    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.

    If you could sum up Changeless in three words, what would they be?

    Intrigue sexy exciting


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Alexia is my favorite. She is a strong woman and very forward for her time. She takes care of business and doesn't take any BS from men, unlike most women of the day.


    Have you listened to any of Emily Gray’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    She, as always, did a wonderful job!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Only a special woman can make the immortal, mortal. Only Alexia, has those powers and still prefers to use her parasol.

    For Durzo Blint, assassination is an art---and he is the city's most accomplished artist, his talents required from alleyway to courtly boudoir. For Azoth, survival is precarious, something you never take for granted. As a guild rat, he's grown up in the slums and learned to judge people quickly---and to take risks. Risks like apprenticing himself to Durzo Blint. But to be accepted, Azoth must turn his back on his old life and embrace a new identity and name.

    Would you listen to The Way of Shadows again? Why?

    This book was so gripping it was all I could do not to skip to the end to see what happens. There was a scene fairly early on in the book that happened; where I literally sat up in my seat, my eyes bugged out, and stopped the book and had to catch my breath and give it a second to sink in. I was in the doctor's office and I am sure I looked like an idiot, but I really didn't care. From that moment on I was emotionally invested in these characters. I immediately downloaded the second book and have it ready to go. He has a way of parsing out the information that keeps you guessing but doesn't leave you confused.


    Have you listened to any of Paul Boehmer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not listened to any other of his readings, but I enjoyed this performance


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    There were a few moments. Like I said you become very emotionally invested in these characters.


    Any additional comments?

    Go ahead and get this book. If you are on the fence about it, or if you have a credit and you are shopping around for somewhere to spend it, you will not be disappointed!

    Maybe it was the Shenanigans gift certificate that put her over the edge. When children's librarian and self-professed nice girl Jane Jameson is fired by her beastly boss and handed $25 in potato skins instead of a severance check, she goes on a bender that's sure to become Half Moon Hollow legend. On her way home, she's mistaken for a deer, shot, and left for dead.

    Sexy, quirky, funny


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Missy the realtor was a great character. I loved the voice the narrator gave to her. It suited her so well.


    What does Amanda Ronconi bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love the way she could embody each character so well. They all had their own voice, and you were never guessing who that was supposed to be talking.


    Any additional comments?

    The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars was that in certain points of the book I found myself double-checking to see if the author was a man. Some reactions were a little sexist, but not so much you can't just shrug your shoulders and move on. Overall this book was very very good and I have already gotten the second one on my list.
