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.

    "Another great book in the series"

    Although I gave this one 5 stars, I would have probably given the story 4.5 stars if I could have only because the portion of the story in France dragged on a little bit to me. But other than that, it was a very good addition to the series. This book continues the love story of Jamie and Claire but also focuses on them trying to stop and then minimize the damage from the rising. I thought the ending was very moving, and this download includes the first 10 minutes of Voyager, which were very compelling and had me counting down the days to when I would get my next credit to buy it.

    Davina Porter was excellent as usual.

    "As good as the first"

    I'm not a fan of romance novels in general and get snobbish when it 'interferes' w/ a classic hi-fi. I also prefer tons of details about the historical time period. Gabaldgon's novels are filled w/ the former and there's not too much of the later.

    Frankly I have no idea why I like this series so much! I do enjoy her writing very much. Clever, engaging, and I adore Davina Porter's interpretation/narration. Hope she can continue throughout the series.

    "Great book!"

    Okay, this is not my favorite in the series. Having said that, it still beats the pants off of a lot of books out there. Gabaldon is an amazing story teller and Porter is an awesome narrator. I have read and re-read the books and listened and listened again to the audiobooks. This is an amazing series and I am so thankful to the stranger who recommended the books to me.

    "Thank God its a series!"
    Where does Dragonfly in Amber rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top of the list among the rest of the Outlander series.


    What does Davina Porter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her amazing accents really brought this book to life.

    "Book 2 still keeps your interest"

    Though I think I preferred book one, this second book in the series still has lots of things happening. I am so glad I heard about them after the 7 were already written. It would have been so hard to have to wait for the next one!

    "Don't listen to the audiobooks!"
    What did you like best about Dragonfly in Amber? What did you like least?

    I'm a huge fan of the outlander series. I have read the whole series twice. I love it so much that I even decided to try out the audiobooks. Big mistake. Im currently listening to DIA. The narrator is so incredibly hammy that I can barely stand it. I have been rolling my eyes constantly at her over-enunciation and breathy voice she uses for Claire. She makes Claire even more annoying than usual, and has even made Jamie overbearingly sappy and over the top. It's insufferable during the loves scenes. Ugh, I'm so annoyed I started listening to these! She ruined these books for me. If you love this series, don't listen to the audiobooks!


    What other book might you compare Dragonfly in Amber to and why?

    Outlander


    How could the performance have been better?

    A less corny and hammy narrorator.


    Could you see Dragonfly in Amber being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Yes, it will be on Starz
