Description

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.

The best book yet!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

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!

What did you like best about this story?

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.

What does Zara Ramm bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

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.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

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!!

Any additional comments?

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.

Purely delightful

I have fallen in love with the Chronicles of St. Mary's and I am 100% positive that Zara Ramm is half the reason. It is deeply British humor that shines with her pitch-perfect rendition of the subtle (and overt) humor in this series. The stories are fun, funny, action-packed, creative and wholly enjoyable.
Although I loved this book (#4), it was, in fact, my least favorite because of [[[[SMALL SPOILER]]]] the fact that this other dimension is just enough "off" that you're not sure where "old friends" stand and who our main character really is,[[[[END SPOILER]]]] Having said that, however, I still loved the book and the performance. Definite cliff-hanger for book #5.

Anther Adventure with the Timetraveling Historians

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

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.

What other book might you compare A Trail Through Time to and why?

Dr. Who comes to mind with the spinning phone booth winding up somewhere else. At least the pods are programmed for their destination.

Which scene was your favorite?

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.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

And the world goes white....just before you land somewhere else.

Any additional comments?

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.

Love love love!

This series of books is a little bit campy but I don't care at all. I love them!! The descriptions of the different historical periods, settings, and costumes are stunning. The narrator is really great. She brings amazing life to each voice and they all seem to be different.

This story renews with each book!

I keep thinking there can be no more to tell, but even though the main characters have no peace in their relationship, they keep going like the energizer bunny- more lives than you can imagine!

Silly, Lovely

These are such odd books and a bit disjointed, just by time stream. But they are so much fun and so tongue in cheek. They're just a delight and are even more so as the series goes on. Enjoy.

What Could Possibly Go Wrong?

Any additional comments?

...well, generally, everything goes wrong for Max and her crew. But, somehow, they always seem to make the best of it.

They're always, always "Perfectly fine" whether they are or not. Most times, they're not.

I've listened to the first four installments now, and Zara Ramm does an amazing job of capturing all the characters'..well, character.

Most of the books gave me the occasional chuckle, and smile, much to the wary-eyed looks of bystanders. But, on more than one occasion in this book I literally laughed loudly. Once, to absolute tears. That, dear readers, is what I call entertainment.

Go, buy all of these, listen in order, and try not to laugh your head off at times.

What could possibly go wrong?
