I will read ANYTHING by Jodi Taylor

I never even read the synapses before buying a Jodi Taylor book, and I’ve never been disappointed. Her characters are likable, smart, and multifaceted. Her ability to tell a good story, top notch! She mixes history, comedy, and amazing plots to create stories I can’t put down! Well done!

Audio book perfection has been achieved!

Dear Never-heard-of- this-series-until- today-reader, This book is amazing, but don't buy it just yet! Go find "Just One Damned Thing After Another" and start from the beginning. To fully experience and appreciate this latest book (and holy cow (bull?) what a revelation this one contained!), you need to experience the prior ten books. Clear your schedule, you will be living in a St. Mary's world for a while and will miss it when you are forced back into reality. Jodi Taylor has created something amazing with this series. Each book has inspired me to read up on the actual historical event/events that are depicted in the stories. I'm pretty sure these books have made me smarter. :) It's really a shame that most people don't discover how interesting history is until later in life. If only Jodi Taylor had written my high school & college history books... Zara Ramm's performance is perfect. Her comedic timing and subtle voice differences for each character should be studied by other audiobook narrators. This series has a lot of characters and she's given each of them a consistent vocal personality, and she does it seamlessly. This is the 11th book in the series and I think it's the best one yet. I was completely taken by surprise at the turn of events (in a satisfying way!) and never saw it coming. I will say no more about this book than that because I would hate to ruin the magic for future readers.

Fantastic!

I'm always sad at the end of the book because I have to wait so long for the next one. Loved the twists in this one. If I ever get to meet Zara Ramm I know I will call her Max! She really makes the story fun!

A delightful and witty series

Not your typical time travel series. Our author is very witty with a lot of very interesting insights. I recommend reading or listening to all of the books with the interspersed short stories in order. Each novel builds upon previous novels and stories but the author gives enough detail So you’re not lost. This is a fun series and I recommend it.

Not my favorite

I have truly loved many of these books and I own them all on audible. And it’s nice to finally be rid of the increasingly improbable arch villain Clive. I think Jodi has done a remarkable job with this series and I am grateful. But to be honest, this book felt too long with too little real plot and too much filler. And the cadence of having endless internal dialogue during an imminent crisis happens so often that I was actually tempted to skip ahead many times. I think the series has run down and I’ll just stick to relistening to the first few books.

Loved it!

I am a fan of Jodi Taylor. Her way of describing things is just elegant and funny at the same time. And the St.Mary's series is absolutely great (although I enjoyed other books as well)! I love the humor and wit and I could definitely work there as a historian (great team! and my attention span is as long as theirs...). Would be an honor and a privilege... And I love the narrator as well - Ms. Zara Ramm does excellent work!

Always a delight

if you haven't read or listened to the Chronicles of St. Mary's, you certainly should. Well written, poignant and sometimes laugh out loud hysterical, this series is a delight.

Simply The Best!

One of the high points of the St. Mary’s series! Jodi’s excellent writing, Zara’s amazing narration there’s not a lot more you could ask for...except for maybe another book! I really enjoyed this one.

Max gets her MoJo back!

Hurrah, finally, finally Max is back to taking charge. This was a delightful romp through all the twists and turns that St. Mary’s has to offer. And what a twist! Bravo, Jodi Taylor! Didn’t see that one coming! Narration is sublime, as ever.
