The third book the Outlander series sets in where the second one left off. We, and Claire, now know that Jamie survived Culloden and they attempt to find out what happened to him after Claire left through the stones.
When Brianna and Claire locate a time and place where Jamie was very likely to be, Claire begins thinking about returning to him. Having made up her mind, she goes back through the stones and makes her way to Edinburgh where Jamie supposedly works as a printer by the name of Alexander Malcolm. Will she find him? What has happened to him in the 20 years they were apart. Has he remarried and forgotten about her? Will she have a place by his side? And if she has, what will life be like…
Voyager is as well written as the first two books. Diana Gabaldon takes the readers on a fantastic journey through Scotland, France and other parts of the earth. The surprising return of well known characters (which I have no idea of how the tv show will manage in a plausible way), the introduction of new friends, information about Jamie’s and Claire’s life in the 20 years they spent apart and an adventure that just won’t let you put the book down make this book a joy to read. I laughed, I cried but I always had my eyes glued to the page, not wanting to put the book down. This is one of those book which you want to know about how it ends but you don’t want it to end at the same time. Luckily, this isn’t the last book in this series, so I will just have to wait until I can read Drums of Autumn.
I give this book 4,5 out of 5 possible little gold stars.
