I’m a big fan of Jodi Taylor’s St. Mary’s series. I must have read each book twice, just for the pure pleasure of “visiting” the characters who’ve begun to seem like old friends. Real smart ass friends, but guys you’d like to know for real. (Even though we’re not supposed to call it “time travel”, it is just that. The thing that distinguishes it is the historical education you get that leaves you googling the events to learn more).
This book isn’t time travel but it is sci-fi. It’s a wholly different story line than the above St. Mary’s setting. Taylor’s got a way with snappy, funny dialogue that is hard to pull off, but really separates it from serious, geeky sci-fi. It’s a talent that carries over to this second, new, series.
This more recent series, featuring Elizabeth Cage, is looking like another winner for Jodi Taylor. This is about the third (?) book so far and I’m betting it will turn out to have over a dozen books in this series if it’s like her successful St. Mary’s stories.
Elizabeth Cage can see auras unique to individuals and their moods or characters. We can see where this is going, maybe, but maybe not. I pre-ordered this book as I do for anything written by Jodi Taylor.
I hope she gives us as many years of enjoyment with Elizabeth Cage as she did with “Max” in St. Mary’s .
