I bought this book because someone said it was similar to the Gabaldon's Outlander series.
There is NO comparison. I could go on for hours about the differences but I'm so upset by this book I can't organize my thoughts. For me, this book is a Wallbanger -- the kind of book I would throw against the wall for just for existing.

Not Outlander at all! AVOID!

The only word I can use to describe this book is AWFUL!!! There was something (an advertisement) on Facebook that said if you love Outlander, you'll love this series. If you're here because you are a huge Outlander fan who also read that, RUN AWAY!

The writing is childish at best and the narration reminds me of a 2nd grade teacher reading to her class in that slow way, with long pauses, and crappy character voices that get mixed up often.

The plot is thin and greatly predictable. It's just so very bad. I kept listening hoping it would pick up and that the author would start to write like a grown up writer. Never happened. I read on her website that she is committed to writing a new book for her fans every year. It shows that these books take less than a year to write. Gabaldon takes 2-4 years to turn out a book and that shows with deep, dynamic characters and a wonderful plot and storyline that follows with history in a way that brings it all to life. This series by Dye falls so very short from that standard we expect as fans of Outlander.

Whoever thought that comparing these books to Outlander would be a clever way to sell books was a fool. However, it is a great way to get several bad reviews from angry Outlander fans who wasted a credit on this false comparison.
