From the author of the breathtaking bestsellers Outlander and Dragonfly in Amber, the extraordinary saga continues.

Their passionate encounter happened long ago by whatever measurement Claire Randall took. Two decades before, she had traveled back in time and into the arms of a gallant eighteenth-century Scot named Jamie Fraser. Then she returned to her own century to bear his child, believing him dead in the tragic battle of Culloden. Yet his memory has never lessened its hold on her... and her body still cries out for him in her dreams.

Then Claire discovers that Jamie survived. Torn between returning to him and staying with their daughter in her own era, Claire must choose her destiny. And as time and space come full circle, she must find the courage to face the passion and pain awaiting her...the deadly intrigues raging in a divided Scotland... and the daring voyage into the dark unknown that can reunite—or forever doom—her timeless love.

Voyager is the third book in the Outlander series by American author, Diana Gabaldon. Having learned that Jamie did not die at Culloden, Claire, Brianna and Roger use their investigative skills to track his movements some two hundred years later. With her daughter's blessing, she returns to the Standing Stones at Craigh na Dun to revisit the eighteenth century and find the man she never stopped loving.

In this instalment, Gabaldon mainly uses Claire as her first-person narrator, but Jamie, John Grey and Roger Wakefield also tell aspects of the story from their perspective. With the novel being in excess of a thousand pages, Gabaldon has plenty of room to tell her tale, so she manages to include much of what happened to Claire and Jamie in the intervening twenty years as well as the rollercoaster ride that is their lives since their reunion.

Gabaldon's plot takes many turns and manages to include hidden gold, a secret son, bigamy, a kidnapping, pirates, black magic, a slave uprising, a crocodile, a séance, a shipwreck, a Chinaman with a foot fetish, and a hurricane. Claire buys a slave, jumps ship, kills someone with an axe and posits a theory for the Loch Ness monster. And as the title suggests, there is a lot of voyaging going on. This is a highly addictive series and fans will be eager to continue with The Drums of Autumn.

                Comments about Voyager:

                I'm not a great fan of Dianna Gabaldons style of writing. I liked the premise of Cross Stitch/Outlander but I tend to compare this style of writing to the Twilight Saga and it doesn't make the mark for me. What got me back into this series [and I've now bought all 8 of the books]was the Outlander TV series. The TV show is so well produced that it makes one want to find out what happens to the main characters-hence I'm now in the middle of reading book 6. As for the writing style, to me it's more like reading a diary. At times it's a page turner whereas other times it gets bog down in detail. However I'm still happy to read them.

                      Comments about Voyager:

                      This is the 3rd book in the Outlander series and it is the best so far. I love these characters! The book is huge (over 1000 pages!) which means many days of reading pleasure. Initially I thought this series was targeted to female readers but I love it as a man. It has elements of time travel but these are incidental to the story - it is not a science fiction story. Likewise it is not a Mills & Boon romance. It is an historical drama with "real" people you love and care for. One day this will be considered a masterpiece. Highly recommended for all book lovers, male and female, young (16+) and old.

Twisting and turning but always coming out ok, thrilling and breath holding. Love love Loved it
