    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.

    Story

    First off: this is the third of 5 stories and they really won't make sense unless you attack them in order.

    Second: Carriger's story is finally taking shape...I guess she started to do that in Changeless, but Blameless is where it became obvious that there was a bigger mystery unfolding. Also, some of the more repetitive jokes from the first two books---such as Alexia's libido---got downplayed in this one.

    Third: It is also the first book in which characters other than Alexia and Connel take center stage...in particular, Professor Lyall.

    Lastly: The non-English accents presented in this book didn't tax Emily Gray's diction as much as the previous book.
