Book Three in The Chronicles of St Mary’s series by Jodi Taylor
At St Mary s Institute of Historical Research, the historians don t just study the past, they revisit it. Behind the strait-laced façade of a conventional academic institution, the secret of time travel is being used for ground-breaking and daring historical research, taking the historians on a rollercoaster ride through history. Meanwhile, within St Mary s itself, there are power struggles and intrigues worthy of a book in themselves. Follow the disaster magnet historians from an encounter with a mirror stealing Isaac Newton to the fabled city of Troy, and from the ancient, murderous cheese-rolling ceremony in Gloucester (which, incidentally, results in CBC concussion by cheese) to the bloody battlefield at Agincourt. It s all happening for Max, so make the tea, grab the chocolate biscuits and discover exactly why the History Department has painted itself blue.
