    1 thought on “Changeless”

    1. Ahhhhhhhhis was just what I needed. After suffering a cerebral edema brought on by “big idea” overload from reading Macrolife: A Mobile Utopia (review to come), this breezy, charming comfort read was the perfect curative to alleviate the swelling in my brain pan. While tagged as a constituent of the paranormal romance genre (one of the few that holds little interest for me), I think this series (through the first two at least) is more aptly described as an Austenesque comedy of mannerswith g [...]

    2. FYI, intrepid readers: Do NOT read the blurbage/description for Blameless (book 3 of the series) until after you have read Changeless. It contains a major spoiler.I am in a state. Changeless has a twist of an ending that I could not possibly have considered, and it has left me bereft and confused and so distraught that I’m not sure how Miss Carriger will fix the situation. I just…ugh! I’m wide-eyed and slack-jawed with shock and still shaking my head and I think I will continue doing so un [...]

    3. *Originally read 9/13/10 - 9/15/10* *This is actually a 2 1/2 star book for me*I really can't believe how disappointing I found this book. I thought the first book, Soulless, was so fun and fresh! I'm quite amazed that this one tanked so spectacularly for me. A lot of the things that drew me into the first book were missing here. I was actually pretty bored throughout most of it. It felt incredibly tedious and drawn out. Now, the voice is still the same - which is a huge plus for me. Alexia is a [...]

    4. DNF at 60%. This was not as good as book 1, which I gave five stars. The pacing was slow and the plot was weak, in my view. I just didn't care what was causing the supernaturals to not be supernatural anymore. The werewolves couldn't shift, ghosts were getting exorcised, vampires were becoming mortal again. But it just went on and on and nothing much really happened.Maccon was gone for most of the book and then I spoiled myself since I knew I was DNFing this anyway and does something at the end [...]

    5. sure, i like candy. what's not to like? it's a sweet, brightly-hued thing to eat. but candy is not guilt-free. it is not substantial. it's not even the best dessert item out there. now chocolate, that's a dessert. chocolate can be sexy, right? when it's hot, chocolatey things get messy. on the other hand, candy is not really very sexy. it's cute - but it's too instantly disposable to be sexy. candy is for kids. now ice cream - that's a great dessert. i can spend some time with it. it is a more n [...]

    6. Original review: Need. Blameless. NOW.And here's what I thought once I got my hands on it. [Hint: "There are knees positively everywhere!" = best. line. ever.]

    7. 3.5/5 stars I didn't like this one as much as the first one unfortunately, HOWEVER I still loved Alexia and the overall story and I'm interested to see where it goes!

    8. Not as good as the first one, but still pretty great. I'm loving the way she's building the world out through new characters and concepts. I'm super mad at a certain character right now, though.It was inevitable that I wasn't going to like this one as much as the first, because I just have this thing about reading initial romances. It was enjoyable reading about Alexia and Lord Maccon's married relationship here, but it wasn't as purely *fun* as their courtship in book one. Also, the rest of the [...]

    9. Dare I say, better than the first? I do have to give fair warning that the end will make you wish it was September already and you had Blameless in your hands. But, can you really consider that a bad thing? I also have to confess that I actually woke up in the middle of the night and my first thought was of Alexia; poor poor Alexia. The ending is heartwrenching to say the least, it just made me so sad and I can't imagine how things are going to work out. But they have to work out, right? Right?! [...]

    10. I’ve just finished a book where I didn’t want to read too fast, but couldn’t stop myself even if I wanted to. There are not many books I can think of that have engaged all my senses, where I’m wrapped up in the story and overall love and hard work put into the words, where I was utterly lost in the world the author has created.Such a book that has evoking such strong feelings is Gail Carriger’s Changeless, the second book in her Parasol Protectorate featuring Alexia Maccon, The Lady Wo [...]

    11. For more reviews, gifs, Cover Snark and more, visit A Reader of FictionsTRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYED.I’ve been betrayed by this series. I finished this book last night and actually put off writing my review overnight, but I am still so enraged at the events of the ending. This is made more annoying by how fun the book was up to that point. Changeless was another 3.5 star read up until that ending, which made me drop it to a singular star. Fucking plotberg off the port bow. That ending is NOT ok [...]

    12. Enjoyed this one. Hilarious and very witty. Love Conall and Alexia together, arguing but not really arguing, just playful back and forth, interspersed with passion. These two are definitely newlyweds! A nibble here and bite there And then 90% happened. :( (view spoiler)[Why would you be so pigheaded Conall?! I expected some relationship drama, so it's not really a surprise. Still, I want to smack him upside the head!(hide spoiler)]It will be interesting to see how it all plays out in the next bo [...]

    13. these books are bad, no really they are terrible. so you ask why did I read the second? why am I currently reading the third? why did I just download the audio for the 4th? well um.t, I didn't read them I listened to them second, they are kind of like watching a train wreckird, I am morbidly fascinated by the fact that I can't for the life of me figure out if they are suppose to be scifi novels or romance novels. there is not nearly enough sex for a romance novel, and what there is is not at all [...]

    14. Continuing on with this series has been a good time. A unique urban fantasy steampunk with a suspenseful twist is a fun mash-up not to be missed. The heroine is a tartar and keeps everyone on their toesChangeless is book two in the Parasol Protectorate series. These are an ongoing cast of characters with some ongoing plot threads even if new conflicts come with each book so they are best read in order.In this installment, Alexia and Conall have been enjoying a bit of peace getting used to marria [...]

    15. I had an interesting conversation with my husband last week and I told him about this genre of writing called Steampunk. He scratched his head and I explained that there were all sorts of mechanical gadgets, usually powered by steam, usually set in Victorian England, and that there are now a lot of novels that are set in the world of Steampunk. The other day he told me that he saw a reference to Steampunk in a Tech Republic newsletter and he was so proud that he knew what it was.Changeless fits [...]

    16. I'm so upset right now, I just want to cry for Alexia. Because for goodness' sake, the poor woman has no soul! She can't cry for herself!!!Alright, I'm not going to be all spoilery. I'm just going to say what others have already--there is a cliffhanger with this one, so make sure you've got Blameless on hand before reading it. Also, don't read the Blameless blurb BEFORE reading Changeless. I was given this sage advice by my wonderful friends, and it was good advice indeed.Now--as for Changeless [...]

    17. Quick review:Cover:Still Cute Rating:R Thumbs Up:4.5Overall: What an ending? I mean I knew part of it, but I’d have never guessed.Characters: Well donePlot: A mystery and a journey with two companions that made it more interesting.Page Turner: Yes Series Cont.?ABSOLUTELY Recommend:YesBook Boyfriend: TunstellSUMMARY (50 words or less)I was concerned after reading some reviews, but I enjoyed this one. The plot moved so that even though Lord Maccon wasn’t there as much as some wish, I didn’t [...]

    18. For all the pronunciation differences between this and the Finishing School books, I still enjoyed the audio immensely. Emily Gray did a fantastic job and I'm dying for book three, not in the least thanks to that ending. "What could happen in the final 5-10 minutes?" Ohhhh buddy. I won't be asking that question again when it comes to Gail Carriger's books. Wuff.I loved the inclusion of Sidheag Maccon and Genevieve Lefoux, two of my Finishing School favorites. The timelines get a bit mixed up in [...]

    19. I think I enjoyed reading this second instalment of the Parasol Protectorate series even more than I did the first one:) I love the world & characters that Carriger has created and her writing is sharp and full of wit. The book is fast-paced and very fun to read. What made it even better for me was that there was less romance-type passages than in 'Soulless' and much more action. I do think it's better to read the series in order to better comprehend the plot, characters & the world they [...]

    20. 4.5 STARS readI must admit I thought book 1 was good but that's about it. On the other hand, book 2 was AMAZING, loved every page of it! It took me a while to get into the book because the topic is so very different from everything else, but once I did I could not put it down. I'll explain a bit for those who have not read it yet. We have this amazing soulless Italian heroine who is very practical and efficient, then we have her super sexy alpha werewolf of a husband. Both of them make such a gr [...]

    21. Fun, in a lacy, girly sort of way. Certainly not anything I'd want to spend too long wearing, but enjoyable enough for a couple of hours. The characters are growing on me, or perhaps gaining depth, and a few of the new ones were fun to meet, especially Mdme. Lefoux. Even Ivy's consistently hideous hats and dramatic malapropisms were worth a chuckle. However, she did get to be a bit over-the-top; I wonder if Carriger is going for the tone of the Victorian spoof(calling Bertie)? Except dear Bertie [...]

    22. You know it is darn good thing that I have book 3, otherwise the ending for book 2 would have left me PISSED. Now, it just makes me start book 3 right away. Stupid "husband" as Alexia always calls him. How can you just turn on poor Alexia like that? I hope a bigger, badder predator bites you in your werewolf ass!

    23. mon avis en FrançaisMy English reviewJ’étais un peu anxieuse de me lancer dans ce second tome. Je ne savais pas comment il était possible de faire un deuxième roman aussi bien que le premier. En effet je me demandais ce que l’auteur pourrait bien narrer étant donné que pour moi le premier volume se finissait de telle manière qu’il était difficile de continuer l’histoire de nos héros. Mais je m’étais trompée, et même si c’est vrai que j’ai préféré le roman précédent [...]

    24. note: Delayed review. Book read Sept. 4; review written Nov. 12 2010)Rating: 4.5The manner in which I enjoyed this book differed from that of the first, Soulless. This isn't the kind of book I wanted to race to finish. Instead I wanted to roll around in it. Revel in it.Likewise, the focus of this book is ever so slightly different than its predecessor. I'd say Changeless is fairly character-driven. There are only a few settings here, and a lot of dialogue and character interaction takes place. T [...]

    25. Well!This series continues to be fun, rather absurd, sometimes witty. The pack dynamics are interesting, etc, and this book features characters I already met in the Finishing School series. It’s a little odd to see them as adults, but I rather like seeing Sidheag again, and especially Vieve. I loved the part she had to play and the way queerness is just a part of this world, sex is not dreadfully horrifying (because as most people know, the Victorians weren’t actually, well, Victorian about [...]

    26. Ok this was a strange book for me. I've read the first one and even that sat at three stars and I wondered why I didn't mark it higher.After finishing the book I sat and began contemplating on why it was OK and not good.I mean it has a rather forward thinking female with an intresting ability. The Storyline was much more satisfying in this book than the last. It was intresting that there was this 'plague' that was exorcising ghosts and turning Werewolves and vampires human.Also the new character [...]

    27. Took me awhile to get thru this one. kept getting distracted. says alotta about a book if it cant hold my attention. yet. yet i kept coming back to it- and I'm glad I did.a mysterious event has occured in London. for a time, all the supernaturals lose their super almost as if sections of London have touched the preternatural Lady Alexia Tarabotti Maccon all at once. To solve the mystery Lady Maccon travels to Scotland- where her husband Conall has absconded off to with no warning. Meanwhile, Ale [...]

    28. Finally available on Audible! I'm listening to this one - I loved, loved, loved the reader for Souless and she's back for books 2 & 3, which I have. This might take me awhile to finish as I only listen in the car on longer trips :) I've heard an hour so far and am enjoying itG - what a way to end the book! The author is evil - pure evil! Of course I have to load Blameless on my GPS for my long drive to upstate NY.These books are just plain fun - the only reason I marked it 4 stars is there w [...]
