"Waiting On" Wednesday, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine is a weekly meme that highlghts book we are anxiously awaiting. This week I am anxiously awaiting the fourth book in the Protectorate Series by Gail Carriger. Unfortunately, the books cover has not been released so I have a functional yet attractive Braddenburg parasol that Alexia Tarabotti Maccon might carry on one of her outings to visit Lord Akeldama
Author: Gail Carriger
Release date: June, 28, 2011
Lady Alexia Maccon, soulless, is at it again, only this time the trouble is not her fault. When a mad ghost threatens the queen, Alexia is on the case, following a trail that leads her deep into her husband's past. Top that off with a sister who has joined the suffragette movement (shocking!), Madame Lefoux's latest mechanical invention, and a plague of zombie porcupines and Alexia barely has time to remember she happens to be eight months pregnant.
Will Alexia manage to determine who is trying to kill Queen Victoria before it is too late? Is it the vampires again or is there a traitor lurking about in wolf's clothing? And what, exactly, has taken up residence in Lord Akeldama's second best closet?
Have I mentioned how much I love this series? Well, let me just say that I am on pins and needles waiting for this next adventure.
