 ~AD 1019 Ancient Finland ~ 

Jaakko's obsessive hunt for the monster that killed his wife and son falters. When rumors reach him of a burned Mage who wields unheard of Power, the huntsman seeks him, determined to beg for magic that will bring down the beast. 

Aila waits in growing fear as she watches her beloved Wyman fall under Eyulf's sway. When a plan to free him goes awry, a confrontation with the Mage gives him knowledge he should never have learned and ends in the shedding of innocent blood.

Avitus prepares Wyman's kingdom for war even as he tries to keep the King's growing madness from his warriors. As the threat of invasion grows closer, his desperation leads the Steward to seek help.

He hires Karhu to find the secret of the invader's uncanny skill in battle. Her guise as a displaced heir to a kingdom ends in failure and she finds herself wrapped up in treachery and accused of murder.

Erkki, a skilled and thriving Smith, agrees to work with Eyulf in the forging of some special gifts. The Mage imbues the metal with Rune-Song as the Smith's uneasiness with the Mage's erratic behavior grows.

The strands of Eyulf's lies pull tighter around them all.

Book 8
#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY BOOKLIST

In her now classic novel Outlander, Diana Gabaldon told the story of Claire Randall, an English ex-combat nurse who walks through a stone circle in the Scottish Highlands in 1946, and disappears . . . into 1743. The story unfolded from there in seven bestselling novels, and CNN has called it “a grand adventure written on a canvas that probes the heart, weighs the soul and measures the human spirit across [centuries].” Now the story continues in Written in My Own Heart’s Blood.
 
1778: France declares war on Great Britain, the British army leaves Philadelphia, and George Washington’s troops leave Valley Forge in pursuit. At this moment, Jamie Fraser returns from a presumed watery grave to discover that his best friend has married his wife, his illegitimate son has discovered (to his horror) who his father really is, and his beloved nephew, Ian, wants to marry a Quaker. Meanwhile, Jamie’s wife, Claire, and his sister, Jenny, are busy picking up the pieces.
 
The Frasers can only be thankful that their daughter Brianna and her family are safe in twentieth-century Scotland. Or not. In fact, Brianna is  searching for her own son, who was kidnapped by a man determined to learn her family’s secrets. Her husband, Roger, has ventured into the past in search of the missing boy . . . never suspecting that the object of his quest has not left the present. Now, with Roger out of the way, the kidnapper can focus on his true target: Brianna herself.
 
Written in My Own Heart’s Blood is the brilliant next chapter in a masterpiece of the imagination unlike any other.

Praise for Written in My Own Heart’s Blood
 
“[Written in My Own Heart’s Blood] features all the passion and swashbuckling that fans of this historical fantasy series have come to expect.”—People
 
“Another breakneck, rip-roaring, oh-so-addictive page-turner from Gabaldon . . . Take a deep breath, jump aboard, and enjoy the ride.”—Library Journal

“With her Outlander series, Gabaldon . . . successfully [juggles] a sizable and captivating cast of characters; developing thrilling plotlines that borrow equally from adventure, history, and romance; and meticulously integrating a wealth of fascinating period details into the story without slowing down the pace. The result is a sprawling and enthralling saga that is guaranteed to keep readers up long past their bedtimes.”—Booklist (starred review)
