    Gail Carriger’s best-selling Parasol Protectorate series reimagines Victorian England with vampires, werewolves, and a dash of steampunk. Blameless is the third in the series starring the parasol-wielding Lady Alexia Maccon, formerly Alexia Tarabotti. After news spreads of her delicate condition—a surprise to everyone since she’s married to a werewolf—Alexia is desperate to escape the London gossip. So she heads to Italy for a change of scenery.

    The reader's tremendous job made my experience of listening to Blameless most enjoyable.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    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.


    What about Emily Gray’s performance did you like?

    Emily Gray is terrific at bringing the characters to life and not getting you confused over which character is talking.


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

    I definitely wanted to listen to this whole book in one sitting.

  • Heartless: The Parasol Protectorate, the Fourth

    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?

    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 recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this audiobook to any friend who likes strong female characters and perhaps a love for the British.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Changeless?

    One of the most memorable moments of Changeless is when Alexia encounters Miss Ivy Hisselpenny while dangling in the wind.


    Which character – as performed by Emily Gray – was your favorite?

    My favorite character - as performed by Emily Gray - is Miss Ivy Hisselpenny. She makes a characters who could be all too easily annoying seem endearing and amusing.

    Alexia Tarabotti, Lady Maccon, has settled into domestic bliss. Of course, being Alexia, such bliss involves integrating werewolves into London High society, living in a vampire's second best closet, and coping with a precocious toddler who is prone to turning supernatural willy-nilly. Even Ivy Tunstell's acting troupe's latest play, disastrous to say the least, cannot put a damper on Alexia's enjoyment of her new London lifestyle.
