    Within the first few pages, I came upon the idea that David wanted to create a 'United States of Britain'. Now, as I'm a Brit, this so appalled me, that I nearly ditched the book. I would by far have preferred it to be referred to as the United Kingdom, however, I suppressed the urge to dump it and continued reading. And I'm glad I did, the United States bit faded to a different phrase, and the book was gripping in both time settings. The audacious bit towards the end made me laugh.

    Really? A double-decker bus? Of all things? Couldnt they have just walked next to the buildings when they collapsed? I cant take this serious. 10/10 its just another half attempt to get more modern people mad at them, so they can get kidnapped into the future again, to have another overused storyline for the next book. Oh and ofcourse another rebellion. Lots of info dumps. & another thing that annoys me, is when characters use modern day phrases, they have to explain what it means. Woodbury is a Really?

Oh and ofcourse another rebellion. Lots of info dumps. & another thing that annoys me, is when characters use modern day phrases, they have to explain what it means. Woodbury is aware we know exactly what is means right? Also incredibly selfish that they keep the stranded people hostage. It would take them all but a day to jump of a cliff and return. We have to believe that the time travel doesn't always work? You know what the problem is with Woodbury's concept? That it only works when she wants it too. Lazy writing. The 'Avalon' excuse is getting old as well, if you want to use cars and busses to get your character back into the past, atleast try to sell it. Shes taking us and her historical characters for damn fools. This series really doesn't deserve the ratings it gets. Outlander has similar ratings and is a much better time travel series. I would like to say that I am making a stand here and stopped reading but I know myself well enough, I cant really leave a series unfinished.

    Still fun but needs less unnecessary historical context I'm still enjoying these books but there are a few things I wish could be better. The first is the amount of historical info dump. I understand there's a fine line between background information, information the author needs to know but doesn't need to impart with the reader, and info dump. In this, there's a bit too much of the latter. Now I like history, even have a degree in the subject with a focus on England in the high Middle Ages.

But when I start skimming it's a problem. I will say Cassie is much improved over her previous appearances. And I really did not see the ending coming. That being said, I wish more time was spent with these characters considering the later books.

    There is just something about this series that keeps drawing me in. I love the fact that they can change history for the better in their parallel version of Wales/England. I also love the little trips to "Avalon". I always find it interesting to read about modern people ending up in medieval times. Every person reacts differently to their changed circumstances so it really makes for an interesting story. I can't wait to read the next book and see how these new people transition.

    Great series! I just love the characters in this series! The intrigue, the dialog between medieval and current time is really fun. I enjoy anything medieval: England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

    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.

    Incredible epic tale! I would not be at all surprised to discover that this author is a time-traveler and has ventured between this world and medieval Wales many times. Although I am not a history buff (nor a native of medieval Wales), her books are so full of detail that you feel as if you are actually experiencing it right along with them. Up until this book, the stories have had a bit of romance in them, but they are primarily time-travel/medieval history/action-adventure books. That being said Incredible epic tale!

That being said, I read the first book because it was presented as a romance, which is my favorite genre. I was not disappointed and have read each of them, loving them all. My only disappointment is that the series is coming to an end soon, but really, isn't that why a person keeps reading all of the books in a series, to see how it all turns out?

    I'm really not sure what this series is doing. I was really enjoying it but it seems to be losing some of its passion. I have been wanting Anna to get more of a story but being in the future which is just a big pile of government mess is less interesting than David and his father putting down yet another rebellion. For Llywelln's time period the constant betrayals seem completely relevant and most of the time are interesting. I do appreciate the time travel aspect but feel it just becomes a mess I'm really not sure what this series is doing. I was really enjoying it but it seems to be losing some of its passion.

    I was so annoyed with this book that I may have to be done with the series! There was finally more time travel but the way it went down was so stupid! I could not believe any of it from the moment they got there until the time they took an entire bus of people back with them. It is horrible that Meg can time travel when she pretty much pleases but take people away from their families and she won't return them? She will fight to get back to her loved ones and she will travel to save her husband b I was so annoyed with this book that I may have to be done with the series!

I hear the next book doesn't even have any time travel so I think I will move on.

    Seemed a little pessimistic about this timeline's near future, but I'm glad the gang's all together again, and I hope the busload of newbies doesn't continue to cause problems later on! If/when there are more books in this series, I'll definitely read them, but this is a reasonably satisfactory place to stop, at least. I'm not really left hanging, at least!

    The series took a weird turn in this book. I finished this book, but decided to take a break from the series, as the characters are getting stale, that might be my own fault and not that of the author, and so I am leaving this series for a bit, to return later...

    Another instalment in the Cilmeri saga and while again a great read, you get the feeling that the series is shifting gear away from an alternative history to something else...
