Heartless - Gail Carriger 2.5 stars

I liked this one substantially better than the last one. Less angst and drama, more mystery and humor. I really liked how Alexia and the "infant inconvenience" get on with each other, how Alexia is changing (even though she is Soulless?), though I remain unimpressed by Alexia and Maccon's relationship.

Still, I enjoy all the secondary characters, the sparkling and witty prose, with lots of word play and humor. The book dragged for a while before getting the plot rolling here. All in all, it was better than the third, but certain things are getting a bit tired and overdone. I did not like the ending much. Why are there no normal babies?

Looking forward to the conclusion this summer, [b:Timeless|11324166|Timeless (The Parasol Protectorate, #5)|Gail Carriger|http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/512XIXrzs9L._SL75_.jpg|13210557], as well as being very, very excited for her new YA series coming late this year!
