Publisher's Summary

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.

    I have an hour commute (each way), so I listen to at least 4-6 per month. A bad narrator will kill a book for me faster than anything

    "The fun continues!"
    Any additional comments?

    I have been enjoying this series immensely...smart, funny, entertaining, plenty of action and a top notch narrator. Win.

    I was a bit concerned after reading some of the comments regarding the long pauses between chapters and such, but I didnt find it to be bothersome at all...either because I was prepared for it or it wasnt as noticeable to me as it is for others. I am generally pretty picky about the narrators...a bad one can really ruin a book for me. Breathy sounds, weird pauses, mispronunciations are all things that really irritate me. I was not at all irritated or distracted by the narrator in any way. And her characters and voices are delightful.

    "Not at all an engrossing book"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I don't know of anyone who would enjoy this book


    Has Blameless turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Maybe, possibly


    Any additional comments?

    Worst book ever of all that I have read.

    "Great Story, Awkwardly long pauses in narration"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Blameless to be better than the print version?

    I bought both the kindle version and audible version to be able to switch back and forth ( very great feature by the way), I enjoyed reading and listening. However, when listening to the narration, many times I would check to see if I accidentally hit pause on the audible app, because there were random and long pauses in awkward places in the story.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Emily Gray?

    I enjoy Moira Quirk's narration more (she does the other Gail Carriger series Finishing School), but having her as the narrator would not stop me from listening to the rest of the Alexia Tarrabotti books

    No

    "What a fine mess you got yourself in to, Alexia"

    Trying to avoid scandalous talk about the baby, Alexia flees England for refuge in Italy. Of course, trouble always follows Alexia and this time it's in the form of vampires. Running for her life, she thinks she finds sanctuary in Italy, but that may be another fine mess she's gotten herself in to, no thanks to her werewolf husband trying to drink away his problems. Professor Lyle keeps the story interesting, with Channing and Flute saving the day. The story opens up many questions about Alexia's little inconvience, leaving things wide open for "Heartless"

    "Fantastic Performance"

    I'm hooked on Emily Gray now. I've now listened to three books, this and the previous two in this series and I have absolutely loved it. Gray does such great voices and is consistent with her voices for each character and she's consistent in the way she delivers these lines. This is definitely a series I highly recommend the audiobook because it's almost like watching a BBC mini series with this performance.

    The story is fun and exciting. Alexia's way of seeing the world as it is, no waxing of poetry involved, is fun. It surprises people with her reasonableness. I wanted to smack her husband a few times, but I enjoyed Alexia's adventure. Even if she never wants to go on another adventure ever again.

    "Best Book Yet!"

    LOVED LOVED LOVED this book! In my opinion, the best book of the series so far! It was packed with tons of action, all my favorite characters in the series & some new ones to enjoy as well. The pace of the story as it unfolded was really well done this time, opening about 2 weeks after Changeless stops. I think one of my favorites things about Gail Carrigers' writing is that its so incredibly descriptive, where you feel like youre watching a movie more than listening to a story. That has much to do with the exceptional performance of Emily Gray as well. To be honest, I wouldn't want to imagine my interpretation of this series if having only read it. Emily Gray brings life to it on a whole other level I don't believe my imagination could create. I cant wait to start Heartless, and I am so happy with where the story is headed. I wish this series would go on and on .. like the Amelia Peabodys. If this book grabs your eye, start with Soulless, Book 1 and after, head on to Gails Finishing School series which takes place about 25 years before this. You get to learn what some of the characters in these books were up to in there much younger years!

    "Have finished all 5 books"
    Any additional comments?

    I have finished all 5 books and wish there was more available for that series, I hate when they end. Still hoping for more since book 5 didn't feel like a true ending.

    Usually not into books placed in a time so long ago but deft enjoyed this one and love books with a supernatural twist.

    Bravo

    "Nice continuation of series"

    I liked this book. The story is interesting. Alexia is fleeing England because the infant inconvenience and she runs to Italy to try to learn more about her father. I am a fan of Alexia and her parasol protectorate. Emily Gray did a nice job, as usual. My only complaint is that you hear Gray taking a breath and then there are these long pauses which can be annoying.
