Timeless by Gail Carriger

Timeless takes Alexia Tarabotti to Egypt with her precocious, preternatural, daughter Prudence, her werewolf husband Lord Maccon, and her hat-crazy best friend Ivy. The story moves the series along nicely and the mix of steampunk and Victorian slashfic parody is still fun to read. The series may be able to live on for a book or two but any mysteries or cliff-hangers left in this book could be easily be left unanswered.

Looking forward to more books in the series as well as the new spin-off series Parasol Protectorate Abroad and the YA series Finishing School.
