Parasol Protectorate

Soulless (The Parasol Protectorate, #1)Soulless by Gail Carriger
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Love this series by Gail Carriger. I picked it up because of the kick-ass cover [my absolute favorite covers at present], and the plot doesn't disappoint: Victorian England, a sarcastic protagonist, werewolves, etiquette, and parasols. It doesn't get much better than that. I enjoyed the second book in the series more than the first, but I look forward to anything this author produces. Her website has a wealth of Victorian customs, dress, Steampunk goodies, etc. My favorite feature of her website is the Victorian dress-up doll feature. Definitely worth checking out.

  1. So glad you are writing about all of this! I'm in such a book slump. I needed some inspiration. Although I've heard that The Count of Monte Cristo should be my next choice. Have you read it?

    But this parasol one looks pretty cool too...
