Shizuku's Sleepy Reviews

Ill mannered, bad tempered, and set in my ways. When I write a review I'm starting a conversation. Not writing a f#%^#ng book report. Don't like it then go the f^%k away!

Soulless (Parasol Protectorate, #1)Soulless by Gail Carriger
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Phenomenally sophisticated filled with wit and charm. There couldn't have been a better way to write a paranormal fiction. I adored this novel, and I can't wait to finish the next book in the series.

Yes, the characters were awesome, and the plot was full of win. After finishing the series; I now look forward to Carriger's work. Though I can't seem to appreciate tea to an excessive degree as the main character, but I do harbor the same type of adoration for coffee.

Carriger has an awesome grasp on how to write about a hero/love interest. Lord Maccon is the type of character that should be the basis of most of the trashy YA books heroes should be. He respects Alexia Tarabotti to a degree, and even goes out of his way to impress her. This follows the structure of good romance, and sticks with it. Big Loves!

Well thats all for now. Look for more reviews on my page.
Cheers Pretties!
