    "Can't Move on Now"

    This book really messed with my head in the end! It's an amazing series, with characters that seem almost too real. I tried to pick up a book that I already owned before buying the next, but Gail Carriger's world won't let me go until everything from the last book is settled.

    That said, it takes a truly excellent story with peerless narration to pull me in this far. I laughed and cried with Alexia, and I look forward to continuing the series.

    "Camp fairytale for adults."
    What did you love best about Changeless?

    It surprised me at every corner, made me giggle; an 'alternate history' victorian england, where werewolf's and vampires are common and part of society.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This is a very funny and different take on the eponymos vampire literature so popular today. It is sexy and funny as well as suspenseful.


    What does Emily Gray bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    Great voice characterizations, funny and intelligent emphasis is this readers strengths, bringing out the best in this book.


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

    Yes, it had me wanting to know what happens next, since it is a detective or espionage story as well as a love story.

    "Auto-Buy Series!"

    Book 2 is just as good as book one, but the ending gave me mixed feelings. It also had me running to my computer to download the next in the series. I think if you enjoyed Soulless you're hooked for the entire series.

    "Great Series Great Narration"

    I love the humor in these books and I want all the clothes except Miss Hisselpenny’s of course. Lord Maccon is rapidly becoming my second favorite Scotsman second only to Jamie Frasier! There are great lines in this book too numerous to mention. I love Alexia’s wit and strength. This series has made it on my favorites list.

    Narrator , Emily Gray does a great job with all the characterizations and accents I will definitely look for other books she has narrated and she is now on my list of favorite narrators.

    "Great 2nd in the series with a jaw dropping ending"

    No spoilers here, but OMG on the ending! Seriously, my mouth is still open and Im like WHAAAT just happened! I have to say the beginning dragged a bit for me, and I actually stopped listening for a bit just because I was getting a little bored. I would say about 1/3 in it started to pick up an had me hanging on every word as I did with Soulless. Overall, I think I liked this book a little more(even with the slow start) just because of all the new interesting characters that were introduced. I also, in a major delay half way thru the book, realized that some of the characters in this book are the girls from the Finishing School series. I totally forgot that this series takes place in the future of that one, and I think Gail Carriger weaves it in very naturally. Its pretty cool to see what the girls are up to roughly 20 some years later.Also - I Im freaking out about the ending and will be starting in on Blameless immediately.

    As for the narration, Emily Gray is AWESOME and delivers a fantastically superb performance. If you liked Soulless, definitely continue on to this book. Its just as good if not better!

    "Author is close to changing my mind."

    3.5 overall for this book was not as good as the first, it was way less funny and the ending sucked. I am debating the next book but dang, I want to know what happens next. Although I have a feeling it will just make me mad. The story itself is pretty good but I had a bitter taste for the ending. Story started out fast paced and had potential, but the spunk and sassiness was missing and the side characters were more annoying this book. The mystery was easy to figure out, since I had doubts in the last book. Such a shame since I really liked Soulless that even though this book wasn't bad it was a let down from the first book. Same narrator and I think she did a pretty good job.

    "Not nearly as good as the first"

    I loved the first book but this one left me annoyed. A certain characters voice was so grating on my nerves I wanted to shut the book off, and the story focused entirely too much time on her "womanly duties".
    Other that those two things, I could still pick out the humour the author had written in the story, as she had in the first, which I enjoyed so much. I will still move onto the next book in the series.

    I love this series. Clever British romance/adventure stories, and the narrator helps bring them to life.

    "Glad I got the audio for this book..."
    Would you try another book from Gail Carriger and/or Emily Gray?

    I really liked the audio for this book because I could listen while I walked, etc., and the change in voices with Ms. Gray helped me to keep track of who was talking. Amazing how these readers can alter their voices. It's also helpful with some words (albeit, few) when the word is new to me, or an accent goes with a character that I may not be able to create in my mind (Lord Maccon).
    I am already on/in the next, and last book in the "Parasol Protectorate", Timeless. But sadly, there is no audio for this one. I wish more books had the audio available. I don't care for audio-books alone--I want a printed copy to follow along with, so I'll be watching for this option on my new book purchases.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Gail Carriger? Why or why not?

    I've read several others.


    What does Emily Gray bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    As I said above, the pronunciation of some words was helpful as were the accents created by Ms. Gray's voice.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    YES! As a matter of fact, I wrote about this in my review of the book.

    "A surprising sequel!"
    What did you love best about Changeless?

    I was expecting to be board by the whole married life part of the story, but I was shocked! The book was so exciting! A must read/listen in the series.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Channing Channing of the Chesterfield Channings. Read the first few pages and I think you will understand why!


    What about Emily Gray’s performance did you like?

    Emily Gray is amazing! She's a very talented voice actor. The most impressive part for me is accuracy of the accents she uses and her ability to go from one to another seamlessly. I really enjoy her performances. I have listened to a few other audio books that are steam punk and if they had been read by her I would have enjoyed the other books much better.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The end but I don't wan to spoil it. It was very shocking and leaves you wanting to read/listen to the last book.
