Publisher's Summary

The year is 1771. Claire Randall is still an outlander, out of place and out of time. But now she is linked by love to her only anchor: Jamie Fraser. They have crossed oceans and centuries to build a life together in North Carolina. But tensions, both ancient and recent, threaten members of their clan.

Knowing that his wife has the gift of prophecy, James must believe Claire, though he would prefer not to. Claire has shared a dreadful truth: there will, without a doubt, be a war. Her knowledge of the oncoming revolution is a flickering torch that may light his way through perilous years ahead - or ignite a conflagration that will leave their lives in ashes.

    "Wonderful Story"

    I've read the books twice and still loved hearing the story read by Davina Porter.

    Story
    "Just get through it"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Only if they plan on continuing with the series.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    It just drags on forever. Too many descriptions. Too many random events.


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

    The different voices really help keep track during long conversations.


    Do you think The Fiery Cross needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Eh.. It didn't really end on a cliffhanger.


    Any additional comments?

    Reviews promise the next one moves along better, so get through this one and get on to the next.

    "number 5 done and can't wait to start number 6"
    What does Davina Porter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The richness of her voice and ability to make each character become so real you can almost see them when you close your eyes

    Story
    "Don't skip this book!"

    I understand how people have been saying it drags. The book gives you AMAZING insight into life in the mountains along with a 20th century doctor and engineering trying to improve it. You get more in depth characterization of Brianna and Rodger and still love every moment with Claire and Jamie. The multiple POVs gives a great window into each of the main character's lives and thoughts.

    "Continue to enjoy the story"

    Having read reviews that said to much detail I didn't know what to expect but I love the details. This book has added to what I have already read and look forward to starting the next part of this story later today.

    "My ride to work wasn't long enough..."

    This is an amazing and exciting installment in the series!! I listen mostly during my commute to and from work. There were many mornings and evenings that I sat in my car unable to turn off my car because I needed to hear what was going to happen next!

    "I love this story."

    This story was quite a bit slower than the others but I still can't stop reading it. I'm hooked on Outlander!

    "Davina Porter makes everything better!"

    Slower than any of the first four books, but still an intriguing listen. Davina Porter is the best narrator, so listening to her makes even the most boring parts lovely. Also, I'm very interested to learn what will happen next.
