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?

Yea, sneaky me!) and so intrigue with Alexia and Prudence's future.So my rating is not final, and I will re-read this again after reading HeartlessBTW, ugh, Lyall and Biffy? o_O Is Biffy already move on ...
Der Abschlussband war ein wenig düster, die Verpflechtungen und Winkelzüge waren allerdings wieder gelungen wie in allen übrigen PP-Büchern auch. Abzug von 'brilliant' hin zu 'sehr gut' gibt es von mir dafür, dass sich eine Person (die ich die Reihe über so trocken und charmant fand) hier doch arg d...
