Review: “The Very First Damned Thing” (A Chronicles of St. Mary’s Short Story) by Jodi Taylor

very first damned thingIt was very, very cool to not only get a glimpse of the origins St. Mary’s but also a peek into Dr. Bairstow’s head. At this point in the series, seeing his relationships with the people that he intentionally sought to staff St. Mary’s was more interesting than the jump to Waterloo (despite the delightful surprise guests we find there). 

This story also gave us tantalizing details about the near(?) future in which this series exists. It starts hitting a little close to home, in some ways, which just makes me even more determined to keep following this world to learn more.

And to enjoy the madcap adventures of the historians, of course.

Rating: 5 (out of 5) stars. Cross-posted to Amazon and Goodreads.
