    "Entertaining"

    I'm glad to see that I am not the only person who found the lengthy pauses between chapters very annoying. Overall, this is an entertaining light-hearted series.

    "Makes me want to be a women of the old time"

    I loved this story. It was well written and Emily Gray makes me envision this story so clearly. I laughed and fell right into the times. The whole combination of werewolves and vampires coexisting in this book is rich. Looking forward to the next one.

    Story
    "Pride and Prejudice meets vampires and werewolves!"

    Fun series with witty interactions and a feel of P & P to it, though a lot more romantic interactions, all tastefully done of course.

    "full steam fun"

    A delightful mix of fantasy and Victorian England, at the same time fresh and wittty. The quirky mix of characters is great. The action and adventure have the flavor of the "Wild, Wild West" storyline, with crazy gadgets and wacky heros and villains--and steamy love interest. Great chemistry among the characters. Don't be fooled by the outward simplicity, Carriger walks the walk of both the erudite and urbane.

    "What's With the Pauses?"

    I really enjoy this series, but the pauses in the narration of this installment were really, really irritating. They pull the listener out of the story, which is why I only gave it four stars instead of five.

    "A little disappointed"

    I enjoyed Soulless so much I couldn't wait for the second book to come out, and it appears I accidentally downloaded this book second. The best thing about Soulless was the witty, snappy rapport between Alexia and Connall, although I thoroughly enjoyed the supporting characters. In Blameless, Connall spends most of his time in a drunken stupor, separate from his wife, who is in grave peril. Unfortunately, whe he finally comes to his senses, he puts duty before love, and delays in finding her. So much for his volatile, emotional character. She easily forgives him, and they reunite with little fanfare. I waited through the whole book for this disappointing climax. The book was amusing, a nice little book, but I definitely won't wait with bated breath for the next in the series.

    "Fun read"

    While not quite as good as the first two in the series (Soulless and Changeless), it still is a fun book. The only fault is in the production. For some reason the engineers have lengthened the dead space between chapters and this is very annoying.

    Story
    "Can't Get Enough"
    What did you love best about Blameless?

    Hilarious satire about the dress of the Victorian era.


    What other book might you compare Blameless to and why?

    It is a Steampunk Victorian version of Sookie Stackhouse.


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

    The GRRR of the handsome sexy werewolf.


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

    YES and I got the rest of the series immediately and wanted more.


    Any additional comments?

    One of the best series I have listened to lately. Maybe ever and I listen a lot.

    "It was so so"

    The story was okay....It still was not as good as the first and I kind of lost some respect for Alexia Tarrabotti for running so swiftly back to her stupid husband after he basically called her a whore....but what are you going to do? I am very interested in the baby though can't wait to see about that.
