Timeless: The Parasol Protectorate, the Fifth | [Gail Carriger]

Timeless: The Parasol Protectorate, the Fifth

Alexia Tarabotti, Lady Maccon, has settled into domestic bliss. Of course, being Alexia, such bliss involves integrating werewolves into London High society, living in a vampire's second best closet, and coping with a precocious toddler who is prone to turning supernatural willy-nilly. Even Ivy Tunstell's acting troupe's latest play, disastrous to say the least, cannot put a damper on Alexia's enjoyment of her new London lifestyle.

Publisher's Summary

Alexia Tarabotti, Lady Maccon, has settled into domestic bliss. Of course, being Alexia, such bliss involves integrating werewolves into London High society, living in a vampire's second best closet, and coping with a precocious toddler who is prone to turning supernatural willy-nilly. Even Ivy Tunstell's acting troupe's latest play, disastrous to say the least, cannot put a damper on Alexia's enjoyment of her new London lifestyle.

Until, that is, she receives a summons from Alexandria that cannot be ignored. With husband, child, and Tunstells in tow, Alexia boards a steamer to cross the Mediterranean. But Egypt may hold more mysteries than even the indomitable Lady Maccon can handle. What does the vampire Queen of the Alexandria Hive really want from her? Why is the God-Breaker Plague suddenly expanding? And how has Ivy Tunstell suddenly become the most popular actress in all the British Empire?

    "Silly but really fun"
    Where does Timeless rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top 1/4


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Lady Maccon. She was the main character that kept everything together and moving.


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

    The voices! She has an amazing ability to give each character their own voice.


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

    When Lord Maccon fell out of the balloon after being shot.


    Any additional comments?

    By the 5th book Carriger has really developed the characters into distinct people. I hope she comes up with another idea for these or other characters from The Parasol Protectorate. It felt like the ending was rushed though.

    "Made my day!"
    What did you love best about Timeless?

    Gail Carriger writes a wonder series that I keep listening to and reading over and over again. Her characters are well rounded and highly entertaining.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I especially loved the scene when Prudence runs around the streets of London in chapter 2.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It is a great novel with a heart warming love story and when you are uncertain of Connell's fate I bawled my eyes out. I almost stopped listening because I was mad that Gail could kill off a main character.


    Any additional comments?

    Emily Gray does an excellent job reading all of these books. She has a wide range of pitches and accents that give the characters a depth that can't be achieved from reading the books alone.

    I have to save my sensitive eyes for thesis-writing, so audiobooks are how I keep up with my favourite authors and have fun.

    "Just...Awesome."

    This installment of the Parasol Protectorate is, I think, the best - and that's saying something! I didn't think Carriger could top the last four books in the series, but this one is absolutely awesome - it had me laughing and crying and laughing again. Mostly laughing. A definite must-listen!!!

    I've heard this is the last book Carriger will write starring Alexia, but I've also heard that Carriger may write a series featuring Alexia's daughter, Prudence, and this seems likely given a few plot developments.

    Visit Carriger's site for extras like interviews with Alexia, Lord Maccon, and our favourite fashionable vampire.
