The final Parasol Protectorate novel and just as much fun as the others. Alexia and Prudence are summoned to Egypt. Havoc ensues both amongst them while abroad and back in London during their absence. Secrets are discovered and changes abound. All in all a worthy finale. ( )

This is the 5th and final book in the Parasol Protectorate series - loose ends are being tied up, questions answered and storylines concluded. As a result, this is probably the busiest book of the series, a lot of different things are going on in different places and, in my opinion, it affected the flow of the story somewhat. However, it was still an enjoyable read overall, with lots of intriguing events, beautifully imagined contraptions (loved the Drifters with their balloons!) and the usual attendant fun, frivolity and sheer nonsense that you'd expect from this series. I like Carriger's unfailing sense for the absurd and I will miss the engaging characters she's created. ( )

I really like this series and I think this might be the best book of all. It had lots of twists and wasn't at all predictable. ( )

Timeless is is the fifth and final novel in the Parasol Protectorate series by Gail Carriger.

Things have settled in London. Lord and Lady Macon have an established routine with Lord Akeldama, even though their daughter Prudence is a handful for all of them and bound to cause quite an uproar wherever she goes. But then Alexia and her family, particularly Prudence, are summoned to Egypt by the oldest living vampire. Taking the Tunstells and their theater group as cover, they all travel to Alexandria together.

Timeless is a very nice ending to a fun series. I didn’t like all things about it, but altogether I did enjoy it a lot.

So this is purported to the be the last book in the Parasol Protectorate which made me very sad b/c clearly there is a lot more story to be had here.

The Beta from the Kingsair pack has been murdered, the Queen of the Alexandria hive has requested Prudence and Alexia visit, and an interesting relationship develops between Lyal and Biffy. I loved watching the relationship between Lyal and Biffy develop, they were so frakkin cute. Alexia and Macon's relationship still felt a little bit stagnant at times but the adventure was definitely interesting. ( )
