Opinion

From Library Staff

St. Mary's is an historical research institute. Conventional research is great, but the best "primary sources" are found by time travel.

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 read the series of Chronicles of St. Mary's. The series and the characters "grow" on you, the action gets ridiculous at times but often is laugh out loud funny or could bring tears to your eyes.

It started off well; Sort of a 'To Say Nothing of the Dog' meets 'The Eyre Affair' feel to it, with very similar themes running throughout. Then it got pretty dark and didn't really lighten up again. Not a huge fan of some of the decision making in this, but I'll give the next one a chance.

What a wonderful series. I picked it up because the title made me think of my life and giggle. It has it all down to earth characters, history, present future. Just cannot recommend this whole series enough from first to the third one I just read. May Jodi Taylor continue them for our delight

What an amazing discovery! The last time I read a book then instantly went on search mode to buy the entire series was Hogswatch by Terry Pratchett, which at that time he had 31 books (still miss that great man and author). We are in luck! Jodi only has 7 books so far, make sure to locate her ebook short stories (why doesn't the library carry short stories?).

I'm not usually a fantasy fan, but I loved these books. All of them. Great stories, wonderfully told.
