Books by Gail Carriger

A-
Imprudence

This is the second in the author’s Custard Protocol series, following up on last year’s Prudence. This time, in addition to the usual silliness I adore, we also get some bittersweet moments as Prudence Alessandra Maccon Akeldama -  or Rue to her friends - faces serious issues with her birth par ...

Prudence

I’m a huge fan of Gail Carriger’s steampunk novels and was sad when her Parasol Protectorate series ended in 2012 with Timeless. Well, I’m sad no longer! Prudence picks up several decades after the previous series ended and stars Alexia Maccon’s daughter, Prudence. It took just minutes to ...

Soulless

The Parasol Protectorate? How cool is that for a series title? Soulless, author Gail Carriger’s impressive debut and the first entry in that delightfully titled series, is almost equal parts comedy of manners, alternate reality, steampunk, paranormal, and romance. And, just to get it out of the ...
