3.5 stars

mmm mixed feelings towards this one. I loved some parts, I hated others.

Jamie... I couldn't care for him as much as I would have liked. Claire was fine, a versatile character, so strong and I loved the fact that she knew so much about herbs and their healing properties and could help anyone with that. Dougal was a perfectly crafted character, as was Murtagh (I guess that was the name).

The dialogues were great and the premise is very interesting. However, I am not a fan of the cruelty (of those times) that was depicted sometimes in crude ways. No need to say that Randall is a sick pervert and the whole situation between him and Jamie is disgusting.

The end was somehow predictable but still I am curious to see what happens next. So... book 2... here I go!

P.S: proper review when I gather my thoughts
