Wow! If you have not read any of the prior St. Mary's Chronicles, I advise you to begin at the beginning. It is a great ride and you will enjoy every book better if read in sequence. I highly recommend each and every book and short story in this series. If you have never met Max and all her cohorts, you are in for a treat. I'll say nothing that would give away Spoilers, but if your mind hasn't already been turned inside out and upside down with the implications of time travel, it will be by the time you are through. And it is so much fun along the way--great characters, hilarity, sadness, adventure, fear, joy, struggle, success, longing, love, running, scary men in black armor, explosions, jumping around in time, and much more. Jodi Taylor has a great grasp of history and an amazing imagination. Enjoy, read them all!
