PRE-ORDER HERE!

This beautiful hardback will match the previous Soulless and the Fan Service special editions from Subterranean Press!

Sub Press Multiple Covers Cloth Soulless Fan Service Delightfully Deadly Omnibus

It will include:

It will be the first time Ambush or Adore is in print! 

Limited (cloth light blue) & Numbered (leather dark blue) editions

Limited (cloth) & Numbered (leather) editions

As ever, these hardcovers are limited short run numbered editions. I sign every single one (see me talking about it here). You know they sell fast and once they are gone, they are gone. “Limited” really does mean exactly that. I recommend preordering.

There will also be a super fancy lettered edition that is dark blue and leather bound and comes in its own special case, but these are not yet up for preorder.

Digital is First

Can’t wait? The digital edition drops October 1, 2021. Also Soulless‘s 12th birthday!

Ambush or Adore: Delightfully Deadly #3 – AGATHA’S BOOK. London’s best and most covert spy tries to escape the man who has always adored her.

If you don’t see it on your platform of choice it may take a bit longer to upload. Remember you can always get my ebooks (and side load) directly from me. These are global, unrestricted, and allow me to earn the most in royalties: .mobi for Kindle | .epub for all other ereaders

Paperback

For those of you who prefer the paperback version, that will happen eventually too, but these versions are coming first. So it will be kind of like the old days of the Custard Protocol and Finishing School series, hardback first, paperback a bit later.

Audio

Audio is in production but always takes longer. I intend to give Chirrup members the option of buying the audiobook MP3s from me FIRST, before it goes exclusive to Audible and Apple, so watch this space.

I do hope you’re happy about this!

Subterranean Press is a joy to work with so I really hope you are as excited about this special print edition as I am. It’s just SO PRETTY. Gah.

Millions of teacups and kisses,

“It is genuinely lovely to revisit Biffy and Lyall’s romance, and see how Biffy has grown into his role of Alpha. Seeing the London pack settled and happy is wonderful.”

Cover Reveal for Ambush or Adore by Gail Carriger (Delightfully Deadly)

Posted by Gail Carriger

Gentle Reader, here’s the cover art for the next Parasolverse book, Ambush or Adore.

This is Delightfully Deadly #3, Agatha’s book. You don’t have to have read any of the others in the series.

How did this cover come to be?

This one is partly due to you, Gentle Reader. I randomly posted a photo of the first two in the series, Poison or Protect and Defy or Defend, and asked if anyone had thoughts on what the next one should be.

Instagram Poison or Protect Defy or Defend Comments

Normally when I post an open ended question like this to the socials, you are all over the place, but there was a CLEAR trend in responses: orange-peach-amber. It is so rare it for people to agree.

So I went to Starla. I already knew Agatha’s code name, of course, The Wallflower (it’s revealed in Reticence). So I decided that would be fun to incorporate in the covers.

So where as the other two, and the Finishing School books, all play on shadows, with Ambush or Adore one I wanted Starla to give Agatha the look of emerging from the wallpaper as well. Starla very cleverly did this with the lace of the dress.

I really hope you like it.

Note how her code name, The Wallflower, is reflected in the cover? Aren’t Starla and I clever girls?

Here’s the blurb!

London’s best and most covert spy tries to escape the man who has always adored her.

New York Times bestselling author Gail Carriger brings you a charming story of enduring love set in her popular Parasolverse. 

INTELLIGENCER

Agatha Woosmoss, the Wallflower, is the greatest intelligencer of her generation. And no one knows she exists. She has been invisible, capable, and cunning for well over four decades. Her greatest skill is in her ability to go forever unnoticed.

Except by one man.

VERSUS INTELLECTUAL

Pillover Plumleigh-Teignmott is a professor of ancient languages at Oxford University. He’s tried to ignore his training as an Evil Genius and live a quiet life away from politics and intrigue.

When an assignment goes horribly wrong, Agatha must hide and heal. So she goes to ground with the only person who’s always kept her safe, Pillover.

Can Pillover hold onto the deadly woman who specializes in getting away? Will Agatha realize that patience is indeed a virtue, and that perhaps it is good to be noticed by the one who waits?

Spinning off from Miss Gail’s Finishing School series, this story stands on its own and spans decades but was written after Defy or Defend. May contain vampires, old injuries, lost love, and the reappearance of many favorite characters.

Delicate Sensibilities?

This tale concerns a considerable amount of pining and the repressed passion of two people who secretly adore each other and occasionally act on it. Agatha and Pillover are mature characters who act maturely, please be aware of this.

PRINT & AUDIO ARE COMING.

The Chirrup learns about ’em first. Please be patient. Thank you!
