“One thing is for sure… No one can write like Diana Gabaldon can.”
~ Under the Covers

Continuing the epic saga of Jamie and Claire, THE FIERY CROSS is rife with the trials and tribulations of our favorite characters. Gabaldon keeps things interesting with the various twists that occur in this book. However, my favorite aspect of this book has to be the small, intimate family moments sprinkled throughout. It’s not a strange notion, especially now with five books in the series that the characters feel a lot like family to the reader. If you’re anything like me, you love and there are even moments where you hate them. However, no matter what you feel like you already know them. So as Gabaldon explores the lives of the others like Brianna and Rogers, etc, everyone becomes one big family by the end.

I’ve been in the mood for epic romance sages. After trying and enjoying THE BRONZE HORSEMAN, I went straight into this one and found that Gabaldon’s writing style and voice can be considered a character itself. There’s so many layers to her writing and the attention to detail in each scene is all due to the amount of research she does for these books. I read somewhere that it takes her 2-3 years to write one of these books and it amazes me because I can only assume that the writing journey is just as long and consuming as the books are for readers. One thing is for sure… No one can write like Diana Gabaldon can.

Favorite Quote:

“Bedding her could be anything from tenderness to riot, but to take her when she was a bit the worse for drink was always a particular delight.

Intoxicated, she took less care for him than usual; abandoned and oblivious to all but her own pleasure, she would rake him, bite him – and beg him to serve her so, as well.

He loved the feeling of power in it, the tantalizing choice between joining her at once in animal lust, or of holding himself-for a time- in check, so as to drive her at his whim.”

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!

Thanks for the review, I started book 2 but put it down because I wasn’t happy how it started. (It really pissed me off actually but I think I’m over my snit and ready to give it another go.)

Ah, Amy. Don’t worry. There are plenty of times where I have been mad or upset with many of the things that happen in this series. But the characters for me have made me want to read on. I’ve grown attached to them and need to know where they end up.
