I really enjoyed this series when it was originally released as full length novels and also enjoyed the first manga I read in this series. This book was just as much fun as the first one and delves even deeper into the paranormal and steampunk aspects of the world that Alexia lives in. This graphic novel covers the second book in original series Changeless.

Alexia is trying to settle in as Lady Woodsley (Lord Macoon’s wife) but there is just one challenge after another. First there is a regiment of werewolves camped in her lawn, then for some reason the supernatural creatures are losing their powers...rendering them human. A lot of the supernaturals suspect Alexia’s involvement because of her Preternatural abilities and she sets off to Scotland (in pursuit of her husband) to prove them wrong.

This book has a lot more action than the previous one; including a daring dirigible ride and many attempts on Alexia’s life. There is a lot of humor throughout, just like in the first manga.

The illustration is absolutely beautiful. The surroundings and clothing are very detailed and facial expressions are very, very well done.

I thought Alexia in this manga was more true to the original book, in the first book she was a bit more flighty and goofy...this book was more true to her character. I also really enjoyed Madame Lefoux; she has always been a very fun and intriguing character in this series.

There is a lot of mystery and intrigue. We learn a lot more about Lord Macoon’s past as well. There is a twist at the end of the story that will have readers (at least those who haven’t read the full length books already) gasping in surprise.

Overall this was just a ton of fun. I continue to really enjoy these manga renditions of the Parasol Protectorate series. They have all the best and most entertaining parts of the novels in here. The illustration is stunning and I love the witty dialogue and quirky characters. Definitely recommended to fans of steampunk and paranormal reads. ( )

I really like this series.

The second of the manga versions of Carriger's fantasy-steampunk-humor-romance romps, this is pretty darn entertaining. While the art is sometimes a little more precious than it needs to be, it's solidly within the manga style and it definitely adds an interesting dynamic to the pared-down text -- one that is a little bit sexy and a little bit adorable. Those familiar with Carriger will appreciate the humor and the visual interpretation; those unfamiliar might find that this whets the appetite for the more detailed novels. Also, how can we not love a comic version of Ivy's hats? ;) Seriously. Just read it. You know you want to. ( )

I am loving these graphic novels immensely. The illustrations are beautiful , the stories are humorous, and so the whole experience is enjoyable. ( )

A decent follow up to volume one. Again, the drawings really work for me. I'm not entirely sure why manga fits so well, but it does. I like the abbreviated version of the book(s) and I look forward to the next one. If you find that you like these books but haven't read the actual series, do so. You'll like them even more. ( )

Book description
Settling into her new life as the Lady Woolsey, Alexia finds her days quite challenging. Whether it is a regiment of supernatural soldiers camped out on her front lawn or the demands of being the Queen’s “muhjah,” there never seems to be a want of new hurdles to overcome. But when stories of supernaturals rendered normal by some unknown force begin cropping up, Alexia has a rather serious mystery on her hands. Can she root out the cause of this phenomenon, which smacks of some larger plot at work? -- publisher's website.
