I am a very ardent Diana Gabaldon fan; she is the author of the Outlander series of books, a multi-genre series that encompasses the epic, history, bloodshed and love for the everyday person. It is some heavy reading as Gabaldon is notorious for being wordy (her last book, A Breath of Snow and Ashes was almost 1500 pages); however, the action starts from the first page and goes non-stop until the last page. I highly recommend the series and the latest installment of the series will likely be out in September/October of 2009. It is entitled An Echo in the Bone. If you have not picked up one of Gabaldon’s books, I highly recommend you do, especially if you read a lot and a mere 400 pages is just not enough.
