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 damper 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?
Sometimes it's fun just to read for the fun of it. And the fabulous Gail Carriger's steampunk/paranormal/historical Parasol Protectorate series is just that: FUN. Pure and simple. This is the last in the hilarious series, and while I'm sad to see it end, I'm excited to see where Carriger leaves it. Plus, following Timeless, Carriger has a companion series coming out, following a key character from this book. L'excitment!
While you're here, would you like to win a copy of the AMAZING Touch Of Power by Maria V. Snyder?
