Valerie Estelle Frankel – The Symbolism and Sources of Outlander: The Scottish Fairies, Folklore, Ballads, Magic and Meanings That Inspired the Series | Review

51hvcfaln8l-_sx331_bo1204203200_ This amazing book was sent to me by the writer, Valerie Estelle Frankel, herself. I am a person who has not long ago delved into the Outlander series. I have read the first book and watched the first season of the series. All the other books are yet to be discovered.

I fell in love with Outlander the moment I opened the covers. I was filled with warmth and a beautiful feeling of familiarity. And as that happened I wanted to discover more and more about the mesmerizing world I had discovered. When Valerie Estelle Frankel contacted me about the reviews, she did not realize she was doing me a great favor as well as I was doing one to her.
I wanted everything Outlander and there she was handing me this great read.

I did have some problems with the book itself, in the way that I felt like she could have digged deeper into some things such as the explanation of certain symbols, but other than that everything was really quite interesting!
My favorite chapter was Scottish Folklore, and inside it People and Their Talents. I loved reading about those topics. I also enjoyed Myth and the part about Standing Stones, which I felt was very informative.

In conclusion, you must look into this book if you enjoy the Outlander series!
