  • Changeless: An Alexia Tarabotti Novel, Book 2

    Gail Carriger created a fascinating steampunk vision of Victorian England in her “intoxicatingly witty” (Publishers Weekly, starred review) debut novel Soulless—the first in the best-selling Parasol Protectorate series. Changeless is the second in the series and finds Alexia Tarabotti, now the Lady Woolsey, quite put out after her werewolf husband goes missing. So, armed with her trusty parasol, Alexia boards a dirigible and heads for Scotland to find him.

    Would you listen to Changeless again? Why?

    Yes, I would listen again. Alexia is straight forward and amusing at the same time. The character development of all the characters is well thought out and most of them are extremely unexpected.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Alexia is my favorite character in these books. As a pragmatic woman, who speaks her mind is extremely entertaining. Her attitude toward the acceptable and social status expected in the class conscious England of the late 1800 is refreshing and laugh out loud in it's boldness.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    All scenes in which Alexia swings her parasol rate high on my list. When she first meets the BUR head investigator makes you laugh out loud. And in the humor and craziness around her, there are also touching scenes, like when Alexia helps an old vampire watch a sunset unharmed.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I read while I drive. I didn't want to reach my destination as I wanted to hear what happened next.


    Any additional comments?

    The entire changeless series is delightful. I would recommend you listen to all of them in order, and be prepared to laugh out loud.

    After being murdered by a mystery assailant, navigating his way through the realm between life and death, and being brought back to the mortal world, Harry realizes that maybe death wasn’t all that bad - because he is no longer Harry Dresden, Chicago’s only professional wizard. He is now Harry Dresden, Winter Knight to Mab, the Queen of Air and Darkness. After Harry had no choice but to swear his fealty, Mab wasn’t about to let something as petty as death steal away the prize she had sought for so long.

    Ryder is the hardest Montgomery brother to figure out - with a tough-as-nails outside and possibly nothing too soft underneath. He’s surly and unsociable, but when he straps on a tool belt, no woman can resist his sexy swagger. Except, apparently, Hope Beaumont, the innkeeper of his own Inn BoonsBoro.... As the former manager of a D.C. hotel, Hope is used to excitement and glamour, but that doesn’t mean she can’t appreciate the joys of small-town living. She’s where she wants to be - except for in her love life....

    Listen to all three of these books in order. Makes me want to visit the real Inn Boonsboro which is owned by Nora Roberts family. The town of Boonsboro and the residents responsible to keeping downtown alive keep you entertained through all three books. This is book three of the series, and once you listen to the first two, you will want to find out about who Elizabeth really is and what happened to Billy, and will have to download this one.

    Listening will bring bursts of laughter and bouts of tears.

    The historic hotel in Boonsboro has endured war and peace, the changing of hands, and even rumored hauntings. Now it’s getting a major face-lift from the Montgomery brothers and their eccentric mother. As the architect in the family, Beckett’s social life consists mostly of talking shop over pizza and beer. But there’s another project he’s got his eye on: the girl he’s been waiting to kiss since he was sixteen.

    As truck drivers my husband and i listen as we drive. This entire series is fantastic. The characters are amusing, touching, and truly unforgettable. Normally, once I hear a book, it takes a while before I am ready to listen to it again. This series however, I find myself re-listening the next day while he's driving instead of going to sleep as I should, and laughing out loud again, even though I just listened to it the night before.

    Boonsboro, the small town in Maryland has both male and female characters who are strong successful individuals, yet vulnerable in their own ways. Nora Roberts always entertains, but this series may become my all time favorite of hers (which in the past was the In Death series she writes under JD Robb). Don't miss the fun nor the ghost in Inn Boonsboro as the Montgomery boys meet their individual matches, in women, dogs, and kids.

    And as Hope says in the final book of this series, what women wouldn't want to grow up to be Justine Montgomery, the mother and driving force of the Montgomery clan.

    Story

    As an avid listener (I drive 10-11 hours daily) I have a number of series that I wait and watch for new releases. I can tell you right now that this will be one of those on the top of the list. There are plenty of changeling books out there, but this one brings a new twist. As our wolf changeling started as a Navy Seal team with some ESP type powers, who after an attack in Afghanistan are recruited to work for the government out of the Wyoming wilderness to help ward off attacks by the non human populations of the world. As with humans, not all paranormal creatures are bad, and our team captures those preying on humans with the hopes of rehabilitation. As always, there is a bad guy, in these books its a corporation trying to manipulate human DNA and create their own changelings.

    The characters in our Alpha pack are developing into the characters we love, and some we will always love to hate. I will be listening to the next book soon and hope that JD Tyler doesn't leave us hanging for too long between books.

    It was a dark and stormy knight, and nine dark defenders embarked upon a most perilous quest. They're the ultimate defenders of humanity, modern day knights who do dark deeds for all the right reasons. In this all-star collection, nine of today's hottest paranormal authors bring us thrilling, all-new stories of supernatural knights that are brimming with magic mystery and mayhem.

    Where does Dark and Stormy Knights rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I enjoyed most of the short stories from Dark and stormy Knights. I like a longer book better than short stories on the whole.


    What other book might you compare Dark and Stormy Knights to and why?

    Jim Butcher's Dresden series as well as Ilona Andrews' Kate Daniels series


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When the mob boss saves the little girl. He's not as bad as he wants you to believe


    Any additional comments?

    I especially liked the story by Jim Butcher. Instead of a story about the main character in his Dresden series, he writes a story about one of Dresden's adversaries. He makes the mob boss human and likeable. At the end he adds the twist that the security measures he uses to destroy the monster that attacks his headquarters were put in place for his final confrontation with Dresden. Now you don't want either of these characters to lose that confrontation.

    Harry Bosch has been given three years before he must retire from the LAPD, and he wants cases more fiercely than ever. In one morning, he gets two. DNA from a 1989 rape and murder matches a 29-year-old convicted rapist. Was he an eight-year-old killer, or has something gone terribly wrong in the new Regional Crime Lab? Then Bosch and his partner are called to a death scene fraught with internal politics....

    As the Harry Bosch series has grown, so has Harry. In recent books (say the last 5 or 6) his relationship with the woman who gave birth to his daughter was evaluated. now in this new case, he meets a new woman and his feelings regarding sexual predators is questioned, as well as whether she is attempting to use him. In the meantime, his old nemesis is back and still causing trouble in the council with the police budget. When Irvin Irving (yeah that's the nemesis' name) asks Harry to prove if his son was killed or committed suicide he gets drawn into politics while he really wants to work an old case of a sexual predator. Being Harry, he will successfully solve both cases while becoming closer to his daughter (an amazingly bright teenager) and examining his own feeling of retirement.

    Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, doesn’t care much for witches. Still, he’s about to make nice with the local coven by signing a mutually beneficial nonaggression treaty when suddenly the witch population in modern-day Tempe, Arizona, quadruples overnight. And the new girls are not just bad, they’re badasses with a dark history on the German side of World War II. With a fallen angel feasting on local high school students, a horde of Bacchants blowing in from Vegas, and a dangerously sexy Celtic goddess of fire vying for his attention, Atticus is having trouble scheduling the witch hunt.

    The last Druid, only wanting to be left in peace, is constantly drawn into combat with the various Gods, The premise is that all Gods exist that people still remember, be they Greek, Roman, Druid, Etc. Even Jesus and Mother Mary help out our Druid, who only wants to be left in peace to honor the earth and repair a large damaged area in the mountains which was damaged in the first book. I recommend the entire series. If you liked Harry Dresden by Jim Butcher, you will like these. Our Druid is not only over 2100 years old, but has a great dog he mind speaks with, a sparkling wit, and a variety of friends and characters to amuse, scare, and keep you entertained.
