I just finished a series of books that, although aren't strictly Fantasy, drew me in and held me until the very end. I just couldn't stop reading them
and after the first one, I kept buying the next...and the next...and the next. I cared about the characters, their loves and loses and they were full
of wit and dry humor. They're called "The Chronicles of St Mary's" and I just can't say enough about them.
A Historian gets a job at St Mary's, a place with impeccable credentials and a reputation for being more than a bit ...er...odd
"research" history such as battles, signing of documents, etc...and what people don't know is...they have time travel. Now, I know this sounds
Science fiction -y, but the emphasis of the books is not on the time travel, it's on the people, the things they get into, deaths, loves, etc...
They actually go to the times and places they are researching and watch the battles first hand. Really
first hand. More than once they come
back with their own battle scars. They get involved in situations all through the books and you just can't help but love the characters.
Honestly can't say enough good things about this series and as a matter of fact, I'm going to go back and read them all over again.
They are that
