Another enjoyable entry with Max and the St. Mary‘s crew. I thought the medieval life from Max‘s viewpoint interesting and amusing (since it wasn‘t me). As well as the development and evolution of Max and Leon‘s marriage. I wish there was more about matthew. And, I do think the Clive Ronan storyline has run its course. I hope it get wrapped up in the next book or 2.
All the fiction reads last month were the next book in one of the myriad of series I'm reading, with The Natural History of Dragons being the start of a new one. An Argumentation of Historians was my favorite but that entire set of books is high on my faves list. The MC from it has my dream job which doesn't exist but maybe in an alt-universe it's something I could've been. That's 133 books so far for the year.
There are no words to describe how much I love this series! Time-travel, history, irreverent humor, wonderfully flawed characters, adventure, love, heartbreak, life and death situations, etc., etc., etc. If you like quirk, this is for you. I keep telling people that this book contains my dream job...now if someone would just go about making time-travel a regular thing I'd be more than happy to sign up.
“Oh and for God‘s sake make the book a bit more cheerful this time,‘ was the supplementary command, relayed by a sweating minion. ‘Your last effort traumatized so many readers we had to set up a counseling group.‘” NO KIDDING!!!!! Jodi Taylor is not for the faint of heart.
I got totally sucked into this one which is the 9th of the series. Most of the story centers around Max and her plans and historical activities in a couple different places & times.
A return to form. This Episode of the St Mary‘s Chronicles sees a return of st Mary‘s nemesis? And visits to ancient Persepolis, Henry VIII court and fourteenth century England. There was some great cast performances but this was very much the Max show and I enjoyed seeing more of her. It‘s not high literature but it is a lot of fun !
I know I wasn‘t supposed to buy any new books until I had read another two rom the already purchased. I do find it hard to turn down a new St Mary‘s Chronicle though so ... whoops ! 😉
It's book 9 in the series, so if you're still on the fence about reading it...DO IT! As always, the St Mary's Disaster Magnets go full throttle into everything they do. Max and her Leon are, well, even more themselves than ever. Read the series in order, though, including the short stuff.
