I think though that my absolute favorite part about Echo is seeing the evolution of the characters. I think that it is nothing short of amazing that Diana can write about the same characters over and over again and still make them grow and evolve as people. I loved reading Echo and thinking back to what Jamie and Claire were like in Outlander and even young Ian in earlier books. They really have grown up and grown older. I think that that is the key to what makes Jamie, Claire, and the rest so lovable and so real; Diana writes them as if they are real people who grow, change, and live. I know them and love them and can't wait to see what happens next :)

Sometimes a series starts getting old and tired, but not this one. This is the 7th book in the series, and I still found myself reading furiously, wanting to know what happens next. This grand saga, filled with drama, history, love and suspense is a must read. Every person I have suggested this series to has been pulled in, reading every book in the series as quickly as they could.

I usually recycle my books to the lending library at work, but I love this series so much I have kept all of the books. I am just thrilled that Ms. Gabaldon wrote another book in the series.

Outlander is the best series I have ever read. When it was first passed down to me, my friend said "I'm jealous your just starting and I've already finished". I also feel this way, every time I suggest or buy another copy to pass to a friend. This year her latest book in the series arrived. "An Echo in the Bone" was a great reunion with characters, Jamie and Claire and gave hope that another in the series will follow.

This is Diana Gabaldon's latest in the Outlander series. I have read these books twice and with knee surgery coming up in Feb, I'm sure I will go through them a third time. I am almost finished with this last book and I feel that she is going to close the chapters on Jamie and Clare but I hope she continues with Roger and Brianna. She always finishes these book leaving the reader anxious and waiting for more.

At last! The seventh book in Diana Gabaldon's Outlander saga is here! I could hardly wait to get my hands on it and I was not disappointed. While Claire and Jamie are caught up in the American Revolution, their daughter Brianna has settled back into the 20th century, unaware that she and her family are not as safe as her parents intended when they sent them back. Now my only problem is finding the patience to wait for the next book.
Readers have been waiting with bated breath for the seventh volume in bestselling author Diana Gabaldon's epic Outlander saga — a masterpiece of historical fiction featuring Jamie and Claire, from one of the genre's most popular and beloved authors.
Jamie Fraser, erstwhile Jacobite and reluctant rebel, knows three things about the American rebellion: the Americans will win, unlikely as that seems in 1778; being on the winning side is no guarantee of survival; and he'd rather die than face his illegitimate son — a young lieutenant in the British Army — across the barrel of a gun. Fraser's time-travelling wife, Claire, also knows a couple of things: that the Americans will win, but that the ultimate price of victory is a mystery. What she does believe is that the price won't include Jamie's life or happiness — not if she has anything to say.
Claire's grown daughter Brianna, and her husband, Roger, watch the unfolding of Brianna’s parents' history — a past that may be sneaking up behind their own family.
