THE SIXTH NOVEL IN THE BESTSELLING Outlander SERIES.

The long fuse of rebellion has already been lit.

It's 1772, the Royal Colony of North Carolina, and the governor calls upon Jamie Fraser to unite the backcountry and preserve the colony for King and Crown.

One minor problem: Jamie Fraser's wife, Claire, is a time-traveller, as are his daughter and son-in-law. And Jamie knows that three years hence, the shot heard round the world will be fired, and the end of it all will be independence - with those loyal to the King either dead or in exile.

Beyond present danger, though, looms the threat of a tiny clipping from the Wilmington Gazette, dated 1776, which reports the destruction of the house on Fraser's Ridge and the death by fire of James Fraser and all his family. For once, Jamie Fraser hopes the time-travelers in his family are wrong about the future. But only time will tell.

Industry Reviews

"Gripping." - OK!

"The sixth instalment of the adventures of Claire and Jamie Fraser, already number one on the bestseller list, is a whopping 980 pages of action-packed escapism. It also has surprisingly melancholy and insightful views on the experience of growing old and dealing with the losses that entails... One of the things that sets Gabaldon apart from other romance writers is exhaustive research of the times in which her characters live, so evident in her attention to period detail.... plot lines and stand-alone yarns are expertly woven together with the overall theme of impending doom and the question of predetermination." - The Toronto Star

"Fans of Diana Gabaldon's popular Outlander series have another rousing historical-science-fiction-romance novel to savour in A Breath of Snow and Ashes... For fans, this book is another slam-dunk hit. It's a massive, long-lasting source of entertainment." - The Gazette (Montreal)

"Riveting. Gabaldon has a true storyteller's voice." - The Globe and Mail

"Triumphant. . . . Her use of historical detail and truly adult love story confirm Gabaldon as a superior writer." - Publishers Weekly

"Readers will find every expectation fulfilled... The large scope of the novel allows Gabaldon to do what she does best, paint in exquisite detail the lives of her characters." - Booklist

Diana Gabaldon

About the Author


Diana Gabaldon is the author of the award-winning, #1 NYT-Bestselling Outlander novels, described by Salon magazine as the smartest historical sci-fi adventure-romance story ever written by a science Ph.D. with a background in scripting Scrooge McDuck comics.

The adventure began in 1991 with the classic Outlander (historical fiction with a Moebius twist), has continued through seven more New York Times-bestselling novels, Dragonfly in Amber, Voyager, Drums of Autumn, The Fiery Cross, A Breath of Snow and Ashes , An Echo in the Bone, and Written in My Own Heart's Blood, with more than twenty-six million copies in print worldwide. 

The series is published in 26 countries and 23 languages, and includes a nonfiction (well, relatively) companion volume, The Outlandish Companion, which provides details on the settings, background, characters, research, and writing of the first novels in the series. Gabaldon (it's pronounced GAA-bull-dohn, rhymes with stone) has also written several books in a sub-series featuring Lord John Grey (a major minor character from the main series):  Lord John and The Private Matter, Lord John and the Hand of Devils, Lord John And The Brotherhood Of The Blade, and The Scottish Prisoner.

Returning to her comic-book roots, she has also written a graphic novel titled The Exile (set within the Outlander universe and featuring the main characters from Outlander), but told from the viewpoint of Jamie Fraser and his godfather, Murtagh. The graphic novel is illustrated by Hoang Nguyen, and published by Del-Rey.

The eighth and most recent major novel in the  Outlander series, Written in My Own Heart's Blood, made its debut as number one on the New York Times bestseller list. 

Diana's current writing projects include the ninth major novel in the Outlander series, as yet untitled, and a second volume of The Outlandish Companion. She is also serving as a co-producer and advisor for the Outlander TV series produced by the Starz network and Tall Ship Productions, which is based on her novels.

Diana and her husband, Douglas Watkins, have three adult children and live mostly in Scottsdale, Arizona.
