Quitting her husband’s house and moving back in with her horrible family, Lady Maccon becomes the scandal of the London season.
Queen Victoria dismisses her from the Shadow Council, and the only person who can explain anything, Lord Akeldama, unexpectedly leaves town. To top it all off, Alexia is attacked by homicidal mechanical ladybugs, indicating, as only ladybugs can, the fact that all of London’s vampires are now very much interested in seeing Alexia quite thoroughly dead.
While Lord Maccon elects to get progressively more inebriated and Professor Lyall desperately tries to hold the Woolsey werewolf pack together, Alexia flees England for Italy in search of the mysterious Templars. Only they know enough about the preternatural to explain her increasingly inconvenient condition, but they may be worse than the vampires — and they’re armed with pesto. (from Goodreads)
I just finished this book after waiting since FEBRUARY for it to be published. The last book, Changeless, had a real cliff-hanger ending. Even though this one did not have much interaction between the main characters, I think it was even better than the last. There were some wonderful lines in it that I had to read out loud to people. The author has a wonderful and funny way of turning a phrase.
Blameless, thank goodness, did not have a cliff-hanger ending, but there is a sequel scheduled for July 2011 titled Heartless. It’s not on Amazon yet, so I will have to wait to preorder it. It’s definitely on my list though.
