Publisher's Summary

Diana Gabaldon's immensely popular Outlander saga soars to new heights with this seventh novel, which takes listeners on a breathtaking journey to 1777 America. Jamie Fraser knows from his time-traveling wife Claire that, no matter how unlikely it seems, America will win the Revolutionary War. But that truth offers little solace, since Jamie realizes he might find himself pointing a weapon directly at his own son - a young officer in the British army.
And Jamie isn't the only one with a tormented soul - for Claire may know who wins the conflict, but she certainly doesn't know whether or not her beloved Jamie survives.
Epic in scope and featuring a colorful cast that includes many legendary figures - including hero-turned-traitor Benedict Arnold and bawdy statesman Benjamin Franklin - An Echo in the Bone is a thrill from start to finish.

Another spellbinding tale, but unfinished!

Having read this latest rendering in the saga, I am left bereft! It seemed to finish in the middle of the book. I can't believe the author has left so many story lines only just started. Only one of the main characters has any closure. All the rest are left in some life threatening pickle. She has never done this before. Usually, although there are lots of loose ends, she at least leaves her main characters in some relative safety. This time all 6 are left suspended in mortal danger. I really feel cheated. Especially as most of the predicaments they are left in are only created in the last few chapters.

Wait for book 8 before buying this one

Four stars rather than five. Why?
Simply because we are left with too many lose ends. The characters have a LOT going on and then the book just ends.
What makes this worse is that book 8 isn't out until 2013 and I have no clue as to when the audiobook will be launched. It's a long wait. These books are so rich in characters that my concern is that now I run the risk of forgetting who's who during the wait for book 8.
The Outlander series is absolutely amazing and Davina Porter is frankly the best narrator I've ever listened to. She was thee perfect choice for these books.
Again, wait for book 8 before immersing yourself in book 7.
