About the Author
Jodi Taylor is the internationally bestselling author of the Chronicles of St Mary's series, the story of a bunch of disaster prone individuals who investigate major historical events in contemporary time. Do NOT call it time travel! She is also the author of the Time Police series - a St Mary's spinoff and gateway into the world of an all-powerful, international organisation who are NOTHING like St Mary's. Except, when they are.
Alongside these, Jodi is known for her gripping supernatural thrillers featuring Elizabeth Cage together with the enchanting Frogmorton Farm series - a fairy story for adults.
Born in Bristol and now living in Gloucester (facts both cities vigorously deny), she spent many years with her head somewhere else, much to the dismay of family, teachers and employers, before finally deciding to put all that daydreaming to good use and write a novel. Nearly twenty books later, she still has no idea what she wants to do when she grows up.

But it terrifies me. I had nightmares. Yes, the characters are great, as is the writing. But the plots.....
St Mary’s has some dark moments. No, a lot of dark moments. But this surpasses that.
Horror is not for me and this is almost pure horror.

What happens next is a charming, scary, thrilling mixture of childhood fairytales come to life, mysterious otherworld creatures, daring rescues, creepy rituals and a village which reminded me very much of a super scary children's TV series I watched when I was a child. All these threads are effortlessly woven together with Jodi Taylor's customary humour, sarcasm and gentle romance. Each and every one of her characters is fully realised and finely nuanced. I loved all of them, old and new, good and bad.
Can't wait for the next one.
The second however, is the most bizarre story I think I've ever read. It hops all over the place, bringing us into contact with characters and storylines that go nowhere but utilise Celtic, Norse and ancient Greek mythology. There was no coherence, no storyline just disparate characters in conflict with one another and Elizabeth Cage constantly feeling tired or being confused about who she is or where she is. At one point she embarks on a 3 mile walk (round trip) starting out in the early morning and planning to have a picnic. After meeting a troll and a hippy guy she staggers home exhausted late in the day and goes to bed!!
I find the whole thing annoying, pointless and totally frustrating. Before the halfway mark I gave up and left the book to fester in a corner somewhere. If I had a fire I'd probably use it for kindling.
Can she rebuild her quiet life? But wait! There are two huge surprises for the reader. st Mary’s isn’t the only place protected by immortal beings. (If you haven’t read Jodi Taylor’s St Mary’s books, then please enliven your library with the wonderful world of History research.) the immortal beings in this book are beautiful, sad and look, I imagine, like anime heroes.
There’s a genius at work. Ms Taylor’s plots are quite stunning. Twists and turns and dead stop shocks are Jodi Taylor’s strengths. I believe that she is the most entertaining and original writer of this decade.
There’s room for another book. I hope we do get to enjoy another development in the Cage/Jones romance.
