Book Review: Changeless

Series: The Parasol Protectorate (Book #2)
Author: Gail Carriger
Published: 2010

Summary: Alexia Tarabotti, now Lady Maccon, awakens in the wee hours of the mid-afternoon 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. Even when her investigations take her into the backwaters of ugly waistcoats, Scotland, she is prepared: upending werewolf pack dynamics as only a soulless can.

She might even find time to track down her wayward husband, if she feels like it.

My Thoughts: Before reading Changeless I was nervous about not liking it as much as Soulless. Because, let's face it, the flirting and teasing before the main characters actually get each other, are more fun to read about than when they are actually in a relationship (and married!) Twilight was funnier before Bella and Edward got married and Jacob still had a shot, right?

Anyway, Alexia is still a feisty character! She's independent, modern and very curious, and she's not one to sit around when there is a mystery to solve!

I liked Changeless storyline, but I thought the pace was a bit slow at times. And the book didn't quite live up to my expectations.

Rating: 3.5 of 5
