Goodreads Description: For twenty years Claire Randall has kept her secrets. But now she is returning with her grown daughter to Scotland’s majestic mist-shrouded hills. Here Claire plans to reveal a truth as stunning as the events that gave it birth: about the mystery of an ancient circle of standing stones…about a love that transcends the boundaries of time…and about James Fraser, a Scottish warrior whose gallantry once drew a young Claire from the security of her century to the dangers of his ….
Now a legacy of blood and desire will test her beautiful copper-haired daughter, Brianna, as Claire’s spellbinding journey of self-discovery continues in the intrigue-ridden Paris court of Charles Stuart …in a race to thwart a doomed Highlands uprising…and in a desperate fight to save both the child and the man she loves….
I finished this book a few days ago and I’m so glad that I am done with this. When I first started this book, I really loved it. As the book went on, I didn’t really enjoy it anymore. I just wanted to finish the book and get it over with. I certain expectations with this book that were not met. I though that the book was going to go back and forth from Claire in the present time to when Claire was with Jaime. That didn’t happen sadly. 95% of the book was Claire back with Jamie.
There is way too much detail and useless information. If all of that information was cut, the book would have been a lot shorter.
I was so fed up with the book, I skipped 15 chapters and read the last chapter. I had heard that there was a cliffhanger at the end of Dragonfly that would make you want to read Voyager as soon as possible. I read that so called “cliffhanger” and wasn’t impressed. It was predictable and it doesn’t make me want to read Voyager.
There are times that I wish that I hadn’t read Dragonfly in Amber. In a way, I think that it ruined the Outlander series for me. I am taking a break from this series and will be picking up Voyager in a few months. My rating for this book is 2 out of 5 stars.
