One of the reasons I decided to read Sara's Series is that I was told that Diana had coached Sara; how true that is, I am uncertain. I have enjoyed the Series thus far and have found that her writing had improved as the saga continued.
I am on her Fifth book now, Queen of Swords, which mainly bases the story on Luke, Hannah and Jennet (thus far). I cannot give an honest opinion on this book, but have enjoyed the series.
Sara Donati is definitely not as talented as Diana Gabaldon. Sara's series is a "filler" until Echo in the Bone is on the shelves.
