(Book 3 in the Parasol Protectorate series)
Almost everyone has abandoned Alexia now that her “news” is public knowledge, including her husband, her family, and even the Queen. Thankfully, she’s strong enough to face almost everything on her own. Now she has to figure out how to escape the vampires hunting her, fight off mechanical ladybugs, and find out more about her condition (and maybe why the vampires want to kill her.)
What I Liked
- This is my favorite book in the series so far. I started reading it on a weekday, so I spent well over a day on the edge of my seat wondering what would happen next. I read during every break, during lunch, in my car after work, before meeting with my friends after work, and more. And when I was doing stuff (like pricing french fries or hanging out with my friends) I was lamenting the fact that I wasn’t reading. Would Alexia’s life fall back together? What answers to what mysteries was she going to reveal? Can any more things really go wrong in her life?
- We get to see more characters that were introduced in her young adult Finishing School series. So that was pretty cool.
- Last minute escapes! Cool underground laboratories! More travelling with eccentric friends! Homicidal mechanical ladybugs! Pesto!
What I Didn’t Like
- That I didn’t have the opportunity to read this all in one sitting! 😛
Seriously, go read this series! It’s so amazingly complex and interesting.
