Series: The Parasol Protectorate
Book Order: Soulless* (1), Changeless* (2), Blameless (3), Heartless (4), Timeless (5) * indicates a book I have read
Changeless, the second novel in Gail Carriger's steampunk romance series begins with a strange force temporarily wiping out the powers of London's supernaturals. Amidst the clawless werewolves and fangless vampires, preternatural heroine Alexia is puzzled but determined to discover the source of the event - though some point to her as the problem. Alexia boards an airship to Scotland accompanied by her trying sister Felicity, her dear friend with a horrid fashion sense Miss Ivy Hisselpenny, Tunstall the valet turned suitor, and the enigmatic inventor Madame LaFoux.
I loved Soulless for its humor and though perhaps not as laugh out loud funny as the first, Carriger's witty style is equally present in Changeless. This one is very decidedly a "book two" in that I don't recommend reading it before the first one and it definitely leaves off with a cliffhanger for book three. Though some of the plot twists were predictable, Changeless is still highly enjoyable and an excellent entry into The Parasol Protectorate series.
Series in September reading plan.
I rarely binge read series and prefer to savor them with one book at a time and other works and authors in between. How about you? Do you read series from start to finish or break them up book at a time?
