Eager reader of history, mystery, classics, biographies, steampunk, lit fic, science, scifi, and etc. My reviews are mostly positive--I rarely finish or write about books I don't enjoy. My TBR is too high for that.

Heartless (Parasol Protectorate Series #4)

Heartless - Gail Carriger I missed a lot of the regular characters in the last installment of this supernatural steampunk series set in Queen Victoria's fashion and protocol-obsessed England. The regulars didn't make much of an appearance in Blameless because soulless Lady Alexia Maccon was on the run, but Rove vampire Lord Akeldama, best friend Ivy, sister Felicity, and werewolf husband Lord Maccon are back in a great story that has a very pregnant Lady Alexia trying to prevent the murder of the queen after a confused but determined ghost alerts her to the danger. On the way Alexia learns a lot more about her husband's past and it's a tight, fascinating story.
