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!
Yes, I love the the overarching plot of the series
It's really good, you'll have to read the next...
Started with a bang and ended with a bang, but the middle dragged and I had to put it aside for a bit... luckily shadow of night came out to distract me. There were also a lot of long pauses between chapters that made it hard to follow at times.
the first one was funny sexy, and fast paced, but they keep going down hill. Less suspense, less romance, less humor. and more unintelligible, made up science
the narration was still as good as the first
Great Fun ! Love the fact the heroine is lauded for her bodacious-ness instead of being "rail-thin"...
But also a fun story. Part animal story, part mystery, part lusty romance.
The best part of these books is Ivy. The author's use of her voice highlight the absurd in polite society has me cracking up every time.
The protagonist's forthright manner and prosaic attitude make nearly all her battles and chases entertaining.
This entire series is so much fun. I listened to all of them back to back, I was so into them.
The narrator does a stellar job, so I'd highly recommend to read them as audio books.
this series is great. it gets better as you get to know the characters, it reminds me a little of the Amelia Peabody series by Elizabeth peters, same type of lead characters without the supernatural. i have completly enjoyed the series and love that it has some comedy to it too.
One of the more fun historical novels recently written.
Alexia is fun, witty and determined. What's not to like?
The narrators ability to portray the different characters by vocal inflection, accent, and pitch is fun and easy to listen to.
I laughed all the way through it!
A witty and fun way to spend listening time...anytime!
