Waiting on Wednesday

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine to spotlight an upcoming release that we're excited about. This week I'm waiting on the graphic novel Heartless by Gail Carriger.

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?

This is the fourth in a series called The Parasol Protectorate. If you haven't read any of the first three, I STRONGLY recommend them. They're amaze-balls. As in laugh out loud hilarious. That and the fact that Carriger seems to have a clever grasp on what's going on in her steampunk universe. Super clever, kinda sexy, and just overall awesome, I'm excited for this next installment.

Heartless comes out June 28!
