Alexia Tarrabotti is back for the fourth installment! I thoroughly enjoyed this book – not surprising as I have become a keen fan of the Parasol Protectorate!
Alexia is in the final weeks of her pregnancy, and after yet another assassination attempt, a solution has been found for her predicament. The Vampires are bound and determined to exterminate Alexia’s unborn ‘infant inconvenience’ and hopefully her as well. At the same time, a plot to assassinate the Queen is uncovered with many clues leading back to the last attempt on Queen Victoria’s life, at the hands of Lord Maccon’s previous pack up in Kingair in Scotland! Gossip, politics, werewolves, vampires and mechanical octopods abound!
Can’t wait for the next instalment! (Timeless is due out in March 2012)!
