REVIEW: CHANGELESS by Gail Carriger



 



STATS:

FORMAT: E-BOOK
PUBLISHER: ORBIT
BOOK 2


In this second adventure we find Alexia embarking on her greatest adventure yet: Marriage! As Lady Maccon she is not only lucky enough to be in a Love Match she also has an interesting secret job for the Queen. Alecia's natural practicality serves her well in a household bristling with werewolves including a returning regiment of soldiers literally camping on her door. Add a strange event that is removing the supernatural abilities of everyone in England and Alexia has a lot o her very capable soldiers.

Then she awakens to find her husband has abruptly left for Scotland! So many wonderful elements in this story firmly nestled in the Victorian English tradition and protocol. There are very few books that completely envelop me and Gail's are one of them. Her research and attention to detail paired with her wonderful comedic sense and bits of passionate romance make this a  stellar read.

It's also a joy to see such well developed female characters.Have I mentioned the humor yet? Alexia's deadpan observations and comments are rife with laugh out loud moments and the addition of her best friend Ivy and her sister Felicity provide ample comedic relief.

Action, romance and a climactic finale with a bittersweet ending. Trust me you are going to want book three handy after this one.
