Heartless by Gail Carriger was an absolutely splendid read. This book actually dealt more with the past of both the Woolsley Pack and Kingair Pack than any of the other Parasol Protectorate novels. The plot line was full of twists and unexpected occurrences. Some of the twists I was pleased with and liked immensely, others I was not as fond of. However, despite that, I could not see the book ending any other way. The end of the book was unbelievable. I was completely spellbound and read the whole book in one day. There was less banter in this one than some of the other Parasol novels, but I enjoyed delving into the thinking of some of the less conspicuous characters and experiencing the travails of a VERY pregnant Alexia. I think Heartless had a very satisfying ending, so I can only wait until March to see what Gail Carriger will come up with for Timeless.
I received a free copy of Heartless from Hachette in exchange for an honest review.
