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.

Read all of Gabaldon's stuff before this one

First off, Davina Porter is hands down my favorite voice ever, no contest. I'm tempted to buy other audio she has done just to listen to a masterful voice actress. As far as Echo goes, I enjoyed it as much as any other Outlander book to date. I have an understanding that this feels like a transitional book (because Jamie and Claire can't live forever) but the character development of Roger, Brianna, Jeremiah and William are comforting for a potential new series. The thing I appreciate the most is an extremely long story that has such vivid detail and picks up and answers questions that may have been left in past outlander books. I actually get a little sad when the book is done because I know it will be some time before another new work is released. Thanks Diana and Davina!!

ECHO Was Worth Waiting For

The design on the book cover is intentional. There are 4 storylines that weave throughout the book: Jamie and Claire's continuing adventures in the midst of the American Revolution; Lord John and his son, who are on the British side; Roger and Brianna and their children; and Ian. The story lines converge and separate, with a lot of cliffhangers at the end, which will obviously be concluded in the next, and possibly last book of the series. I strongly urge new readers to first read both the earlier "Outlander" books and at least the "Brotherhood of the Blade" about Lord John Grey. Most are in unabridged audiobook form -- only "The Fiery Cross" and "A Breath of Snow and Ashes" have yet to be released [contract reasons] "Echo" is less a stand-alone than the other books, although Gabaldon does provide backstory.

Davina Porter does her usual wonderful job with the narration and the voices. She really gets Jamie and Claire perfectly, along with the subsidiary characters. "Echo" has been long awaited, and lives up to the expectations.

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.

Endlessly entertaining

I still boggle at Diana Gabaldon's ability to impart so much detail: historic, intimate, broad and visceral but more than this, engrossing.
Davina Porter is just brilliant! Each character holds an absolutely individual voice signature. I don't know how she does it but I'm totally convinced by it throughout.
I love these books. I usually don't last beyond half way through the third book of a series due to a lack of...something. Not the case here. I'm going straight to the next one now.

More light hearted sci fi/historical fiction fun

Another fun volume in the Outlander series full of the usual sex, romance, violence, overt Scottishness supported with detailed historical research. A guilty pleasure!
