More than a decade ago, number-one New York Times best-selling author Diana Gabaldon delighted her legions of fans with The Outlandish Companion, an indispensable guide to all the Outlander books at the time. But that edition was just a taste of things to come. Since that publication, there have been four more Outlander novels, a side series, assorted novellas, and one smash-hit Starz original television series.

These books are the perfect evolution of the magical child genre. They are for any adult who has read and loved Narnia, Harry Potter, Chrestomanci, Middle Earth. They are the answer to how does magic grow up and to how can a grown up person still love magic. They are a fully adult story, not just because they contain sex and drinking and adult language, but more importantly they are deeply allegorical, exploring questions that engage on so many levels. Wonderful story craft here!!!!

The evidence revealed in this book shows beyond reasonable doubt that an advanced civilization that flourished during the Ice Age was destroyed in the global cataclysms between 12,800 and 11,600 years ago. But there were survivors - known to later cultures by names such as "the Sages", "the Magicians", "the Shining Ones", and "the Mystery Teachers of Heaven".
