Waiting on Wednesday - 4/28

Okay "Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine.

My WOW book for this week is "Blameless" (The Parasol Protectorate, Book 3) by Gail Carriger.   For anyone who hasn't read this series, you should.  It is a wonderful mix of victorian, steampunk, paranormal, fantasy, and humor.  I've read "Souless" and "Changeless" and they were both excellent.  "Changeless" really leaves you hanging though, and I am desperate to read the third book "Blameless".   See below for cover and synopsis.

Blameless (The Parasol Protectorate) 
Synopsis From "Quitting her husband's house and moving back in with her horrible family, Lady Maccon becomes the scandal of the London season.

Queen Victoria dismisses her from the Shadow Council, and the only person who can explain anything, Lord Akeldama, unexpectedly leaves town. To top it all off, Alexia is attacked by homicidal mechanical ladybugs, indicating, as only ladybugs can, the fact that all of London's vampires are now very much interested in seeing Alexia quite thoroughly dead.

While Lord Maccon elects to get progressively more inebriated and Professor Lyall desperately tries to hold the Woolsey werewolf pack together, Alexia flees England for Italy in search of the mysterious Templars. Only they know enough about the preternatural to explain her increasingly inconvenient condition, but they may be worse than the vampires -- and they're armed with pesto."
