Book 3 in this series dealt mainly with Meg's son David, or Daffyd as he became known. She takes a lot of liberty with history and creates her own reality that doesn't match what really happened in our world. I loved the characters Bronwen and Iuean in this one. Too many battles and too many characters and place names to keep straight. Definitely would have liked a printed out map for this one!

This is book 2 of the After Cilmeri series and I loved it just as much as the other books. This time David is trying to escape. With Ieuan wounded and nowhere to go, he tests his time travel theory by jumping off a cliff, Lucky for him, it worked and he is back in the 21st century.

Ieuan is awed by the technology he sees. He gets medical care like he has never seen or imagined. This is where Bronwen is introduced. Between two different time periods, David is a force to be reckoned with.

I liked Prince of Time even better than Footprints in Time. Again enjoyable. Great Characters, I loved the way the time travel was in a parallel universe. It was really interesting to compare the difference age makes in medieval time VS present time.
Very enjoyable for me!

This series keeps getting better. Loved the idea of going back home and downloading weapon info and medical info and taking back to wales... Then using that info to change history. Love it.

An excellent read. Like all Sarah Woodbury's books, I do not want them to end yet cannot stop reading. They are such a marvelous blend of mediaeval life in Wales and time travel from our modern age.

If only I could go back with David, Anna, Sarah and the rest. I was so happy to find that there was another book after Footsteps in Time. Just the right mix of valiant sword fights, adventure, threatened sabatoge, added to the strangeness of our modern day inventions showing up in the 13th century fight for Wales. LOVED it.

Still reading, a little childish in that is again a book on time travel back to 12 century Wales, but I aqm enjoying this book. Finished it and I truly enjoyed it. It was a little sophamoric but still I love fantasy!

Excellent Series! A new author for me. Lots of history in this book. No love scenes if that is what you like. I really enjoyed this set of books.

Was disappointed Marged and Llewelyn weren't in the story more, especially Marged. Why would an author practically omit such beloved characters from a series!?

The final volume in the original After Cilmeri trilogy. I enjoyed this story as much as the others. I see that there are a zillion more, which I may or may not read. I bought the entire trilogy and the prequel (written later) through a Bookbub hot deal, and don't know if I will read further. But they are well-written with believable characters, interesting historical information and it's always fun to speculate what might have happened if certain historical characters had lived/died/gotten marri ...more

I can't say enough good things about this series... the way she evokes time and place is nothing short of spooky. You'll be right there with the characters standing on the castle parapets and in the jousting lists, and the time travel element is 100 percent believable. You will love these characters and care what happens to them.

My #1 favorite time travel series.

I wasn't sure I wanted to continue with this series, but the Prince in Time changed it for me. The plot twists made it more exciting and peaked my imagination. So onward to the next adventure!

This is well out of my normal reads, but I am very interested now!!!

This is now my third book in this series, what a concept, what a story! What if we could apply this to change a lot of the wrongs in life?

After reading the first two books, I discovered my library had the next two in their system. I was able to pick this one up today and spent the afternoon reading it.

It's been a long time since I've flown through a series like this. And Prince in Time was better than the previous book. First off I adore the characters and loved getting into the head of one of the 13th century characters. Ieuen was a great addition and I loved his byplay with both David and Bronwen.

I liked the conflict that David

I just recently started reading the After Cilmeri Series and I LOVE everything about it. I read all 12 books in 2 weeks and can't wait for the next one to arrive on my kindle next month.

I liked this book, but that sentence also comes with pause.

The things that really brought down the wonderful story was;

1. The author continuing to make every single chapter switch perspectives from one of the 3 main characters to the next got confusing to me. I was constantly having to flip back to the chapter start to remind myself who's perspective I was reading now.

2. The portion of the story written in present day was something I got board with. That had so much potential to be interesting,

This is book #2 in the series and the story has evolved deeper and better, with an unexpected twist. David's character is maturing - both as a person and in the expression by the author of who that person is - and we see the teenage boy becoming a man of integrity and a man of power.

I particularly enjoyed the rounding out of Ieuan and the introduction of Bronwen. Other reviewers have expressed concern over the lessening of Anna's role in the story in this book, but I didn't see it that way. Ther

This is the book that really gets into a retelling of history.

David or Daffyd as he as become known is the Prince of Wales and he's got some more modern things to teach the English and keep them out of Wales.

While out thwarting the English with his new right hand man, Ieuan, David has to make a split second decision that lands them in the 20th century.

Daffyd now has to help Ieuan navigate the future, explain where he's been to his aunt and figure out how to return to the 13th century all with th

Starting this book I didn't think it would be as good as Footsteps in Time, but was plesently surprised.

This book is really a continuation of the previous book. I highly suggest that a new person to the series read Footsteps in Time and maybe even Daughter of Time before reading. It isn't so much that you won't be able to pick up what is going on (the story line isn't complex and there are not too many characters), but the other books are good and it will add to your overall enjoyment of the boo

Second book in the alternate history where Edward 1 doesn't sweep Welsh rule out of Wales.

It's very good - it's a quick read but quite interesting. I liked how she introduced more characters. The narrative was told from the first person point of view of 3 different characters - sometimes it was hard to remember who was telling the story - but then I was reading the book with kids and cats running around the house. It was good enough that I didn't want to put it down...

Very interesting series - a

This is probably my favorite, so far, of this Welsh time travel series. I enjoy seeing what could have happened if Llewelyn had survived the ambush. (Of course,this could alter the fulfillment of Merlin's prediction of a Welshman - Henry VII - and start of the Tudor line, on the throne.) I liked that when David goes back to current day Pennsylvania (which is where my Welsh ancestors settled)for a short time, he realizes that his family's time travel to 13th century Wales is parallel, and they ha ...more
