I liked it. Not sure if I’ll stick with it, since they’re the natural enemies of St Mary’s. Rome and Carthage - and all that. After the whole Ronan betrayal thing, I’m not sure I can let go of the grudge and may have to say farewell to Matthew, the map and Ellis...

Although I thought I knew who the infiltrator was, I could never have anticipated that there were more than one.
While I feel vindicated in the knowledge that I was right, I was also not prepared for the other revelations.
This is a MUST, with more twists and red herrings than I have come across in a while.
When does the next one come out?

The structure remains the same but the people AND situations are unique again. Some colourful characters and interesting customs makes Shadows Landing a great place to live.

I do love the hysterical responses of the Time Police and the calmness of St. Mary’s.
A different type of Christmas experience and another myth/conspiracy theory debunked.

For me, the penny dropped about three chapters before the end. Still, a few revelations right at the end closed all the cases neatly and tidily.
Definitely another must-read.

I didn’t think I could still be surprised by the goings on in Kentucky.
The Bluegrass stories have always been a release I look forward to. The characters have become like family and every story endears them to you.
This one was special though, Father Ben made me cry...

I absolutely loved this there were times when I laughed out loud and just could not stop.
I have to admit, I had my doubts about Alan but did not see the ending coming till very near the end.
Definitely one to add to your library.

I enjoyed the story but I am not sure I can go through a whole series of long lost love. Emma and Julian's love is forbidden and I am sure there are more lies. While I am curious about Annabel and everyone else, I cannot do this star crossed lovers stuff. I'd much rather they were a couple and fought together than this hurting. I guess I don't pine for teenage drama, but rather to see adults working together for a better future, together.
The narration was really great. I'd gladly listen to more of her narrations.

The fears and realities of children, in moments of death, are often so similar but also different from adults.
This interesting view is tearjerking but honest and well narrated.

I have followed Max's adventures from the befit and to revisit it now, as a play was thrilling but also something to get used to. Some of the characters sounded nothing like I imagined and took some getting used to.
A well written adaptation though and definitely worth listening to.
