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 little Slow at times"

    Entertaining, but it was slower paced than the previous books. I can't wait to read the next book.

    "Slow to start, but worth it."

    Like all of the books in this series, the constant description of weather and smells is over done, while some characters are a bit too perfect, Jaime, others are flawed and therefore more real, Claire, Roger. I particularly like the way the narrator portrays the children. Ms. Davina Porter's ability and command in portraying so many characters and so many accents is quite impressive. Again, as in the previous books in this series the writer, Ms. Diana Gabaldon, pays excruciating attention detail. This remarkable fastidiousness is a tribute to her commitment and thoroughness. Well done.

    Nice the hear the story again. Davina Porter makes the characters come alive and she makes each one sound different enough so you can tell who is talking before the story tells you. Ever her Gaelic is better!

    "audio makes this one easy to finish"

    Tried this in hardcover but slower pace left me restless. Audio got me through meandering first chapters & ignited appreciation for domestic details and some intriguing events.

    "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....

    "lovely but..."

    As always a beautiful stroy and all are beloved caracters. But the intrigue is stretched out and lost in hours of none related everyday life, babys and animal attackes (lots of theme). Hope the next one keeps my interest

    This is book 5 of the time travel Outlander series of adventures of Claire Randall and highlander Jamie Fraser. I have read all seven books and listened to them on disc and via Audible as well. Can't wait for book eight!

    What an amazing story from a very inventive author. This is a mix of historical,/romance/adventure,,/ fantasy. With its many chapters it kept me entertained for many hours. Very engrossing.

    "Narrator is Ridiculously Distracting"
    What disappointed you about The Fiery Cross?

    The story is boring and I can't get into it in order to move on to the other books. I decided to try Audible to help me get through this book by listening on my commute. The narrator uses nonsensical tones, accents, and lisps to the point of being distracting and ridiculous. I thought Jamie and Claire had happened upon a group of Russians, only to realise she was doing what was supposed to be a Scottish accent. The narrator also inexplicably uses a heavy lisp with no descriptive reasoning, to the point I thought the character was mentally disabled! She also for some reason makes the female voices extremely deep and husky, to where I have to relisten to things to decide if it's Jamie or Claire speaking. It is so distracting from an already difficult to get into story. I will not purchase anymore audible books with this narrator.


    What will your next listen be?

    Nothing with this narrator


    What didn’t you like about Davina Porter’s performance?

    Her reading is distracting and accents, tones, lisps are not part of the story description.

    "Captivating story and brilliant narrator"

    This book, just like it's predecessors kept me hooked from the beginning to the end. That would have not been possible without Davina Porter's amazing narration. She managed to impersonate each character amazingly well.
