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.

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?!

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.

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!

Only one complaint

Why does Ivey have to be SO stupid and ditzy? I spent most of this book wanting to strangle her.
