Love everything about Gail Carriger's Parasol Protectorate series. Fun, easy on the brain, ever-entertaining, steampunk, genre fantasy fiction - what's not to love? It's unique in it's plot development, with truly fun characters and scene settings that are never rushed. When I finish reading Timeless, the last book in the series - I will be sad. ( )

Another fun read from Gail Carriger and her Parasol Protectorate. Heartless is a great addition to the series. Book number four finds Alexi Tarabotti Maccon has been reinstated to her position as muhjah and is in the final weeks (months?) of her pregnancy. Although quite uncomfortable in her pregnancy, Alexi still manages to relocate her household to London and stumble upon a plan to kill the queen.

I listened to Heartless as an Audible audiobook download and enjoyed it as much as I did the audio version of Blameless. Both books did have the same narrator, Emily Gray, so that would explain why I equally enjoyed both audiobooks.

The Parasol Protectorate continues to be an entertaining series to read. Carriger used this book to set up a couple of new story arcs to come in the next book or two and I am looking forward to finding out what happens.

A frantic mess, with way too many plotlines shoehorned in. ( )

Don't pick up the series here since you are pretty well dropped into the middle of the world and characters but if you've read and enjoyed the other books in this series then this one is from the same mold. I really missed Lord Akeldama in the 3rd book and was happy to see lots of him here. The first half is a enjoyable romp with a very pregnant Alexia waddling around investigating a threat to the Queen. The characters are so great and the world so enjoyable that you don't really realize that not a whole lot happens. Then the second half really picks up and events from the past are revealed and current events turn the world somewhat topsy-turvey. ( )

Book description
Lady Alexia Maccon, soulless, is at it again, only this time the trouble is not her fault. When a mad ghost threatens the queen, Alexia is on the case, following a trail that leads her deep into her husband's past. Top that off with a sister who has joined the suffragette movement (shocking!), Madame Lefoux's latest mechanical invention, and a plague of zombie porcupines and Alexia barely has time to remember she happens to be eight months pregnant.

Will Alexia manage to determine who is trying to kill Queen Victoria before it is too late? Is it the vampires again or is there a traitor lurking about in wolf's clothing? And what, exactly, has taken up residence in Lord Akeldama's second best closet?
