Four extraordinary stories featuring characters from the bestselling Outlander series.
From the Inside Flap
Trails of tracer bullets, and the fiery trail of a wounded Spitfire falling out of the sky.
The burning of plantations in a Jamaican night, in a trail leading down from the mountains, straight toward Kingstown.
The trail blazed by night by the handful of heroic Highlanders who fought their way straight up a vertical cliff to stand on the Plains of Abraham in a fiery dawn.
And the trail of a torch burning green, through the eerie surrounds of a Parisian cemetery, down into the mysteries of the earth.
Four tales from Diana Gabaldon, each set in a different time and place - from Paris before the Revolution to London during the Blitz, from the West Indies in the grip of slavery to Quebec at the height of the French and Indian War - and yet each one a fiery thread in the warp and weft of the epic story that began in Scotland in 1945, when Claire Randall first touched a boulder in an ancient stone circle and was hurled back in time...--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I was unhappy with the use of the words 'whyever' and 'suchly' because I don't think they are words! I laughed out loud at my misunderstanding at another point 'Tom.....sprang up like a frog onto hands and knees, scrabbling madly for pistol and shot in the chest'. I thought for a moment that Tom (who I rather like) had been shot in the chest!
Diana Gabaldon explains the way she has fitted her stories between other stories or books very clearly. She appears to be delighted with the 'bulges', where she can nip backwards and forwards in time(!) inserting a novella here or a short story there to fit between her books. Many of the reviews of her other works make it clear that readers are more interested, or even only interested, in continuing the stories of Jamie and Claire and family or Lord John. I think this is worth taking into account.
This all sounds rather critical but I did quite enjoy the book, it just did not have the magic of the main Outlander books. I did see at the end that a follow on to 'Echo in the Bone' called 'Written in My Own Heart's Blood' is due to be published, hopefully in 2013. I tried straight-away to order this but although two further novels appear (unnamed) on Amazon, neither is available to order now on kindle. This is a shame because I only read on kindle now and would have liked to secure the next book while the title was fresh in my mind.Read more ›
There are so many little golden nuggets of information in "The Space Between" which both clarify what the reader already believes about time travel and at the same time leaves us with even more questions than we had before. I had no doubt that I would love the characters of Michael and Joan after reading about them in Echo in the Bone but I adored the way they had characteristics of their relevant family members but were at the same time people in their own right. I'm really looking forward to the next "big book" to find out what happens to the two of them. However the biggest surprise in this story was the Comte who I was thoroughly expecting to be a nasty piece of work but who ended up being a quite likeable person even though he was obviously the king of manipulation and selfishness! We really need to know more about this man!
I'm attempting to write something myself, and I fluctuate beween soaring inspiration to write like this, and the depths of depression that i will never be this good!
