Gail Carriger - Changeless

Title: Changeless
Author: Gail Carriger

Genre: Fiction (Paranormal romance)

Love/Hate?: Sentimental like.
Rating: 3/5
Did you finish?: Yes -- I was dying to get to the dénouement!

One-sentence summary: Alexia Tarabotti wrangles her husband's former pack and solves a mystery.

Why did you get this book?: Sequel to Soulless

Do you like the cover?: Eh.

First line from book: "They are what?"

Review: Maybe I should sit on this a little, since I finished this book literally twenty minutes ago. There's a cliff hanger at the end which I hate, only because my mancrush Conall responds in a way that feels (to me) a bit out of character. I feel awfully curmudgeon-y for this review: while the book was witty and droll, it also felt a little off for me. I disliked the new characters -- Madame Lefoux, Lady Kingair -- and was pretty annoyed with the returning ones -- Ivy and Angelique. The only thing that kept me happy was Alexia and Conall, so it felt like a big slap when I hit the end!

I'll revisit this review in a month or two -- we'll see what sticks. I'm pretty sure I'll still be annoyed by the sapphic thing that was going on but maybe I'll feel less hostile about everything else.
