Publisher Description

Crossing the boundaries of genre with its unrivalled storytelling, Diana Gabaldon’ s new novel is a gift both to her millions of loyal fans and to the lucky readers who have yet to discover her.

In the ten years since her extraordinary debut novel, Outlander, was published, beloved author Diana Gabaldon has entertained scores of readers with her heart-stirring stories and remarkable characters. The four volumes of her bestselling saga, featuring eighteenth-century Scotsman James Fraser and his twentieth-century, time-travelling wife, Claire Randall, boasts nearly 5 million copies in the U.S.

The story of Outlander begins just after the Second World War, when a British field nurse named Claire Randall walks through a cleft stone in the Scottish highlands and is transported back some two hundred years to 1743.

Here, now, is The Fiery Cross, the eagerly awaited fifth volume in this remarkable, award-winning series of historical novels. The year is 1771, and war is approaching. Jamie Fraser’ s wife has told him so. Little as he wishes to, he must believe it, for hers is a gift of dreadful prophecy – a time-traveller’s certain knowledge. To break his oath to the Crown will brand him a traitor; to keep it is certain doom. Jamie Fraser stands in the shadow of the fiery cross – a standard that leads nowhere but to the bloody brink of war.

The Fiery Cross by Diana Gabaldon

This is an excellent continuation of the Outlander series. She keeps a hold of you and you can almost not put it down! You’d think that no more could be written at the fifth instalment in this series, but she comes up with the greatest stories you get so immersed in the characters you almost believe that these are real people! I can hardly wait to dive into the next book. If you’re into history, or romance or even mystery, these are the books for you! Watch the TV series as well as they are done very well. I almost say to myself at the end of the hour “it’s over already?”. Diana does not disappoint at least for this reader and watcher of the series!

The Fiery Cross

The trials and tribulations of mountain life. So much danger with health, war, crime, and social issues. Jamie and Claire are very real characters. Now we know Brianna and Roger much better. The whole idea of time travel gets a bigger scope. But the last line by Jamie, brought me to tears. Witty, but so serious at the same time, knowing about the house fire still to come. Now I get the title of the next book. Diana Gabaldon has the best imagination !
