Overview

Two teenagers catapulted back in time to alter history and save the medieval kingdom of Wales ...

Footsteps in Time: In December of 1282, English soldiers ambushed and murdered Llywelyn ap Gruffydd, the Prince of Wales. His death marked the end of Wales as an independent nation and the beginning of over seven hundred years under the English boot.

Footsteps in Time is the story of what might have happened had Llywelyn lived.

And what happens to the two teenagers who save him.

Prince of Time: David and his man-at-arms, Ieuan, find themselves alone and on the run from a company of English soldiers who've sworn vengeance for the recent death of their king. Meanwhile, Llywelyn lays on his deathbed from a traitor's arrow. And once again, it is David and Anna, and all they represent, that holds the key to the survival of Wales.

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.

Great on the edge of your seat ride into the past! This edition holds both the first and second books of the After Cilmeri series. I would give the first book, Footsteps In Time, only 4 stars. The characters in this series are fun and lovable. The story was great, the big fault of the book was that the flow was too quick and some of the events weren't explained enough so you were left with a few questions or wanting to know more details. The first half of the book had a time frame of 2 years. Footsteps centers around a brother and sister that you learn about who they are in the prequel that focuses on their mom. The book is set about 12 years after the prequel when both are now teenagers. The book switches viewpoints between Anna and David which helps the story and is done quite well so that you aren't confused. Since I loved the relationship between Meg and Llywelyn it was a little disheartening not to hear from their viewpoint, but I understand that Daughter of Time was more to set up the series rather then be the focal point of the series. Footsteps was cut into 2 parts due to a big event happening. Finally towards the end of the book the author became more thorough and detailed which was appreciated. Footsteps does have an ending but I understand why they have the double bundle since Footsteps ends with such a game changer. You just need to keep reading. After reading Daughter, Footsteps, and Winds, Prince of Time definitely has the best storyline, and it went back to the quality of Daughter of Time that I enjoyed so much. The main characters are David, Ieuen, and Bronwen. Following the story of David coming up as a true leader of Wales and of course involves returning to the 21st century in some fashion. That part is frustrating because you want them to be in Wales, but its part of the story line so it needs to happen. I believe the author used this problem to an advantage and it made for a great read. Every book adds good characters that work well with the book. I believe this book was more successful then Footsteps since the timeline was only a few months rather then a few years. I gave 5 stars even though Footsteps was a 4 stars to me because Prince was so good. Definitely recommend this series.

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.

Enjoy the nod to history! Every chapter switches the point of view which can slow the read but helps endear them to the reader

A great read. Interesting characters in a unique situation - changing history . . . maybe? Very absorbing and could not put down. Highly recommended for interesting reading - even history.

I enjoyed reading both of these books. Looking forward to getting the rest of the books in the After Cilmaeri series. I had a hard time putting these books down when reading them while traveling to and from work. Made time go very fast. A great way to escape the real world around us, with our every day troubles. Love this series.

These 2 books are part of a series but can be enjoyed on their own. Imagine finding yourself in medieval Wales instead of a car crash during a whiteout. Then finding out your mother had been transported 14 years earlier. What would it be like to give up your cell phone, TV, and even simple things like sugar or a toothbrush. These stories are well written and will keep you eager for more.

An entertaining time travel series. Hopping back and forth from midevil times to current years makes for a never ending story that leaves the reader on the edge of their seat wondering who will end up in what year and it is hard to decide where you want to see the characters end up! Enjoy

I am a direct descendant of Prince Llywelyn. This series is a brilliant rendition of the might-have-been world represented by the aftermath of Builth Wells.

in Footsteps in Time part of the story Anna and David are in present time headed to pick up a cousin that is at a nearby friends house because their cousins mother could not make it home in time. As they are driving on back roads they run into a wall of snow that takes them to another century. And into a field of men in mail suits and fighting with swords. They run over some of them and wind up rescuing the Prince of Wales at that time period. There is plenty of suspense and entertainment reading this story. In the second part of the book, Prince of Time, David and Ieuan get captured by Sir John de Falkes and are held under the blacksmiths rooms. Falkes nephew lets them out and they escape only to get in trouble and Ieuan gets shot in the back with an arrow. David picks him up and jumps off the cliff and catapults them into the future where David Is from, Where they meet Bronwen. Further excitement continues and it is hard to stop reading.
