Book Review: Changeless by Gail Carriger

Changeless (The Parasol Protectorate, Book 2) by Gail Carriger
  • Mass Market Paperback: 400 pages
  • Publisher: Orbit; 1 edition (April 1, 2010)
Amazon Description:

Alexia Tarabotti, the Lady Woolsey, 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 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.
***************************

Quite frankly I was disappointed with this book. It was pretty bland and it took me days to slog through it because it just did not hold my attention. Alexia is still most definitely an interesting character in Changeless but the problem is that the mystery was just blah and mostly predictable. That being said, the very last bit of the book was intriguing enough that now I feel that I have to read the third book in the series. I can only hope that it is much better than Changeless.

2.5/5
