My rating: 5 of 5 stars
A delightful end to the steampunk fantasy series (though we’re promised a new series featuring the heroine’s daughter–Yay!). Vampires, werewolves, Victorian hats, oh my! New and unexpected depths are given to some of our favorite secondary characters and Alexia’s 2-year-old daughter gives rise to some of the funniest moments in this Woodhouse-meets-vampires world.
Ms. Carriger finishes the series with a bang: the best yet. Wonderful job of wrapping it up, yet leaving enough so that we’re anticipating the continuation of the new series (set in the same alternate universe). Though still retaining its light-hearted tone, TIMELESS also touches deeper issues in a heartfelt way.
