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.

I love books. but i am kind of a fiction junkie.
Well written steam punk regency romance with an interesting intricate world. Fun and well worth the credit
I can be summed up in one word. Handsome, intelligent, honest, humble, brave, exciting, fun, kind, trustworthy, sexy! All these words work.
This story is a lot of fun fluff mixed with some interesting ideas. I like this reader a lot, but I think there were more male characters than she could handle. Once I got use to the names of the characters it got better. Still, the reader did manage to capture the outlandish fun of the story.
I would definitely recommend this book to a friend, an enemy, anybody at all! This series is one of my favorites on paper and to hear it in all its superbly acted, Scottish glory was so good!
I think that it fits very well in the series and one should really start with the first book, Soulless, but I suppose you could go out of order and start with this one too... I think outside of Gail Carriger books, the tone of Changeless reminds me of a hilarious supernaturally tinged version Teresa Medieros' romances.
Overall, it's funny, it's charming, and it's got a great range of distinct character voices.
my soul hurts right now from the cliffhanger. but totally worth it! great story, great narration. I love this world. it's steam punk style really comes to life. Alexia is a great character. I love her alpha attitude. seriously going to download the next book ASAP!!!!!
Now that the characters are better developed and Alexia's sense of humor shines through, this book became extremely entertaining. i highly recommend continuing with this series. I'm happily moving on to Book 3, Blameless!
Another highly enjoyable installment of Alexia's very eventful life. Many romantic interludes are pocketed among the search for the reason behind a plague of exorcism targeting the supernatural community. Very satisfying.
I really enjoy how the series get you involved with the main characters but also the surrounding characters as well and they all interact well as the series moves along but the surrounding stories do add to the joy of the series.
I ADORE Gail Carrier, her wit and humor is so great, and refreshing. She is my favorite Steampunk author, and knocks it out of the park in every book she writes. Lets just say this is not my first time devouring my way through this series.
