Gail Carriger’s best-selling Parasol Protectorate series reimagines Victorian England with vampires, werewolves, and a dash of steampunk. Blameless is the third in the series starring the parasol-wielding Lady Alexia Maccon, formerly Alexia Tarabotti. After news spreads of her delicate condition—a surprise to everyone since she’s married to a werewolf—Alexia is desperate to escape the London gossip. So she heads to Italy for a change of scenery.
Blameless is full of action, and dealing with all the emotions. Alexia is trying to figure out how to deal with her situation on her own, and Lord Maccon is busy acting like an idiot.
Alexia is lucky to have friends like Madame Lafoux. She accompanies her on her trip, and does what she can to make sure that Alexia is safe. This is difficult as Alexia seems to always tumble into trouble. We also get to see the Knights Templar. They are a rather boring group of people. We also start asking more questions about Mister Floot. I want to know how he knows freaking EVERYTHING!
I like that Alexia doesn’t rely on others to make sure she is saved. She doesn’t play the Damsel in Distress card well. She’s fully capable of taking care of herself, most of the time.
I’m ready to jump into the next book, and see what happens in Lady Maccon’s life next.
