I am a big fan of Diana Gabaldon's writing and this did not disappoint (she never does!). The added bonus, here, of course
is that Jamie from the Outlander series features prominently. Thoroughly enjoyable and highly recommended if you

“I found power in accepting the truth of who I am. It may not be a truth that others can accept, but I cannot live any other way. How would it be to live a lie every minute of your life.”
Alison Goodman, Eon: Dragoneye Reborn

“There was a saying that a man's true character was revealed in defeat. I thought it was also revealed in victory.”
Alison Goodman, Eon: Dragoneye Reborn

“You are wrong when you say there is no power in being a woman. When I think of my mother and the women in my tribe, and the hidden women in the harem, I know there are many types of power in this world...I found power in accepting the truth of who I am. It may not be a truth that others can accept, but I cannot live any other way. How would it be to live a lie every minute of your life? I don't think I could do it.”
Alison Goodman, Eon: Dragoneye Reborn
