"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: Prince of Time, the second book in the After Cilmeri series, continues the story of David and Anna, two teenagers catapulted back in time to alter history and save the medieval kingdom of Wales. 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."

My review:
David and Anna go to medieval Wales in this time travel book. Anna was a character in Daughter of Time but David was not. In this book, David finds his father and learns of his heritage.
No sex and basic bad language in any medieval book. It is a good read for young people who want to learn some history. I know little of Welsh history and found myself going to the Net for more information.
It can be a stand alone read but I suggest the reader read Daughter of Time, the prequel. I downloaded it from
This book did not hold my attention as much as Daughter of Time but I still found it interesting.
Anyone interested in time travel and historical romance will find this a good book.
I am giving it a 4 star.
I got Footsteps in Time from my library system
This book is dedicated to Anna
