    " While I did not like this book as much as I liked Outlander (which I LOVED!) it definitely caught my interest and kept the amazing story of Jamie and Clare moving forward. Davina Porter is phenomemal as a narrator and effectively portrays all of the beloved and new characters effectively. her accent work really should be applauded! If you like Diana Gabaldon and Outlander, stick with Dragonfly in Amber and you will be rewarded. "
