St Mary's is back and nothing is going right for Max. Once again, it's just one damned thing after another. The action jumps from an encounter with a mirror-stealing Isaac Newton to the bloody battlefield at Agincourt. Discover how a simple fact-finding assignment to witness the ancient and murderous cheese- rolling ceremony in Gloucester can result in CBC - concussion by cheese. The long awaited jump to Bronze Age Troy ends in personal catastrophe for Max and just when it seems things couldn't get any worse - it's back to the Cretaceous Period again to confront an old enemy who has nothing to lose. So, make the tea, grab the chocolate biscuits, settle back and discover exactly why the entire history department has painted itself blue ...

Champing at the bit to find out what happens next. Have put in a request for the next books #4 through 10, as well as the anthology of short stories called The Long and the Short of It, that run from before the first novel all the way through to story 8.5. There are currently 4 more shorts that go from there but haven't been published in an anthology. I fully expect that they will, in the fullness of time. I really hope the library will consider completing the series, as I can see from the comments that I'm not the only fan. Fingers crossed!

I love these books. Sometimes sad but also laugh out loud funny. Make sure you read them in order. I'm still waiting for the last book.

I like this series but I have noticed that the author emphasizes the star struck lovers aspect quite a bit. I'm going to be starting the next book soon and hope that this aspect isn't tromped on too hard.

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 I recommend the series of Chronicles of St. Mary's. Be sure to start with the first book -- "Just One Damned Thing After Another"

After reading the 1st book I bought the first 2 books in the series then found 5 & 6 and her ebook short stories. I discovered you don't want to read these books out of order, really you don't. This series is so fantastic... I'm beginning to suspect Jodi is an escaped Historian living well in the UK turning her work experience into books.
