Behind the seemingly innocuous facade of St. Marys Institute of Historical Research, a different kind of academic work is taking place. Just dont call it time travelthese historians investigate major historical events in contemporary time. And they arent your harmless eccentrics either; a more accurate description, as they ricochet around history, might be unintentional disaster-magnets.From Tudor England to the burning city of Persepolis, from a medieval St. Marys under siege to Victorian Rushford and a very nasty case of gaol fever, Max is struggling to keep her private life intact. Theres an ambitious programme hindered by giant teapots, plus Mrs. Midgelys objection to dead hamsters in her airing cupboard, and Mr. Markhams stubborn refusal to reveal his exact marital status.And as if thats not enoughthe unfortunately not leprosy-laden Malcolm Halcombe is back. Admittedly, none of this is the most secure platform from which to launch an initiative to bring down the renegade Clive Ronan, but heywhats the worst that could happen?...

An Argumentation of Historians (The Chronicles of St Mary's #9) Reviews
I laughed. I cried. I gasped.
As always, I can rely on St Mary’s to spin a good yarn and deliver an excellent story. This time we find Max, on her own and without any chance of rescue, in desperate need of help. I don’t want to expand on the plot too much, as I think this is best enjoyed ‘blind’, but trust me - it’s as good as ever. The new characters, especially William, are thoughtfully developed to the point where I really grew quite attached to for all of them in such a short space of time. ...more
These books are always enjoyable but I didn’t like the amount of time Max spent removed from St Mary’s. I missed the wider cast of characters.
I’m so torn. There are things about this series that I love and others that tend to bug me. This book did have one of the best slap me in the face reveals at the end though so props to Jodi Taylor for that.
I love the history. Since I’m completely rubbish at historical stuff it is all new and interesting to me. Even when I do know a little about the historical event it is made better because it is shown with a new twist to it. That is really what makes the books really fun.

You know you really love a series when you buy the 9th one the very day it comes out and keep reading till it's done. Time travel, historical accuracy, wacky British humor, mayhem, and a certain amount of saucy romance--these are a few of my favorite things and they're all present in the Chronicles of St. Mary's. Now, when will we get #10????
I am here for it and I am ready.
Buddy read with the honorary Historians (we can't be the real thing we have too much brains and sense of self preservation) of the Wednesday UF Group.
Jodi Taylor gutted us in the previous instalment so I expected a tamer as far as emotions go 9th book. Boy, was I wrong! Sure it wasn't as brutal as And the Rest is History but it had its own brand of emotional impact.
Two things really screwed with my head and my poor abused feelings. As we well know Max's plans always end in dis ...more
It's been a while since I've been at St. Mary's. True, I've kept up with the short stories as they are usually sweet in a way, but feel no guilt over having skipped #8. Maybe some day I'll feel strong enough to read it. Why I haven't so far? Well, I can get quite emotional about characters and the disaster magnets that are the historians, techies, R&D and security staff here are very close to my heart. The series has always been dramatic and an emotional rollercoaster but things happen in bo ...more
Well I was frustrated by the ending but I know we’ll find out more in the next book. Hope it comes out soon. Maxwell and Leon are recovering from the pod explosion that happened in book 8 but Clive Ronan is still lose and causing trouble. Where is he? I listened to the book in audible and Zara Ramm is Max. She is the saving grace from some of the stuff that happens in this book. I mean getting stuck in 15th Century St. Mlary’s For a year only to return to find out you’ve been gone only a week. A ...more
