Jodi Taylor is, and always has been, a history nut. Her Chronicles of St. Mary's, a wild mix of history, adventure, comedy, romance, tragedy, and anything else the author could think of, began as a self-published book called Just One Damned Thing After Another. It's now a bestselling, wildly addictive series.
Praise for Jodi Taylor and The Chronicles of St. Mary's Series "A carnival ride through laughter and tears with a bit of time travel thrown in for spice . . . readers will be impatient for later installments." --Publishers Weekly, starred review "Taylor does a great job of setting up an appealing cast of characters in this new series opener, most especially the intrepid Max. There is plenty of humor, lots of action, and even a touch of romance." --Library Journal "Taylor has written a madcap and very funny hodgepodge of a novel whose pacing and humor is reminiscent of a Simon Pegg-Edgar Wright film." --Booklist "Danger, romance, history, financial and academic politics, hidden agendas, dangerous assignments, characters you care about, and the feeling that more is going on than you're actually reading about. I can hardly wait for book two. Just One Damned Thing After Another is a true page-turner." --SFRevu "Just One Damned Thing After Another is a novel that wastes no time getting to the good stuff . . . if character-driven stories are your cup of tea, then you'll find plenty to like. Max is hilarious, and I love her spirited and crafty nature." --The Bibliosanctum "What a mess. A glorious, glorious mess. Let no one ever say that Just One Damned Thing After Another is a book that fails to live up to its title . . . . These books are so perfectly bingeable." --B&N Sci-fi Blog "Max is a thoroughly hilarious and confident narrator and the sense of real danger, interspersed with copious amounts of tea, pervades the story. This is the kind of book that you walk away from believing in time travel." --Manhattan Book Review "If you're a fan of time travel, or if you're a fan of madcap British comedies, or better yet if you're a fan of both, then you'll want to check out The Chronicles of St. Mary's." --Adventures Fantastic "The book can't be put down, and I loved every minute. Seven books in the series have been published in Great Britain and this first book is now being published in the U.S. I look forward to reading them all." --YA Lit Ramblings "The writing was witty and fun, and kept making me smile page after page. . . . Max is a brilliant character, the kind of character you root for, faults and all." --All Things Urban Fantasy "Jodi Taylor doesn't do things the conventional way." --Catherine Scott, Yorkshire Post
