Publisher's Summary

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 Tunstell suddenly become the most popular actress in all the British Empire?

So long but not goodbye?

Carriger has done it again. The final installment of the Alexia Tarabotti series is just as engaging as the first 4 books. BUT in many ways, this book is more satisfying because we see happiness and closure for most of the main characters with just enough tantalizing loose ends to keep hope alive. Thank you Gail for bringing such a vividly entertaining world to light. I have enjoyed Alexia???s story and hope to read more about this steampunk world in the future. As always, Emily Gray is brilliant.

Delightfully Unique

The entire series has been delightfully unique and original, thoroughly enjoyable. The entire series is a must read: Souless, Heartless, Blameless, and Timeless; but start at the beginning.

An excellent series finale, can't wait to read more Carriger books!

An excellent final instalment in this series. Full of action and adventure as Alexia and co travel to Egypt, in the company of Ivy Tunstell and her players, to visit the Alexandra Hive. And back at home the Woolsey Pack have their own fun, including the exposition of the role of Lyle in the plot that broke Lord Maccon from his Scottish pack many years ago (as mentioned in the Finishing School books) and its repercussions, and his new romance with Biffy.
This excellently written book is full of characters, events and locations that spring to life in your mind, aided by the narrators excellent skills. I'm sad the series has finished, and can't wait to read/listen to more Gail Carriger books!
