    What? A total guilty pleasure that doesn't have much to do with romance, vampires, or werewolves? One that reads so easy and so effortlessly and so addictively you might want to classify this as a class A substance?And OMG we're ALL able to abuse this shit?Yeah, we are. Just for the price of a book or a whole damn series. Including short stories. We can GET OUR FIX.What's even better? Oh yeah, it's SF, time travel, and SO MUCH HISTORY for all us ...

    This rollercoaster event was proudly presented to you by Oscar the ringworm and carnivorous goats. :DInterestingly enough this book and the events therein reminded me strongly of book #1. What I mean is that there was quite a number of events leading the reader this way and that, throwing us around (not just through time) and making it impossible to breathe or foresee where this was going. In the beginning there is a pregnant Max who is on "light...

    Rating: 4* of fiveOh happy, happy sigh. Series book reading is a special corner of the larger literary marketplace. A serial series-book reader craves the comfort level of familiar faces but requires that story still take place, therefore tribulation and torment and so on be inflicted on our pals.It's a little like being married, or as I recall that exceedingly unnatural institution anyway: Fun is had in the schadenfreude of the moment of maximum...

    Can't wait for the next one!

    King Arthur, stealing swords, a whole load of bad luck, and time travel. What more could you wish for in a jolly good book? This series continues to enchant and charm me and this book was just so much fun. I found myself really getting into the story twists and there were many fabulous character moments which made me smile and even outright laugh (which doesn't happen that often tbh!)Once more we're following Max, but this time she and her team h...

    Another great instalment in the Chronicles, or should I say Tribulations, of St Mary’s. This time we get a quick look at Arthur and even visit Stonehenge. As entertaining as these historical visits are, it is really the characters that time and again win you over, and their interactions with each other. That and Taylor’s writing skill. Yes, she entertains you with humour and thrilling scenes, throwing you relentlessly from one thing to anothe...

    Another good 'un, with moments scary and hysterically funny. Taylor really knows how to build suspense in both types of situation. I'll admit that I had my fingers crossed at one point that she wasn't going to go for a dark resolution....should have known better.Quotable quote:Pathetically hopeful, she said, 'Am I a historian?' 'Well, you're in a pod. You're wearing 13th century clothing stained with someone else's blood. You stink of beer and ho...

    Fun antics per usual at St. Mary's. A good series as a palate cleanser between books with intense action or intricately plotted books. Taylor has a gift for funny reparte between characters.

    This will be an entire review from books 1-7, excluding the Novellas. Overview: This was an enjoyable series and I highly recommend if for people that like historical fiction. While the series was interesting and refreshing, it had some faults that made me rate it a three stars out of five stars. I do have more "negative" things to say about the book, but that shouldn't deter anyone from reading them. Good: Jodi Taylor did a splendid job capturin...

    Another excellent instalment in the series. A lot of twist and turns in the book - taking us to many historical events. OK, the start of the book was a little shaky - but how we got there was good.The ending is a roller coster - and there is a certain someone i want to see very bad things happen to.The downside is i now have to wait like everyone else for the next book in the series. Good news for Jodi Taylor is that i will be pre-ordering it in ...
