The third in the Chronicles of St Mary's series gets even darker. Whilst these books are mostly light and witty and exciting, people do die and often not in a nice way.
This time, the team visits Troy to see if the wooden horse story is true. They have to hang around and live there for a while. This is no Star Trek, though. They don't have communicators and universal translators, so they have to keep mostly to themselves.
I really enjoy this series of books. I think the concept is a great one and the execution very enjoyable. So what if there are a few deus ex machinas along the way?
