Praise for The Parasol Protectorate
“Carriger’s Parasol Protectorate series beautifully blends together alternate history, steampunk and paranormal romance into stories that are witty, engaging and fun.”
“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."
“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.”
“The Parasol Protectorate presents what is perhaps the most original twist on vampire and werewolf mythology to ever appear in the genre.”
