Heartless | Gail Carriger
Lady Alexia Maccon, soulless, is at it again, only this time the trouble is not her fault. When a mad ghost threatens the queen, Alexia is on the case, following a trail that leads her deep into her husband's past. Top that off with a sister who has joined the suffragette movement (shocking!), Madame Lefoux's latest mechanical invention, and a plague of zombie porcupines, Alexia barely has time to remember she happens to be eight months pregnant.Will Alexia manage to determine who is trying to kill Queen Victoria before it is too late? Is it the vampires again or is there a traitor lurking about in wolf's clothing? And what, exactly, has taken up residence in Lord Akeldama's second best closet?HEARTLESS is the fourth book of the Parasol Protectorate series: a comedy of manners set in Victorian London, full of werewolves, vampires, dirigibles, and tea-drinking.The Parasol ProtectorateSoullessChangelessBlamelessHeartlessTimelessFor more from Gail Carriger, check out:The Custard ProtocolPrudenceImprudenceFinishing School (YA)Etiquette & EspionageCurtsies & ConspiraciesWaistcoats & WeaponryManners & Mutiny

Not my favorite of the series, but still a fun listen, especially while doing mindless tasks at work. I‘m looking forward to learning more about the newest addition to the preternatural/supernatural set. 😉

Great timing on this hold coming in! My husband has been away for work the last 2 weeks, and I can use some good company in the evening after the boys are in bed. Lady Maccon fits the bill!

This is what happens when your reading inspires your spring gardening. You bring home Sweet Alyssum - Lobularia hybrid - Dark Knight and a Hedgehog; which you name Hedgeford Hogen-Daz. 💜🦔🤓

These books are so much fun. While there were a few bits that irked me throughout this, mainly some inconsistencies in character, on the whole this was another enjoyable madcap adventure which I would recommend.

I just finished this audiobook this morning while dropping kiddos off to the babysitter and BOY OH BOY!!! I didn‘t think the series could get any better!! There were a lot of shockers in this 4th book of the series and it was just fabulous! I can‘t recommend this series enough. And if your going to read it, definitely do audio bc the narrator is marvelous! I would give this 10⭐️it was that good! Make sure to read the first 3 before this one! 📚

It has started out different than any of the other books but I can hardly wait to see what is in store! The narrator Emily Gray is beyond ahhmazing! I definitely recommend the audio of these!

This fourth installment of the Parasol Protectorate took forever to arrive, and I had to wait nearly a month before I could dive back into this fluffy and fun #steampunk series! This is an exciting addition and I‘m excited to see what the ramifications of this thrilling conclusion will mean for the last book in the series!!

This volume of the Parasol Protectorate was engaging and entertaining! I enjoyed every page - especially Alexia's internal monologue addressed to the infant inconvenience!

Felicity has become much more interesting in Heartless. I hope that she is actually changing from the annoying, vapid character she has been in previous books. I have not gotten very deep into the novel yet, but at this point every time Felicity is around I am hearing Sister Suffragette from Mary Poppins.

More Parasol than ever before! And liberal application of tea to solve all the world's worries. Carriger does a fantastic job of continuing to develop her characters, they actually grow as people as the series progresses. With each new story she also fleshes out the supporting characters so you have a richer story. In this entry there's plenty of intrigue - with supernatural AND scientists involved this times.

jpmcwisemorgan I read this as part of the #24in48 #readathon and it counts toward my Goodreads challenge goal, but not for any other challenge. 😊 3y

jpmcwisemorgan @BekahB I read them years ago but I recently read The Finishing School series for #LitsyAtoZ and I plan to read the books that are out for The Custard Protocol series so I decided to re-read these for continuity purposes. I think you should definitely pick the series back up! 3y

And we're on to Heartless, bk 4 of the Parasol Protectorate. Absolutely loving these books about a soulless lady in Victorian England, married to a werewolf and best friends with a vampire. Lots of derring-do, parasols and copious amounts of tea.
