Timeless~ Gail Carriger
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?
Without giving too much of this book away, can I just say that I love, love, love this series and I love Gail Carriger’s style of writing. She paints images and pictures in your mind and makes you easily feel as if you were there, inside her stories right along with Alexia and Ivy and all her characters.
And this book, I would have to say is by far one of my favorites from the series. It took me a whole of probably three days to finish it. And I highly recommend it. Along with her other books. Especially for those who enjoy reading Steampunk and Victorian novels.
