St Mary's is back and is facing a battle to survive in this, the fourth installment of the Chronicles.
Max and Leon are re-united and looking forward to a peaceful lifetime together. But, sadly, they don't even make it to lunchtime.The action races from 17th century London to Ancient Egypt and from Pompeii to 14th century Southwark as they're pursued up and down the timeline, playing a perilous game of hide and seek until they're finally forced to take refuge at St Mary's - where new dangers await them.
As usual, there are plenty of moments of humour, but the final, desperate, Battle of St Mary's is in grim earnest. Overwhelmed and outnumbered and with the building crashing down around them, how can St Mary's possibly survive? So, make sure the tea's good and strong.

Anther Adventure with the Timetraveling Historians
Yes, yes, and yes. I love this series. Get book 1 and start the mad adventure of Max, Peterson, Leon and the other crazy historians at St. Mary's. You have to read it to know. Every story is a different adventure. The pod is their mode of transport like Dr. Who uses a phone booth.
Dr. Who comes to mind with the spinning phone booth winding up somewhere else. At least the pods are programmed for their destination.
Not a particular one but I do like the History Muse who shows up to tell Max to get on with her next special tour.
And the world goes white....just before you land somewhere else.
These books are exceptionally good. They are light with minimal sex scenes for those who prefer fantasy, and you don't really miss them. Max and Leon do 'get together' but you don't have to suffer through it with them. These are just good fun books for those who can suspend reality and enjoy fantasy.
The best book yet!
While I loved all the books so far in the series, this is by far the best one to date! This has the history, action, and St. Marys' at its unique and courageous finest. Historians are the BEST "action warriors!" This book has a well rounded set of; awkward romance, action, historians in action, civilians saving the day, bravery, and cheeky humor as always with the St. Marys' crew!
The mixture of action, history, and a more indepth view of the staff and their courageous nature under "fire" from outside forces. Plus I like that it has a "real enemy" also that you believed could overcome the St. Marys' crew at any time....the suspense and inquinuity of St. Marys' was the best.
I think she does a good job, but I think the book itself also would stand on its own. The really nice part is that she doesn't get in the way of the words...she lets them speak on their own. I do think she could add some inflection on occasion to make the funnier items more prevalent..but she does a great job overall.
The fight between the St. Marys' teams and the "enemy" was one I really loved...the courage, the ingenuity, the loyalty, and moxie....fantastic combo!!
This is definitely a GREAT READ, and HIGHLY recommend it. I let a friend listen while we were on a car ride and now she's hooked...she loved the history and romance, I loved the action, humor, and interpersonal relationships within the St. Marys' team.
