Once again there are many similarities to the Outlander Saga by Diana Gabaldon. It's sort of like Ms. Belfrage used OUTLANDER as a guide for her storytelling...taking a few scenes from that fabulous saga and then changes it up a bit. Even so, I'm addicted to this saga... enough that I must continue with the fifth book. I love Alex Graham...she's smart and intelligent....sassy and saucy....stubborn, opinionated and perky. She's a real spitfire on two legs --- ready to take on the world and anything else that stands in her way. This installment held a lot of suspense balanced nicely with victory. There is humor as well as sadness and grief that made me bawl buckets of snot filled tissues. The dialogue is witty and nicely balanced with narration. I only wish there was more about Ian, but you cannot have it all I guess. If you are looking for a story of epic proportions; of historical facts intertwined with romance and fictitious characters (and a few historical correct characters as well..)..then begin at the beginning... (although Ms. Belfrage adeptly brings us up-to-date with each installment....this third installment could easily stand alone).
For those of you that have as yet not read Ms Belfrage’s excellent saga, I can only say “What are you waiting for?”. Ms Belfrage provides enough back-story in each book to ensure it works as a stand-alone, but I would recommend reading all of them – they’re all so good! Personally, I fell in love with Matthew already some books back, and even if he at times drives me crazy by retreating into an overbearing 17th century man, I forgive him for it – it’s impossible not to. The strength of the saga lies in the fantastic portrayal of both Matthew and Alex. They have strengths and weaknesses, likeable and less likeable traits, but what always shines through is their love for each other, their passion, their dependency on each other.
Not only does Ms Belfrage give us characters to love and care for, she also delivers a good story. Personally, I love the time-travelling aspects of this series, and while saying too much would be something of a spoiler, I just loved how Ms Belfrage reintroduced a character from previous books in this one. It is also interesting to note that by now I’m quite convinced it is possible to paint time portals through time, so credible do I find Ms Belfrage’s depictions…
As always when I get to the end of one of Ms Belfrage’s books I am SO glad there are more books to come. I’ve already bought the next instalment & can’t wait to read it.
