November 1288. Bereft of a king or rightful heir, England hurtles towards civil war for the second time in a generation. When David, Prince of Wales, and his wife, Lili, travel to London to attend the wedding of William de Bohun and Princess Joan, they have no intention of involving themselves in local politics.
But as infighting leads to murder, David and Lili find themselves at the center of a far-reaching conspiracy. Trapped between history and legend, they must decide how much they are willing to sacrifice to save not only their own country, but the people of England as well.
Meanwhile, back in Wales, Llywelyn and Meg discover that time is no barrier to either adventure or trouble.
Children of Time, Book 4 in the After Cilmeri series, continues the story of Llywelyn, Meg, and their children in the medieval kingdom of Wales.

ACTION AND INTRIGUE ACROSS TIME AND DIMENSIONS!
The series as a whole ranks at the top, which is saying something because I average an audiobook a week with my commute. This one is my second favorite of the series, Prince of Time still tops the list
At the end, when David's ally barons and his father kneel at his feet, and he acquiesces to take the throne. I have that moment bookmarked as it's a major turning point in the series.
In this installment, Laurel Schroeder had to incorporate multiple accents for both genders, and in two time periods. She does this so seamlessly that the listener does not get lost or have a hard time keeping up with the story or which character she is portraying.
I found this installment to be more cerebral in the way it incorporates the intrigue of multiple plots in the middle ages that David spends his time navigating with the modern day national security activity that Meg and Llewelyn must elude. I could not help but laugh, though, at Goronwy's amazement with toilets and coffee (much like Ieuan's) and the conversation between Llewelyn and Goronwy at the well at Cilmeri
I have read the published books in this series and have listened to the audiobooks thus far. I have recommended the series to many friends and recommend the audiobooks equally because of the added depth to listening to Ms. Schroeder bring the characters and story to life.
