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.

    Story
    "Epic Audio Vacation to Saucy Scotland, Part 2"

    Despite being two days long, it took me almost a full month to listen to Dragonfly in Amber. I read, on my wife's adamantine recommendation, Outlander last year. As a scot by heritage, I found it interesting and engaging, if a bit blush-inducing. Dragonfly in Amber takes the politicking and intrigue to new heights, while avoiding becoming a travelogue, which the first book suffers a bit from.

    Gabaldon writes with a vision and scope that I'd say well exceed the term "novel," which means the structure of the narrative is a bit different. Time seems to stretch out, and twists pile on twists in a way your regular-sized novel can't afford with a sub-500 page economy. But I dig it. It's like you're really there with the characters, and really experiencing this bizarre Jacobite situation.

    I for one will certainly listen to the next book.

    "Davina Porter is a genius."

    I can't imagine how hard she must work. Her voices are always spot on despite having to voice various ages, accents, and genders. Brava. She brings so much to an already fascinating and interesting read.

    "Can't put it down"

    No really I'm losing sleep as I must know what happens. After reading the first, I am now half way through this book and still have all the others to catch up on. Davina Porter is an amazing narrator. You honestly believe in all the characters and their different voices; how does she do it? I would never have enjoyed these books if I had read them myself. I couldn't have switched from voice to voice in my head the way it is narrated.
    Oh just one other thing; A plead to reviewers; you are giving too much away and this spoils it for those who haven't yet read or finished each novel.

    This lived up to the brilliance of the first book, and I finished it in five days. Plenty of laughs and tears, and a gripping plot.

    "Wonderful!"

    The continuing story of Claire and Jamie.. Fascinating, compelling, intoxicating!... A romp through history... traveling in two centuries, full of wonderful characters, who both engage and repel. Epic battles..heartbreaking, as the narrative speaks of the futility of war. Love portrayed timelessly as truth. Funny, affectionate and unputdownable...thank goodness for audible narration by Davina Porter, (who deserves an award!) that brings vividly to life every character and scene with such dramatic flair. As I said ...Wonderful!

    "more sex than history"

    I love historical novels, but this really is more of a romance novel with a bit of history thrown it as filler. If you are looking for a book with lots of sex scenes set in a 'period' ambiance this is your book, if you are looking for more history than slightly vulgar sex than this one isn't for you.

    As with the first book I was absolutely hooked.
    I enjoyed reading and learning more about the characters.
    The story flowed beautifully and the attention to detail was second to none, the author has clearly done her homework.
    Would recommend readers read the book before seeing the series on tv .
    I am now starting on book three
