Tunnels Tunnels
Roderick Gordon    Brian Williams   
Dès les premières pages, j'étais un peu réticente... Autant dire que je me suis carrément demandé si je devais arrêter de lire ou bien continuer encore un peu. J'ai opté pour la deuxième option et, une fois que l'histoire s'est mise en place j'ai totalement accroché ! Je me suis plongée dans l'histoire et j'ai dévoré le livre en peu de temps ! Will est très attachant et l'histoire et très originale ! J'attends la suite avec hâte même si j'espère que le début sera moins long !

Les Chroniques de St Mary, Tome 4 : A trail through time Les Chroniques de St Mary, Tome 4 : A trail through time
Jodi Taylor   
Max and Leon are safe at last. Or so they think.

Snatched from her own world and dumped into a new one, Max is soon running for her life. Again.

From a 17th century Frost Fair to Ancient Egypt; from Pompeii to 8th century Scandinavia; Max and Leon are pursued up and down the timeline, playing a dangerous game of hide-and-seek, until finally they're forced to take refuge at St Mary's where a new danger awaits them.

Max's happily ever after is going to have to wait a while...
Les Chroniques de St Mary, Tome 9 : An argumentation of hisotrians Les Chroniques de St Mary, Tome 9 : An argumentation of hisotrians
Jodi Taylor   
January 1536 – the day of Henry VIII’s infamous jousting accident. Historians from St Mary’s are there in force, recording and documenting. And, arguing -obviously.

A chance meeting between Max and the Time Police leads to a plan of action. And, it’s one that will have very serious consequences – especially for Max. Her private life is already more than a little rocky. But with Leon recovering and Matthew safe in the future there will never be a better opportunity to bring down Clive Ronan, once and for all.

From Tudor England to the burning city of Persepolis - and from a medieval siege to a very nasty case of 19th century incarceration - Max is determined that this time, he will not escape.
Les Chroniques de St Mary, Tome 7.2 : My name is Markham Les Chroniques de St Mary, Tome 7.2 : My name is Markham
Jodi Taylor   
Like a smaller and much scruffier Greta Garbo – finally – Markham speaks!

It’s Christmas and time for the first (and almost certainly last) St Mary’s Annual Children’s Christmas Party – attendance compulsory, by order of Dr Bairstow. Discovered practising his illegal reindeer dance and poo-dropping routine, our hero, along with fellow disaster-magnets Peterson and Maxwell, is despatched to Anglo-Saxon England to discover the truth about Alfred and the cakes.

In his own words, our hero reveals Major Guthrie’s six-point guide to a successful assignment and the Security Section’s true opinion of the History Department. And of historians in general. And of one historian in particular.

And, just to be clear, it is time travel, for God’s sake. Forget all that pretentious ‘investigating major historical events in contemporary time’ rubbish.

This is history without the capital ‘H’. Because this is the way the Security Section rolls!
Les Chroniques de St Mary, Tome 5.1 : Christmas present Les Chroniques de St Mary, Tome 5.1 : Christmas present
Jodi Taylor   
It's Christmas Eve at St Mary's

And all through the house

Nothing is stirring...

Except for Max, Peterson and Markham, sneaking out at midnight for an assignment that is very definitely off the books.

It's ten years ago tonight that Senior Historians Bashford and Grey went missing in 12th century Jerusalem. So how did they end up in AD60 Roman Colchester?

Max has a theory. Peterson has a plan. Markham has bacon sandwiches. Colchester has Boudicca and her bloodthirsty Iceni hordes.

And then there's the giant pig ... the enraged, giant pig...
Les Chroniques de St Mary, Tome 7.1 : The great St Mary's stay out Les Chroniques de St Mary, Tome 7.1 : The great St Mary's stay out
Jodi Taylor   
Astonishingly, Dr Bairstow has declared a holiday. Even more astonishingly - he's paying for it.
Needless to say, there are strings attached. They have to record the 1601 performance of Hamlet, with Shakespeare himself in the role of the Ghost.
It doesn't go well, of course. With Dr Bairstow and Mrs Mack turning a simple visit to a street market into a public brawl, Professor Rapson inadvertently stowing away on a vessel bound for the New World, and Shakespeare himself going up in flames, it would seem that Max, of all people, is the only one actually completing the assignment.
Les Chroniques de St Mary, Tome 5 : No time like the past Les Chroniques de St Mary, Tome 5 : No time like the past
Jodi Taylor   
The St Mary’s Institute of Historical Research has finally recovered from its wounds and it’s business as usual for those rascals in the History Department.

From being trapped in the Great Fire of London to an unfortunately timed comfort break at Thermopylae, which leaves the fate of the western world hanging in the balance, Max must struggle to get History back on track.
But first, they must get through the St Mary’s Fete – which is sure to end badly for everyone.

Only one thing is certain, life at St Mary’s is never dull!
Les Chroniques de St Mary, Tome 7 : Lies, damned lies, and history Les Chroniques de St Mary, Tome 7 : Lies, damned lies, and history
Jodi Taylor   
‘I’ve done some stupid things in my time. I’ve been reckless. I’ve broken a few rules. But never before have I ruined so many lives or left such a trail of destruction behind me.’

Max has never been one for rules. They tend to happen to other people.

But this time she’s gone too far. And everyone at St Mary’s is paying the price.

With the History Department disintegrating around her and grounded until the end of time, how can she ever put things right?

Les Chroniques de St Mary, Tome 6.1 : Ships and stings and wedding rings Les Chroniques de St Mary, Tome 6.1 : Ships and stings and wedding rings
Jodi Taylor   
It’s Christmas at St Mary's and time for Max’s obligatory illegal jump. On this occasion, however, they’re right up against it.

A loaded gun has been left behind in Ancient Egypt and it’s up to them to retrieve it before anyone accidentally blows their own head off, thus affecting the timeline for centuries to come.

And as if that’s not enough, someone (Max) has inadvertently poisoned Mr Markham.

It’s hot, they’re running out of supplies, they can’t find the gun, and it’s all going horribly wrong. Again.

Les Chroniques de St Mary, Tome 6 : What could possibly go wrong ? Les Chroniques de St Mary, Tome 6 : What could possibly go wrong ?
Jodi Taylor   
‘To do what I do – go where I go – see what I see – it’s a wonderful, unique, never-to-be-taken-for-granted privilege.’

With great privilege comes great responsibility, something Max knows only too well, and as newly appointed Chief Training Officer at the St Mary’s Institute of Historical Research, it’s up to her to drum this guiding principle into her five new recruits.
With a training programme that includes Joan of Arc, an illegal mammoth, a duplicitous Father of History, a bombed rat, Stone Age hunters and Dick the Turd, the question everyone is asking themselves is – what could possibly go wrong?
