Alexia Lives In An AMAZING WORLD OMG She was spunky If you love steampunk culture this is for youFor me this book is 45 stars I rounded up because I personally hate Victorian era books But I wanted to read this to get to another book in this world What I loved I love love love Lord Macoon And my favorite SCs were Lyall Ivy Tunstell Biffyhate the name Biffy reminded me of Buffy the Vampire slayer Lord Akeldama Madam Lefoux and her son they all were awesomely built The Fantasy aspect of this book There was such an array of cleaverly built lovable MCs as well as super sweet SCsExpectsteampunk Old Victorian dress and secriotion was not for me I d rather have cool gadgets the Vampires Werewolves Ghost and ghouls were cool to read but the way Alexia treated the ones protecting her made her difficult to even likeNonetheless the overall feel of the book was amazingly fun And for me it is still a 45 Star lovely read due to the Victorian era which wasis not my thing But again my bad

Ernatural powers prove useful or just plain embarrassing Finally who is the real enemy and do they have treacle tartThe Parasol Protectorate is a comedy of manners set in Victorian London full of werewolves vampires dirigibles and tea drinkingThis bundle includes the whole series Soulless Changeless Blameless Heartless and Timeles. Summary These books take place in an AU Victorian England in which vampires werewolves and mad scientists are accepted elements of high society The protagonist Alexia Tarabotti has an ability which enables her to temporarily strip supernatural beings of their power when she touches them and a tendency to get involved in other people s business The result is five books worth of adventures in Britain Europe and EgyptThat description sounds bland but what makes the series non bland is all the eccentric characters who Alexia herself uite eccentric has her adventures with a lord who is also a werewolf and also an adorable lummox a genius lady inventor and her ghost mentor the most fashionable vampire in all of London and his menage of handsome young men a butler with a mysterious past an airheaded best friend with hidden depths and There s fashion romance mysteries humor airships explosions and a rampaging mechanical octopus that s in Book 4 IIRC Everything is done with style and aplomb up to and including whacking miscreants up the head with high tech parasolsThoughts I thought these books were delightful I read on Carriger s blog that she thinks of her books as cupcakes and I think that is apt metaphor provided you are talking about gourmet cupcakes and not like crappy mass produced ones They are tasty and pleasant without much nutritional value and eating them made me happy and want to eatread They re fun and while bad things occasionally happen to likable characters gotta motivate adventures somehow the narrative doesn t dwell on horrible things but on how the characters recover and save the day Perfect for escapismAn thing of note is that depending how you count major at least half the major characters in the series are gay lesbian or bisexual including the main protagonist who is bi That is pretty remarkable for a mainstream fantasy series New York Times Bestselling counts as mainstream right I wasn t keeping tabs while I read I only noticed the remarkable number of LGB characters when I started writing this up In the books Victorian society in general is not vastly accepting than it was in actual history but the supernatural sub society isEscapist Rating 44Recommended for People looking for well written light entertainment People who like stories with positively portrayed LGB characters People who like a bit of romance in their madcap adventures People who think that it s not enough to just kick ass one should look good while doing itDis Recommended for People who think Steampunk or Urban Fantasy should be all Serious Business People who need some grimdark mixed in with their escapism People for whom period appropriate unexamined admiration of the British Empire by British characters is a dealbreaker Homophobic People
