I suggest readers begin with the first book, which introduces the characters in Timeless, the fifth book of the Parasol Protectorate series, but, having said that, this book can be enjoyed as is. I would recommend the books in this series for readers looking for a light hearted, enjoyable romp through Victorian England, complete with campy Vampires, endearing Werewolves and the irrepressible, if bossy, heroine of the series, Alexia, whose main hobby in life is to take charge in a crisis.
I would indeed recommend this series, particularly if you are looking for some light hearted holiday reading with a comedic twist. Funny, sexy and irreverent.
The narrator does a good job of voicing most of the characters, and maintains the pace and flow of the story well. Easy to listen to.
No follow up book needed, as this is the fifth in the series.
Great fun. Well narrated. Most enjoyable.
This is the second title that I've read by this author, and although she has again provided an interesting tale with amusing literary references in this extended time travel tale, she again needs a good strong editor to prune down the unnecessarily extended and repetitive elements in the storyline.
Yes, I get that this is a novel about time travel, which means going back again [and again] in time to fix mistakes, but on the fourth or fifth time around with the same tone, characters and situations I found it wearisome indeed.
The characters are two dimensional, the humour at times obvious and heavy handed. It's sort of a groundhog day of a book, which is a shame, because with a paring down and a concomitant increase in pace this story would have some charm.
No, I think I've got it now.
The performance was fine.
My reaction to this story was along the lines of 'for god's sake, get on with it'.
