9277 I am also reading it now for the first time. It is great so far!

I had read Outlander and Dragonfly in Amber many years ago and have re-read both of them recently. It's exciting for me to not be able to anticipate what's going to happen! I can't believe how addicted I'm becoming to these books.... :)
9277 I am about 130 pages from the end of the book, but I cannot think of anything I would change at this point. However, I must admit that the war details are dragging me down a bit.... :)

I agree - I love Fergus! He is my favorite. I can just picture this small boy with such extreme loyalty - and wisdom beyond his years.

I am enjoying the historical aspect of the book very much, but I find that keeping up with all those French names is a bit daunting. :) Regardless of that, I like this book better than Outlander - it has really drawn me in and keeps me on the edge of my seat!
9277 I actually tried to start Voyager, but never finished it...not sure why. Nevertheless, my reading tastes have changed a lot since my younger years :), so I am looking forward to finishing the series this time!

Thanks for the welcome! I am actually rereading DIA (first time circa 1995?), but this is as far as I have gotten in the series. I would really like to finish it this time! :)
It isn't Roger that I find annoying, but Fiona. In fact, I think Roger is great! I have felt a bit sorry for him - especially in the scene where he is trying to take a bath! lol
9277 Having a granddaughter of Fiona's age, Mrs. Graham was obviously older than Fiona - and probably not in need of a husband. I am only about 70 pages into the book at the moment, but I have found Fiona to be just as annoying as Roger does. :) However, I am sure she will play a pivotal role in events to come.

Is it too late to join the group discussion? I've just started re-reading the book over the weekend and can't believe how hooked I've become! (I am on page 70 or so.) My first read was many years ago, so I had forgotten many of the events.

9277 A friend loaned Outlander and Dragonfly in Amber to me back in 1994(?). I finished both of them and started Voyager, but never finished it. I found Outlander for free on Kindle a few months back and picked it up, along with Dragonfly in Amber and Voyager. I plan to finish the series this time, although it may take me a while! :)
