    Lady Alexia Maccon, soulless, is at it again, only this time the trouble is not her fault. When a mad ghost threatens the queen, Alexia is on the case, following a trail that leads her deep into her husband's past. Top that off with a sister who has joined the suffragette movement (shocking!), Madame Lefoux's latest mechanical invention, and a plague of zombie porcupines and Alexia barely has time to remember she happens to be eight months pregnant. Can Alexia determine who is trying to kill Queen Victoria?

    What made the experience of listening to Heartless the most enjoyable?

    The narrator is wonderful! I have never heard a female narrator do so many different characters - especially men - so well. I always knew who was talking by the voice. If you like a good plot, strong characters, an interesting steampunk story and lots of fun - even when the moment is tense - you will love this series. I sometimes found myself laughing out loud as I listened. I am actually considering listening to the whole series again when I'm done - something I have never done before - that is how good this series is.

    This novel allows the unscrupulous and proud Queen of the Nile to recount her own tale. A masterful recreation of history.

    What would have made The Memoirs of Cleopatra better?

    If you don't know anything about Cleopatra and her time, this is interesting from a mostly historical perspective. However, if you are looking for an engaging, interesting read, this doesn't fit the bill. It is dry, mostly told as a story rather than an experience, with most of the action taking place in third person. Most of the interesting stuff happens off stage, if you will, and she makes mention of it in her memoir. Also, Cleopatra is portrayed here as a not-so-interesting character, but with a lot of insight and introspective evaluation. Admittedly, this book didn't hold my attention past the first download (there are 7 total), so maybe if I had stuck it out it would have gotten more engaging. However, I am a busy person and have vowed not to waste my precious time on things that are less than great as this is.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Margaret George again?

    No.
