Heartless (Parasol Protectorate #4) by Gail Carriger

Heartless  (Parasol Protectorate #4) by Gail Carriger
This is an adult steampunk novel (Rated NC-17)
(Four Soulless Hearts)

Book Summary
Lady Alexia Maccon, soulless, is at it again, only this time the trouble is not her fault. When a mad ghost threatens the queen, Alexia is on the case, following a trail that leads her deep into her husband's past. Top that off with a sister who has joined the suffragette movement (shocking!), Madame Lefoux's latest mechanical invention, and a plague of zombie porcupines and Alexia barely has time to remember she happens to be eight months pregnant.

Will Alexia manage to determine who is trying to kill Queen Victoria before it is too late? Is it the vampires again or is there a traitor lurking about in wolf's clothing? And what, exactly, has taken up residence in Lord Akeldama's second best closet?

My Review

We get a lot of answers in this installment of the book. And oh were they shocking in some cases. But then again, not. I actually suspected some things but somehow thought that maybe I was hoping too much.

Alexia is solving a mystery yet again. And if memory serves, we don’t get as much interaction with Conall as I would have liked. But it’s been a while. I can’t believe I forgot to do a review on this one. However, I did enjoy and immediately move on to the next in the series. When I like a series and all the books are available, I try to move forward and soak up all the goodness.
If you haven’t read this series, not only is it well written, there are some really great laugh out loud moments that will really hook you in. Somehow this author is able to capture the seriousness of a moment and lighten the mood too when necessary. My hats off.

Audio Review
Emily Gray is just outstanding. She’s perfect for this story as this story seemed like it was written for her. I look forward to listening to more of her narration. 

My book boyfriend is Conall. (artistic view lol)
