There's never been a better time to discover the novels behind the blockbuster Starz original seriesOutlander. Blending rich historical fiction with riveting adventure and a truly epic love story, here are the first four books of Diana Gabaldon'sNew York Times bestselling saga that introduced the world to the brilliant Claire Randall and valiant Highlander Jamie Fraser:
OUTLANDER DRAGONFLY IN AMBER VOYAGER DRUMS OF AUTUMN
Scottish Highlands, 1945. Claire Randall, a former British combat nurse, is just back from the war and reunited with her husband on a second honeymoon when she walks through a standing stone in one of the ancient circles that dot the British Isles. Suddenly she is a Sassenach-an "outlander"-in a Scotland torn by war and raiding clans in the year of Our Lord . . . 1743. Claire is catapulted into the intrigues of a world that threatens her life, and may shatter her heart. Marooned amid danger, passion, and violence, her only chance of safety lies in Jamie Fraser, a gallant young Scots warrior. What begins in compulsion becomes urgent need, and Claire finds herself torn between two very different men, in two irreconcilable lives.
I love the story of Claire and Jamie AND the historical facts make it even more real.
I Books are small, therefore text is small print
Stories are good but when I purchased the set I couldn't tell that the books were small in size and therefore small print. Also books are poor quality, pages are coming out.
Print too small but great book
Love the story-line and writing style... however, for this book set, I had to buy my first ever pair of reading glasses to be able to read the tiny print. I wish I had have bought a version of these books that had a larger print size.
Easy reading got me back into books
Great to skim through and refresh for the following books
Yes, when this box set falls to pieces, I will buy it again.
Easy to handle and read, Difficult to find reading time - but that's life!

These books bring you into the story and you cannot put them down.
These books are a 10/10.
Having seen seasons 1 & 2 of the TV series, I decided to read the books, and was surprised to find that there were so many in the set. I've only just finished the first book, but I'm looking forward to season 3 on TV. They are a good read.
I would by this product again.
Great books at great prices delivered quickly
Have just found Outlander and now I'm totally hooked. Have bought all the books and the DVD's.
Well worth getting into!!
I am throughly enjoying these books. I am on to the second and can't wait to begin the next.

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 Outlanderseries, 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.
