Real life is quite disappointing!

I found it due to an Amazon advert, the first book was 99p.

If anyone else enjoyed it, can you recommend anything else for me to read please?

I too tend to mourn when I finish each one grin
Have you read the "Laundry Files" series by Charles Stross?
Or the "Rivers of London" series by Ben Aaronovitch? I like both of those.

I love the Chronicles of St Mary's.
Haven't found anything else quite like it.

Try The Company series by Kage Baker.

Ooh thanks for the suggestions! Will look them up on my Kindle later.

Real life is indeed disappointing. Too much St Mary's has also left me with a deep and abiding suspicion of anyone who drinks coffee...

Ben Aaronovitch - Rivers of London series. About a PC who is also a trainee wizard. Similar 'feel' - humour, slightly odd, blend of real and unreal - if not time travel and history based. Depends what grabbed you about St Mary's.

Sorry, should say I second Ben Aaronovitch. Was in my head but not my typing ...

Have just finished book 7. Properly sobbed over the fall out over the sword. The way she writes just sucks you in and rides rough shod over your emotions.

Just about to download book 8 now grin

Waves.

I do love the books and the whole world it's built around.

I also have really enjoyed...
The Kate Daniels 'Magic Bites' series. In fact practically everything by Ilona Andrews - the Inkeeper books are a lovely read too.
The Templar series.
The Charley Davidson books - First Grave on the left (or right, I forget)
The Marnie Baranuik series - lots of swearing, but very funny
Grave Secret/Ice cold grave etc by whoever wrote the Sookie books - again, I forget.
