BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Diana Gabaldon's A Breath of Snow and Ashes.
The dazzling fifth volume of Diana Gabaldon’s extraordinary Outlander saga, featuring 18th-century Scotsman James Fraser and his 20th-century time-traveling wife, Claire Randall.
The year is 1771, and war is coming. Jamie Fraser’s wife tells him so. Little as he wishes to, he must believe it, for hers is a gift of dreadful prophecy—a time-traveler’s certain knowledge.
Born in the year of Our Lord 1918, Claire Randall served England as a nurse on the battlefields of World War II, and in the aftermath of peace found fresh conflicts when she walked through a cleftstone on the Scottish Highlands and found herself an outlander, an English lady in a place where no lady should be, in a time—1743—when the only English in Scotland were the officers and men of King George’s army.
Now wife, mother, and surgeon, Claire is still an outlander, out of place, and out of time, but now, by choice, linked by love to her only anchor—Jamie Fraser. Her unique view of the future has brought him both danger and deliverance in the past; her knowledge of the oncoming revolution is a flickering torch that may light his way through the perilous years ahead—or ignite a conflagration that will leave their lives in ashes....
Grand, sweeping, utterly unforgettable, The Fiery Cross is riveting entertainment, a vibrant tapestry of history and human drama.

Absolutely loved this book!
A lot of people have said they had problems getting through this book, but I did not. I enjoyed this book immensely! Diana is a wonderful writer, I’m enjoying reading the series for the first time!
If it's possible to fall more in love...
It got off to a slow start at the gathering but in true outlander fashion it was to lay the groundwork for so many things to come. Loved this one so much!
In a nut shell-first time read through
It’s great when the story line is moving but a lot of it will be pretty stagnant. And you just have to wade yourself before you find something in the book you enjoy. Wether it be the romantic aspects or the historical parts of even the medical parts. A lot of it could have been cut from this book and it would have been a great book!! But no this was worse than my first read through of Dragonfly in Amber.
