With her now-classic novel Outlander, Diana Gabaldon introduced two unforgettable characters — Claire Randall and Jamie Fraser — delighting readers with a story of adventure and love that spanned two centuries. Now Gabaldon returns to that extraordinary time and place in this vivid, powerful follow-up to Outlander....

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....


From the Trade Paperback edition.

    "'James Alexander Malcolm Mackenzie Fraser', " she read aloud. "Yes, I know him." Her hand dropped lower, brushing back the grass that grew thickly about the stone, obscuring the line of smaller letters at its base.

    "'James Alexander Malcolm Mackenzie Fraser', " she read aloud. "Yes, I know him." Her hand dropped lower, brushing back the grass that grew thickly about the stone, obscuring the line of smaller letters at its base.

    " 'Beloved husband of Claire,' " she read."Yes, I knew him," she said again, so softly Roger could scarcely hear her. "I'm Claire. He was my husband." She looked up then, into the face of her daughter, white and shocked above her. "And your father," she said.

    Me ha sorprendido.

    Tratándose de una 2ª parte pensé que bajaría el nivel, pero la autora ha conseguido mantenerlo muy dignamente a la altura de Forastera.

    Así que me ha encantado, como en el anterior, algunos pasajes transcurren algo más lentos pero, en general, el libro engancha mucho y no salimos de una misión que ya nos estamos aventurando en otra.

    En esta entrega baja un poco el ritmo de acción, pero disfrutamos más de la relación entre Claire y Jamie. Y, como de costumbre, suceden miles de cosas.

    El escenario cambia a menudo y pasamos de los entresijos palaciegos en la corte de París, a la tranquilidad de las Tierras Altas en Lalybroch, la gestación de la guerra en Edimburgo y el sinvivir de la guerra hasta llegar a la famosa batalla de Culloden.

    Una maravilla.

    Segona part de la saga Outlander (la primera es diu Forastera), aquesta fantàstica novel·la torna a seduir-te des de les primeres línies. Barreja de novel·la d'aventures, històrica i romàntica té tots els ingredients necessaris per atrapar-te des del principi i deixar-te amb ganes de continuar llegint la tercera part. Tot i que m'ha encantat, trobo que la part de les intrigues polítiques que van culminar en la batalla de Culloden és una mica complicada de seguir.

    Absolutament recomanable!
