Synopsis

This eBook includes the full text of the novel plus the following additional content:
• An excerpt from Diana Gabaldon’s Dragonfly in Amber, the second novel in the Outlander series
• An interview with Diana Gabaldon
• An Outlander reader’s guide

Claire Randall is leading a double life. She has a husband in one century, and a lover in another...

In 1945, Claire Randall, a former combat nurse, is back from the war and reunited with her husband on a second honeymoon—when she innocently touches a boulder in one of the ancient stone circles that dot the British Isles. Suddenly she is a Sassenach—an "outlander"—in a Scotland torn by war and raiding border clans in the year of our Lord...1743.

Hurled back in time by forces she cannot understand, Claire's destiny in soon inextricably intertwined with Clan MacKenzie and the forbidden Castle Leoch. She is catapulted without warning into the intrigues of lairds and spies that may threaten her life ...and shatter her heart. For here, James Fraser, a gallant young Scots warrior, shows her a passion so fierce and a love so absolute that Claire becomes a woman torn between fidelity and desire...and between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.

Started by watching the series of Outlander on STARZ and LOVED it so I had to get the book because I just couldn't wait till the next season to find out what happens and OMG, it's SO AWESOME!!! A definite must read!! I'm on to the next book in the series. Thank you for putting out such a wonderful, powerful book full of action, intrigue, love and romance like NO other. I've read A LOT of books and this is BY FAR one of the best series of books I have EVER had the honor to read.

At first, it took me a while to get into this book, but after a few chapters i was completely hooked. It's a good mix of Historical Fiction and Romance, but not the trashy novel kind. ;)

First this novel was a historical piece, then it was sci-fi, then it was romance, then action-adventure. For all the things "Outlander" is and can be at any given moment, on any given page, at any given sentence or word, it will always remain a masterpiece. Thank you, Diana Gabaldon. Thank you.

This is the BEST series of books I have ever read. The characters and plot are so engrossing that you almost don't realize how much you are learning about history.

::Warning * This book is like crack and you will become addicted to this series! Outlander was a roller coaster from beginning to end. It started of a little slow, but I had read previous comments that it picks up after the first hundred pages. Quite accuretly so, but nothing could prepare me for how obsessed I would become with the lives of these characters. Diana Gabaldon is a wonderful writer and knows how to keep her readers hooked. It is my all time favorite book!::

This is the book that got me hooked on the whole series. I have read them all including the Lord John Grey series. Both are excellent and I did not want them to end. Detailed writing style which draws you right into the storyline.

Offensive, needlessly graphic, and smutty. At one point, Jamie punishes Claire for disobeying him by literally spanking her - which was treated as perfectly understandable, and was quickly dismissed. I am amazed that so many women rave about the series
