    Oooooh kids... you gotta place nice or someone's gonna lose an eye or an arm. Play by Hoyle's Rules, at least! Oh gosh. I guess something went wrong.This book had a whole bunch of great time-travel locations, some of which I'd give an arm to visit, too. To see the Neanderthals and Modern Humans coexisting and working together? See the harsh conditions and the Mammoths? Maybe sneak one back to the future? No, no, we wouldn't do that. Certainly not...

    I wanted to finish the book last night but around 1:30am I fell asleep several times so I gave up. Probably not a bad thing because the last few chapters were not only exciting and tragic, the very end left me grinning from ear to ear. :DThis book was one hell of a ride. Since St. Mary's loses so much personnel so often, they had to come up with a new training program. Max was put in charge of that while Peterson took over her job. She got 5 trai...

    What could possibly go wrong?What indeed?! I mean, hasn't Max learnt that You Never Should Say That! :O)Anyway, another great instalment in the St Mary's adventures. Taylor is just amazing at turning seemingly dry historical events into vivid sequences, often very violent, always fascinating. In this instance, we have a trip to the Valley of the Kings and the Stone Age (Cro Magnons and Neanderthals co-existing, not forgetting mammoths of course),...

    That three might be a little harsh, but it'll be lost in the sea of 5-star ratings anyway, and is there for a reason, despite how wonderful many things in this book were. (This is the first novel I've listened to, after really liking the narrator on the short stories, which I'd read but were being offered free on Audible. I wish it were possible to give a separate rating for performance, as I loved it so much I may get 4 & 5 on audio although I h...

    This one was so much fun!!!! It follows Max in a new role as training officer. She's in charge of the course for 5 new trainee historians as they try to settle in to the crazy world of St Marys. What I found most enjoyable about this one is just how many jumps into the past we have and the way the characters keep being built upon. I've really really enjoyed getting to see some of the side characters come into their own and get backstories, and th...

    Read all my reviews on http://urlphantomhive.booklikes.com What Could Possibly Go Wrong?Anyone asking this in relation to St Mary's must be either very brave or very stupid. The disaster magnets are back and the chaos will only be bigger this time as Max is set to train a new bunch of them. Lots of nice adventures in this one, but it is slightly darker then the previous one, I think.While I've enjoyed all the novels in this series so far, it was ...

    I KNEW IT I KNEW IT I KNEW IT I KNEW IT. *BOUNCES AROUND HAPPILY*Much of this book hearkens back to the first, much to Dr. Bairstow's amusement. With Max and Peterson switching jobs we get to see Max in a new role, that of a teacher. In typical Maxwell fashion, though, she changes things up a bit and through the switch we get to see how much she has grown as a character. Assured in her role as a historian she now grapples with how to handle stude...
  • Darlene
    Another wonderful installment! I love how I feel as if I'm romping thru time and history with the gang from St. Mary's. It never crossed my mind that mammoth sh!t could be so brutal...ewwww. Could've easily listened to this in one sitting,but I wanted to take my time and make the experience last as long as possible.
  • Nicole
    Ok! I awoke this morning to find this title had arrived safely on my Kindle. I had planned an early morning swim, but like the team from St Mary's, anything I had planned quickly went astray, as I got myself stuck into the the latest chapter in the Chronicle of St Mary's and by lunchtime I was regretting that I had read it so fast! Thank goodness that there is a short story due out for Christmas or I would have to suffer withdrawal symptoms!Well ...

    Dr. Maxwell, feisty time traveling historian, is recovering from injuries incurred during her last adventure and as such is given the "safe" assignment of training the next group of would-be-time-traveling-historians. Of course something goes terribly wrong in every one of their time jumps, from accidentally stealing mammoths to discovering historians hiding out pretending to be historical figures. I do enjoy my time with the St. Mary's crew, who...
  • Madame Mona Lisa
    This is such a great series. Loved how this one ended!!!
  • Richard Eyres
    This book i really enjoyed. Maybe its the school room (with a massive difference) type of story, or it was the historical locations visited, or how the characters are developing - whatever it is, i liked it.This book sees Maxwell as a tutor - training 5 new recruits to be historians. Of course, not everything goes to plan, as you would expect for St Mary's.I am going through these books very fast, and the next book is the last that has been relea...
  • puppitypup
    Adventure/Romance So Funny!These just get funnier and funnier. I love this series, so much so that I'm planning to re-read book one as soon as I finish. I don't believe I've ever done that with a series before.This one has half a dozen bad words and no intimate scenes that I recall.
  • Karsyn
    Another great St Mary's, though I could have done without the very end. :( Definitely thought that the "twist" was kind of lame. It didn't end up being as good as a reason as I hoped. Still, it was really enjoyable as always. Now I have to wait for the next one to come out. *pouts* Want it now!
  • Jacey
    The sixth St Mary’s novel – only one more to go before I’ve caught up with all of them – and they’re still not getting old. After the incidents in No Time Like The Past, Max is on light duties for six months while she fully recovers from various injuries, so she swaps departments with Petersen and takes on the mantle of head of training. It should be easy because there are no trainees… until there are and Max has to not only devise a ...
  • Bram Vandenbussche
    I lost count of how many times this book made me laugh out loud. The cast feels so familiar by now that reading it feels like coming home.
  • Jennifer Rayment
    Another outstanding installment of the crazy adventures of my favourite time travelers --- oops I mean Historians. I knew it was going to be fabulous just by the title alone & if you have read any other book in this brilliant series, you know, things ALWAYS go horribly wrong. I have mentioned before that the highlight of this series is the characters and the quick wit and this one does not disappoint. Oh yeah and truly enjoyed the little quip abo...
  • Kathrin
    This book adds new characters to the series - some I liked more than others. Although, I thought in the beginning that paying attention to 5 new people was overwhelming some of them might become new favorites and I hope to read more about them in the future. Great story and awesome destinations to jump to.There were important links to former books and I'm not sure I like the way they were resolved but in the end, the book is a good example why I ...
  • Sheryl
    I wish I could give a book more than 5 stars because I would definitely give more to this one (and honestly, probably a few of the others in this series, as well). Absolutely fabulous. Exactly what I have come to expect from Jodi Taylor and the folks at St. Mary's. This is an absolutely brilliant series. And, as usual, wonderfully narrated by Zara Ramm. If you haven't started this series, please do so, you won't be sorry (and be certain to start ...
  • Rebecca
    After making myself reread the whole series before this one (OK, 'making myself' is a bit harsh, it wasn't a chore at all); I was very impatient to get to this book and I wasn't disappointed! More madcap St Mary's adventures with new faces (and old ones) thrown in for good measure. You can tell Max has grown up since book 1 which is sad in a way but gives the timeline continuity (a first for St Mary's, I'm sure) and the ending was just what I wan...
  • Barbara L. Trapp
    Yes!!!!! Couldn't wait for this book to come out!!! I love all of the St MARY'S books by Ms Taylor. Have them and read them at least twice each!! PLEASE Keep writing more. Her humor is priceless if you're needing books to make you laugh outloud thThis is the series to get. I started reading slowly just to make it last longer. Love love them!!! Bravo
  • Angela
    Brilliant!! I think this may be one of my favourites of the series. Some new characters have been introduced which has added a new slant onto the storylines. Fast paced, full of action, full of humour as usual but also some quite traumatic sections regarding medieval "justice"!This was a fantastic book which I wish I hadn't read so quickly.
  • Gina Boyd
    How is it that these fun, funny books always make me cry at least once?
  • Lorrie
    I laughed through this entire seriesTime travel, history, romance...this series has all that and humor to pull it all together. I couldn't put it down.
  • Arminzerella
    Max is now heading up St. Mary’s historian training program and breaking in five new recruits. She’s revamped the program so trainees get more experience running real missions earlier on in their careers. It’s hectic, harrowing, and often hilarious. Jodi Taylor provides more exciting glimpses of historical events including the immolation of Joan of Arc, cooperation between different species of humanoids, mammoth hunting, and more. Fans of t...
  • Danielle Mccoy
    I had to get this book (and the next) from England. It was totally worth it. I still love these characters and find all the problems that occur from time traveling.
  • Bo
    The series is becoming more and more repetitive but there were still a few awfully funny moments that I really enjoyed. I guess I'm in too deep to stop now.
  • MB (What she read)
    That was lots of fun.
  • Brenda Springall
    SuperbAs with all the other St Mary's stories, I just did not want this story to end. As usual, the story hurtles along at breakneck speed swallowing you up in the process. I read the book in two days as, once started, I couldn't put it down. Jodi Taylor's imagination is utterly superb as she brings the historical event completely to life from a modern day viewpoint. I love all the characters and really wish I could I spend just one hour with the...
  • Robin
    Let's start with what I can't say enough good things about. The Narrator.She's fantastic. I can't imagine anyone else doing these voices. She's consistent, making each character recognizable even with out context and she Seamlessly transitions between so many accents that it's dizzying. Great job.Having said that, this was my least favorite book so far. I still enjoyed it but between some of the normal irksome holes and where Max's personal life ...
