    The last book in this very hilarious series was somewhat of a let down There s many moments of Gail s trademark humor that made these books wonderful reads Something was lacking I found the plot dull and the scene with Buffy back in London a big bore But I do love Alexia and Conall s interactions and their daughter Prudence is adorable Without Prudence, this would have been DOA.I may grade it higher when I hadtime to digest what I read.

    3.5 starsOh, I should have listened to this entire series on audio It s a completely different experience With her great accents and excellent characterization, Emily Gray breathed life into a series that very much needed it in its last installment She s done such an amazing job that I ll purposely seek out other audiobooks narrated by her, regardless of the genre, and enjoy them while driving to work and back Of all the narrators I ve come across so far, she and Holter Graham are by far my 3.5 starsOh, I should have listened to this entire series on audio It s a completely different experience With her great accents and excellent characterization, Emily Gray breathed life into a series that very much needed it in its last installment She s done such an amazing job that I ll purposely seek out other audiobooks narrated by her, regardless of the genre, and enjoy them while driving to work and back Of all the narrators I ve come across so far, she and Holter Graham are by far my favorites.Unfortunately, Gail Carriger doesn t deserve such praise Timeless is essentially plotless, and what little excitement there is pales in comparison to previous books Everything I used to love about this series is gone even the humor isn t what it used to be The Parasol Protectorate simply lost its charm It s a good thing Carriger decided to end the series when she did this is where we would have parted ways anyway By making Timeless the last book, she allowed me to say my goodbyes with a smile and a little bit of nostalgia, instead of the bitter taste so many authors left me with Timeless picks up two years after the end of Heartless Alexia s daughter Prudence is an extraordinary child and she s keeping her biological parents and her adoptive father, Lord Akeldama, very busy indeed She s even managed to attract the attention of Queen Matakara, vampire Queen of the Alexandria Hive, the oldest supernatural in the world Alexia, Prudence and their numerous entourage travel to Egypt to indulge Matakara, and hopefully, to uncover Alessandro Tarabotti s plans for the supernaturals Meanwhile, Biffy and Professor Lyall investigate the murder of a Beta, but they somehow spendtime flirting with each other than actually investigating The budding romance between these two was my favorite part of this book I loved seeing a different side of Lyall the reserved professor is surprisingly passionate under the surface, much to my and Biffy s delight I never gossip I observe And then relay my observations to practically everyone. After many adventures and several misunderstandings, the relationship between Lord and Lady Maccon is finally steady and calm, but never boring After all, neither of them is very conventional and Lady Maccon becomes rather restless if she isn t involved in at least three different conspiracies and secret societies at any given time But the tenderness she shows her darling husband, and his complete and utter adoration for her turned this book into a satisfying conclusion, despite its many flaws You know I have to mention some of those flaws, right I ll try to make it quick, like pulling off a band aid The most important thing is that I wantedMany questions were left unanswered and I m still unclear on quite a few things The humor oh, the humor I used to adore Lord Akeldama and his many fashion experiments, but he, too, became tiresome after a while Much like the series, he just lost his shine In the end, I will go back to the beginning if you re considering reading this book, do yourselves a favor and get it on audio Emily Gray made everything so muchinteresting As for the rest, this is one of those times when saying goodbye isn t hard I m sure Gail Carriger has a lotto offer, but in a different series and with a new set of characters

    So, another series is over and, I m afraid to say, for me the ending was just meh Unfortunately, this appears to be the fate of so many series these days The Soookie Stackhouse, Georgina Kincaid and Dante Valentine books all immediately spring to mind Like the first two of these three, the main problem with the Parasol Protectorate series, I think, is that there just was not enough plot for the five books and the series went on for longer than the author is convincingly able to sustain the st So, another series is over and, I m afraid to say, for me the ending was just meh Unfortunately, this appears to be the fate of so many series these days The Soookie Stackhouse, Georgina Kincaid and Dante Valentine books all immediately spring to mind Like the first two of these three, the main problem with the Parasol Protectorate series, I think, is that there just was not enough plot for the five books and the series went on for longer than the author is convincingly able to sustain the storyline.This last instalment takes place two years after the ending of the previous book with Lord and Lady Maccon still residing in Lord Akeldama s closet The latter is the legal guardian to Prudence, the infant inconvenience who is now a toddler causing a lot of havoc and keeping Lord Akeldama, all his drones and the majority of the Woolsey werewolf clan on their toes That is, until Alexia receives a summons from Matakara, Queen of the Alexandria hive and the oldest living vampire and the Maccons, along with the Tunstells and their troupe whom they take along as cover, set out for Egypt where, inevitably, they encounter adversity, mystery and adventure, leading to the series being very neatly wrapped up and tied up with a bow a very oversize one with pink and turquoise stripes, to fit in with the general atmosphere.Where with the previous book I was a teensy bit bored, with this one, I was a lot bored In fact all of the first half of this book was just filler, with the author re visiting some of thememorable places and characters from the previous books the hat shop now run by Biffy, the Woolsey Hive with notable appearances from Countess Nadasdy and Mabel Dair , the fleeting return of Felicity Loontwill in a flurry of spite, the sudden reappearance of Lady Kingair in the nude in certain placess, no less and a single appearance of Guatve Trouve to deliver a replacement parasol to name but a few.The charm and humour of the earlier books has fizzled to a point where a lot of it read like bad panto tipping over into complete absurdity at several points yes, I am talking about the hideous trouser ripping episode involving Tunstell and the overabundance of silly names Most of the book could have been illustrated with images like these image error Not a great visual backdrop.After the leasurly self indulgent intro, the actual story and the wrap up were far too rushed and felt desperate and emotionally manipulative view spoiler Two major caracters die or are on the point of dying only to be miraculously rescued a few pages later, for crying out loud hide spoiler But the most disappointing thing of all, is that the main mysteries of the books the Order of the Brass Octopus, the nature of the soulless soulstealers what why how are they etc remain unanswered pretty much completely, unless you count the fact that Alexia s abilities are discovered to be cancelled out when she is submerged in water I am not even going to mark it as a spoiler because, really, after five books, that is what we find out.Having said that, there were a few things that I liked which saved this from being a one star disaster While I still feel that too many pages were dedicated to it, I did like the relationship between Biffy and Lyall It was nice to have a homosexual relationship which was genuinely sweet and not reduced to riduculousness I admire the fact that Alexia stays human and the elegant solution introduced by Carriger to deal with Connall s immortality and that Alexia never descends to the depth of Bella s vanity to obsess about her aging But the thing I like most of all is the fact that, unlike in the vast majority of urban fantasy and PNR, Alexia remains very much her own person, with her own separate interests, friends and responsibilities and does not immediately turn into a woman sized appendage of her virile sexy werewolf of a husband, entirely subsumed into his world, beliefs and persona I can respect that And I still love certain characters enough Madame Lefoux and Lord Akeldama please make your way onto the stage to be content to simply watch them I almost feel nostalgic already Almost

    Gonna keep this short because I feel like I ve already said most of what I want to say about this series in the previous four reviews I ve written for it It s fluffy It s fun It s got benevolent supernatural creatures in it who faff around being supernatural and adorable It s got puns It s got dirigibles It s got smoochies And this one has pyramids and mummies in it If you liked the first four books, you will probably like this one, too, although the ending was a bit of a shocker and I h Gonna keep this short because I feel like I ve already said most of what I want to say about this series in the previous four reviews I ve written for it It s fluffy It s fun It s got benevolent supernatural creatures in it who faff around being supernatural and adorable It s got puns It s got dirigibles It s got smoochies And this one has pyramids and mummies in it If you liked the first four books, you will probably like this one, too, although the ending was a bit of a shocker and I had to think on it a couple of days before deciding on a rating.The focus here is the characters, so while there is arguably a plot instigated by the disappearance murder of the Kingair werewolf pack s beta on a trip to Egypt, and a request from the oldest living vampire queen to meet Alexia and Lord Maccon s two year old daughter, Prudence, who has the ability to temporarily steal the powers of supernatural creatures , you re really showing up to watch them do their thing, no matter the setting.I was particularly satisfied with the endings for Alexia and Lord Maccon which resolves an issue I d been wondering about since book one and for dear Biffy, who once wanted to be a vampire, but ended up being stuck as a werewolf instead Biffy ended up being my favorite part of this series, which I did not see coming after book one which still remains my favorite.I m gonna take a bit of a Carriger break, and then it s on to her YA series, and the two so far books that follow a grown up Prudence

    I had no idea I was reading the last book in the series until I got to the end of it What a surprise I thought Alexia and Connal had a lotto give Still I suppose Prudence will carry on in the Custard Protocol.Timeless was a fun read Floote turned out to have hidden depths and there was a big surprise for Biffy too There were new romances, new vampires and an amazingly cute baby Lots of entertainment altogether, as usual for this series.I have enjoyed all of the Parasol Protectorate a I had no idea I was reading the last book in the series until I got to the end of it What a surprise I thought Alexia and Connal had a lotto give Still I suppose Prudence will carry on in the Custard Protocol.Timeless was a fun read Floote turned out to have hidden depths and there was a big surprise for Biffy too There were new romances, new vampires and an amazingly cute baby Lots of entertainment altogether, as usual for this series.I have enjoyed all of the Parasol Protectorate and look forward to readingof this author s books
