Publisher's Summary

Warden of Time continues the story of time travel, romance, and adventure begun with Daughter of Time.
As both a modern man and medieval king, David is committed to transforming medieval England into his own version of Avalon. Not everyone supports his ideals, however, and having offended the pope by welcoming Jews and heretics into England, David is summoned to Canterbury to explain himself.
But when information comes to light that reveals the accusations against him have less to do with religion than with power and wealth, David finds himself on familiar ground - and at the center of a conspiracy that stretches from Ireland to Italy. Facing excommunication, a fickle populace, and a rebellion even by his fellow time travelers, he must decide what his throne is worth, and what he's willing to sacrifice to keep it.
Warden of Time is book eight in the After Cilmeri series.

The "said" books.

I love all of the books in the After Cilmeri series! They have great story lines!! However, it does make me crazy that the dialogue spoken in each book is always followed by he "said" or she "said" even when the character is asking a question. My son, who is a 19 yo English major, comments every time he walks into a room and hears me listening to one of these books "Oh no! You're listening to the "said" books again!" ...and he turns around and walks out because it's too painful for him to listen. Basic English classes teach to vary your vocabulary when writing to make it more interesting and engaging to the reader. For instance "Why are we taking this road?" she asked....she questioned, etc. He responded or he replied, exclaimed, demanded, etc. I keep hoping that each new book will be better in this respect, to no avail. In my opinion, the book editor(s) are really to blame. They should be catching something as basic as this and making recommendations to the author. In fairness, maybe I'm noticing it more on audio than I would if reading the book. Obviously since I've been through eight books in this series already, I'm managing to tune it out somewhat and ignore this annoyance...until my son walks back into the room and groans and retreats.

I feel like Laurel's performance has improved. She is loosening up and doesn't sound as stiff as she used to. That helps too.

Great part of this series but awful narration

I love this series and the story. The narration was the worst I've heard ever. I almost quit it but as I'd already paid for the title I continued. After a while the narration became slightly less annoying but only slightly. I won't purchase another audio book if I see this narrator's name.
