Loved it...loved the entire series. Such a great combination of history, humor and fantasy. Max is a believable main character. I love how Jodi mixes real world historical events with the misadventures of the St Mary's teams. I feel…

I wish this was an audiobook

This book is something I didn't realize was missing in my life. The historians of St. Mary's are not time travelers, thank you very much. They are historians who study historical events in contemporary time. They observe everything from…

3.75 stars I started this book with equal parts excitement and trepidation. As an Episcopalian, the thought of a mystery with a Episcopal priest as one-half of the duo was right up my alley. However, I also strongly dislike mysteries…

I am usually a little suspicious of time travel stories. Growing up, I devoured Doctor Who and Back to the Future, and this has given me an (overblown and very annoying to everyone I am watching TV with) sense of time travel tropes. If the…

Action packed! Interesting concepts of altering history or not, by way of time travel.

I found a new author to love. Jodi Taylor combines history, time travel, romance, and humor brilliantly! Highly recommended for a light, enjoyable read.

A delightfully entertaining science fiction tale for adult readers, it reminds me of the juvenile s-f I read during my teenage years now updated in content and quality of writing for a more mature experienced audience. Author Jodi Taylor…

I have now read this book twice, and it was just as good the second time around! A lot of fun with many adventures. The passage of time (presently) passes quickly, and can boggle the mind as suddenly 5 years has passed. While it is a time…

Very entertaining British time-travel story, first in a series, with a mixture of humor, tragedy, violence, and romance. Madeleine Maxwell (“Max”) is a young PhD historian who is offered the chance of a lifetime – to be part of a secret…

Possibly one of the best. Just believe me and read it!

WOW what fun! and quite aptly named - our amazing protagonist encounters so many dire situations, it's as though this were several books mashed together. The premise - investigating historical events in contemporary context, and battling…

https://jamesdavisnicoll.com/review/tick says "This was a lot more upbeat than I expected from “time travellers discover the hard way how many things will kill humans.” In fact, it was hilariously funny. Fast moving too. [Editor’s note: I…

Michael Crichton meets Dr. Who meets The Spellman Files. I can hardly wait to read the next one.

If you enjoy imaginative stories that are fun, fast paced, full of fascinating characters, based (not sure how accurately) on history as well as a possible future, then read the series of Chronicles of St. Mary's. The series and the…

It started off well; Sort of a 'To Say Nothing of the Dog' meets 'The Eyre Affair' feel to it, with very similar themes running throughout. Then it got pretty dark and didn't really lighten up again. Not a huge fan of some of the decision…

What a wonderful series. I picked it up because the title made me think of my life and giggle. It has it all down to earth characters, history, present future. Just cannot recommend this whole series enough from first to the third one I…

What an amazing discovery! The last time I read a book then instantly went on search mode to buy the entire series was Hogswatch by Terry Pratchett, which at that time he had 31 books (still miss that great man and author). We are in luck!…

I'm not usually a fantasy fan, but I loved these books. All of them. Great stories, wonderfully told.
