Publisher's Summary

St Mary’s is back and nothing is going right for Max. Once again, it’s just one damned thing after another. The action jumps from an encounter with a mirror-stealing Isaac Newton to the bloody battlefield at Agincourt. Discover how a simple fact-finding assignment to witness the ancient and murderous cheese-rolling ceremony in Gloucester can result in CBC - concussion by cheese. The long awaited jump to Bronze Age Troy ends in personal catastrophe for Max and just when it seems things couldn’t get any worse - it’s back to the Cretaceous Period again to confront an old enemy who has nothing to lose. So, make the tea, grab the chocolate biscuits, settle back and discover exactly why the entire history department has painted itself blue.


What the Critics Say

"Ramm deftly takes listeners through Taylor's temporal shifts, emphasizing Max's dry wit and sense of the ridiculous.... Ramm's smooth voice pivots to a tone of regret and loss as Max confronts the consequences of dabbling in time. Ramm portrays Max's complex nature in all its flawed humanity." (AudioFile)

Another chaotic, but fun outing

CBC - Concussion By Cheese. It's these little anecdotes that make this such an entertaining series. I'd like to believe that I learn a little bit about history too - even if it is ancient history when nobody actually knows what the real truth is. Still, it always feels quite well informed.

They've been a fun first three books to the series - light-hearted and jovial in tone (even if it's in the middle of the an epic historical battle) and exactly right to cleanse the listening palate after something more gritty.

A cliff-hanger ending, so straight onto book 4.

Narration exactly same as previous books in the series - perfectly reflects Max's attitude.
