The Fiery Cross by Diana Gabaldon

The year is 1771, and war is coming. Jamie Fraser’s wife tells him so. Little as he wishes to, he must believe it, for hers is a gift of dreadful prophecy—a time-traveler’s certain knowledge. Claire’s unique view of the future has brought him both danger and deliverance in the past; her knowledge of the oncoming revolution is a flickering torch that may light his way through the perilous years ahead—or ignite a conflagration that will leave their lives in ashes.
Once again Diana Gabaldon shares with us the world of Claire and Jamie, now settled on the Ridge, their life takes on a different turn, as grandparents. But life on the ridge isn't as peaceful as they hope it to be.
 
I have been in LOVE with this series since I read the description of it on Amazon two years ago, the first three I read in just a couple days, COULD NOT put them down. But once the fourth book came out, things went down fast. Curiosity still won over and I still keep reading, but I can't wait till it's over.
 
This book has so far been the worst book in the series, for me at least. It took me over two years to finish it. I put it down and didn't pick it up for a long time. I just couldn't do it. There was too much unnecessary information and detail that blinded the main story. I don't even know what the main story was, there was nothing interesting going on in this book, only preparations and political choices. I understand that we have been with these characters for years now, but do we still need to hear about their sex life. Over and over again. Don't get me wrong I still love this series, but it is just wayyy too long. 
I would still recommend this book to everyone who started this series, and everyone should start reading Outlander right now. Because this is the best series ever.
