"Soulless has all the delicate charm of a Victorian parasol, and all the wicked force of a Victorian parasol secretly weighted with brass shot and expertly wielded. Ravishing."―Lev Grossman, author of The Magicians on Soulless
"Carriger debuts brilliantly with a blend of Victorian romance, screwball comedy of manners and alternate history. . . . This intoxicatingly witty parody will appeal to a wide cross-section of romance, fantasy and steampunk fans."―Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) on Soulless
"Carriger has created a wonderfully detailed world that is just one step to the side of our own."―sfrevu.com on Changeless
"The second episode in the 'Parasol Protectorate' should win it even more fans. I'm already hooked."―Locus on Changeless
"The dialogue is as smart and snappy as ever, full of intelligent humor and artful verbal sparring."―All Things Urban Fantasy on Changeless
"Changeless is the equal to Soulless: witty, sexy, graceful, and unpredictable. With a few more novels this delightful, Ms. Carriger will be challenging Laurell K. Hamilton and Charlaine Harris for the top of the New York Times bestseller lists."―Fantasy Magazine on Changeless
About the Author
New York Times bestselling author Gail Carriger writes to cope with being raised in obscurity by an expatriate Brit and an incurable curmudgeon. She escaped small town life and inadvertently acquired several degrees in Higher Learning. Ms. Carriger then traveled the historic cities of Europe, subsisting entirely on biscuits secreted in her handbag. She resides in the Colonies, surrounded by fantastic shoes, where she insists on tea imported from London.
The Parasol Protectorate books are: Soulless, Changeless, Blameless, Heartless, and Timeless. Soulless won the ALA's Alex Award. A manga adaptation released in Spring 2012 and a young adult series set in the same universe -- the Finishing School series -- launched in Spring 2013. Gail is soon to begin writing a new adult series, The Parasol Protectorate Abroad (2015).

The book quality was good. You could see that it was a second hands book that had been kept in good condition. Arrived on time.
Reread in October, 2012
First I read the paperback--it walked away. Then I got the e-book, but that wasn't the same. 20 y/o agreed and bought the whole set. Then I got the audio and hit the jackpot! Emily Gray is an absolutely fantastic audio performer, and her work with the Parasol Protectorate proves it! The storyline is somewhat complicated, and while it works fine as a stand alone, it does make the reader not only want the rest of the series, but also the earlier one. Enjoy!
This third installment of the Parasol Protectorate series has brought back some of my favourite characters. Of course, Alexia is in more than fine form. She is peeved at her husband, yet misses him at every turn, even though she is not prepared to admit such to anyone. For much of the book, it is Lord Akeldama absence that keeps me guessing. He is such a staunch supporter of Alexia, yet when he is needed most, he is nowhere to be found. And finally there is Floote, butler/secretary/librarian. He worked with/for Alexia's father for years and he is there for her. He has depths that this story just starts to touch on.
I loved this book. I poured through it and found myself near the end long before I was ready. There was so much build up of events, that I found the final resolution a bit too quick. I had expected Lord Maccon to play more of a role in the final events. Even though I wanted more, the solution to the 'events' was quite in fitting with the characters involved. I am now looking forward to listening to the audiobook version of Heartless, the forth novel in this series.
For those who have read this book, in the future I will not be looking at ladybugs with the same indifference.
So begins the 2nd book in the Parasol Protectorate series by Gail Carriger, and I couldn't have asked for a better sequel. Alexia is blooming in her role on the Shadow Council. Add to that a husband who understands her well enough to commission a very special parasol for her and she feels herself a lucky woman indeed. But what's life without a few challenges, eh? Alexia certainly has her work cut out for her what with Conall slipping off to Scotland without a word to her, a mysterious phenomenon that renders the supernaturals in London super-less, and an female inventor/scientist who dresses like a man and sets Alexia's instincts buzzing. What choice does she have but to follow Conall to Scotland (by dirigible!) so that she can warn him that the phenomenon seems to be mobile and has preceded him to Scotland? And what choice do you have but to read this and find out what happens. You won't be disappointed, I promise you!
