Summary

November 1291. Meg and Llywelyn gather their family at Rhuddlan Castle to celebrate their seventh anniversary and David's 23rd birthday. But the joyful reunion goes grievously awry when an old enemy raises the banner of rebellion, followed immediately by an even more catastrophic betrayal by an old friend.

Meanwhile, facing war at every turn and still haunted by his decision to leave Cassie and Callum in the modern world, David chooses a dangerous path forward, one that will either change the course of the future forever or burn his world to ashes.

Ashes of Time is book seven in the After Cilmeri series.

Great story but welsh pronounced words not right

Great story, love Sara Woodbury books but the found it hard to listen to narrator's pronunciation of welsh words as living on welsh boarder is not the way its spoken, all in all if you can get past that a very good book series :)

Book 7 and still gripped!

Sarah never disappoints with the creativity and the fast moving pace of her plots! A double decker Cardiff bus in 1292? Yes and yet utterly believable in the context of this time travelling series.
Whilst the plots are still as gripping in book 7 (it's 8 really), for me it's the characters I love most, every one of them is relatable and consistent. I know them all so well they've become part of my life.

Great book

Storyline is great as in all Sarah Woodbury's books. Settings, background history and characters transport you to another world. The others in the series so far, I have read on my kindle. This is the first that I have listened to on Audible. Being a Welsh speaker, who lived for 30 yrs in Wales, it was hard at first to understand the pronunciation of names and places in this book. I will probably find this in other audiobooks as well, depending on their setting.
(this book was gifted to me)

An interesting series

It continues to bring in unexpected plot diversions that keeps the reader's interest high with changes in location and year generated by time travel.

No Place Like Home!

Would you consider the audio edition of Ashes of Time to be better than the print version?

This is the one installment of the series that I preferred the print version, likely because the modern day story is the more dominant story and it's easier to keep track of its timeline because it takes place in modern times and the places and things are largely familiar.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Although we don't spend much time with him, I have a warm spot for Cassie's grandfather, Art. He just seems so cool with everything, like the modern day counterpart to Llywelyn.

Which scene was your favorite?

The very first one...with the extended family all together before the events of the story unfold. While that may seem odd given all the excitement in not just this book but the series as a whole, this is the only time they are all in the same place at the same time and interacting as any normal family celebrating family milestones.

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

"I prayed my whole life that such a fate would be mine." 'Nuff said.

Every single book....

Every one is masterful story telling. I highly recommend both this author and any narration by Laurel Schroeder.

Love laurel Schroeder

She’s made all other audiobooks pale by comparison. All I do listen to all the books trying to find her or someone with her style .

Now for the book, I know it’s for less mature audience, I love almost all of the books and, wish David, Meg and the rest of the cast didn’t disappear. Thank you Sarah Woodbury

Love this time travel historical novel!

If you could sum up Ashes of Time in three words, what would they be?

Wicked good read!

What other book might you compare Ashes of Time to and why?

It's like others in the series - other books don't compare!

Which character – as performed by Laurel Schroeder – was your favorite?

Oooh, this is hard. David probably.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Back to the Future Meets the Princess Bride- lol

Any additional comments?

Obsessed by the series. Loved reading the books. But the audible version - wow!

Another fantastic book

This was a great story. I was happy to Callen and everyone come to the past and see what wonderful skills the new people have and what can now be accomplished. Ready to start the next in the series. Wonderful book.
