Following on the heels of the mass market publication of Outlander, which introduced readers to Claire Randall and her journey through time, Dragonfly in Amber returns us to the heroine 20 years after her fantastic voyage through the stones in Scotland.

I couldn't agree more with the first commenter. I loved the first book but this book bogged down and was boring until the last third, then it went from slow to light speed;good enough to renew my desire to order the rest of the series, from Powells of course!
I like the historical background but this was overkill.

brook Kelly, December 23, 2007 (view all comments by brook Kelly)
I did not like the way this instalment of the Outlander series began. I found the beginning of the first book to be slow. The beginning of the second book was excruciatingly slow. I did not enjoy being thrown into the future with a charactor that had been established in the first book but was still, in essence, a stranger. After the exposition in the first pages of the book I was pleased to be joining Claire and Jamie again. The author has managed to make the 1700s feel familiar. Claire and Jamie seem to come alive when they are in the story together. As I said in the headline, this author can be very longwinded. I had to stop reading and put down the book for several days because I was so bored with the explanations of the politics of Scotland and France in Seventeen-fourty-whatever. I wish she could just tell the story and not school me about political conditions in Scotland 250 years ago. By the time I got to page two hundred I couldn't remember who the Jacobites were and what they represent. After all this I still manage to give the book four stars because, again, I like the story. I just wish that it could have been chopped down by at least 100 pages! I'd recommend reading Tino Georgiou's bestselling novel--The Fates--if you haven't yet!
