Changeless reached #20 on the New York Times Mass Market Paperback bestseller list on April 3, It was the first of Gail Carriger’s books to hit the list. Changeless is the second installment in the delightful historical fantasy Parosol Protectorate series by Gail Carriger. If you prefer to be unspoiled I suggest skipping this review. Dear Ms. Carriger: Changeless starts of slow and ends with a big cliffhanger.

I recently read and reviewed the first book Soulless in this trilogy and thoroughly enjoyed it. She is thought a danger to other supernaturals, but dhangeless weak.
I’ve heard an hour so far and am enjoying it. Would also like to take a moment to note that this is the second time I’ve had to chnageless this review. Maybe it would chanyeless been easier to ignore if she hadn’t had such a huge part in the book. The dialogue and banter popped and the situations they found themselves in were so entertaining! Ivy was seen in this book, but I’ll get into that shortly Alexia Tarabotti, now the Lady Woolsey carries a pimped up parasol that doubles as a weapon.
The humor this time fell flat for me. One important thing I noticed underneath all the action and drama is that being an eccentric and an oddball is something to be proud of. The romantic shenanigans she gets into are not cute and I cannot stand this woman. The Good Charm and wit abound, as usual. I’m just gxil to say what others chngeless already–there is a cliffhanger with this one, so make sure you’ve got Blameless on hand before reading it.
I was so looking forward to having even more page time with them together because of they got married. So, cue lots of dreadful weather, awful men in equally awful kilts and draughty castles and big houses. Carrier creates a cozy mood infected with clever that kept me smiling pretty consistently.
A mystery and a journey with two companions that made it more interesting. Tunstell, her snarky half-sister Felicity, and her best friend Ivy. More varieties of kudos for Gail below, but I wanted to bestow credit for this, as it’s an area where too many stories like this fall flat. I love the steampunk Victorian age setting.

Now–as for C I’m so upset right now, I just want to cry for Alexia. If you were a fan of Soulless, you will find Changeless just as engaging. I don’t believe he would neverbut we haven’t been presented with any evidence previously to this that he could ever act like this, so.
I’ll say naught but that you really ought to have Blameless on hand when you finish this. So even when her investigations take her to Scotland, the backwater of ugly waistcoats, she is prepared: I saw the lesbian twist coming.
I had fun trying to figure out what was going on with her sexuality. But the book cannot hinge on her alone. I wish I would have quit at book one so I could have been left with that warm happy feeling with no taint.
I have to say that I’m not that big of fan of Ivy Changelesz anymore, she’s just not rooted in reality enough for me to be able to handle her in such large doses. Love Conall and Alexia together, arguing but not really arguing, just playful back and forth, interspersed with passion.
And I also find it hard to write about the plot without giving something away, so many things are intertwined that I’d worry I’d spoil something. The story kept me riveted.
The former twenty-six year old spinster is the newly married wife of three months to Lord Conall Maccon, the Woolsey Alpha werewolf. Madame Lefoux is just as enjoyable as Lord Akeldama, but without all the italics.
Other books in the series. I have to admit that the end just about crushed me. She caarriger an issue or two to try and resolve in this book. She wasn’t just a little dumb either.
With all the different fashions and gadgets and things it’d be so cool to have art to go with it.
And judging by the conversation between husband and wife, their mutual physical attraction is alive and well. She is published in many languages and has over a dozen NYT bestsellers.

Although if next book is not as good or better, I’ll probably be extremely disappointed. I won’t be asking that question again when it comes to Gail Carriger’s books. The feisty and fiery Alexia had left a bit of a lasting impression on me. It seemed blatant, but then I kept getting stray comments throwing me off the trail and making me think that something else entirely was going on.
Chaneless was also pleased to see that Ivy Hisselpenny and her atrocious hats have a bigger part in this novel. Changeless was another 3. His sudden disappearance entangles her with a regiment of supernatural soldiers, a group of exorcised ghostsand Queen Victoria herself.
I really wish I hadn’t bought that third book
