Publisher's Summary

Quitting her husband's house and moving back in with her horrible family, Lady Maccon becomes the scandal of the London season.

Queen Victoria dismisses her from the Shadow Council, and the only person who can explain anything, Lord Akeldama, unexpectedly leaves town. To top it all off, Alexia is attacked by homicidal mechanical ladybugs, indicating, as only ladybugs can, the fact that all of London's vampires are now very much interested in seeing Alexia quite thoroughly dead.

While Lord Maccon elects to get progressively more inebriated and Professor Lyall desperately tries to hold the Woolsey werewolf pack together, Alexia flees England for Italy in search of the mysterious Templars. Only they know enough about the preternatural to explain her increasingly inconvenient condition, but they may be worse than the vampires - and they're armed with pesto.

Blameless is the third book of the Parasol Protectorate series: a comedy of manners set in Victorian London, full of werewolves, vampires, dirigibles, and tea drinking.

Recording oddities

This is the third book in the series, and the first that has overly extended pauses at some scene and chapter breaks. Some were long enough that I had to look to make sure my device hadn’t suddenly stopped playing! I don’t know whether it’s a narrator or production glitch, but it would be really nice if the excess “dead air” was removed.

Alexia mayhem on the road

Alexia finds herself the Pariah of society when Lord Maccon refuses to believe that he is the father of her child and they part. She is then betrayed by her sister Felicity who makes her news public and has Alexia ejected from the family home. When she accepts Lord Akeldama’s offer to stay with him, she finds he has left town. Then the attempts on her life begin in earnest.
Alexia, Lefoux, & Floote travel to Italy to try to obtain information from the Templars regarding her condition, and the Great Chase begins. When Maccon surfaces from his shock and intoxication, has a lot to make up for.
Gray does a good job of narration.

Great silly fun

Not Booker prize material, but a satisfying, silly distraction from an overburdened life. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

Carry on our wayward SOULLESS one(spoiler alert)

Where does Blameless rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

One of the fantastic stories I have heard by Gail Carriger. I enjoyed the storyline very much!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Blameless?

Connall's realization of his stupidity and his very public apology!

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

I have with the previous two books in the series also read by Emily Gray. I enjoy her narration and her ability to make different voices and accents! She' s great!

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

I laughed and blushed quite a bit!

Any additional comments?

Excellent story by an excellent author! Love this series!

Why the eternity of LONG pauses?

Don't get me wrong, I loved this book as much as the previous ones, but who directed this? There were these long pauses in the middle of scenes, with no apparent reason!!!! There were some reasons, change of scene, but there was no need for these LONG silences. All I can figure is they needed a longer timed book to charge more for it. I am not going to listen to this one again, not even to prove the book is over an hour shorter in story time and just padded to make it seem it is 11 hours. Poor production and it is bad it reflects back on a good story and performance.

Excellent

Blameless is book 3 in the Parasol Protectorate series. I really didn't like what happened at the end of book 2, so I wasn't sure if I was going to like book 3. I ended up liking it quite a bit. I think the separation was done well and resolved in a reasonable time-frame. There was a lot of action in this book and it kept me entertained from beginning to end. I appreciated the witty humor as well. The narration was really good. My favorite of the narrator's voices is her voice for Lord Conall Maccon. I am looking forward to listening to book 4.

Mom Kat Reads

I greatly enjoyed listening to this audiobook. as with the previous two in the series, the narrator has done a fantastic job with keeping each of the characters' voices seperate and distinct, allowing the listener to simply sit back and enjoy the story without confusion or difficulty.

The story itself was well told & entertaining, with quite a few moments that made me either want to laugh at the actions taking place, or scold the characters for those same actions.

All in all, I foubd this to be avery enjoyable audiobook & look forward to listening tp the next one in the series.

Delightful!

There are so many characters that I get confused and back up the story to replay. But the story and characters are absolutely wonderful. The humor reminds me of British comedies I grew up with. I love everything about this story.
