A short review for you, which surely contains spoilers from the first novel: Soulless.

I read the first book in The Parasol Protectorate series earlier this year and loved it, so I was a little eager to get on to the second book, Changeless.  In this second installment, we find Alexia married to her beau and off on a new mystery - the werewolves about town are failing to change, which means something paranormally wrong is afoot.  Soon Alexia is off with her strange entourage to Scotland to try and solve the mystery.

This book held all the whimsy of the first novel with some new technological twists.  Alexia's new parasol, a gift from her husband, was my favorite gadget - a Swiss-Army-Parasol of sorts.  Of course, there was also the Dirigibles (the only way to travel ;)) and the aethographor.  Steampunk technology is fascinating.

Three stars!  The book started and ended on high notes, but the middle failed to capture my full attention.  Based on how Changeless ended, however, I'm really looking forward to continuing on with the series to the third book, Blameless.  If you like Steampunk and/or paranormal and/or a good romance, definitely check out this series.
