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.

    "Outlandish"

    I love these books & listening to them is even more of a joy, especially while out hiking/running in the woods. Try it sometime! 😉

    "Made it through."
    If you’ve listened to books by Diana Gabaldon before, how does this one compare?

    Listening to this one while driving on a road trip is the only way I made it through the book. It was so long and drawn out (and slow in comparison to the others) that I put it down a lot. Where the others barely left my hand/ears.


    Have you listened to any of Davina Porter’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Davina does a great job as always!


    Any additional comments?

    This book while slow is so necessary when it comes to the big picture of Outlander. Press on, so much more story awaits at the other end. :)

    "Another great collaboratoin for Gabaldon & Porter"

    Once this Outlander series begins, you can't step away. Davina Porter is brilliant as a narrator of so many voices and brogues. Amazing. Definitely 5 stars!

    "Still Captivated By the Outlander Series"
    What did you love best about The Fiery Cross?

    The continuity in the story line from one book to the next is fascinating. Characters are well developed and narration is fantastic. I like the blend of history and fiction with suspense and intrigue


    What about Davina Porter’s performance did you like?

    Davina Porter's rich accent and unique narration for each character brings them to life. I can hear her voice in my mind even when I'm reading and not listening to the audible portion.


    If you could take any character from The Fiery Cross out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    I would definitely take Claire out to dinner to find out how this whole series plays out!

    "Finally here"

    Finally here this version with the great voice of Davina Porter!! I am so happy. Her voice makes the whole book come to live, especcially when you have listened to the first four outlander books. Now just waiting for 'breath of snow and ashes' with Davina Porter! Please Audible....

    "Twists, great plots and a bit of history"
    What made the experience of listening to The Fiery Cross the most enjoyable?

    The narrator is very good, sometimes I find myself having the same experience like reading the book for myself, the scenes folding out right before my eyes, perfectly and vividly described, and delivered.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Fiery Cross?

    i haven't quite finished yet, but the happenings at the wedding are great.


    Have you listened to any of Davina Porter’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to the previous Gabaldon books and she is good as ever,she plays well with her voice.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The plot thickens

    "Boring"
    Would you try another book written by Diana Gabaldon or narrated by Davina Porter?

    I started listening to these books after watching the outlander series. The first book was good, although i do not think i would have carried on with the series had i not watched it on TV. Now on Book 5 i have given up. I persevered through the last few books as i wanted to know what happened to Jamie and Clare. I now am not interested. The story lines are getting more and more far fetched and there seems to be parts of the story that are introduced and are left hanging with no explanation. She may be picking them back up later but it doesn't seem so. Very badly written and although i know the author is american but the English that is used in parts in terrible. Will not waste anymore credits on this.
