Timeless by Gail Carriger
Timeless fallows The Maccons, along with a fine troop of rather entertaining actors to the far from London-city-life world of Egypt, Vampires and decades old mysteries. What is the god-breaker plague and will we finely discover what the plague truly links back to?
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?"
