Publisher's Summary

Alexia Maccon, the Lady Woolsey, awakens in the wee hours of the midafternoon to find her husband, who should be decently asleep like any normal werewolf, yelling at the top of his lungs. Then he disappears, leaving her to deal with a regiment of supernatural soldiers encamped on her doorstep, a plethora of exorcised ghosts, and an angry Queen Victoria.

But Alexia is armed with her trusty parasol, the latest fashions, and an arsenal of biting civility. So even when her investigations take her to Scotland, the backwater of ugly waistcoats, she is prepared, upending werewolf pack dynamics as only the soulless can. She might even find time to track down her wayward husband, if she feels like it.

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

A step down from Soulless but still fun

I loved Soulless (good female characters! werewolf sex! prudish Victorian descriptions of werewolf sex!) and this was a step down. There's not much meat on these bones, and I didn't feel terribly invested in the outcome of the mystery. Everything's still pretty fun though. I like Alexia, I like Maccon, and there's some good banter along the way. The supporting characters are one or two note: Felicity (bad), Ivy (dumb, dumb hats), and Madame Lefoux (gay inventor). But really, for steampunk Victorian romance, still enjoyed it.

The end really soured me though. The twist is a huge cliche and Maccon's reaction to it is totally uncharacteristic. It didn't spring from any organic conflict in the story or between the characters, it was clearly just shoehorned in as a (inexpert) romcom plot device to divide the leads before book 3. This isn't super surprising (book one read like a bit of a TV pilot, although an excellent one), but the end of this just left me shrugging.

Stellar narration!

Fun with Dirigibles

I thought the second book was quite fun and I can’t wait for the 3rd. Part mystery, part romcom, part comedy of errors. The addition of new characters and side stories might have made it a little soapy, but that’s also what made it so great! Who doesn’t love a good soap opera?!

Stellar Second Installment

This series is just fantastic fun! This second installment sees new characters, new accessories, and new adventures--including dirigible travel! The end of this book had me immediately wanting to read the third as I zoomed through this delightful series!

Good, but clearly a middle chapter

For the second of a five part story, its okay. The mystery starts off strong, then flops untill the end.

Ivy gets annoying

The book is good, and for the most part the narration is good, but an overwrought ivy gets extremely tiresome. Maybe it would have been lass annoying to read instead of listen to. The next book is much better, and ivy is pretty awesome in the last book.

best author ever!

Gail Carriger has the ability to build a unique world full of diverse, interesting characters. Each person has their own voice and characteristics. I loves them all---except for the automaton in book one. He give me the absolute creeps.
The hatmaker is a fascinating person, full of surprises. Lord Fancypants, the vampire, is amazing. His frippery combined with impeccable manners makes him a memorable beloved character (sorry, I suck at remembering names). Biffy is possibly the most endearing person in this world. Of course, Miss Tarabotti and Lord Maccoon, with their unusual relationship, make the book.
great narration. thank you

Ivy brought it down

I did not enjoy the abundance of Ivy and her hats and found it difficult to get through this book. That character grated on me.

Enjoyable

My husband and I enjoyed the 1st book, so wanted to follow-up with the next. While we enjoyed the story and most of the characters, a few aspects were predictable and at least one character i was praying for their death as they were TOO annoying. But very much enjoyed how things progressed and want to start the next book as it left a mystery yet to be answered.
