    "One Of My Favorites"

    The third book in this series delivers poignant moments and continues the general wit that is so enjoyable. Not only will I finish out this series, but hope that the next two series from Gail Carriger makes it to an audio format as well.

    "Pauses"

    Emily Gray does a wonderful job performing this story / series, but in this particular book the pauses were much to long, at times I thought that something had happened to the playback. Other that that, I have greatly enjoyed this series so far.

    "A helping of boring followed by a wall-banging end"

    I adored the 1st in the series, was just meh with the 2nd, and thought I'd just be bored with this. Until I reached the ending. If this were a book, I would have hurled it at the wall in disgust. But since it's a digital audiobook, I just immediately deleted it from my player and then figuratively stomped all over it. I thought the narrator did a great job with the voices--they were all very distinct and enjoyable. There were some enjoyable parts, but for most of it, I just wanted a resolution of the mystery and to get Alexia and Connall back together for his groveling scene. SPOILER ALERT: Alexia acts as if she hadn't been betrayed, humiliated and endangered by Connall's throwing her to the wolves. Err, vamps that is. She forgives him in 2 minutes (even though he doesn't actually apologize) and says he can make it up to her by giving her a bunch of stuff. They exchange some witty barbs and all is forgiven. Can you say shallow? Or maybe the author just wants to show the extent of Alexia's soulless-ness? This is one of those books where you wish you could scour out your brain in order to forget the experience. If you're not invested in the characters and are reading this series just for the steampunk elements, you might still like it. I'd only read/listen to the next in the series if Lord Akeldama were the main character and Alexia was relegated to the far sidelines.

    "Great Story, Great Narrator, Poor Audio Editing"

    Another great story by Gail Carriger. The enjoyment was hampered by the unnecessary pauses and silence gaps between transitions.

    "Fun Victorian roadtrip"

    Very enjoyable lighthearted story with strong heroine and female characters mixed in with the giddy ones. The narrator did a wonderful job as usual. The editor could have eliminated some long pauses but they weren't too disruptive.

    "Great story...and a great many pauses"

    So many pauses! Loooong pauses. Great story and performance but don't know why the dreadfully long pauses couldn't be edited out.

    "Five Stars All Around!"

    Just fantastic. I love everything about this series. It's all basically a huge, hilarious, well-written slap in the face to Twilight. And I love every page of it. From story, to narration, to just how loveable all the characters are.
