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.

    "Great book. "

    Second only to the first in the series. There were many subplots that added to tension and satisfaction within the overall story.

    "brilliant as always, love Herself and Porter...."

    probably the 8th time I've read this novel. it's strange how much these books are part of my life and affect me differently as I age. I can open or listen to these books at any point and feel immediately like I'm among old friends

    "Starts slow, gets better"

    The beginning was tough. There were long boring stretches that in my opinion didn't need to be there. But it gets better about a quarter of the book later. And then I enjoyed the story as usual.

    "Narrator Extrordinairre!!"

    Davina Porter is AMAZING. Gabaldon's characters come to life in her voice. These books are masterfully written & read.

    "Wonderful story as ever, but broken up terribly!"

    Diana Gabaldon is a wonderful storyteller and Davina Porter a wonderful performer! Like all of the previous pieces from this team, this installment stands tall!

    But Audible -- or whoever created this option -- made a TERRIBLE mistake with the "broken up for faster download" option. Although I chose NOT to "download in parts," - it happened anyway, which means that it shows up in seven different parts on my device. I have to tap on "The Fiery Cross" and then on "Part 4" (or whichever) to get to my chapter list, and each "part" has a list of chapters that starts at one. And unlike the previous book in the series, Drums of Autumn, the chapters in the book do not align with the chapters on the recording. Indeed, each chapter from the physical book is likely to be broken into at least 3 or 4 different "chapters" on the audiobook. I drive a lot for work, so I like to listen while driving and then pick up the book when I get home. This way of breaking up the recording into parts and more parts makes in EXTREMELY difficult for me to do that. I can never find where I left off, no matter whether I listened last or read last.

    My fingers are crossed that when I get to Breath of Snow and Ashes, I can once again enjoy the convenience of the one chapter=one chapter format.

    "Love Outlander!!"

    This one was a bit slower going than the others, but still worth my time!! I love that they are moving into American History. That is exciting to me.

    "Great Story Continues to Get Better"

    A little slower pace than prior books in the series. A lot of new people introduced, and a little challenging to keep track of some of them. Also feel sorry for Roger; seems like bad luck or misfortune follow him.
