OK, to those who've already Diana's work I'm not saying anything that they didn't already know, to those who have seen the authors name and not sure whether or not to take a chance, this is perhaps the review to help you make up your mind.
First of all I was new to Diana's writing when I was lent An Echo in the Bone. Yes I know, it was the seventh book in the series but the beauty and the story weaving was so exceptional that I had to go all the way back to the first book and read the series back to back.
As with Diana's other books, this latest title is a story of honour, love, battle and of course the development of roles for the characters within. The fact that Jamie Fraser makes a reappearance will more than please fans of the Outlander series as he gets back to doing what he does best. Add to this a seriously delicious storyline, cracking character development alongside prose that many will fall in love with alongside a masters understanding of pace and it's a book that is serious value for money. All I have to do now is set up a guard to protect my copy from a certain parent who's already setting her sights on it.
