Publisher's Summary

A short tale of mummies, werewolves, and well-preserved felines set in this Parasol Protectorate prequel!

When Alessandro Tarabotti and his valet, Floote, find themselves in Egypt on the queen's business, a chance encounter with tourists quickly leads to a...situation...with the local mummies. Can Allesandro complete his secret mission before he's hijacked by social obligation? And how will his aunt Archangelica react to his treatment of her cat?

For years the subject of speculation and rumor, the nature of Alexia Tarabotti's father's adventures and romances is finally revealed in this glorious full-cast audio production with an original score by composer Danny Schade. ArtisticWhispers Productions and New York Times best-selling author Gail Carriger are proud to present you the long-awaited stand-alone prequel to her defining steampunk masterpiece The Parasol Protectorate.

excellent

Excellent companion to the soulless series. I've enjoyed all of her books and especially the parasol protectorate.

Short but nice

Before this, the only thing I had read by Carriger was "Soulless", and I did really enjoy it. I grabbed this to try and get a little background info, and while it was good it didn't really give me what I was hoping for. It was a story from the past, but only showed that the dad did some cool things then and worked for interesting people. I guess I felt there could have been more to it. Still worth a listen.

Terrible narration

I couldn’t even listen to the first story... the narration was amateurishly bad. I enjoyed several of Gail Carriger’s books so I was expecting entertaining short stories... very disappointing!

Distasteful

Death and destruction for some purpose that probably furthers the plot but makes this little segment really unpleasant. Poor cat plot point is wasted; somebody doesn't like cats.

short and fun

This is a backstory to Soulless and other books by Gail Carriger and gives a feel of what Alexia's father was like. You don't need to read it first but can should you be the tidy sort.

Be warned, if you've already bought the Carriger Quartet this book is part of that collection.
