Book Description:
After Cilmeri is about Meg and Llywelyn ap Fruffydd, the last Prince of Wales and their altered history. See Llywelyn died in 1282, ambushed by the English. But in this alternate tale Meg goes back in time, falling in love with Llywelyn and their story continues through out the series along with that of their children. Over the books, Meg and family pick up friends and family additions that continue the tale and change history.

My Thoughts on the Book
I started reading this series in The Big Book of Time Travel which featured the story Daughter of Time. This story had me hooked so I stopped to read more of the books only to realize just how many there are. I read all the published book and discovered a really good series.

I enjoyed Llywelyn and Meg's lovestory, their children growing up, Meg's adventures, the addition of family members both born and by marriage and even tales centered around some of the secondary characters.

It actually wasn't until the sixth book that I felt the series started to lag. Woodbury kept up a constant shift of time and characters but as the story progressed the present timeline developed a more distopian feel and because more about the government than about the characters.

I'm skeptical about reading the latest book which just recently came out after finishing Ashes in Time.

Some of my favorite characters are David, Meg, Callum, Cassie, and Lili.

Despite my love of certain characters, I'm not sure if I want to continue this series.

When I read the title The Daughter of Time, I immediately thought of a another book I read (by Josephene Tey) A famous 1951 detective novel in which an off duty policeman (recovering from a gun shot wound) decides to solve a historical crime allegedly by Richard III...Quite a good book. Obviously this wasn't the same book! LOL.. No I don't read Young Adult or even some adult fantasy. The complete title by the way is: Truth is the daughter of time, not of authority. (Frances Bacon) I love that saying.
