Audio Book 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.

    Another amazing book! These books would not be the same without Davina Porter as she brings to life each and every character. 'How does she do it?' Is the real question. Outlander novels are just that, novels. The beginnings seem to draw on at first with such detail and events and character plotting, while the second halves are always the most intense plot turns and adventure. This novel, number 5 of 8, while I love all the storyline of Jamie and Claire I feel that this whole book is the turning point to where Outlander will head next. Less drama than previous books and mostly character development. Moving forward to the next novels I have a deep sense that I will truly just fall apart emotionally as by now I'm sure we are all sunk deep into this series and can't let go!

    Fiery Cross doesn’t disappoint with hair-raising tales from the 18th century and marvelous character portraits and relationships. Davina Porter is the ultimate narrator. I wouldn’t want anyone else to read me a story.

    Even though this was very very long and sometimes boring, it was necessary to get all the details for the storyline to make sense. I have just downloaded the 6th book of the series and I'm sure as I've come this far, I'll carry on to the end. Davina Porter does a marvellous job of narrating, on my first time to listen rather than read the book.

    There were some parts that were a bit boring but were necessary to listen to. Narrator is excellent and manages multiple accents with ease

    A must read for Outlander fans as it continues the saga of Jaimie and Claire; however, getting through this fifth installment requires some fortitude. The reader, and/or listener will be rewarded with enough knowledge of medicine, botany, animal science and biology in general to receive college credit. Gabaldon is a master at describing people and places so the reader feels a part of story. Unfortunately, these descriptions also detract from the story and characters. I agree with previous comments about editing although the advantage of audiobooks is speeding the narration in order to get back to the story. In the end, this book failed to reach as high as the previous novels in the series, although still very good.

    Have loved listening to this book while driving to and from work. Makes the time fly by and the narration is amazing! Really brings each of the characters to life with their British, French, and Scottish accents.

    I enjoy the series, characters and the period. Some sections seem to drag on and begin to feel like "filler" and I found myself wondering when the story will pick up. Was more like reading someone's journal and less like a story that I knew where it was going. Some parts felt like "blah blah blah"....get on with it. The detail however is astounding and I was amazed by how people lived and survived. Bringing the 20th century knowledge to the 18th century is always an interesting twist in this series. I would and do recommend this series and am looking forward to beginning the next book his week. The narrator is pretty amazing, although some of the accents (especially the American, slaves, and children!!!) rub me to irritation) At times I just wished for straight reading without all the changes. As for audiobook In General...I really wish they had chapters or tracks to be able to move around the book, reread, know where you are, etc.
