Heartless - Gail Carriger
In this book, Alexia is about eight months pregnant, but naturally, things are afoot, and she’s unable to take things easy. Her sister has joined the suffragettes, her friend Madame Lefoux is strangely distracted, and someone is threatening to kill the queen, and it may be tied to events deep in Alexia’s husband’s past.
Oh, and Lord and Lady Maccon are forced to move into Lord Akeldama’s second best closet, because allowing him to adopt their as yet unborn child is the only way they can stop the other vampires from trying to kill Alexia, and said child. So the werewolves are moving into London.
The book really is as frenetic as the multiple plot lines imply, but it’s all good fun.
