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.

    "Not for Children!"

    I have a serious issue with the author's seemingly obsession with rape and pedophilia. I whisked past these parts and enjoyed the historic nature of the story.

    "Fantastic Series"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Dragonfly in Amber to be better than the print version?

    Yes! Because the book is so long, it's fantastic to be able to "read" this book while on my morning commute.


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

    Great narrator who really helps bring the world alive.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Wish I could but WAY too long. But that's a good thing because it was a little treat each day.

    I have never enjoyed a series as much as these books, I am going to listen to them again later down the track as they were so good. What talent this author has, also such a lovely voice of Davina, I felt like I could see the things I was listening to, Thank you so much for the series

    Story
    "Enjoyed book 2, next for book 3"

    Diana Gabaldon's second in the series was enjoyable because of the story as well as the details about a past age and culture. The story goes sometimes go too slow when it feels like too much detail is being packed in, but I did enjoy the story and will definitely go on to book 3.
    Davina Porter does such a good job narrating, I know who is speaking before the text announces the speaker's name. The only challenge was her weakness in using an American accent. It was the only accent that I did not enjoy her rendition of, although I was able to follow the story well enough.
    So much do I enjoy the books, I am planning to see the Starz series as well. I know I will be comparing Davina's portrayal to everything I see - her portrayal of Diana's world is the standard in my mind.

    "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

    This book is marvellously plotted and the historical details really paint a glowing picture of the dirt, gore, relationships, politics, even fashion of the times both in the 18th and 20th centuries. Davina Porter is a very talented voice actress
