Lady Alexia Maccon, soulless, is at it again, only this time the trouble is not her fault. When a mad ghost threatens the queen, Alexia is on the case, following a trail that leads her deep into her husband's past. Top that off with a sister who has joined the suffragette movement (shocking!), Madame Lefoux's latest mechanical invention, and a plague of zombie porcupines and Alexia barely has time to remember she happens to be eight months pregnant.
Will Alexia manage to determine who is trying to kill Queen Victoria before it is too late? Is it the vampires again or is there a traitor lurking about in wolf's clothing? And what, exactly, has taken up residence in Lord Akeldama's second best closet?(
There are so many secrets in this installation. It seems like everyone is hiding something, and Alexia needs to figure out what it is. She finds out things about her father, and those close to her. And I absolutely love Ivy in this book. She is always a source of quick laughs, and not as dull minded as people think.
We also find a possible solution to the vampires no longer being angry about Alexia’s infant inconvenience. (I swear if I had read these books while I was pregnant that would have been little bean’s nickname.) I loved how Alexia is always very practical, and tells her baby bump when it’s not a good time for her to come.
The shenanigans are endless, and we learn so much about various characters. Now on to read Timeless!
