Waiting on Wednesday #2

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted over at Jill's blog, and highlights upcoming releases were highly anticipating.

My entry for today is Timeless, the fifth and final book in Gail Carriger's Parasol Protectorate series. Amazon has it coming out March 2nd.
Alexia Tarabotti, Lady Maccon, has settled into domestic bliss. Of course, being Alexia, such bliss involves integrating werewolves into London High society, living in a vampire's second best closet, and coping with a precocious toddler who is prone to turning supernatural willy-nilly. Even Ivy Tunstell's acting troupe's latest play, disastrous to say the least, cannot put a damper on Alexia's enjoyment of her new London lifestyle.

Until, that is, she receives a summons from Alexandria that cannot be ignored. With husband, child, and Tunstells in tow, Alexia boards a steamer to cross the Mediterranean. But Egypt may hold more mysteries than even the indomitable Lady Maccon can handle. What does the vampire Queen of the Alexandria Hive really want from her? Why is the God-Breaker Plague suddenly expanding? And how has Ivy Tunstell suddenly become the most popular actress in all the British Empire?

 This series is the only one that I know of that is  about supernatural creatures and set in the past: 1800's England, to be exact. I mean, how cool is that? It is also humorous and steampunk-y.  Plus, Alexia and Lord Maccon are just adorable.  I am excited.


  1. This series has been one that I have wanted to try for some time. I love the covers, although this cover isn't my favorite out of them all. Great choice.

  3. Steph and Michelle - the books definitely stand out in the genre, and can go either way re liking them or not - and the covers too, hehe.

  4. I've had book 1 of this series on my wishlist for months I haven't had a chance to read it yet. Sounds like a fun series though.
