A fine ending to a fine little series–Timeless by Gail Carriger, fifth and final installment in the Parasol Protectorate series.
I must say, I enjoyed this book far better than any other book in this series. A feat as I usually feel the ending to some series are not adequate.
It had a little more mystery than the rest (nothing too strong for y’all James Patterson fans). The usual obsession with fashion which I have by now mastered to overlook. There was not much fixation for manners this time, sadly. Prudence is too adorable to not be loved dearly. Compared to previous books in this series, I would say there was not as much running about here and there.
The series keeps its light-heartedness with this book as well. Not a bad read,. not a bad read at all.
Good reads Insert: Alexia Tarabotti, Lady Maccon, has settled into domestic bliss. Of course, being Alexia, such bliss involves integrating werewolves into London High society, living in a vampire’s second best closet, and coping with a precocious toddler who is prone to turning supernatural willy-nilly. Even Ivy Tunstell’s acting troupe’s latest play, disastrous to say the least, cannot put a dampener on Alexia’s enjoyment of her new London lifestyle.
Until, that is, she receives a summons from Alexandria that cannot be ignored. With husband, child and Tunstells in tow, Alexia boards a steamer to cross the Mediterranean. But Egypt may hold more mysteries than even the indomitable Lady Maccon can handle. What does the vampire Queen of the Alexandria Hive really want from her? Why is the God-Breaker Plague suddenly expanding? And how has Ivy Tunstell suddenly become the most popular actress in all the British Empire?
