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.

    "Good story bad splicing"

    I enjoyed the story very much, but the long pauses in the narration at strange intervals made me wonder if I'd missed something.

    "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.

    "Annoying dead space."

    This was a great story. The production was less stellar, having enough lengthy pauses at odd spots, not just chapter breaks, to add 1/2 hour or more the the audio book! It was very distracting!

    "Great book, bad production"

    A wonderful book, with a great vocal performance but so many distracting audio problems! Large gaps of silence & random breaths were very annoying! An otherwise enjoyable listen, hopefully these issues are solved in the future.

    I was a 'readaholic' for most of my life. I started crochet and other hobbies. That took away from my reading time. I discovered audio books at the library. That set me off. now, that I am older my eyes make it too difficult to read. So I now am a very diligent audio book listener!

    "Distracting pauses"

    WARNING; this is a series that has to be read/heard in order. In old days one had to get used to pauses at beginning and end of audio cassettes. These had background noises. Those sounds indicated tape playing was in progress. The length of pauses in this audiobook rivals tapes. I found myself reaching to check play status when they occurred. Pauses vary in duration making them difficult to anticipate. This is why I gave performance 2 stars. The story is very predictable. It is saved because the supporting characters so good in previous books get larger roles. I hope they get their own book or short story. The book is enjoyable, especially if you enjoyed previous books. Emily Gray does a good job narrating, the pauses interfere with performance.
