Dragonfly In Amber

(Outlander 2)

Outlander

(3)

THE SECOND NOVEL IN THE BESTSELLING OUTLANDER SERIES - now a major new TV series.

For twenty years Claire Randall has kept her secrets. But now she is returning with her grown daughter to the majesty of Scotland's mist-shrouded hills. Here Claire plans to reveal a truth as stunning as the events that gave it birth: about the mystery of an ancient circle of standing stones, about a love that transcends the boundaries of time, and about James Fraser, a warrior whose gallantry once drew the young Claire from the security of her century to the dangers of his.

Now a legacy of blood and desire will test her beautiful daughter as Claire's spellbinding journey continues in the intrigue-ridden court of Charles Edward Stuart, in a race to thwart a doomed uprising, and in a desperate fight to save both the child and the man she loves.

"Dragonfly In Amber" is the second installment of Diana Gabaldon's highly successful "Outlander" series. 20 years after returning to her native time, Claire takes her daughter to Scotland. Not only does Claire want to find out what happened to the people she left behind in 1746, she is also intent on finally sharing with Brianna the story of her origin. Having left Scotland after Jamie's traumatizing experience at Wentworth Prison, the couple find themselves at the intrigue-ridden court of King Louis XV of France. Will they be able to manipulate Bonnie Prince Charlie and prevent the uprising? And will Brianna believe her mother's all but unbelievable story? Initially, I was a little bit sceptical going into this book, because it doesn't immediately pick up where "Outlander" left off, but in retrospect, it was a very smart choice to continue the series this way. The storyline is gripping and at times heart-breaking, but never boring. Quite a few of the new characters you just can't help falling in love with. Especially Fergus, Mary and Raymond are quite refreshing additions to the series. Of course, there are also a couple of characters you just love to hate - you'll know who I mean. Even though "Dragonfly In Amber" didn't enthuse me as much as the series' first installment, I still very much enjoyed reading it. It definitely is a worthy sequel!

Dragonfly in Amber kann ich jedem wärmstens empfehlen. Es ist gut und verständlich geschrieben, sodass man auch die englische Version gut verstehen kann. Sogar an den schottischen Slang hat man sich schnell gewöhnt. Der Inhalt ist spannend, obwohl ich persönlich Paris nicht so interessant finde wie die Highlands. Zudem... Dragonfly in Amber kann ich jedem wärmstens empfehlen. Es ist gut und verständlich geschrieben, sodass man auch die englische Version gut verstehen kann. Sogar an den schottischen Slang hat man sich schnell gewöhnt. Der Inhalt ist spannend, obwohl ich persönlich Paris nicht so interessant finde wie die Highlands. Zudem muss ich zugeben, dass mir manche Teile in der TV-Serie besser gefallen haben und manche Teile im Buch schöner ausgeführt werden. Ich freue mich schon auf den nächsten Teil!

This is the second book in the outlander series. I enjoyed it very much because of the wonderful historic narrations. It is extremely well read, with scottish accents as well. The story takes very creative turns and the author leaves you with the wish to continue listening...
