I really liked this book until the last 1/4th. Time travel- awesome, scottish accents- somewhat difficult to read, but manageable, the ending- terrible and SO disappointing because I really liked everything else! In a nutshell, I did not approve of the villains homosexuality. I mean that not in the sense that I don't approve of homosexuality, but that I don't approve of what the author is implying about male homosexuality. Then, to make it even worse than gay rape, the whole last few chapters have to take it a step further. He enjoyed it, he's traumatized, blah blah blah, but of course Claire can fix him! Duh, she's a psychiatric miracle worker! So dumb.
It turned me off to the writer so much I'm probably not going to read any more of these books, if the rest of the series is better, let me know and maybe I'll give them a try.
