Fantasy. Fiction. Science Fiction. Historical Fiction. HTML: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.
Until, that is, she receives a summons 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?
Timeless is the final book of the Parasol Protectorate series: a comedy of manners set in Victorian London, full of werewolves, vampires, dirigibles, and tea-drinking.

A jaunty conclusion to this quintet, answering some questions and leaving others open for more exploration in this world. The Maccons travel to Egypt, to uncover old secrets while the werewolves of London try to figure out who killed one of their Scottish kin. I'm intrigued enough to want to read the sequel series! ( )

I read the five books of this series in 10 days. The characters are great and really diverse, the language is creamy, salty and sweet, and I mean that in the best way possible. The plot is nice, the world is splendid. I enjoyed every minute of this journey. I laughed, I cried, I nodded in approval and I frowned with dissaproval when some characters did the most outragious things. I hate Alexia's sister! In a totally good way. Some characters you need to hate. I loved how much food was involved, and clothing, and umbrellas. I want more! Lucky for me Gail Carriger wrote more books, so I am going to read them now. Have a nice day. ( )

Wow, this series has taken me on quite the ride, and I've loved it. I'm so sad there isn't more, but I was pleased to learn that there are more books from this universe, so I will def be checking those out.

Carriger has created a fun world of mysteries and snark, and it was just the kind of books I needed right now. Not too serious, but really enjoyable, with witty characters.

I really enjoyed this final installment, it had me on the edge of my seat at times. Some of the mysteries were obvious, but this one actually help a couple of surprises along the way. And I feel Carriger has ended this series in a satisfactory way. ( )

WOAH, what a fucking ride. With a hundred pages left I was like "FUCK YEAH this is so awesome there are like five different plots going on I can't wait to see how it all ties together in the end!", and with 30 pages left I was in a state of "OMFG how is this every going to end in a way that isn't total misery!?!?!?".

It did not end in total misery and the different plots were (mostly) solved in a nice way where everything fit together and made sense. My friend Fuzzy said yesterday, when I mentioned I was gonna finish the book, "hope it ends the way that makes you satisfied" which I thought was a nice blessing, and I must say the book did do that.

Not only the book, actually, the series ended in a way that made me satisfied. It has been a very entertaining series, and I liked it so much more than I ever thought I would like a werewolf-vampire-steampunk-romance-series. ( )

This last installment of the Parasol Protectorate is much more hard-hitting than the previous books. Namely, things change. A lot. So much, in fact, that I wish there was a sixth book because dammit, I really want to see what happens next. (view spoiler) But yet, at the same time, there is definitely closure here.

Loose ends are tidied up and the characters start planning for their futures in ways that have never been done before. The first half of the book progressed as I expected given the previous books, but then Carriger shows that she may have more mettle than I had previously thought. There are revelations of character, history, and politics. The plot twists, turns, and at the very end gets stood on its head.

And the ancient Egypt nerd in me LOVED the inclusion of Hatshepsut. ( )
