  • This series has lost its heart and joie de vivre

    Full disclosure, having read and loved the first eight books in this series I gave up part-way through the ninth book as I felt the ongoing Clive Ronin story was a bit rinse-and-repeat and Max was falling into the TSTL heroine character. But I loved the first book in the new Time Police series so when I saw this ARC available on NetGalley I thought I'd request it and try to get back into a world that I had loved. Sadly, I didn't regain the love. What I loved about the early books was the humour and the multiple ventures into history. In this book, even though there are some interesting forays into history my overwhelming feeling was that there was a lot of time spent at St Mary's navel-gazing and that the characters had lost the 'heart' that made the first books so joyous. Instead I felt like there is a growing checklist of things that Jodi Taylor feels she needs to put in every book and as a consequence it's a bit same-same eg the fights with Rosie Lee, the disastrous R&D experiments etc. (view spoiler) Overall, for me, the time travel (and yes I know they don't call it that), which I still enjoyed, didn't make up for the overwhelming feeling of deja-vu. I struggled to start this and that feeling never really went away. I read a review which said the last 30 pages made the book for them, sorry I can't even say that, in fact they raised more questions than anything else. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.

    Thanks for your feedback!
