Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Diana Gabaldon enchanted scores of fans with Outlander, her electrifying historical saga set in 18th-century Scotland. Now the sequel sweeps listeners back into the past as Claire relates more of her perilous sojourn there with her Scottish warrior husband, James Fraser. Twenty years after her strange journey back in time, Claire has returned to Scotland with her daughter, determined to share with her the secret she has harbored since her time travel. Still longing to know the fate of her beloved warrior, she recounts the story of her stay with him in the intrigue-ridden court of Charles Stuart and their attempt to avert the doomed Highlands uprising at Culloden. As her story unfolds, it reveals implications more far-reaching than even Claire could have guessed.

Narrator Davina Porter's gift for expression captures the history and flavor of a harsh place and time, and gives it the polish of a warm and engaging love story.

    "Davina makes the charcters real!"

    I read all the books when they first came out 25 years ago I watch the show I'm going through and reading the books over and over again and now the audio Divina really makes the characters come alive and real she does a fabulous job reading the story it's great with audio you hear things differently than the way you read them and it comes across as almost to different stories don't add some parts there's a few things I missed even after reading the book more than once that I heard in the audio great just love it!

    "Lame Sequel"

    The first book moved along and was entertaining. This one drags, and is way longer than it should be. Wasn't worth my time. A shame.

    "Awesome in every way."

    I started listening to these books on audible after watching the tv series because I wanted to know what happened next. It's been great because as usual there are some things that are not in the tv series that are in the book. But, surprisingly, there are some things on the series that are not in the book. It's the best of both worlds having them both. I love the narrator, she does a great job and keeps me interested, which is no easy task. The sex scenes in the book were many, but great. I must say I definitely liked them, but caught myself saying aloud one time, "oh geez not again." I can only think I must have been having an off day as that is very unlike me. But, they are tasteful and the writer is excellent as she really makes me feel like I am right in the scene along with the great narrator of course that brings those words to life. My girlfriend just prompted me to get the third book so we can see what happens next as we just finished the series finale. I don't know if I would have gotten into these books so much without watching the series, but I am hooked now and I am very glad I have discovered them. I will probably end up listening to them all. Kudos to Miss Gabaldon for her creativity and excellent writing and to Miss Porter for narrating them so well. I am off to listen to the third now. :)

    Story
    "Wow!!"

    I'm an audible junky. I work in construction and listen to audible books all day long, it makes my days fly by. I'm pretty eclectic, listen to many different genre including audibles free offering and news, science and poetry. I seldom find something I don't like at least a little but often find the narrators bland if not outright irritating. Really, some of the authors should listen to who they pick for narrators in advance. Obviously Diana Gabaldon listened because not only did she write an amazing story but she chose a narrator that brings the story to life in a way that I cannot get enough of. All I can say is I find that my heart is deeply touched by both the story and the narration. To me, the narration for this series could not be any better. It is absolutely the best of the best.

    "Dragonfly in Amber"

    Loved the basic story. Didnt quite like the beginning but overall liked the book. I was expecting to see better flow from last book between stories. Good narrator with all the voices and changes.
