Publisher's Summary

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.

Footsteps in Time is the first book in the After Cilmeri Series.

The Adventure gets Better!

I liked the prequel, “Daughter of Time”, so if you haven’t read/heard that, by all means start with it. And if you have already read “Daughter”, I can truly say that “Footsteps” is even better! There’s a youthful energy, blended with days of yore, and blended well. It’s touted as written for young adults, but with its immersion in history and its often complex situations of people in the power structure, it never ceases to keep this adult engaged and well along for the ride. Anna and David, sister and brother, are very different personalities, so their view of this part of the world and time period and how they engage it differ vastly. And for those that yearn for an artifact from the future to play a role, a small but fun one, you will get your wish.

The first person narrative does switch between David and Anna, but you get used to it quite quickly and quite frankly, it works.

The narration is very good. The narrator has a smoother pace than “Daughter”, so if you found some of that too fast paced, you’ll find “Footsteps” is just right.

Welsh adds authenticity

I love this story and the series. Hearing the Welsh characters read with the correct accent and pronunciation makes this book come alive in a new way. Great read!

Wonderful series

Any additional comments?

This is a wonderful series for anyone who likes alternate history. I have read all the books but it is a pleasure to listen to them too, and to learn how to pronounce all those Welsh words!

Fascinating blend of history and fiction

The story captures one's imagination and makes it all seem plausible. You are drawn into the lives of the 3 people thrown into the past who find themselves part of the royal family of Wales.

A "what if" that's much better than reality

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. I really like this series of books as well as the audio versions. This is something that any medieval/Welsh history fan will enjoy.

What other book might you compare Footsteps in Time: A Time Travel Fantasy to and why?

Anything else that this author has written. The other Cilmeri books and the Lion of Wales series. Even Sharon Kay Penman's Welsh trilogy.

What does Laurel Schroeder bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

We get some flavor for how Welsh and Welsh-speakers might sound. Makes the story at bit more real.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Several. When David and Anna realize whose life they just saved. When Llewellyn tells David that he's David's father. David and Math's post-battle conversation. When Anna and David meet a much loved person again (I won't spoil who it is).

Any additional comments?

First full book in the After Cilmeri series. Read this and you'll be grabbing book 2 immediately afterward.

I couldnt finish it!

The storyline might have been very interesting if written a bit better . Alot of choppy sentences and immature dialog. What bothered me the most was the narrator! She spoke quickly in a monotone, with short , clipped words. She reminded me of Debbie Downer on Saturday night Live. It seemed like all was doom and gloom. I really wanted to read this series but wont even try finishing this one .

Immersion in history!

This series is fabulous. I read the books and couldn't wait to listen to the audio. The narrator does a great job with the different voices and accents and I felt like I had also been transported back on time with the characters. I highly recommend it.

Enjoyed it!

Good continuation of the story! Time travel stories are interesting on their own, but this one has a lot of historical detail of the time. The audiobook helps with learning the pronunciations of the Welsh names and geography. I have previously read the book and enjoyed the audio version! A great medium to enjoy the story.
