The following quotation is from An Echo In The Bone by Diana Gabaldon. Copyright 2010. All Rights Reserved. Chapter 96. Firefly


“But maybe Mr. Cameron would come back when it got morning, too. Jem moved a little away from the door, thinking that. He didn’t think Mr. Cameron wanted to hurt him, exactly – he said he didn’t, at least – but he might try to take him back up to the rocks and Jem wasn’t going there, not for anything,

Thinking about the rocks hurt. Not as much as when Mr. Cameron pushed him against one and it . . . started, but it hurt. There was a scrape on his elbow where he banged it, fighting back, and he rubbed at it now, because it was lots better to feel that than to think about the rocks. No, he told himself, Mr. Cameron wouldn’t hurt him, because he’d pulled him back out of the rock when it tried to . . . He swallowed hard, and tried to think about something else.”

[> If Rob was able to pull Jem back, does that mean Rob can't travel? I was looking forward to more of his evil. -- Jayn, 05:42:30 09/03/15 Thu

[> [> I'm pretty sure Rob can't travel but I wouldn't be completely surprised if he shows up again in Book 9. -- kgp, 06:23:43 09/03/15 Thu

[> [> Didn't Jamie pull Claire back when he took her there in Outlander? I had forgotten that Rob took Jem to the stones as well. I guess that when he didn't go through all the way that was why Amanda settled down. -- LisaW, 07:28:54 09/03/15 Thu

[> [> [> yes - Claire "started to go" and he pulled her back. So I think if you are not a 'traveler' and the stones do not affect you, you can prevent people from going. -- kgp, 08:23:13 09/03/15 Thu

[> [> [> [> but travelers can prevent themselves from going also right? as long as they are not too far in the process...or if the person they are thinking of aka Jaimie is still in this time? -- BetsyG, 05:17:04 09/04/15 Fri

[> [> [> [> [> OH and my real question....so what DOES blood do ...because Gellis used it...do you think it affects the traveler? Throws it off makes it stronger...somewhere , someone...Gellie? wrote about using blood...the all be revealed wait and see of this makes me a bit crazy on rereads...which is why I don't often join discussions! -- BetsyG, 05:19:13 09/04/15 Fri

[> [> [> [> [> [> You are correct, Betsy. Geillis did use blood but I think she was taking things a bit too far or at least that's what the conclusion was to Claire, Roger & Brianna. -- Connee, 09:23:49 09/04/15 Fri
