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.

    "A Bit Tedious"

    I love the Outlander book series, deeply and truly. Given the chance to stay home listening to and/or reading this series or going out to dinner with a handsome man, just short of having the chance to date the living incarnation of James Alexander Malcolm Mackenzie Fraser, the series would win every time. All of that being said, The Fiery Cross just didn't click for me. It felt less like a book with a cohesive plot and more like a jumble of interesting little vignettes with rather boring fluff scenes tying them all together. It was still good, just not as good as the four earlier installments. I found myself zoning out and having to replay chapters quite frequently due to boredom.

    "Book is broken into parts for download."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I prefer the format where it is one file for download, because if you lose your place or your read some parts and listen to others it makes it difficult to find your place in the book.

    "This is my least favorite of the series."

    This book seemed to drag alot with daily living details and no real meat to advance the story line. I feel like I could have skipped this book without missing too much of the plot points.

    "Entrancing"

    The story is rich with interesting ins and outs of the family those who interact with them, culture of the time and history. It's one of my favorites of this series.

    "Worst Book in the series"

    This book was painful to listen to except for the exceptional performance by Davina Porter. Absolutely nothing happens to move the overall narrative/story forward. It is all just fluff and daily life stories – no intrigue or excitement like in the previous books. I don't know that I will continue with the series, unless someone tells me the next book is really good, in which case I advise you to skip this book and go straight to the next; you won't miss anything except one event related to Roger.

    "Good stuff..."

    Compared to her other books this one seemed a bit slow to start. In fact if I'd had to read it myself I'm not sure I might have finished it but I do admit to enjoying Davina Porter's narration and Diana Gabaldon is a fantastic writer. Her ability to make the most mundane things seem intriguing and draws you in to the sights and sounds with such ease. A little of it goes a long way and I thinks that's way it seemed so slow in the beginning maybe. Thumbs up.

    The adventure continues with unexpected twists and turns. I feel as the author is taking me back in time.

    "Excellence in story telling"

    An absolute gem of narrative skill. For people who love to read Diana Gabaldon works, The Fiery Cross, is by far one of her best written submissions. I have listened to all of Davina Porter's narration and it is truly amazing to me how she manages to encapsulate all the characters voices throughout this excellent series. Great acting. A work of art upon a work of art. My favorite way of listening to these stories is to read them together with the books at the same time for the ultimate experience.
