it was amazing

This is the final installment of the Parasol Protectorate series by Carriger. Set two years after the end of ‘Heartless’, Lord and Lady Maccon have had a period of relative peace. Living surreptitiously with Lord Akaldama, the adoptive father of their daughter, life is surreal but has involved none of the usual attempts on their lives. This comes to an end with an invitation from the world’s oldest vampire- an invitation they cannot turn down- involving a trip to Egypt. Meanwhile, someone has killed the Beta of the Kingair pack just as he was about to impart a new discovery to Alexia…

‘Timeless’ ties up all (except one, which I cannot mention because it would be a spoiler) of the lose ends from the first four books, but it does it in the manner of a roller coaster. Domestic scenes of Alexia and Conall with young Prudence end with bloody battles NOT of the domestic kind. By the end, almost everyone has had their life turned upside down and changed forever.

I have to say, this is my favorite book of the series. There is more character growth than I would have thought possible in a series this fluffy- from secondary characters as well as primaries- as people grow up and grow into their responsibilities and learn to let go of the past. There are some real surprises- big ones. The end is unexpected, but satisfying.
