In the ten years since her extraordinary debut novel, OUTLANDER, was published, Diana Gabaldon has entertained scores of listeners with her heart-stirring stories and remarkable characters. The four volumes of her New York Times bestselling saga, featuring eighteenth century Scotsman James Fraser and his twentieth century, time-traveling wife, Claire Randall, have nearly five million U.S. copies in print.

The story of OUTLANDER begins just after the Second World War, when a British field nurse named Claire Randall walked through a cleft stone in the Scottish highlands and was transported back some two hundred years to 1743.

Here now is THE FIERY CROSS, the eagerly awaited fifth volume in this remarkable, award-winning series of historical novels. 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. To break his oath to the Crown will brand him a traitor; to keep it is certain doom. Jamie Fraser stands in the shadow of the fiery cross-a standard that leads nowhere but the bloody brink of war.

Crossing the boundaries of genre with its unrivaled storytelling, Diana Gabaldon's new novel is a gift both to her many loyal fans and to the lucky listeners who have yet to discover her.

Comments about The Fiery Cross:

I love the Outlander series! I had ordered all the beautiful landscape covers from Booktopia for books 1-4, however, this cover does not continue in the series. I was slightly disappointed on receiving this book and realising that the pages were rather thin (a bit like most Bibles) where you can see through the pages if you hold them to the light, they tear easily, etc.

I love the series but just wish the pages weren't so easily torn!

    Comments about The Fiery Cross:

    I have often thought of writing a book, however this book is so good and so well written and researched that I could never write anything so excellent. The story is exciting, different twists and turns and bringing in characters that had been put aside or retired to make it thrilling.

    Addictive in the extreme. "Toronto Star" A word-of-mouth cult success and a publishing phenomenon. "Kitchener-Waterloo Record" Leaving out the history, the time-travel and fantastical subplots, the wit and irony, battles and heroes and villains, what will keep loyal readers and attract new is this fine portrait of two immensely admirable and interesting characters.
