Book 5 in  Series

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. Even Ivy Tunstell’s acting troupe’s latest play, disastrous to say the least, cannot put a damper on Alexia’s enjoyment of her new London lifestyle. Until, that is, she receives a summons from Alexandria 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 suddenly become the most popular actress in all the British Empire?

This is the exciting and hilarious conclusion to the Parasol Protectorate series.

Praise for Timeless

“Steampunk inventions take a backseat to the witty and affectionate depictions of the characters and their relationships….series readers will fall for Prudence and be happy with how it all wraps up.”

Publishers Weekly

“Gail Carriger finishes off her Parasol Protectorate tetralogy with the same wit, humor and elan that made her preceding books New York Times bestsellers. For readers of the first four books, skipping Timeless would be as unthinkable as serving tea without biscuits.”

Miami Herald

“The world of Timeless is a unique recipe of steampunk and fantasy spiced with a light sprinkling of romance. Its setting is rich for characters to romp about in, but the unbridled playfulness of the language and dialogue shines brightest.”

Miami Herald
