"Two teenagers are 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, wounded by a traitor's arrow. And once again, it is David and Anna, and all that they represent, that holds the key to the survival of Wales."
My Review:
This is the second book of this series. The teenagers are the daughter and son of Meg (Marged) and they have been sent back to the middle ages in Wales in this time travel book. Anna is in the Daughter of Time as well as Meg.
The book can be read on its own but I recommend the reader first read Daughter of Time. ( I found it on amazon.con as a free download).
As in the first book, the chapters have the characters telling the story. It is not confusing and the author does a good job of getting to know each character.
No sex and the basic bad language as in any medieval book. A good read for young people and those who like time travel and historical romance books.
I liked the history of Wales and descriptions of food, clothes, surroundings and so forth. .

I checked out this book from my library system.
I am giving it a 5 star because although I did not like it as much as the first book, it held my attention and gave me some historical facts.
