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.

    "Great read!"

    I have read all of the author's books when they were just publish. Each book was a great read. It is even better with the audible book because it makes you wonder how did I miss that particular episode in the book and makes you actually remember it after you have finish the book!

    "Well, she did it again."

    I don't know, I just really have a thing for these books. It's just like, my thing. And I seriously can't get enough. So, if you like historic romance novels with a touch of fantasy(seriously just a touch), that don't seem to ever get boring... Read this series. That is all.

    "Too long"
    What did you like best about Dragonfly in Amber? What did you like least?

    I liked best the narration of Davina Porter. The text includes too much tiny details


    What was most disappointing about Diana Gabaldon’s story?

    Too long&detailed . Made me hop between chapters


    What about Davina Porter’s performance did you like?

    Very good


    Do you think Dragonfly in Amber needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Yes. Only because even after some very long 3 days of recordings the story did not conclude

    "CAN CLAIR AND JAMIE CHANGE THE PAST???"

    Book two starts off with Clair back in her time and she's with her daughter. Twenty years later after Frank has passed away she wants to let her daughter know her real dad. Now its time to go back on the journey with her daughter to learn the past and maybe change the past. At times the book was long and boring so I hope book three is a little better.

    "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.

    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
