Jodi Taylor Ì 8 Read & DownloadNjoyable and well written Time travel Alternative History treat for the historically inclined And the characters are very very likable You guys have to check it out Now I wish you all Happy Reading and many wonderful books to come What to say By this point in the series you must enjoy the mad shenanigans uick wit repartee the way everything seems better after a cuppa and just plain FUN that these books are I did This series has really grown on me which is sorta amazing since at book 3 I was totally ready to give up on the entire thing Not only have the plot lines gotten significantly better but the author has figured out how to cause drama in the story without making the love interest characters have some detrimental communication driven catastrophe befall themThe best part of this story for me has always been the moments in time that the characters go back to and seeing a historic event in a new light The most significant thus far is the trip back to the time of Arthur and his nights For one I never realized the Author Excalibur and the Nights of the Round table was based on a real figure from history this is one of those times I feel like a stupid American in my utter lack of historical Talking to Dragons knowledge past the American Revolution Seeing a possible way that he could travel in and save the day for various communities was great and I was possibly the funniest solution to fighting in a battle that the St Mary s men have ever come up withThis series still suffers from some really choppy seuencing sometimes and I m a linear thinker so at times it is difficult for me to figure out the flow of the story when sometimes we are present day and other times we are in the past the past past and the freaking super far pastMax and Leon really are getting this whole marriage thing down and bravo to Leon for supporting a pregnant Max and accepting her traipsing through time with their unborn son Younow her really wants to lock her up in a room at St Mary s and make sure she is safe and sound forever But it seems that he has found a way to
with Max his marriage and St Mary s think they will be okay As Chief Technical Officer I am angrier than I can possibly say That you could do such a thing beggars belief I unfolded my arms and prepared to disembowel him He continued As your husband I am mildly exasperated at your inability to stay out of trouble At this particular moment I am this unit s CTO Later tonight I will be your husband All right Wow to some of the stuff that happened in this book though I mean the stuff with Roland near the end was really heart stopping and I almost cheated and looked at the blurbDEAL WITH MAX HIS MARRIAGE AND ST MARY S
for the next book just to get a clue as tothe next book just to get a clue as to much trouble Max and babe were really inReally it has been some fantastic moments in time and I m loving the direction the series has taken What A total guilty pleasure that doesn t have much to do with romance vampires or werewolves One that reads so easy and so effortlessly and so addictively you might want to classify this as a class A substanceAnd OMG we re ALL able to abuse this shitYeah we are Just for the price of a book or a whole damn series Including short stories We can GET OUR FIXWhat s even better Oh yeah it s SF time travel and SO MUCH HISTORY for all us history buffs Total history pornOh and of course we ve still got our favorite characters just jumping blindly Nd is being used for ground breaking and daring historical research The series takes the reader on a rollercoaster ride through history from the destruction of Pompeii to the trenches of the First World War; from the Great Nto the past where they re able to get into so much damn trouble just because history isn t safe I mean is any time safe Of course not but we have to sigh and reconcile ourselves to the fact that Historians are idiotsSeriously IdiotsFortunately it s hard to stay angry at them even when they jump into several English wars get into serious trouble with Arthur become a pawn in Dr Bairstow s games even having Max think her last jump before maternity leave would be an easy Stonehenge reveal but no Of course no Any fan of this series is going to be sitting on the edge of his or her seat and wondering what dire andor absolutely horrible event is going to happen next and while I might be a pussycat in real life and wish to tell you what horrors await you in order to steel yourself to the tragedy well I won t I m mean on occasion Or often Who nowsBut this is where the tears start falling or do they This author is really really mean And AWESOME This is some great storytelling with really dry humor and great history and great characters and really mean and fast plots Why aren t people reading this It s totally entertaining as hell Rating 4 of fiveOh happy happy sigh Series book reading is a special corner of the larger literary marketplace A serial series book reader craves the comfort level of familiar faces but reuires that story still take place therefore tribulation and torment and so on be inflicted on our palsIt s a little like being married or as I recall that exceedingly unnatural institution anyway Fun is had in the schadenfreude of the moment of maximum chaos confusion and disorder before a new but very similar order emerges to give the world a spurious appearance of continuityI "Ve Had Pitchers Of This "had

you re already familiar with the rather formulaic way the plotre already familiar with the rather formulaic way the plot jump disaster in the past disaster in the present caused either by what the historians did during the jump or King Arthur stealing swords a whole load of bad luck and time travel What could you wish for in a jolly good book This series continues to enchant and charm me and this book was just so much fun I found myself really getting into the story twists and there were many fabulous character moments which made me smile and even outright laugh which doesn t happen that often tbhOnce we re following Max but this time she and her team have just gone too far and the adventure that starts out so well uickly becomes a nightmare that means they may all lose their jobs max and her team are Historians they travel through time documenting and recording history to find out the truth behind the legends What I adore about these is the pure light hearted fun the characters have and the fact that even in the worst of situations there is ALWAYS time for a cup of tea These books delight me and make me smile and for me that is the sign of a very good read 4s Highly recommend the whole series to date and I am eagerly anticipating the next book to be released.
