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?
Guys, it’s so hard to review later books in series that are pretty much par for the course for the series. It makes me wish I did series as a single review, but that presents many difficulties too. So whatever, this will be a short review. I think. Though I’ve said that before and been laughably wrong. Heartless definitely left me whelmed, which is better than some of the books in the series, but also not as thrilling as the first installment.
