During a time of great upheaval and unrest in Ireland, as men and women run to take up arms against the tyranny and occupation of the British Empire, the lives of three women are forever altered, and thereby inextricably linked over the span of a century.

Mary Doyle arrives in Dublin in 1913, doomed, she fears, to a life of domestic service. Instead, however, she finds herself deeply affected by the social and political turmoil of a fledgling nation struggling for independence. Suddenly, all that was once inevitable is no longer a certainty as she is embroiled in the very heart of the Easter Rising.

Scarlett O’Hara has had many hurdles to cross in her life, not least her name. A successful political correspondent, she finds herself at a crossroads when one error of judgement jeopardises everything she has worked so hard to overcome and achieve. In the process of rebuilding her life, Scarlett faces the difficult and ultimate choice of starting all over again.

At ninety-three years old, Eileen Chiarello thought her time for adventure and wonder was over, before a chance meeting with Scarlett draws her back to Ireland, the land her parents fought for and loved so passionately. Now, at the end of her life, Eileen has the opportunity to fulfil a promise she never thought she could.

Historically sweeping and beautifully written, Shadow of a Century draws a circle around the Irish Rebellion and carefully traces the magnitude of its significance against the backdrop of three women’s lives across history.

Looking at ereaderiq, Post-Human Omnibus was has been free 37 times since Dec 2013. This data point alone get me skeptical about this series and author. It (along with Atlantis Gene series) has been sitting in my Kindle/Audible library already filled with John Scalzi and other proven modern Sci-fi writers.

Can anyone who have read these series comment on the worthiness of the time spent?

I've read/listened to the series and enjoyed it. Maybe I shouldn't comment though because I made the thread and my main genre of reading is Dystopian/ SciFi / Apop books.
When series are free even though they are included with my KU subscription I still add them to my collection I don't have to DL them Smilie

Also I have listened to the Atlantas Gene series and that is a great series to read/listen to in entirety. Another good one by him is Departure. Also Matthew Maher writes some good books Nomad series and Atopia Chronicles.

as a new kindle author I noticed that if you are exclusive with amazon you can either make your book free for 5 days every 90 days or make on sale for 7 days.

You can get a lot more readers if you make it free rather than make your book on sale. That's something readers don't know about amazon. The way they make their contract for authors.

So 37 times seems right to me, I'm going to start making me book available for free ever 2-3 weeks too.

As for the series, I loved it... but if you like John Scalzi i wouldn't recommend the post-human series to you.
