** spoiler alert ** Voyager is not the best book in this series so far. I had a couple problems with it. One, how many crazy, outlandish, unlikely, dangerous adventers can one couple get in and out of in a few months time? Really. Just one adventure to another. These people never get a break. Two, the whole series of events where Claire finds out Jamie remarried, runs away, comes back and eventually forgives Jamie's sister for sending her away. All of her reactions seem very uncaracteristic of Claire. The scene where she forgives the sister for trying to break them up is just unrealistic; it left a bad taste for me.

Overall, though, it was great to see Claire and Jamie reunited. This book feels like it serves the same purpose as the second movie in a trilogy, just a means to get to the next place and keep the story going. If you plan on reading the rest of the series, you just have to get through it.
