Publisher's Summary

The 12th book in the best-selling Chronicles of St Mary's series. If you love Jasper Fforde, Ben Aaronovitch or Doctor Who, you won't be able to resist Jodi Taylor.

'It's time, Max.'

And so, a whole new chapter opens up.

It's long been known that if a thing can go wrong, it will. With knobs on, usually. Disasters start to pile up. A new colleague with no respect for the past and a great deal to prove. Historians lost in time. And - worst of all - Rosie Lee on her very first jump. Then there's the small matter of Max's dishonourable discharge.

From Tudor England to the Tower of Babel - it's all going horribly wrong.

Jobless and homeless, Max receives an offer she can't refuse. Another time, another place. A refuge, perhaps.

She's got that wrong, too.

Another winner!

Honestly surprised to see negative reviews, and one sounded like perhaps they had not listened to the whole book.
Here's my review... I tried to make it last, but it was just too good, and too interesting, to put down!

I love that this book includes many of my favorite characters/character relationships, great history, drama and suspense, but also introduces some new characters, and what sounds like some lead ins to some new story lines....which is always good because I want the Chronicles of St Mary's series to go on forever! :-).

As with all of the books in the series, I was completely engaged with the story line with all of it's twists and turns, and the wonderful characters, each with their distinct personalities. Zara Ramm is, as always, an incredibly talented narrator.

My least favorite book

I like this series because of the relationships between all the characters, this book is missing that. It just seemed to gloss over a big death and a wedding. Performance was great.

Jodi Taylor continues to bring it in every book of the series. A well-loved author with an ever accumulating, well-loved number of tales under her belt.

Fun romp

Another great installment to the Chronicles of St. Mary's by Jodi Taylor. Jodi Taylor brings back Maxwell and the gang for another romp through history. Some surprises and some changes, so stay on your toes. My one complaint, they are over too fast. Zara Ramm does another outstanding job in the narration. I am going to be very sad when this series comes to an end. Please keep writing Ms Taylor.

Jodi does it again!

There's trouble at St. Mary's. (When isn't there!) So many twists and tears, old friends and new characters. Fasten your seatbelt and let the perfect narration of Zara Ramm take you for a bumpy ride.

Another excellent entry in the St Mary's series

In the last book I was concerned that it seemed like the author was wrapping things up and I was concerned that she might be wanting to move on to new stories after ending this one. Nope. I was way off base. She is only getting warmed up.

Every book in this series has me wondering what torturous perils the author can put our hero, Max through. This volume was no exception. Amazingly detailed subplots regarding an Elizabethan mysterious death, to intrigue and danger at the tower of babel. Old friends come and go throughout the story, although some are changed forever. I can't wait to see what comes next.

Highest recommendations. I strongly suggest reading the whole series from the start to get the full effect and enjoyment from the book.

Utter rubbish!

Sloppy, inconsistent, and does a major disservice to the characters we've grown to love.

Interesting new direction; wait out the repetition/incongruities

I’m a huge fan of St. Mary’s, and this book took things in an interesting new direction... including -finally! - not constantly dwelling on Clive Ronin. But it took its sweet time getting to the new stuff. Lots of repeated conversations and statements that were clearly communicated the first go-round; it got dull listening to Max berate the same people over and over again. There were also incongruent and inconsistent statements about Leon, which I found jarring. Overall, still a decent ride; I hope the next one lives up to previous standards.

Absolutely B B * brilliant!

How does Jodi Taylor just keep on writing better books after better books? A fairly major heart stopping moment at the beginning just set the premise for a 'bloody bollocking' (*BB) brilliant story! Now to wait another year for the next one! Lucky the Time Police series is just as staggeringly brilliant!

Good but

Having enjoyed the entire series of the chronicles of St Marys was looking forward to this very much and whilst it didn't exactly disappoint it never really engaged either perhaps the predictability of Max goes off gets in a scrape blunders about and it all turns out ok in the end Hopefully and I can see the opportunity this is an opening in the next chapter of her adventures ? Will wait and see

Not good news

One of the things I’ve always loved about Jodi Taylor’s books, and still do, is the humour and flashes of lightheartedness. This book had very little of either and is quite dark. Also given the promise of more of the same, I don’t think I’ll be continuing to follow the St Mary’s gang any further. I thank Ms Taylor for the hours of pleasurable reading though and would recommend anyone not having done so to start the journey from the beginning
