So you can imagine my relief when Jamie and Claire find each other again in Voyager (that's the only spoiler, if it even counts as one). And the mini cardiac arrest I had each time they were separated. This is perhaps the magic of Jamie and Claire Fraser for me. They've drawn me in so that I can't stand to see them apart even for a moment. I'm only happy if they are doing every single thing in the world together!
Impractical, unreasonable, and unrealistic...I don't care. That's what I love about books - it's not unrealistic to want in books what you can't have in real life! And things that don't work in real life (living every single moment next to the same person), works in books.
Anyway, Voyager has everything readers loved from the first two Outlander books: Jamie Fraser, plenty of adventure, plot twists, an ending that sets up the next book amazingly, and did I mention Jamie Fraser? Secret identities, surprising pasts, pirates, kidnapping, treasure, witchery, and more of the same characters we love and some we love to hate. Set twenty years after we last saw Jamie and Claire together, it makes for a pretty glorious reunion if you feel about them as I do.
If you've read the first one or two, keep reading! If you haven't read Outlander at all, get reading! Drums of Autumn (#4), here I come!
