4.5 starsThis has been the best book in the series thus far!
In Heartless Alexia is very pregnant with the infant inconvenience and is waddling around. However, just because she's in this dirigeable state doesn't mean she won't have any adventures, oh contraire my dears, oh contraire!
A ghost shows herself to Alexia, which is strange considering she is peternatural, and warns 'Alexia Macaroon', that some one wants to kill the queen.
Because of the pregnancy hormones, it takes Alexia a while to figure out which queen the ghost is talking about, but once she puts the puzzle pieces together; thus the adventure begins.
This adventure leads to a very interesting and unexpected end, in which a lot of major revelations are revealed about characters I have grown to know and love throughout this series. I loved the back stories and Madame Lefoux's octomaton carnage resulted in a very unexpected twist.
The story ends with a cliff hanger and I cannot wait to travel onto Timeless to see how it's all going to end.
