Reviews

  • "Gripping."

    OK!
  • "The sixth instalment of the adventures of Claire and Jamie Fraser, already number one on the bestseller list, is a whopping 980 pages of action-packed escapism. It also has surprisingly melancholy and insightful views on the experience of growing old and dealing with the losses that entails... One of the things that sets Gabaldon apart from other romance writers is exhaustive research of the times in which her characters live, so evident in her attention to period detail.... plot lines and stand-alone yarns are expertly woven together with the overall theme of impending doom and the question of predetermination."

    The Toronto Star
  • "Fans of Diana Gabaldon's popular Outlander series have another rousing historical-science-fiction-romance novel to savour in A Breath of Snow and Ashes... For fans, this book is another slam-dunk hit. It's a massive, long-lasting source of entertainment."

    The Gazette (Montreal)
  • "Riveting. Gabaldon has a true storyteller's voice."

    The Globe and Mail
  • "Triumphant. . . . Her use of historical detail and truly adult love story confirm Gabaldon as a superior writer."
