Book 5, The Parasol Protectorate

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Alexia Tarabotti, Lady Maccon, has settled into domestic bliss. Of course, being Alexia, such bliss involves integrating werewolves into London High society, living in a vampire's second best closet, and coping with a precocious toddler who is prone to turning supernatural willy-nilly.

Until, that is, she receives a summons that cannot be ignored. With husband, child, and Tunstells in tow, Alexia boards a steamer to cross the Mediterranean. But Egypt may hold more mysteries than even the indomitable Lady Maccon can handle. What does the vampire Queen of the Alexandria Hive really want from her? Why is the God-Breaker Plague suddenly expanding? And how has Ivy Tunstell suddenly become the most popular actress in all the British Empire?
TIMELESS is the final book of the Parasol Protectorate series: a comedy of manners set in Victorian London, full of werewolves, vampires, dirigibles, and tea-drinking.

From Publishers Weekly

Jan 16, 2012 – Carriger s Parasol Protectorate series concludes with this uneven fifth installment (after Heartless). Two years after moving into vampire Lord Akeldama s third closet, the soulless Lady Alexia Maccon receives a summons from the world s oldest vampire, who requests an audience with Alexia s soul-stealing, scene-stealing two-year-old daughter, Prudence. Accompanying them to Egypt are Alexia s werewolf husband, Conall; the mysterious inventor Madame Lefoux; and Alexia s best friend, fluttery actress Ivy Tunstell, and her family and colorful theatrical troupe. Back in London, beta werewolf Professor Lyall and new pack member Biffy find love in unexpected places while investigating nefarious goings-on. Steampunk inventions take a backseat to the witty and affectionate depictions of the characters and their relationships. The language is somewhat forced and overstuffed, as if the complex plot overwhelmed Carriger s ability to string words together, but series readers will fall for Prudence and be happy with how it all wraps up.

Customer Reviews

All hail the victorious parasol!

Loved this series. Upset this is the last book in this series. Looking forward to Prudence, but it won't be out until 2013!!! Grrrr


Love it. . .

Ruffled parasol victorious again

This is not your traditional vampire book. From the very first sentence in Soulless you're hooked. The books are funny with suspense building action with some romance included. Everyone will be satisfied. It's a vampire/werewolve story approached from a whole new direction. I can't believe someone didn't think of it sooner! Please Gail don't stop writing more books in this series. So much more excitement is yet to come.
