Praise for The Parasol Protectorate

“This intoxicatingly witty parody will appeal to a wide cross-section of romance, fantasy and steampunk fans.”

~ Publishers Weekly, starred review (Soulless)

“A tapestry that is simultaneously witty, charming, exhilarating and downright fun."

~ fantasyliterature.com (Soulless)

“Alexia is my new favorite character in fiction right now. . .smart, sassy, has no "filter", and is a refreshing new voice in literature. There is nothing like it out right now. . . and I dare you not to giggle like a schoolgirl (and guffaw like a loon) when you read it.”

~ Book Buyers Anonymous (Soulless)

“A character-driven romp with great world-building and delicious rapier wit that recalls Austen and P.G. Wodehouse.”

~ io9.com (Soulless)

“The Parasol Protectorate presents what is perhaps the most original twist on vampire and werewolf mythology to ever appear in the genre.”

~ RobWillReview (Soulless)
