Changeless - Gail Carriger
Alexia Maccon, Lady Woolsey, is woken up in the middle of the afternoon by the sound of her husband yelling at the top of his lungs. Considering that he’s a werewolf, and should be asleep at that hour, this can’t be a good thing, especially when he then disappears, leaving Alexia to deal with a sudden plague of human-ness in London’s supernatural community.
In true steampunk fashion, this book involves a tricked out parasol and a dirigible ride up to Scotland. There, Alexia has to interfere in werewolf pack politics, learning quite a bit about her husband along the way, and managing to figure out the humanity plague.
I’m not sure what to say about this book. On one level, it’s fluffy fun, and I did enjoy it, but there’s something about this series that kinda irritates me, and I can’t put a finger on what. I’ll definitely keep reading, partially because I want to figure out what’s bugging me.
