My Fav. Author has a NEW book out and I Can't Put It Down
the Outlander novels,
and An Echo in the Bone
An Echo in the Bone is the seventh novel in the wildly popular, NYT #1 bestselling, internationally award-winning Outlander series—described by Salon.com as "the smartest historical sci-fi adventure-romance ever written by a science Ph.D. with a background in scripting Scrooge McDuck comic books."
The striking thing on the cover is a caltrop (and not, as one wit suggested to me, a Celtic chicken-foot).
You see that the caltrop has four tines? Well, there are four storylines in this book, past and future, welded together by the heat of the American Revolution—and every one of 'em has a sharp point.
I love these books and was surprised when Hubby brought it home for me, this is her 7th in the series and I have all of them now. This Winter when we are snowed in I'll re-read them but for now I've got my nose buried in this one.
Have any of you read any of these? What do you think of them?
