire Randall served England as a nurse on the battlefields of World War II, and in the aftermath of peace found fresh conflicts when she walked through a cleftstone on the Scottish Highlands and found herself an outlander, an English lady in a place where no lady should be, in a time — 1743 — when the only English in Scotland were the officers and men of King George?s army.

Now wife, mother, and surgeon, Claire is still an outlander, out of place, and out of time, but now, by choice, linked by love to her only anchor — Jamie Fraser. Her 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....

Grand, sweeping, utterly unforgettable, Diana Gabaldon?s new novel is riveting entertainment, a vibrant tapestry of history and human drama. Crossing the boundaries of genre with its unrivaled storytelling, The Fiery Cross is a gift both to her millions of loyal fans and to the lucky readers who have yet to discover her.

Review:

"Diana Gabaldon is a born storyteller." Los Angeles Daily News

Review:

"An extraordinary sense of place and time." Minneapolis Star-Tribune

Review:

"An enjoyable escape...Gabaldon is a careful and expert storyteller." Denver Post

Review:

"[The Fiery Cross is] as exciting and insightful as any of its predecessors. Readers see inside the character's hearts and know they remain true to form.... Fans of the series will be delighted with this novel and there are threads left dangling for another mega epic from the great author." Harriet Klausner, BookBrowser.com

Review:

"Diana Gabaldon writes extremely well and, despite a few grey hairs, Claire and Jamie are as engaging (and romantic) as ever....And though I found the series' fire somewhat banked in The Fiery Cross, I still look forward to more adventures of Claire, Jamie and their ever-lengthening tail." Hilary Williamson, BookLoons.com

Review:

"The Fiery Cross falls short of the previous novels' adventure and action....We inexorably advance one year closer to the Revolutionary War without anything actually happening....The Outlander series' great fans will wait with bated breath for the next adventure of Jamie and Claire. Given the length of time between prior publications, that could be many years in the future. However, as long as The Fiery Cross is, they can take their time to savor each and every word." Roz Shea, BookReporter.com

Review:

"Outstanding... don't even think about starting The Fiery Cross unless you have at least a weekend at your disposal... each and every [page] abounds with Ms. Gabaldon's sexy combination of humor, wild adventure and, underlying it all, the redemptive power of love... you'll love every minute." Dallas Morning News

This entire series has me mesmerized! I have read every book in the series so far. A new one comes out this September and I can't wait. I have shared my books with friends and with my daughter. If you enjoy historical fiction and romance novels, you will enjoy this series as it's a combination of both. Jaime is the man of every woman's dreams.
