Blameless
Blameless | Gail Carriger
54 posts | 149 read | 32 to read
Quitting her husband's house and moving back in with her horrible family, Lady Maccon becomes the scandal of the London season.Queen Victoria dismisses her from the Shadow Council, and the only person who can explain anything, Lord Akeldama, unexpectedly leaves town. To top it all off, Alexia is attacked by homicidal mechanical ladybugs, indicating, as only ladybugs can, the fact that all of London's vampires are now very much interested in seeing Alexia quite thoroughly dead.While Lord Maccon elects to get progressively more inebriated and Professor Lyall desperately tries to hold the Woolsey werewolf pack together, Alexia flees England for Italy in search of the mysterious Templars. Only they know enough about the preternatural to explain her increasingly inconvenient condition, but they may be worse than the vampires -- and they're armed with pesto.BLAMELESS is the third 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

This whole series is just delightful and fun on audio - Victorian steampunk with vampires, werewolves, and killer mechanical ladybugs. Oh, and this one has Templars, too. I'm almost sorry it's over, but now maybe I'll stop grinning like a loon while sitting at my desk at work. So entertaining.

Mollyanna Love this series! Alexia is such a hoot, and I‘d love to live next door to Lord Akeldama. 5mo

In my balancing act finished this fun fluffy cozy steampunky book. It is a good thing I was reading this while trying to read swamplandia (the most depressing book I have read in a long time). So three cheers for The Parasol Protectorate. Book 2 for #bookfitnesschallenge #bfc

Bit behind on reread. Finished Blameless yesterday. Favorite Quote is courtesy of Madam Lefoux: "You, sir, are a bad scientist!" Hopefully Genevieve approves of my new hat.?

3.5 - 4 ⭐ (I'm undecided)
I love the Parasol Protectorate books, but I didn't like this as much as the first two. At times, it felt like a bit of a chore to get through. I found myself getting bored. I think it may have been the lack of banter between Alexia and Lord Maccon. I'll continue with the series though.

Ohhhhh this was soooooo sooooo good!!! I think I may like this one the best yet!!! The third in the series! I can‘t say it enough how much I love this series and all the characters in it! I was shocked by so many of the events that happened in this book and i will be downloading the next book before I head to bed!! All my audible credits have been going to this! The narrator is just INCREDIBLE!! I recommend this to everyone!!! Start with Soulless!

phatsallylee This is good to know. I really enjoyed the first book. The second book left me questioning if i should continue on. 12mo

If I were Alexia, I would have then gone around licking everything I could just to spite the Templars. But I'm contrary that way.

I‘m on quite a roll with the #parasolprotectorate series! I finished the third book tonight and am loving it. I had to jump right into this one after a cliff hanger in the last and managed some beach reading while my family frolicked in the water. Thankfully Amazon is delivering me the next two books tomorrow! #79of2018

Conall is "pickled beyond the gerkin".
Alexia, Gienvieve, and Floote go on a road trip and discover the joy of pesto.
Poor Biffy is in a spot of bother and Professor Lyall is a Saint.

Alexia took a tentative sip and was quite overwhelmed by an acute sense of betrayal. It was absolutely vile tasting, a mixture of quinine and burnt dandelion leaves. “That, I am to assume, is the infamous coffee?” Madame Lefoux nodded, pouring herself a splash and then adding a good deal of honey and milk. Alexia could not believe a whole hive of honey capable of rescuing the foul drink. Imagine preferring that to tea! #teadrinkerinacoffeeworld

“I remembered that awful thing I had heard about Italy.” Ivy dabbed at the corner of one eye with her handkerchief in an excess of sentiment. “What I heard… Oh, I can hardly speak of it… I heard that in Italy they drink”—she paused—“coffee.” She shuddered delicately.

"Italy?”
“The hotbed of antisupernatural sentiment,” spat Professor Lyall.
“The cesspit of religious fanaticism,” added Tunstell."

My only complaint is the abrupt ending that left me wanting more.

I quite enjoyed this instalment in the Parasol Protectorate series! it was full of wit, sass, and a lot of fun. I really enjoy how the smaller plots of each novel really add to the larger plot of the series, but are still great on their own. Can't wait to get into the next one!
