Heartless (Parasol Protectorate #4) by Gail Carriger

Book Summery (Via Goodreads): 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?

Book Review:
Ok, so I have seriously fallen behind on my reviews. This of course, means that I'm a little fuzzy on this book since it's been a good month or two since I read it. From what I remember, I didn't like it as much as its predecessor or its successor. That being said, I just adore this series, and while this book didn't quite live up to the high standards I've placed on the series, I still really enjoyed it!

Favorite Quote:
“Oh, Professor Lyall, are you making a funny? It doesn’t suit you.”
The sandy-haired Beta gave Lady Maccon a dour look. “I am exploring new personality avenues.”
“Well, stop it.”
“Yes, my lady.” 

Cover Art Commentary:
I just ADORE these covers! This one is particularly lovely, as it displays a good amount of purple (my favorite color, if you haven't already guessed). I'm so glad they kept the original covers intact as many series today change covers mid-series. These are original and eye-catching. Perfect for the stories they contain!
