Voyager (Outlander #3)
Their passionate encounter happened long ago by whatever measurement Claire Randall took. Two decades before, she had traveled back in time and into the arms of a gallant eighteenth-century Scot named Jamie Fraser. Then she returned to her own century to bear...more

Seriously, these books are so D!@# good. Mostly because she's such a detailed writer and she's really good at grabbing your attention and taking it for an adventurous ride. In fact, the cover of the book had a review on the cover that said, "Adventurous escapism at it's finest." Amen. Once you're in, it's so hard to think of anything else until it's over.
But at the same time... these books are entirely too ridiculous. So much happen ...more

This was another five star read. I mean, how can it not be. The effort this author has put into the books is unbelievable. Not sure how long it takes her to do her research.
“It has always been forever, for me, Sassenach”
Twenty years have passed and Claire returns through the stones. I thought their first meeting fell a little bit flat for me! Maybe my expections were too high.

! Voyager, book 3. Claire and Jamie are finally reunited after twenty years apart. Has their love managed to survive the long separation?
VOYAGER is definitley my new favorite book in this series after OUTLANDER. It was pretty much perfection for me and it pains me not to give this 5 stars. I have absolutely no comlplaint about the first 50-60%, after that it was still amazing but there were some storylines I liked more then others. These books are so fantastic. A pure joy to read. They have eve ...more

Beware of Spoilers
Voyager is the third installment in Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series. Voyager picks up where Dragonfly in Amber left off. Jamie and Claire have just parted ways…him to go back and face his grisly death on Culloden field and her to go back through the stones at Craigh na Dun so she can bring her and Jamie’s child safely into the world.
The book then takes us through the next twenty years, telling us what exactly happened to the sepa ...more
After finishing the audiobook for the previous book in this series, Dragonfly in Amber, I found it very hard to move on to something else. My mind was still with Jamie. Even though I had planned to take a bit of a break between books, I ended up waiting only a couple of weeks before starting Voyager. I remember falling in love with this book the first time I read it and I am happy to say that I still am in love.
My teenage daughter asked me wha ...more
“Only you," he said, so softly I could barely hear him. "To worship ye with my body, give ye all the service of my hands. To give ye my name, and all my heart and soul with it. Only you. Because ye will not let me lie--and yet ye love me.”
EPIC STORY. PHENOMENAL WRITING.
This is without a doubt my all time favourite series!
To read my reviews of previous books, click on pic:
In the beginning I fell right in and never wanted it to end. However, this was the first book in the series where I began to feel it was all a little much. Over the top- constantly falling into situation after situation that all felt a little too convenient. I also (for the first time) felt that ...more
With the help of Roger and Brea doing historical research, they think they have found Jamie alive in Scotland and working as a printer.
And so this book takes Claire through the stones once again and back to Jamie (at long last!). It also gives us insight to some of the events that happened to them during their 20 year seperation;
Jamie after the war held up in a cave for 7 years, him being a prisoner at Ardsmuir and then a ...more
- Jamie and Claire’s reunion
- Jamie’s third person POV, including what happened to him during the years of their separation
- Lord John Grey’s role in Jamie’s life
- The hunt for the hidden treasure
- Information about time-travel
- A prophecy is told
- A surprise character from Outlander returns.
The book had over-the-top angst with a series of coincidences, old acquaintances entering the story, and back-to-back obstacles. Jamie and Claire can’t see ...more
So...I seem to always have the unpopular opinion.
For me, the previous book, Dragonfly in Amber was a much more interesting read for me. I preferred all the quiet, emotional moments in DIA than the seemingly over-the-top adventures in the second half of Voyager. Not to say I didn't still devour this book like a starving man.
As with the first book, I found myself being extremely frustrated with Claire throughout Voyager. Constantly doubting Jaime when he has proven himself time and ...more
Once again, Gabaldon doesn't disappoint. She has a talent for characterization and is a stellar storyteller, there is no doubt about it. Once again, she takes us on a fabulous adventure through times ...more
My favorite part was of course when Claire finally traveled back to Scotland - although it was 20 years later!! That part I didn't like, those 20 years they will never get back and they seem the most important in their lives. I acutally really liked the begin ...more

At the end of Dragonfly in Amber, Claire realizes that Jamie didn't die at Culloden so Claire, Roger and Brianna decide to research and see what information they can come up with.
