Though set in Scotland, rather than Wales, this installment was well written and the characters were heartfelt. I hope to see another book in the series, hopefully Cassie and Bronwen can get together and shock the court with their outlandish behavior. And Cullen definitely needs more time on stage to battle his demons. He is such a sweet guy, and I'm sure fatherhood would sit well with him. ...more

Good but I miss the main cast

Most of this book takes place in Scotland and while it gives callum a chance to shine, it also loses some of the charm. There are a lot of new characters introduced and not one but two new time travelers. Although to be fair one of them is not a surprise if you've been paying attention to how the mechanics of time travel work in this universe.

Honestly I was waiting for this. It's been a Loose end for a while.

That being said, I'm not a huge fan of Cassie. She's got

While I love this series and I'm always intrigued by the political landscape of medieval times, this was not my favorite book.

I wasn't able to connect as much with these characters. I think I just really missed David, Anna, Meg and that whole gang. I just so invested in their lives I want only want to read about this.

I will continue to read this series and looking forward to the next book in the series!

Fascinated by the idea of dealing with a different time, either forward or backward. That this excellently written book is set in Scotland makes it's a total win for me.

Woodbury manages two very believable characters from the 21st Century, and how they would handle a medieval life. Add in a mystery, political intrigue and DOING THE RIGHT THING, and the story is a total win.

Enjoyed getting to know Callum better and meeting Cassie, even though their ending was a foregone conclusion from the moment they met. Was good to see Marty, and know that he's doing well, and the move to Scotland was fun. It'll be interesting to see how the time travellers' influence works out there. ...more
I liked the basic story line. I liked all of the characters except for Cassie; she was a bit to moody.
As a fellow Welshphile, particularly of the medieval period, I am enjoying this series enormously. It’s like meeting a kindred spirit after a long drought without them. Add to that that my family tree traces back to the Stewart and Bruce kings I was a happy camper as I read Exiles in Time. It was a fun read and well researched. Despite that the cornerstone of the plot made no sense to me given that it was not David but Callum and Kirby who made the trip because if David was still alive and in pl ...more

This one lacked any depth for me. Both the characters and the storyline failed to inspire or intrigue. I think it was meant to be a romance, but there was little to none of that. I think the MC and his lady friend kissed twice. Maybe three times and held hands... If it was supposed to be a history makeover, I guess it sort of did that. As far as SF/F, just no. Other than taking a couple of modern people and throwing them back in time, with one of them holding a service pistol (I believe members ...more

Another exciting instalment from alternative Britain! No longer confined to only Wales this time we get to know some new characters and travel to Scotland. Callum is sent to Scotland by David to help with determining the next King of Scotland, on the way he meets Cassie who arrived in the alternative Middle Ages completely by accident and has been surviving on her wits alone in the Scottish highlands. Cassie helps Callum with help after an ambush and their adventure together begins.

3 souls joined

In this installment we venture to Scotland. Call in is sent by the king to seat a king for Scotland and hope to head off civil war among the clans. After his entourage is ambushed he meets Cassie. She turns out to have traveled when Meg flew. We also meet the pilot who survived and became a village leader. Cassie is really reluctant to continue the relationship with Callun when she learns he is an Earl.

Excellent story telling

This was like beginning a new story line with back history already in place. I loved the new relationship portrayed and believe they will be two of my favorite characters. Totally enjoyed the way political intrigue motivated the progression of the saga. Next book please.

The introduction of 2 new characters, Callum and Cassie, and the shifting of the setting to Scotland enlivens the series after the earlier focus on Wales and England. While I enjoyed the previous books (and loved the first couple), this one raced a mile a minute and I hated to put it down.

Right now, my greatest regret is only saving this series for when I'm on holiday abroad. Good stories breed good stories, and this semi-offshoot from the original series and trajectory is a very good story. Great stuff. ...more

Sarah really writes out of the ordinary stories. Well worth reading but not at night or you won't get up in time for work!

I love series, I love to know what happens next to characters and I hate the 'and they lived happily ever after' endings. I want to know what happens next, I want to know the childrens children names. Yes i'm that kind of person. Having said that I wished the author would have left more to the imagination in this series, I probably wouldn't have grown tired of it.

Spoilers ahead for this book and the ones before that:

Callum has been brought back in time with Llywellyn and Meg and now he's stuck but he's finding his footing with David, King of England and Prince of Wales. Of course, now Scotland is in need of a King and David isn't going to repeat the history he knows and try taking Scotland for himself especially after fighting long and hard to free Wales.

In comes Callum, who is sent into Scotland to help the crowning of a King along. Things going horribly wrong when Callum's party is ambushed and he's left

I was a bit worried throughout this book that , like some other series' I have read that the author would abandon the original characters, or make the original characters remain in the background. I was very relieved to find that this was not the case here. the author used this book to tell background stories of characters she has added.
I found this to be an eccentric book, and was glad that a few more main characters were added, it is my hope that the series will continue for a VERY long time!

Not my favorite book in the series. I like that Callum goes on his own adventure and finds another time traveler; however, it seemed very unnecessary. I missed all the main characters and the whole time I was waiting for that connection to tie in all the other books. I just felt that this venture into Scotland was a total disconnect from the other books. That being said, I still stayed up late reading and still bought the next book in the series. I truly think the author is very talented and enj ...more

This book was a bit different than the other ones in the series. It wasn't focused directly on Meg's family. Although, David was a huge part of the story, this book was focused on two individuals that Meg accidentally brought back in time with her in previous books. I enjoyed this little side trip to learn more about some of the other characters in the series. I am looking forward to reading more of this series. ...more

I am partial to time travel stories - they just wake up my imagination. I am also partial to fantasy placed in a medieval setting, whether the author adheres to the actual historical facts or not. After all history is some guy's fiction and relates it through his beliefs and prejudices. So "Exiles in Time" by Sarah Woodbury is time travel with a medieval setting. In itself that would pull a few stars from me. But is also well crafted and just plain fun to read. I give it five stars. ...more
