The Outlander series is one of a kind. They are so well written. I haven't been this obsessed since I found Philippa Gregory. If you haven't had the pleasure of losing yourself to the Jacobite cause and the plight of those braw Scots, you have absolutely no idea what you've been missing. Pick one up and step through the stones for the best read of your life.

Into the Dark is the last book in the Legend of the Great Horse trilogy. As our journey with Meagan comes to a very unanticipated end, the story continues to capture the imagination and emotions as well, if not better than the first two books. The story is swarming with revelations, history, action and (finally) a bit of romance. We even get a glimpse into a very unappealing and suppressed possible future.
First lines: The floor rolled sharply and Meagan fell hard against a wall. A tide of cold water sloshed over her feet. All around in the darkness were piercing screams of horses and the thudding concussion of hooves.
