Oh Fergus, you poor child. Is there not one character that I love that is safe from these horrors? If you are a fan of happy books I suggest not even starting this series. I've grown to love some of these characters, especially wee Fergus, and to see some of the things that are happening to them is just heartbreaking. Poor Claire, poor Fergus, poor Jamie. I swear if anything happens to Bouton or Murtagh I might have a mental breakdown.
