Review: Dragonfly in Amber (Outlander Series Book 2)

4 Stars

By: Diana Galbadon

This is the second book in a series.


However, must admit, this one was not as well written as the first book–Outlander. (That’s why it only received a four-star rating from me.)

The story was fine…the writing was…difficult. The author switched from third to first person narrative, back and forth, sometimes in the same paragraph… it was odd and unsettling. Grammar usage was also sometimes really…wrong. And, I found several misspelled words. Once she even switched character names calling one character by another’s name. That took me a moment to sort out! It was, as I said before, unsettling. I don’t know who the editor was, for this book, but I hope the author fired him/her.

HOWEVER…I worked through the problems because I love this story, these characters and this series with a passion.

The Outlander series as a whole has been so engaging! I love these characters and the story line and find myself more and more deeply in love with it all with each page I turn.


Read this book–Dragonfly in Amber–try to overlook the editing problems, and go on to the next. You’ll be so glad you did!
