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?

Great ending to the series!

I didn't think I could be happy with any ending to this series, as I enjoyed the characters so much; but Ms. Carriger is able to tie things up and make one feel good about the characters' future.

oh no....I have to wait til 2013 for the NEXT BOOK

Would you consider the audio edition of Timeless to be better than the print version?

I am in love with these books and the wonderful plays on words, the silliness, the adventures of a strong female character. I got lost in each book and now, having reached the end of what is available, wait with baited breath for the next and the others that follow. Ihope the author never tires of stories or of this series and I truly hope the narrator stays with the series. She is PRICELESS. Her intonations and accents are perfect and precious!

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

Emily Gray is now my favourite actress for audible books. I love how she brings the characters to life, each their very own and special accent or tone. She maintains consistency throughout the series and I truly appreciate that.

I really love this series!

What did you love best about Timeless?

The development of characters from the previous novels and the combination of genres, there's romance, action, mystery and humour.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Of course Alexia is fabulous, but there is such a well-balanced ensemble of characters that it really is too hard to pick.

Which scene was your favorite?

The fight scenes in the the Alexandria hive, or any with descriptions of Egypt.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Something witty, I'm sure!

Any additional comments?

I'd love to see the earlier novels in this series recorded as audiobooks. I wouldn't recommend listening to them out of order.

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.
