Outlander - Diana Gabaldon I really enjoyed this book. There was one point, very near the end where I didn't think I could go on. I'm pretty much a weakling when it comes to anything gory and Diana Gabaldon definitely knows how to describe torture as I seriously had to put the book down for two days before continuing and that was with forgetting the worst bit was yet to come. How Claire was able to bring Jamie out of this blackness that descends on him is truely a test to their relationship.

Jamie Fraser is just plain hot, manly and sigh wonderful. The interaction between Jamie and Claire was kind of magical. Sure they argued and bickers a bit, but it just goes to show what happens when two fiery characters come together.

I feel that Claire's past is unresolved and feel certain she is going to have to address this at some stage. How this will occur I don't know, but I can't wait to find out. Diana was also able to create the sense that Scotland is on a knife edge and Claire has already shown given the history she is aware of that there is bloodshed to come. Who will be left standing remains a mystery to me, but I can't wait to get started on the other books.

I am feel certain Black Jack Randall is not dead. I wish I would be proven wrong, but I have an inkling I won't.
