An Echo in the Bone: Outlander Novel 7 Kindle Edition
|New from||Used from|
THE TRIUMPHANT SEVENTH NOVEL IN THE MULTI-MILLION BESTSELLING OUTLANDER SERIES.
The year is 1777. The place, North Carolina. And as the American rebellion grows in intensity, Highlander Jamie Fraser and his wife Claire need to decide which side their family is going to be on.
The choice should be an easy one, given that Claire was born in the twentieth century and has already seen the future - in history books. But things are never simple where the Frasers are concerned, as father and son unwittingly come face to face on the battlefield, and an old adversary reaches forward in time to threaten the next generation.
Up to now, Claire and Jamie's love has survived every danger history has put in their path, but in the chaos of war, with families bitterly divided against each other, is the future finally going to catch up with them?

Don't pick up another one of these books, just pretend that Diana's editor had the nerve to tell her to quit and that was that. As it is, this novel is another in a string of barely believable, contrived, overlong, turgid reads.
There is a phenomenal amount of pointless detail and minutia that could have been cut with no detriment to the plot, such as it is.
The actions of the main characters are often inconsistent with their previous behaviour and demonstrated personality, such that you begin to think that it's a series about body-swappers rather than time travel.
And then of course you have the now familiar desperately reaching plots that reek of a lack of imagination and a sheer disrespect for the integrity of the story and the intelligence of the reader.
For my sins, I've foolishly started reading the next book and within 80 pages I'm wishing I hadn't bothered. It actually gets worse, quite farcical in fact.
So don't make my mistake, stop after Voyager and remember the first few stories for the quality works that they are.
I've heard in recent interviews that DG doesn't care about what her readers think. If you've read this book, you'll realise that already,
The book had good moments and I’m now reading to see how the series ends. I think that’s how most writers who write series end up selling books even if the book series deteriorates as it goes along which this one has unfortunately
