Heartless is the 4th novel in the Parasol Protectorate series about Alexia Tarrabotti. I loved the silliness and satire of the first book in the series, but enjoyed the next two much less. Heartless is definitely an improvement over the last two.
Minor characters are becoming more interesting to me than Alexia and Conall. Mr. Floote, the butler, has such aplomb. Professor Lyall and Lord Akadelma are both intriguing. Werewolves and vampires and more.
While I did like Heartless better than the two previous books, I still can't say that I felt any where near the pleasure of Soulless, the introductory novel to the series. The first one was a delight.
The Once Upon a Time Challenge. My second book for the challenge.
