Nice and cute short story with our intrepid fools, but at least this time they're going off-books on a time-jaunt for a *good* reason.

Here piggy, piggy, piggy! :)

Definitely grin-worthy. ( )

Kleio, the Muse of History, sets in motion another St Mary's adventure by taking Max to one event ten years in the past and one event in the immediate future, which is a result of the former. Unsurprisingly, Max decides to act. Taking Peterson and Markham with her on a trip that's very much off the books, she travels to Colchester in AD60, immediately before Boudicca decides to raze the town to the ground. The usual St Mary's mayhem ensues.

I'm reading the series in sequence, and I got the impression that the events described in this short story will have a bearing on subsequent novels. Jodi Taylor's decision to focus not only on the relationship between Maxwell and Leon, but also on other characters at St Mary's, pays dividends, and I see each story as the opportunity to revisit old friends. I'm already looking forward to the next title in the series. ( )

While I've enjoyed all short stories up to this one, they were nice additions but in order to follow the story of the main series, they weren't necessary. Now however, with Christmas Present (another Christmas short story) I would say this is the case, as the events from this short story have certain important consequences in the next books.

I did wonder when I was reading why they didn't do this earlier, but this in no way spoiled the fun. Everything is nicely St Mary's as always. ( )

Its Christmas and time for their usual caper for their celebration. Let's rescue our lost historians, from Ronan, before they get run over by Queen Boadicea and her hoards. Nothing to it? Right! ( )

The Chronicles of St. Mary's series is a madcap time traveling adventure that I simply cannot resist. I also enjoy the short stories that Jodi Taylor releases in between the books. Typically, they are complete side trips from the storylines in the books but this one is an exception. I had heard that this one really should be read before book 5 because events of this one explain the presence of a character in that book.

I was going to listen to it anyway but if you tend to skip the short stories connected to series don't do that with this one.

The audio edition narrated by Zara Ramm is delightful. I think she manages to capture Max's sarcasm quite well in her narration.

A quick off the books trip to try to accomplish something good turns into the typical disasterfest that most St. Mary's missions become.

Just read the series. It's a blast. ( )
