Overview

Timeless (Parasol Protectorate Series #5) by Gail Carriger

Alexia Tarabotti, Lady Maccon, has settled into domestic bliss. Of course, being Alexia, such bliss involves integrating werewolves into London High society, living in a vampire's second best closet, and coping with a precocious toddler who is prone to turning supernatural willy-nilly. Even Ivy Tunstell's acting troupe's latest play, disastrous to say the least, cannot put a damper on Alexia's enjoyment of her new London lifestyle.

Until, that is, she receives a summons from Alexandria that cannot be ignored. With husband, child, and Tunstells in tow, Alexia boards a steamer to cross the Mediterranean. But Egypt may hold more mysteries than even the indomitable Lady Maccon can handle. What does the vampire Queen of the Alexandria Hive really want from her? Why is the God-Breaker Plague suddenly expanding? And how has Ivy Tunstell suddenly become the most popular actress in all the British Empire?

About the Author

New York Times bestselling author Gail Carriger writes to cope with being raised in obscurity by an expatriate Brit and an incurable curmudgeon. She escaped small town life and inadvertently acquired several degrees in Higher Learning. Ms. Carriger then traveled the historic cities of Europe, subsisting entirely on biscuits secreted in her handbag. She resides in the Colonies, surrounded by fantastic shoes, where she insists on tea imported from London.

The Parasol Protectorate books are: Soulless, Changeless, Blameless, Heartless, and Timeless. Soulless won the ALA's Alex Award. A manga adaptation released in Spring 2012 and a young adult series set in the same universe -- the Finishing School series -- launched in Spring 2013. Gail is soon to begin writing a new adult series, The Parasol Protectorate Abroad (2015).

Another delightful installment of one of my all time favorite series and authors. I read 3-4 books a week in many different genres. Gail Carriger consistently get a five star rating from me - which I do not give out lightly! It is rare that an author can crack me up - but I always have laugh-out-loud moments with the Parasol Protectorate.

Spoilers ahead for the Parasol Protectorate series. I'm going to miss this series. Honestly, I could praise the plot of this story -- I had some points figured out, and some I didn't -- and I could praise the continuation of the world building and the beautiful plot continuity itself. But what's the point? The reason that I have always loved this series and the reason I will always love this series is because its characters. Alexia Tarabotti is everything I want to be as I get older - smart and sassy and demanding and kind and clever and a large fan of pastries. Lord Maccon is hot and angry and kind and loving and angry and a werewolf and immortal and gorgeous and flawed and beautiful. Oh, and Biffy! Dear, dear Biffy! I was not expecting you to be so important, but oh, you were! And then your plot was beautiful and unexpected and I was so very PROUD! (Which, if you note, is a silly emotion for a character that you didn't write and had no attachment to prior to this book, but still. Perhaps it was pack pride?) Akeldama is as hilarious and intelligent as always, and Madame Lefoux is always a tricky and interesting character to read about. Prudence was perfection in the form of a two-year-old. Everything she said had me giggling or wincing on behalf of those in the room with her. Who would have thunk a two year old would be such a great character!? But that's Carriger for you. That woman could rewrite the phone book and I would read it. Her characters are always multidimensional and interesting and I've fallen in love with all of the -- even the villains, to an extent. They're just... ugh. So good. And for the record? Lord Maccon and Alexia will always be my OTP (one true pairing, for those of you not familiar with fandom terms) above every other pairing. I've never met a couple I've loved so much.

I love this series but this book had some twists and turns that I felt forced the end of the series instead of gently guiding you there. It feels more like she needed to give the series a finite ending but didn't quite plan on how to do it until she had written half the book which was really sad because the rest of the series was amazing.

Carriger ably wraps up her Parasol Protectorate series in this final volume. It was neat to see how she worked the God-Breaker Plague and Alexia's father into the story, as well as the evolution of Biffy's character. Looking forward to the adventures of Prudence! -- lyradora

I really enjoyed this whole series. The writing was at a higher level than sixth grade, which I appreciate. It was witty, pithy, and generally amusing.

This book caught me up right in the beginning. It was very well written and the characters were just perfect! When I finished the first I quickly proceeded to the second book and so on, finishing the whole series in a week to my utter dismay! I absolutely fell in love with all the characters and was quite sad the series ended. Overall this book is a grrat start to a fantastic adventure into steampunk/fantasy culture
