Gail Carriger created a fascinating steampunk vision of Victorian England in her “intoxicatingly witty” (Publishers Weekly, starred review) debut novel Soulless—the first in the best-selling Parasol Protectorate series. Changeless is the second in the series and finds Alexia Tarabotti, now the Lady Woolsey, quite put out after her werewolf husband goes missing. So, armed with her trusty parasol, Alexia boards a dirigible and heads for Scotland to find him.
Keep chilled: Listen to another Alexia Tarabotti novel.

Say something about yourself!
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.
Channing Channing of the Chesterfield Channings. Read the first few pages and I think you will understand why!
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.
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.
I would recommend this audiobook to any friend who likes strong female characters and perhaps a love for the British.
One of the most memorable moments of Changeless is when Alexia encounters Miss Ivy Hisselpenny while dangling in the wind.
My favorite character - as performed by Emily Gray - is Miss Ivy Hisselpenny. She makes a characters who could be all too easily annoying seem endearing and amusing.
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.
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.
Her best friend hisselpenny got intolerably dumb and the sister was annoying.
Wierd but the ending, I thought it was the most emotional and best written.
The plot was just weaker then the rest and the characters too dumb. I still enjoyed the book.
I would recommend this series to everyone.
I really like the child. She is extremely funny.
The when they were bathing the baby.
Yes, I listened to all of the books in this series in one sitting.
yes, part of a good series.
She's good at British and Scottish accents and different voices for the wide range of characters.
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!
Intrigue sexy exciting
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.
She, as always, did a wonderful job!
Only a special woman can make the immortal, mortal. Only Alexia, has those powers and still prefers to use her parasol.
I love this series! The steampunk, the monsters, the characters, the locations. All of it is perfect!
I loved how she described how many woman feels about her love life. I love how she used monsters.
*Spoiler* The wedding scene! Its a mix of old, new, borrowed, and vampire!
Always looking for a great Fantasy Series... Please do make suggestions...
Alright Steam Punk? I did not know what this was before I read the Parasol Protectorate Series, guess I still really dont exactly know, but loved every minute of this series... Great Character developement and story progression.
If you like strong heroines this is a must listen/read series. Great Series Gail hurry up with the next book!!!!!!
