In summary, Heartless is a really fun, well-written book that will keep you entertained and turning those pages. It was cute at first, and then I got tired of reading about it. I am going onto book 5 asap and just have to say this was by far the best in the series to date and I loved it!!!! Something else which really endears the series to me is the authors attention to her series. View all 20 comments. I love all the characters! Novels by Gail Carriger.

She does what she wants whether he thinks it’s a good idea or not which he usually doesn’t , and almost always relies on herself, her wits or her parasol to get her out of a sticky situation. I had no idea about those two! Cancel reply Enter your comment here Carriger still has a few plot twists left in her reticule and yes I continue to enjoy those twists and how they will impact the overall s 3. Honestly, her website made me that much more excited about the upcoming books and really want to read the series in general…. I don’t know if I trust him enough for that.

This page was last edited on 9 Septemberat Blending steampunk with urban fantasyHeartless is set in an alternate history version of Victorian era Britain where vampires and werewolfs are welcomed as members of society, often in the upper class. I think that goes a long way…. Well, my little plum pastries, what larks we have had! Review originally posted here. Vast quantities of absurd silliness. Notify me of new posts via email. Only the 5th book takes place 2 or heaetless years later, so that doesn’t make sense either.


Yes, we got it the first couple of times that Alexia is not, as a preternatural, a motherly material. Emily Gray does a wonderful job at narrating, and really this book is worth getting simply for her narration.

Review: Heartless (Parasol Protectorate #4) by Gail Carriger

At any rate, the book and the series are great. I love the way Gail Carriger writes.

Heartless (The Parasol Protectorate 4) by Gail Carriger : Book Review

Though personally my two favorites in the series were Soulless of course and Changeless. Dare I say that it was more fun to read than a couple of the previous books in the series?

Speaking of characters, my number 1 favorite side character belongs to this very fascinating world created by Carriger – Lord Akeldama.

Alexia is once again stuck in the middle of supernatural politics all set against an industrious Victorian London backdrop…. Lord Akeldama has concocted a plan to appease the vampires which will hopefully put a stop to the attempts on her life and that of her unborn child. And I simply love the way all her characters talk, all proper and formal. I recieved an advance copy of this book.

Alexia finds hearltess more about her father and some other characters too. So are Conall and Alexia, and no one has a problem with them. Novels by Gail Carriger. To find out more, including how to control cookies, see here: As are other items of clothing.

I am currently reading book 5 and loving that one too, and I have heartelss doubt that Miss Carriger will be a firm favourite of mine for a long time: Look, if you’ve made it to book four of this series, you know what you’re in for. Metaphors and similes, while individually witty, are used in such abundance as to grow tiresome.

Review: Heartless (Parasol Protectorate #4) by Gail Carriger – The Lit Bitch

This book did have humor – varriger not as much as previous books or as expected. A supernatural threat that’s not really a threat, but mostly just an excuse for us to hang out with these characters for four hundred pages. If the latter part of the book was the meal, then the first half was that bit of parsley that you enjoy looking at but don’t really need.

Heartless by Gail Carriger – March. Her rushing to the aid of Countess Nadasdy who has tried to get Alexia killed on countless occasions felt especially unrealistic.

We are then quickly thrown into an enticing mix of plot strands involving all the best characters from the previous books, such as mysterious Madame Lefoux, fabulous Lord Akeldama and the always delightful Heaftless Lyall.

Carriegr I can say is that I did like it. They don’t seem to have any redeeming qualities From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. I never liked this character.
