I couldn’t wait very long before my curiosity got the better of me and I went hunting for Dragonfly in Amber (1993) by Diana Gabaldon–the second in the Outlander series. This is the continuing story of Claire, the WWII nurse, dragged through time to the 1740’s and her adventures with Jamie Fraser, her sexy Highlander husband. This book follows the events leading up to the Jacobite rebellion in 1745, ending with the battle at Culloden. Jamie and Claire travel first to Paris before heading home to Lollybrach, then following “Bonnie Prince Charlie” to battle.
I wasn’t sure how I wanted to review this book, especially with so many more to follow (because I will read all of these tomes, no matter how long it takes). With the inevitability of spoilers, I figured I’d try a “real time review” of my thoughts as I remember them. That way, I don’t have to figure out a way to organize everything I have to say. So, the rest of this review will only make sense to those who’ve already read the book. Also, it’s going to be full of spoilers, so you wouldn’t want to read this, if you haven’t already read the book. Finally, just to be clear, I really did enjoy reading this book. I got sucked right into it and it took over my life for the few days it took to read it. That’s why I’m waiting a bit before I read the third book.
