Outcasts in Time (After Cilmeri #16) By Sarah Woodbury

I LOVE a series. I especially LOVE this series. The women are strong, smart and capable. The time traveling is a blast and you're kept on the edge of your seat. I couldn't put them down, the BEST description for this series is FUN FUN FUN!

I am dying over the fact that I will finish the series within the next week!

Sarah Woodbury Great series

This is Volume 19. I am looking forward to Volume 99. Waiting, then reading the next in this series is like awaiting a letter from a family member you haven't seen in a long time and want to know how they are doing, that all is right in their life. So, when do we get #20?
Sarah Woodbury Craziest ride yet!!!! Brilliant!!!!💜

Wow!!!! I absolutely adore this series. When this book was released I went back and started back at the beginning straight through to this one. My word...I adore each and every one, but this one so far takes the cake! There is SOOOOO much craziness, excitement, intrigue, and just jaw dropping moments leaving you screaming for more more more. I can it wait to see what's next for King David and everyone he cares about. Sarah Woodbury The problem with this book and author is that because it and she is totally brilliant, you read it very quickly. Once you start you can not put it down. I am sure this creates pressure on Sarah Woodbury, because we want more of the same. So I look forward to the next book in the series. By the way I recommend her series of videos on YouTube that help fill in the background to her books. Sarah Woodbury Awesome

A rollercoaster ride for sure. From David's travels to Lilis escape from Paris. It is an awesome ride and well worth the wait. Sarah Woodbury

READ Outcasts in Time (After Cilmeri #16)

Join David and his friends and family for the next installment in the After Cilmeri series!

Last we heard from David, he'd allowed George to abduct him at the behest of the CIA, for the stated purpose of forcing him to time travel between Earth Two and Avalon. Meanwhile, Lili and the refugees from Paris were floating down the River Seine, making for the English Channel. And King Philippe was blithely reconstituting his government, unaware that the battle of wills between him and David hadn't really ended the way he thought. And that, in fact, it hadn't even ended.

David and his companions have pulled off the heist of the millennium. But as David encounters the unexpected in Avalon, and Lili and the refugees face danger at every bend in the river, they must face the hard truth that the best laid plans go awry at the moment of contact with the enemy. And no one ends up exactly where they intended, either in space ... or in time.

Outcasts in Time follows immediately after the previous book in the series, Unbroken in Time.

Outcasts picks up immediately following the end of Unbroken. David and his friends are still trying to rescue Jews from France when David gets taken back to Avalon.

These books are becoming more action/adventure stories with less focus on character development and interaction, but I don’t mind. I especially love the detailed descriptions of all the places the characters visit. Sarah’s research on the settings for her books is impeccable.

Once again, there is no resolution to the events taking place in Avalon. The door is wide open in that part of the story. My one complaint would be that George’s change in attitude was so abrupt and without apparent reason that I didn’t buy into it. But he is clearly being set up as a main player in the future. I also missed Callum in this book. He is one of my favorite characters and he went through a lot in the last book. So his complete absence was a surprise.

That said I am a devoted fan of After Cilmeri and reread them regularly, though 19 books in, that’s getting harder to do. I selfishly and unrealistically wish this series would never end. Sarah Woodbury Good

It was good. I love these characters. I thought what David went through was emotional and unbelievable how far people will go to further their agenda.

I have to say though; that he never really accomplished what he set out to while in the future. Again it felt like he was a ping pong ball going back and forth with not much really moving the story forward. The travelers (the family and their companions) never get to really enjoy or experience the future world and the modern conveniences in any real way. Then the traveler(s) returns to the past just in time for a battle or political situation.

I miss the core characters that made me fall in love with this series being in the books. There used to be more interaction between Meg, David, Anna, Browen and their spouses. In recent books they rarely see each other or have more than a few lines of dialogue. Even David and Lili who live together hardly have more than a few lines of dialogue in the entire book. My love of the characters keep me sticking with the series. However, it seems the core characters hardly appear in any meaningful way or for any length of time. I hope that changes. Sarah Woodbury Wow!

By the nineteenth book in a time-travel adventure series, you'd think the author would run out of ideas, but this was one of the most exciting installments yet! Edge of your seat, page-turning excitement! I can always depend on Woodbury to deliver a thrilling plot with believable characters and heroes I can root for. David has to be one of my most favorite literary characters of all time. Loved it! Sarah Woodbury Outcasts in Time is the latest book in Sarah Woodbury's After Cilmeri series. This is one of my all-time favorite book series. If you enjoy time travel romance, speculative fiction that wonders how history might have changed if something had or had not been done differently, or just interesting stories about how people use or abuse power, you would enjoy this book (but you really need to read the whole series in order).

I've been addicted to this series for years, so it would be difficult for me not to like one of the books in it. This one focuses on the theme of the use and abuse of power. At the end of the previous novel, King David, ruler of the Confederated States of Britain, had been abducted by a CIA agent and taken to a secret facility in Oregon, 2023. This novel switches back and forth between the events going on in France in August of 1295 and the events at the secret facility in August of 2023. There are interesting comments on the character and history of the Knights Templar, church leaders, and Kings in the medieval world while examining power struggles amongst world powers and specifically the powers within secret agencies in the modern world. In both worlds the power struggles between men and women, and dominant vs marginalized people groups are also addressed.

Don't let labels deter you from considering this series. I've seen it listed as young adult fiction, but it really is a series for all ages. It does take a healthy knowledge/understanding of history and a willingness to view those in authority with a certain amount of skepticism. Ultimately, this book is hopeful but somewhat realistic. Leadership takes sacrifice and hard work. Change comes with a great deal of risk and the potential for a great deal of reward. Sarah Woodbury Another great book!

I could not put this book down. There are lots of characters to keep track of, but if you've kept up with the series, you know most of them. Reading this novel was like seeing old friends again, and becoming fascinated with what has happened since you last got together. David continues to be a great leader, and is surrounded by so many competent people. I can't wait for the next installment. Sarah Woodbury
