Blameless (Parasol Protectorate #3) by Gail Carriger
Publication: September 2010
Page Count: 355
Genres: Historical Paranormal
MY RATING: ★★★★
Quitting her husband’s house and moving back in with her horrible family, Lady Maccon becomes the scandal of the London season.
Queen Victoria dismisses her from the Shadow Council, and the only person who can explain anything, Lord Akeldama, unexpectedly leaves town. To top it all off, Alexia is attacked by homicidal mechanical ladybugs, indicating, as only ladybugs can, the fact that all of London’s vampires are now very much interested in seeing Alexia quite thoroughly dead.
While Lord Maccon elects to get progressively more inebriated and Professor Lyall desperately tries to hold the Woolsey werewolf pack together, Alexia flees England for Italy in search of the mysterious Templars. Only they know enough about the preternatural to explain her increasingly inconvenient condition, but they may be worse than the vampires — and they’re armed with pesto.
MY REVIEWS OF OTHER BOOKS IN THE PARASOL!UNIVERSE
MY FAVOURITE QUOTES
“I have died and gone to the land of bad novels.”
“His eyes are peculiar. There is nothing in them, like an eclair without the cream filling. It’s wrong, lack of cream.”
“One should do what one is best at on as large a scale as possible.”
“It had taken her a good deal of time before she believed that she was worth all that fierce affection he lavished upon her. To have it stolen away unjustly was that much more cruel.”
