Hard Time by Jodi Taylor
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book has been on my Audible Wishlist for longer than I realized. My bad. I have enjoyed all of the many, many Jodi Taylor books in my library and I seem to be savoring them under the “One Of These Days” banner rather than the “Oh My What A Treat” banner they deserve.
The Weird Team is almost at the end of their training period and has made a name for themselves within the Time Police. Unfortunately, it isn’t one that many would aspire to. No real surprise there.
A semi-chance encounter with an old acquaintance of Luke’s starts them on a path that uncovers secrets, lies, truths, and a lot of evolution not only of individuals but of organizations.
With a touch of St. Mary’s thrown in for good measure. LOL!
I can not state how much I appreciate Ms. Taylor’s way with words and her knack for character and situation. I thought Gabaldon (Outlander) was a Master Wordsmith, but it turns out she is one of a very, very few. Both are astounding in the way they build worlds. It is a joy to behold!
I found myself thinking that it would be interesting to have a visual version of Ms. Taylor’s universe. The movies brought Harry Potter to life in ways that the books couldn’t. I think the same could be applied to St. Mary’s and the Time Police. Being able to actually ‘see’ things would add an interesting layer. I’m not so sure I want someone else’s interpretation of the characters, however.
You can be sure that I’ve put a reminder on my calendar for the release of Book Three and have added the book to my Wishlist over on Audible. I doubt I will wait too long to collect it once it is released so I can embark on Team Weird’s next adventure!
