The Fiery Cross is the fifth book in Arizona (woot) author Diana Gabaldon’s time-traveling historical fiction saga. I have enjoyed all the books up until this one, some with reservations, but still enjoyed. They all felt like they had strong backbones, and even though they were long, most of the stuff stuffed up in there had a point.

The dazzling fifth volume of Diana Gabaldon sextraordinary Outlander saga, featuring 18th-century Scotsman James Fraser and his 20th-century time-traveling wife, Claire Randall. The Fiery Cross is just as spellbinding as the books leading up to it in this saga, and the writing is so gripping and transports the reader to that place in time. She has the ability to describe people and events in the mind's eye - the main characters are so loveable, and you can visualize the people, places, and times.

I have been reading this series and saw the first two seasons on Starz - loved that, as well as the books leading up to this one. I have not finished this one but must say I am feeling bogged down by too many details, characters and side-stories. I feel ALL of the Outlander books could use a good bit of editing to pare them down. I think much could be edited out and still have wonderful stories. In The Fiery Cross, I find myself skipping through bits because it is just too, too much sometimes! I do feel Starz has done a terrific job with the TV series and the tendency to get frustrated when things drag because of the excess detail in the books won't stop me from reading them. I just don't understand why an editor wouldn't automatically cut out some of the detail and condense the length. Even holding the books is a chore because they are just too dang thick for comfort! (part 1 and part 2 would be an excellent idea!) That being said, I may change my mind as I get further into the book; have read only the first one-quarter. And don't get me wrong: I AM a fan!.

I desperately wanted to give The Fiery Cross 4 glowing stars but I couldn’t. When I say that I’m in love with this series, I mean it but this book failed in delivering the excitement we’ve come to expect from Diana Gabaldon.

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 story is good because of course it’s by Diana Gabaldon. I’ve read all of the books, this is my 4th time! I like listening because many of the Gaelic phrases and names I don’t know how to pronounce so it’s nice to hear them instead of guessing what they sound like. The reader is excellent. I would recommend this series to anyone and everyone-I know many man who love the adventure and the history. If something is presented of the events taking place in the time period-riots, plagues, uprisings, political happenings, and more-it happened, I’ve checked. Even the most obscure thing that only a historian studying that time period would know, happened. Love, lots of steamy sex, humor, tenderness, violence, adventure on land and sea, magic, believable characters, this series has it all. If you’re not a reader, if you spend many hours in your car driving from call to call, if you’re a busy homemaker, anyone who doesn’t have time to sit and read, get the audio. I have the book too.

i enjoyed the first few books but now the plots are becoming redundant and the outcomes predictable. I LOVE the story of Jaimie and Claire but find it hard to believe that Claire would leave Jaimie for 20 years and stay with Frank. Diana would like us to believe that Claire didn't know Jaimie still lives. They are Soul Mates, Claire would feel him and discover what Frank learned that Jaimie lives and she'd go back through the Stones with Brianna much, much sooner. It doesn't make sense that Claire, an independent, strong minded woman would stay with Frank. Just doesn't ring true. OK, so it's 20 years later, Claire returns to Jaime and now, Diana wants us to believe that Jaimie and Claire can still sleep under the stars, tramp through forests, continue to rough it and not feel their ages of 40+? I was in excellent shape in my 40's, and throughout but I no longer went camping without some comforts that I didn't use in my 20's. Roger and Brianna are OK characters but they aren't charismatic or as wonderful a love story as, Jaimie and Claire. Actually, I'm not that thrilled with Brianna and can't imagine why Roger is so in love with her. Glad so many people like this series but I'm done.

I suppose a story wouldn't be so interesting if their weren't so many near misses, tragic endings, and being involved in just about anything that was anything during the time period, but to also be well accomplished in every endeavor in just the nick of time. Yes, it's the continuation of the story from all the previous novels and I would like to read how this ends but it is becoming too predictable and the writing lacked some of the previous finesse and even on various occasions a few paragraphs would be written to accurately describe the work, scene, or character machinations to only spend another quantity of paragraphs to give us another iteration of the same thing. While this was an entertaining read of the saga, I was also disappointed with the writing.
