Now eight months pregnant, Alexia Tarbotti, Lady Maccon, is still protecting Queen and country with her fancy, yet practical parasol. You see a mad ghost was inconsiderate enough to pop up in her house and relay a death threat against the queen. Unfortunately, the only clue focuses on her husband’s past and no one in the pack wants her to investigate. But practical and dedicated, she searches in the past for the perpetrator of the current threat.
Full of interesting twists and betrayals, Heartless is another great book in the Parasol Protectorate series. The spotlight of treason shines on everyone from friends, family and pack and the truth is downright inconvenient for Alexia and the babe she carries. I loved the zombie porcupines, the dirigibles and especially the rampaging octomaton. My small compliant is once again, the alpha, Lord Maccon doesn’t act particularly alpha-ish and I miss the witty banter between Conall and Alexia so wonderfully done in Soulless. That small personal preference aside, Heartless is quite well done!
