Not as good as the first in the series, Soulless, and actually a little on the annoying side. I liked the basic plot of something making all the supernatural changeless (hence the title), but there was quite a bit to disappoint. Alexia's husband’s reaction at the end was a bit overboard, I mean he married someone like her so things are bound to be different. The jury is still out on her new French friend, Madame Lefoux, who was often irritating but occasionally likable. I was glad that she finally got her ride in a dirigible, but reading about this Scotland after the Scotland in Outlander was a bit disappointing as well. I can't be too harsh as this is definitely a book/series to be read for fun and not in seriousness. I just hope that the series will turn around with the next book or it's curtains for the Parasol Protectorate.
