The Parasol Protectorate 2

by Gail Carriger

Not Everyone Can Change!

Alexia, no longer a spinster or a Tarabotti, is now a Maccon, the Lady Woolsey and muhjah to the queen. When Alexia wakes one night to discover her husband missing, her front lawn overrun with werewolves and one very infuriating Major Channing Channing of the Chesterfield Channings getting in her way, she is none too happy. But more worrying then even one of Ivy's new hats is the unexplained plague of humanization affecting the supernatural community.

With her husband on his way to Scotland, Alexia soon follows suit, only not so much to track down her husband but instead to track the cause of the humanization of the supernatural community. And luckily for Alexia the most expedient method of travel is the long sort after travel by dirigible. However more and more in her investigations Alexia is realising there is much her husband has neglected to inform her off.

Changeless will bring a new challenge to the ever capable and always hungry Alexia as she goes in search of a mystery that grows more intriguing with every pot of tea. However it seems that everyone is hiding a secret, even the unsuspecting Alexia herself, and if she's not too careful she may just loose her life, not to mention her appetite, although the haggis was not too bad. But the biggest shock will come at the end of this adventure so hold tight to your parasols.
