it was amazing

Oh La! Just finished another enjoyable romp through the world of Alexia, Conall and company. Always makes me want to start using Victorian turns of phrase. This book is lighthearted with just the right dose of seriousness when appropriate, but mostly it tries not to take itself too seriously. Alexia is very pregnant, which we are made aware of again and again, as she does things most heavily pregnant women would avoid or at least do with more caution. Perhaps the famous saying should be "where pregnant ladies fear to tread goes Alexia". On a case to protect the queen, Alexia discovers more about the history of the pack she has married into and a little more about her mysterious father Alessandro and how he died. There is a change of venue, more scenes with Lord Akeldama (understandable considering the change of venue) and the end welcomes the new baby, who looks to be making things even more interesting in books to come. All in all a great read for the beach or at home staying cool this summer.
