Overview

November 1288. Bereft of a king or rightful heir, England hurtles towards civil war for the second time in a generation. When David, Prince of Wales, and his wife, Lili, travel to London to attend the wedding of William de Bohun and Princess Joan, they have no intention of involving themselves in local politics.

But as infighting leads to murder, David and Lili find themselves at the center of a far-reaching conspiracy. Trapped between history and legend, they must decide how much they are willing to sacrifice to save not only their own country, but the people of England as well.

Meanwhile, back in Wales, Llywelyn and Meg discover that time is no barrier to either adventure or trouble.

Children of Time, book four in the After Cilmeri series, continues the story of Llywelyn, Meg, and their children in the medieval kingdom of Wales. Other books in the series include: Daughter of Time (a prequel), Footsteps in Time, Winds of Time, Prince of Time, Crossroads in Time, Exiles in Time, Castaways in Time, Ashes of Time, and Warden of Time.

Meet the Author

With two historian parents, Sarah couldn't help but develop an interest in the past. She went on to get more than enough education herself (in anthropology) and began writing fiction when the stories in her head overflowed and demanded she let them out. While her ancestry is Welsh, she only visited Wales for the first time while in college. She has been in love with the country, language, and people ever since. She even convinced her husband to give all four of their children Welsh names. With half a million books sold, Sarah is the author of 19 novels and 13 novellas, all set in medieval Wales. She makes her home in Oregon.

Sarah Woodbury's After Cilmeri series continues with Children of Time, and it is as well written and engrossing as the previous volumes. She has a way of writing that pulls you in and holds you until the last page. And then has you wanting more.

I loved this book. Read Daughter of Time first (FREE). I have since read the rest of the series so far through Exiles in Time. I hope she is going to write more. They were all real page turners. I couldn't wait to see what was going to happen next. I read 7 books in less than 2 weeks (I did have to go to work and sleep). I'm as addicted to them as I am to Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series. I like books about history, time travel and romance, and this series didn't disappoint. There was enough suspense in them that you didn't know for sure what was going to happen. There were some funny parts when Meg or her son David took someone back to their future time. When they were in medieval Wales and England, I felt like I was there. I didn't know much about 13th Century Wales (or modern day Wales for that matter), so I learned some things. It was interesting. I would recommend this whole series to anyone who likes any of these genre, and to those who don't necessarily like them, but want to give it a try. I'm glad I read them, and will be posting this review for each of the books in the series, just in case someone finds one of the others first. It's best to read them in order: Daughter of Time (prequel), Footsteps in Time (Book One), Winds of Time (between book 1 & 2), Prince of Time (Book Two), Crossroads in Time (Book Three), Children of Time (Book Four) and Exiles in Time.

I loved this book! Best in the series so far. Great job Sarah Woodbury, I was looking forward to this book since the third (forth with the prequel) came out, and you didn't disappoint! In this edition the story focuses on David and Lili, and Llywelyn and Meg. It starts out with David with his parents getting ready to take off to London to attend the wedding of William de Bohun. When Llywelyn seems to have a heart attack, luckily they are on a balcony with a 40 ft drop so Meg and Goronwy jump with him as previously arranged between the two of them when Llywelyn had been in poor health since the summer when he was swept up in the storm during battle (in the last book). This way he could get medical care in Meg's world, present time. This left David as ruler of Wales in the meantime and having to make decisions on his own without his father the King for the first time. It seemed bad timing with the trip to Wales, but maybe it was great timing to force David to find confidence in himself. That was not an easy task since he was still fearing for the life of his father, and the outcome of the trip that Llywelyn, Meg, and Goronwy took. To add on to this stream of events along with the wedding happening in London there would also be a meeting of the nobles of Wales and England to find who would finally take the thrown of England which has been empty for three years. Without making a decision it would surly mean civil war in England. On his journey to London, David realizes that not only do the people of Wales believe he is the reincarnation of Arthur, but so do the people of England and they want him to be King! This was a great addition to the series. I was really excited that Llywelyn and Meg were a focus again, which they haven't been a focus together since Daughter of Time, which before this book was my favorite of the series. I love the relationship between the two of them! It was also fun to finally see David and Lili together as a couple since it was more teased about in the past couple books. I really have nothing bad to say about this book, except I wanted more! This was the first book in awhile that I put it down and just wanted to keep reading because I wanted to know more of the characters and what happened next. Saying that I better mention that this book does not end in a cliff hanger. It has a great ending. You will just have to read to find out what happens to all the characters!

I devoured the entire series in a matter of weeks. Of all the books in the series this is my second most favorite book. But honestly you can't go wrong with any of the books. They are all written with so much detail in characters as well as in the background that these story lines are set in. I do recommend reading them in order. With the exception of one book that was kind of like it to be continued the rest are standalone books that don't require you to read the previous book but I would definitely recommend starting with daughters of time.

Plot and good writing move these stories. It's all about the story, and would be excellant tween or teen reading as there is nothing inappropriate. This is written so an adult can enjoy it just as much (if not more, because there are few historical fantasies written for adults these days that aren't full of gratuitous sex). The characters are fully formed and act age appropriate. Don't judge the series by the prequel where Meg meets Llwelyn, though, as that was not as good as the rest of the series. Start with the prequel, but then read the next book before you decide whether or not to continue with the series. I almost missed out on a great series, as I was tempted to stop reading after the prequel because Meg is rather young and insipid acting in that one and it didn't seem the story was going anywhere a million books before it hadn't gone. Hang in there and read the first actual book in the series, and you'll be glad you did. Meg is older and very likeable in the rest of the series, and the stories are great.
