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.

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

Century clash

The deeper I get into the story the more I'm becoming addicted to the character in this series. This time Prince David takes a knight with him to the 21 century. After returning "home" he helps his father, Prince Llewellyn, recover from his death bed. He introduces new ideas for weaponry. The worst loss was the death of his favored horse. And, sometimes, a man just needs his mother. Touching!

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.

Sarah Woodbury is becoming one of my new favorite authors. Her writing puts me right in the middle of Wales during the 13th century and oh my goodness I am loving every minute of it. The characters are real and it makes the reader feel as though something like this could be possible. So looking forward to reading the rest of the series!!

But David needs to get back to his other world of Thirteenth Century Wales. He gathers information and supplies, the Bronwen drives them back...

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!

Fun enough. Needed to know what happened next after book 1. Number of things happened too fast like Ieuan & Browen ...

I have more books in the series. Not sure if I will try book 3. Ended well here for me.

Yes the idea of time travel and that the prince of Wales had a son by a 20th century woman is silly. The story went from bad to worse in the 3rd book. Lame dialogue, no depth. Not that books 1 and 2 are that great, but they were more focused. Not wasting my time with book 4.

I enjoyed this chapter of David and Ann's life. Can't wait for more. Interesting how they used 21 century technology in the 13 century

This story and After Cilmeri #1 were part of the same book - see comments for #1. In #2, David goes back to the present, gets help from a grad student and they both go back to 13th century Wales.
