Outlander fans want to see Claire and Jamie’s story continue forever. Did the story come to an end with Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone?
It took a few years, but we finally got to see Bree and Roger’s return to the Ridge in Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone. The ninth Outlander book brought us more stories for the growing cast, including Young Ian and Rachel, William Ransom, and Lord John Grey.
Of course, Claire and Jamie remained an integral part of the story. They are the two that pulled readers into the books, and we would love to see their story continue. We also know they’re human characters, so eventually, they will need to say goodbye to the living world.
As book series go on, we start to get ready for the end. Just when will the Outlander books come to an end? Is Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone the last in the series?
Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone is not the last book in the main series
There is some great news for fans of Claire and Jamie’s story. It is not going to be the last book. Diana Gabaldon has confirmed that she is working on the 10th book in the series already. There isn’t a title for that 10th book, but this one is slated to be the end.
Of course, things can change. We know that Gabaldon has changed the ending over time. The characters continue to talk to her, so she writes the stories they want to be told. That’s the way she works, so it’s more than possible that the 10th book could end up not being the last after all. We’ll have to wait and see how the writing process goes.
This 10th book isn’t going to be the last of the entire Outlander universe. Gabaldon is working on a prequel book about Jamie’s parents, and she has ideas for a Master Raymond novel. There are also more Lord John Grey books that are possible.
