    Audiophile since the days I had to check 'em out on rickety cassette tapes at the local library. Currently working the other side of production as an author of romance and scifi/fantasy.

    "Truly Changeless: I wouldn't change a thing."
    Any additional comments?

    It's a great achievement to create a sequel that outshines the first installment. Ms. Carriger achieved this momentous feat in comical,endearing, and at times, heartbreaking perfection. The narrator and this story melt together like cheese and toast. Loved it, can't say enough good things.

    "Not as good as the first or the third of the serie"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    yes, part of a good series.


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

    She's good at British and Scottish accents and different voices for the wide range of characters.

    "I am hooked!"

    My sister recommended this series to me and I was very pleasantly surprised with the first book. Changeless has shown me that the first book was not a fluke. Alexia Tarabotti Mcconn, is a force to be reckoned with and I really like that she and her husband adore one another... This series makes me laugh out loud!

    "Better than e last!"
    If you could sum up Changeless in three words, what would they be?

    Intrigue sexy exciting


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Alexia is my favorite. She is a strong woman and very forward for her time. She takes care of business and doesn't take any BS from men, unlike most women of the day.


    Have you listened to any of Emily Gray’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    She, as always, did a wonderful job!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Only a special woman can make the immortal, mortal. Only Alexia, has those powers and still prefers to use her parasol.

    Story
    "Suffers from sequel-itis"

    I enjoyed the first book in this series, but this one didn't do it for me on several levels.

    First off, the combination Victorian bodice ripper, steampunk fantasy and Dracula was the central mysteries of the story weren't all that mysterious. Next, several of the tricksy plot twists were pretty obvious.

    Lastly, Emily Gray's reading, particularly the numerous Scottish and French accents, got pretty tiresome.

    Story
    "Too sci-fi"

    I read the first book "Souless", which was a hoot. A different take on vampires, werewolves, etc.
    Unfortunately, this second book was getting a little too sci-fi for me. I listened to half and although the characters are cute and the narrative is excellent, the story line got more outrageous, than I'd like.
