Heartless: A Novel of Vampires, Werewolves, and Teapots
by Gail Carriger
The Parasol Protectorate, book four
I love the casual snarkiness of this series. There is always something tongue-in-cheek happening. I find myself giggling all the way through, every time. Alexia is a woman that I would love to be friends with in real life. She's real, she's very practical, and like me, she loves nothing better than to eat!
Again I loved how all of the men in Alexia's life have made little accomodations to better fit themselves to her... I love that Alexia has not truly had to bend on any of her beliefs. Though I do not claim to be a staunch feminist, there is a definitive part of me that applauds Gail Carriger for the way that she writes this series. :)
Since this is book four, I cannot talk too much about the specifics without giving away tons of spoilers. Needless to say, if this sounds intriguing, I highly recommend you go back and try book one, Soulless. Lovers of the paranormal, steampunk, high tea, historical fiction, and humor unite!
