Can someone please tell me all the books in the Outlander series. I have ordered the first one, and I am really looking forward to reading it after all the good reviews!!! I wanted to go ahead and plan on getting the next one in the series too!

Thanks,

Jessica

Here you go:

1. Outlander

2. Dragonfly in Amber

3. Voyager

4. Drums of Autumn

5. The Fiery Cross

6. A Breath of Snow and Ashes

Book 7, An Echo in the Bone, is supposed to be out next year sometime.

You won't regret reading this series- it is fantastic!  However, these are not light reads, so be prepared for the volume of reading you will be doing!

Thank you very much! I actually prefer the longer ones...I get so wrapped up in the characters I am sad when they are over. :)

I started reading them after the 6th book had already been published - I don't know how anyone survived the wait between books! LOL    For me, once I started reading them, I had to read them all back to back - I couldn't wait to find out what happened next.

That was what I was worried about! I am new to PS and haven't gotten used to the whole waiting game just yet! :)

You might check Ebay or Half.com too Jessica.  I got the entire set in Hardback no less, on Ebay for a steal recently.

I WLed all of the Outlander books (all versions I could find) and I was amazed at how fast I got them.  I got offered the first book after only a few days on my WL.  Also - check your library!

Well, that's what I did, Jessica.  I have a good UBS here, and I manged to find all but one of the series there.  That one (the 6th book, A Breath of Snow and Ashes) I had to order from Amazon.  I wanted a nice copy for my keeper shelf, so wasn't willing to wait for it to show up at the UBS.  I'm sure they can be found for cheaper though- the others had some good suggestions for where to look.  The first 5 aren't too hard to find, but it's more difficult to find good copies of the 6th book, so if you see it somewhere, snap it up quick!

Well, personally, I read Outlander before joining PBS and I was so dying for the series that I bought them all new.
