Paul Lewis, a talented young artist, is haunted by visions of a vampire.

Paul is commissioned to illustrate a manuscript of the gospels at San Benedetto monastery, where he meets Brother Victor. He falls hard for the bold and arrogant brother, unaware that Victor is the vampire of his visions, a ruthless killer and Jesus’s former lover.

Victor initially resists his own attraction to Paul, but he is forced to make a choice when Paul witnesses Victor murder a monk: destroy Paul, or turn him into a thrall—a half-human, half-vampire creature completely dependent upon his creator. Unable to destroy him, Victor chooses the only other option.

Now it’s Paul’s turn to choose: remain Victor’s thrall or become a full vampire, knowing to become a vampire will release Victor from the realm of the living forever. But Paul’s visions are back, and they’re urging him to turn against the vampire he loves. Can Victor crush this power and conquer Paul before it’s too late?

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • NOW A STARZ ORIGINAL SERIES 

Unrivaled storytelling. Unforgettable characters. Rich historical detail. These are the hallmarks of Diana Gabaldon’s work. Her New York Times bestselling Outlander novels have earned the praise of critics and captured the hearts of millions of fans. Here is the story that started it all, introducing two remarkable characters, Claire Beauchamp Randall and Jamie Fraser, in a spellbinding novel of passion and history that combines exhilarating adventure with a love story for the ages.

One of the top ten best-loved novels in America, as seen on PBS’s The Great American Read!

Scottish Highlands, 1945. Claire Randall, a former British combat nurse, is just back from the war and reunited with her husband on a second honeymoon when she walks through a standing stone in one of the ancient circles that dot the British Isles. Suddenly she is a Sassenach—an “outlander”—in a Scotland torn by war and raiding clans in the year of Our Lord . . . 1743.

Claire is catapulted into the intrigues of a world that threatens her life, and may shatter her heart. Marooned amid danger, passion, and violence, Claire learns her only chance of safety lies in Jamie Fraser, a gallant young Scots warrior. What begins in compulsion becomes urgent need, and Claire finds herself torn between two very different men, in two irreconcilable lives.

This eBook includes the full text of the novel plus the following additional content:
• An excerpt from Diana Gabaldon’s Dragonfly in Amber, the second novel in the Outlander series 
• An interview with Diana Gabaldon 
• An Outlander reader’s guide

Praise for Outlander
