      I believe since then (that was from 2012) DG has said she doesn’t yet know if book 9 will be the last or not – maybe it will be, maybe it won’t. She won’t really know until she’s much more into the writing and sees the whole shape of the book.

      And in updated news, DG confirmed at a writer’s conference a couple weekends ago (Surrey, maybe?) that there will also be a book 10.

        Okay, I am probably in the minority here but really? MOBY was already mostly not C&J and was all B & R & Buccleigh guy, plus William going around being an ass. Was there any forward movement in the C&J story? And pretty much the plot of all these books is 1) oh, we’re happy and peaceful 2) shit happens 3) we struggle with the shit that happened 4) we’re all good now. How much more shit are C&J supposed to go through? Couldn’t we just imagine they have a nice, peaceful seventieth decade and die peacefully in each other’s arms?

        Sorry to hear, that you didn’t like MOBY. I think it was the best one in the series since Voyager, but that’s just my point of view. Anyway, to me Outlander isn’t just about C&J but about all their family and friends as well. Most of the other characters have warped their way into my heart and I was thrilled to be able to see part of their lives as well. So I for one am looking forward to book 9.

        Sorry that was unclear, I was saying a book 10 seemed like too much to me. There has to be a 9, too many loose ends.

        Rachel I agree with you – give J&C some closure and rest already. Finish up their story and if DG wants to continue with the others I probably won’t read that.

        At this point in the books EVERYONE bugs me and I just want them all to stop. I’ll read them, because I need closure like everyone else, but the more books there are the more I dislike every character (including J&C).

        ETA: now that I actually wrote that out I feel free…I think I’ve been holding in a lot of anger : )

      I think I’m part of the minority that has enjoyed the storyline of Lord John Grey and B&R as much, if not more at times, as the Jamie and Claire storyline. The suspense of MOBY in regards to what was happening with Jem really kept my attention. I’d not go so far as saying it was my personal favorite of the series, because I think that honor resides with DIA, no Echo, maybe Breath of Snow and Ashes. Ok, I can’t pick a favorite.

      I can understand the desire to get back to the J&C storyline in MOBY, because once it transitioned back, all I could do was wonder what happened to B&R…though in retrospect it makes sense that she didn’t keep bouncing back and forth as quickly as she’d done in past books. It really set the stage for the final chapter of the book, and the cliff she left us hanging onto.

      /woot…I’m not alone!

      I think my strange obsession with extended universe fanfiction as a teenager paved the way for me to prefer stories that include large groups of people with very detailed histories. I tend to read series at least 4 times in a row, back to back, in an effort to drain every spec of information that I can. I haven’t been able to read a solitary novel in about 5 years, except for required reading for College classes.
