I have finished all 5 books and wish there was more available for that series, I hate when they end. Still hoping for more since book 5 didn't feel like a true ending.
Usually not into books placed in a time so long ago but deft enjoyed this one and love books with a supernatural twist.
I liked this book. The story is interesting. Alexia is fleeing England because the infant inconvenience and she runs to Italy to try to learn more about her father. I am a fan of Alexia and her parasol protectorate. Emily Gray did a nice job, as usual. My only complaint is that you hear Gray taking a breath and then there are these long pauses which can be annoying.
SMART FUNNY ADVENTURE
The laughs , the adventures of a strong will woman
Not that kind of book
Say something about yourself!
I really love hearing Emily Gray voice all of these wonderful characters.
Hard to say, I think Channing is still my favorite character. He's a small part but ads so much!
Emily Gray is amazing! I have listened to her in the previous books and she is just so talented! She brings so much to the characters!
Not to give anything away, but the final fight really said something to me. The way Alexia's friends came together and made their own fighting force was really impacting!
I really love this series, I have given the hard copy books to three friends and they have all loved it!
I loved this clever writing and all the amazing research that was apparent in the Alexia Tarabotti books. I could not wait till this last one but the first 2 were so amazing that I was a bit let down by the third. It just seemed very contrived - forced even - and did not flow as well as the rest. I was disappointed, Perhaps the author felt rushed to complete this last installment - but it just did not have the clarity or believability of the previous ones. I fell in love with Alexia in the first 2 books but in this one I just wanted to clobber her over the head. She lost her charm. I hope the next featuring the new arrival will go back to the par oF the first two. I AM ROOTING FOR IT!
the continuation of what would happen next - based on the first 2 books.
This was the worst of the 3 I have listed to.
The reader is amazing. Her voices make the books come alive. Love listening to her!
The reader's tremendous job made my experience of listening to Blameless most enjoyable.
I love so many of the characters for their many layers. My favorite character in this book of the series is Madam Lafoux because of her wit and resourcefulness.
Emily Gray is terrific at bringing the characters to life and not getting you confused over which character is talking.
I definitely wanted to listen to this whole book in one sitting.
Designer. Aviation Enthusiast. Fitness Instructor. Love books. Prefer long series with happy endings in mystery, comedy, fantasy, & romance.
It's one of my favorites.
Its a fantasy adventure: Twilight set back in time?
She is a fantastic reader. I love the way she narrates voices (more more detail on this read my review of the first book) but needless to say the way she pulls her own and remains unified in the tones. You really get into the adventure and differentiate the characters!
Shes falling for the baby finally. Learning of her nature and discovering who her true friends are. This book moves you past the getting to know you stage and settles you into the series. At this point you know the characters and move into some action. It feels like a real family feud at points. Very 50 shades of gray meets Twilight but with more modesty set back a century add in a steam punk feel of decor and that is the Alexia series.
Love it. Is that enough? Well probably not to sell books but I suppose its enough to get my sentiments across. One thing I will say is I wish Audible would always put what number the book is in a series in the title. Would make them easier to sort.
I continue to love Carriger's style, Alexia herself, and the excellent reading of Emily Gray.
Carriger's world just gets richer and richer.
I was impressed that Carriger handled the marital conflict so well, without it feeling trite or manipulative.
Blameless is another great read, and I am still in love with this series and can't wait to see where it goes!
