Yeah, so I know Maeve already reviewed Timeless but I love these books so much, I’m going to gush about it anyway. I also haven’t done “Book Monday” in awhile (where I gush about books I love, for those of you who don’t know). So…here’s today’s book:
Timeless –Book #5, Parasol Protectorate
by Gail Carriger
(copy provided by Orbit)
All good things must come to an end, and Timeless is the last book Carriger’s Parasol Protectorate series. Sure, she has two new series coming out, but alas, Lord Maccon and Alexia’s story has come to an end.
I love these books – their charm, wit, humor, and ability to make me laugh out loud in undignified ways while on airplanes. Book #5 was no exception.
In this book Alexia and company travel to Egypt in an adventure that doesn’t disappoint. Prudence cracks me up, and Carriger accurate portrayal of life with a toddler (especially bathtime) had me rolling.
Though I was a tiny disappointed not to get the full Alexia origins story, this story did not disappoint overall. There was plenty of Ivy and her hats, Akeldam’s wit, Madame Lefoux’s intrigue, and the amazing love and respect shared by Lord Maccon and Alexia (which always makes me swoon).
And Biffy! I was pleasantly surprised by darling Biffy. I hope we haven’t seen the last of him.
I know we haven’t seen the last of Prudence and I look forward to reading about her in her series, Parasol Protectorate Abroad.
Have you read it? What did you think?
