The Fiery Cross (Outlander, Book 5) Kindle Edition
|New from||Used from|
“A grand adventure written on a canvas that probes the heart, weighs the soul and measures the human spirit across [centuries].”—CNN
The year is 1771, and war is coming. Jamie Fraser’s wife tells him so. Little as he wishes to, he must believe it, for hers is a gift of dreadful prophecy—a time-traveler’s certain knowledge.
Born in the year of Our Lord 1918, Claire Randall served England as a nurse on the battlefields of World War II, and in the aftermath of peace found fresh conflicts when she walked through a cleftstone on the Scottish Highlands and found herself an outlander, an English lady in a place where no lady should be, in a time—1743—when the only English in Scotland were the officers and men of King George’s army.
Now wife, mother, and surgeon, Claire is still an outlander, out of place, and out of time, but now, by choice, linked by love to her only anchor—Jamie Fraser. Her unique view of the future has brought him both danger and deliverance in the past; her knowledge of the oncoming revolution is a flickering torch that may light his way through the perilous years ahead—or ignite a conflagration that will leave their lives in ashes.

DG is a talented and flawless writer but this book was mostly about the day-to-day minutiae that bored me to tears. I kept reading because I’m invested in Jamie and Claire. Their relationship is engaging and while these two have settled into daily life…the chemistry is still very much alive.
“Sorcha,” he whispered, and realized that he had called her so a moment before. Now, that was odd; no wonder she had been surprised. It was her name in Gaelic, but he never called her by it. He liked the strangeness of her, the Englishness. She was his Claire, his Sassenach.
However, there were things in the story I didn’t care about, Jemmy being one of them and Brianna’s lactating breasts were another. I simply did not care for Jemmy’s baby talk and I love kids in stories but I all I wanted to do was stick a pacifier in his mouth! Don’t even get me started on Brianna’s hardening breasts. Yes, I said hardening. *eye-roll* I’m thinking DG must have been pregnant when she wrote this story.
It was so frustrating. Frustrating because it was 1,400 pages!!! Nothing was happening, so much trivial crap I didn’t care about was explained and I couldn’t figure out where the plot was hiding, it felt as though I was searching for Waldo!!! But it did get better. The second half was slow to get going as well but that eventually changed around the 60’ish % mark.
With that being said, even though there were moments that I loved with great dialogue that only DG can deliver, the story still felt disjointed and boring. *heavy sigh* For those of you that want to read The Fiery Cross…hang in there because it is a tough book to finish but I’m glad I did and the last 10% of the book was AUH-MAZING!! That ending left me with so many questions but I think that’ll be answered in the next book. And based on what I’ve heard, A Breath of Snow and Ashes (Outlander #6) makes up for what The Fiery Cross lacked.

The only reason I persevered, was that I might miss something important to the story, and oh boy, what a crawl through treacle that was.
Even Claire and Jamie were getting on my nerves. Grammar is getting slapdash too!
Good Lord! In book 6.....horror.......Diana writes it and Claire says it....Hippo Potami! What on earth?
Ms Gabaldon writes Gaelic, French, Latin, etc, but does not appear to know that one does not start a word with a Greek root and finish it off Latin!
Claire is well educated and well read, she would never come up with Such a mistake!
Btw. What does all the breast feeding have to do with time travel? This book is an unforgivable waste of time!
On a practical note as others have said - the book falls apart!! Open it too widely and pages pop out!!
I had not expected, when I picked up the first book of the series, that I would love it as much as I do. And yet here I am, having read five of the books in under a month.
They're just really bloody good.
