Heartless by Gail Carriger
My Rating: 4 of 5 Stars
Still working on the Parasol Protectorate series, and happily, still enjoying it very much. Book 4, Heartless, shakes things up a bit with a change in the status of the werewolves and their abode, and likewise, with the “hive” of Vampires. (A totally unexpected twist, for me.) And of course, the family situations change a great deal, too, from Alexia’s relationship with her rotten sister, Felicity (what a name for such an irritating piece of work), to her relationship with the equally irritating Madame Lefoux, her friendship with the hilariously campy Lord Akeldama, and closer to home, her family life with her often bumbling but always well-meaning husband, Lord Maccon. Things shift, the balance of power goes this way and that, there’s laughter a-plenty, and a bit of a miracle by the end. And throughout it all, Lord and Lady Maccon keep at it in their inimitably daft ways, unshakable in their devotion to each other, but changing and growing in many other ways, nevertheless.
Try it. You’ll like it!! (But be sure to read the books in order: Soulless, Changeless, Blameless, Heartless, and Timeless. What a world!
