Synopsis courtesy of Goodreads
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 dampener 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?


I can't believe this is over. I really enjoyed spending time with Alexia and her gang. And I enjoyed the introduction of Prudence and I am excited to read more about her. This was a nice conclusion to the series and satisfied me.

Honestly, I don't have much to say and what I want to talk about is spoilery.

You've been warned.

I love that a couple years have past and Prudence isn't just a baby. And Ivy had twins. The next series better feature them.

Then, there's Biffy and Professor Lyall. There story was done so beautifully. I've liked them as individuals so of course they are great as a couple. This is probably the only thing that kind of left me wanting. But they are immortal so there is always time.

Thanks for reading!
