Format: Paperback
The third in a series of exceptionally well written time travel, adventure/romance books by the author, it tells a gripping and highly entertaining tale. There are five such novels published to date in what is hoped to be a series of six books. I urge the interested reader to start at the beginning and read each and every one. Do not be daunted by the length. Trust me when I say that you will wish that they were longer, so riveting a story does the author unfold. A masterful storyteller, the author employs the superlative use of historical events and period detail to weave an engaging three dimensional tapestry of timeless love and adventure. While the core of the story is about a love that transcends time, it is, however, much more than that. It is an adventure story that grips the reader from beginning to end and is positively addictive!
The love that spans time is that which twentieth century Englishwoman, Claire Randall, has for eighteenth century Scottish highlands warrior, James Fraser. Those readers who have read the first book in the series, "Outlander", know that in 1945, Claire, a combat nurse during World War II, is reunited with her husband, Frank, after the war. While on a second honeymoon in Scotland, she visits a strange, flat topped hill, where a forbidding stone circle draws her. Touching one of the stones, she is hurled through a vortex in time and finds herself in eighteenth century Scotland, where she meets a brave and brawny, red headed Scot, James Fraser, with whom she falls head over heels in love. Finding herself thrust into the midst of clan warfare and intrigue, she and her beloved 'Jamie' have enough adventures to last a lifetime.

Format: Paperback
I was fortunate when I first started reading Diana Gabaldon's intriguing series; fortunate, I say, because the first three books were already available, so I didn't suffer quite so terribly from Claire and Jamie withdrawal. From the moment I picked up "Outlander" I knew that I was reading what perhaps in time will (and should) become the standard for romance, although it is erroneous to categorize Gabaldon's works as simply being "romance". The ongoing saga of the Frasers is enjoyable regardless of what genre you prefer. Diana is just that good. But I digress...
In the third installment of the series, Doctor Claire Randall is vacationing in 1968 Scotland when she discovers that her husband, Jamie Fraser, who she thought was killed during the battle of Culloden, has in fact survived and is alive and well...in 1765. With the aid of their daughter, Brianna, and young historian Roger Wakefield, Claire arranges for the most difficult--and the most rewarding--undertaking of her life: reuniting with Jamie after twenty years of separation.

Full of surprising twists as well as the emotional depth and historical accuracy one has come to expect from Diana Gabaldon, "Voyager" is a novel that stands on its own, which is how a good novel is written, whether or not it is part of a series!!! And if you missed Tino Georgiou's--The Fates--I strongly recommend reading it.

I really enjoyed the first part of this book. It had everything I wanted upon finishing Dragonfly in Amber - pain, angst and heartache, all leaving you brimming with excitement at the prospect of Claire and Jamie’s reunion.

Yet after the reunion, the whole thing falls flat. There’s a lot of focus on a lackluster plot and weird, unlikely situations. I know the novel is based on time travel which is of course weird and unlikely, but the previous books have always had a certain sense of being grounded in reality. Now they seem to be running around a ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ movie and encountering voodoo magic and men with crocodile heads. There are a few new dodgy characters introduced – Mr Willoughby, a racially stereotyped Chinese male, is the Jar Jar Binks of the outlander series and I’m still not really sure what the point of him was.

My biggest problem with the book is that after all the character exploration and development of the first half, there’s no emotional pay off during the second. A lot has obviously changed but it’s frustratingly never really dealt with. When Claire discovers one of Jaime’s secrets while they’re at Lallybroch (a secret which he has actively worked to deceive her of by sending prior word to make sure nobody mentions it), it’s only a matter of pages before all is forgiven. I just get the impression that Claire feels Jamie is so perfect and loves her so much that it doesn’t matter what he’s done. A bit more anger and resentment would have been much more riveting and realistic than quiet acceptance that always seems to end with her cradling his head in her lap.

Despite the problems, I didn’t sleep much until I’d finished the book. This series is definitely addicting and engrossing; characterisation has always been a huge strength of these books and I’m sure I’ll give the next novel a shot to find out what happens to everyone.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The 3rd in the series, and still I can't get enough! My heart beat with Claire's as she's walking into Carfax Close, my tears fall with hers and Jamie's as they look-together-at Bree's pictures, my heart and my body ache as they reunite... and as much as 20 years can change a person, it seems at least for these 2 characters, they are still the same. I cried tears of joy when Fergus drops to his knees, and she realizes who it is, and how , even though he's 20 years older, he is still the same to her. Travel, more adventure than I thought possible, Great Joy and Deep Sadness... what can I say? Diana, you did it again! A definite must have for Gabaldon fans. Thanks for letting me share my opinion.
