Some New Steampunk Entertainment

DH ordered Soulless, the first book in The Parasol Protectorate Series, for me just before Christmas, so that I'd have something to read on our trip to Illinois. I liked it so much, that when we got back I went to the bookstore to buy Changeless, the next book in the series. I spent quite a bit of time searching the store, before asking a salesperson for help, because I really wasn't sure what genre it fit into. There is mystery, romance, vampires, werewolves, and a little steampunk, all beautifully blended together. As it turns out, it is shelved under "Sci-Fi/Fantacy".

I have really been enjoying the witty, but somewhat abrasive, main character in these books!

Here is a sample of the first book, a passage read aloud by the author:

I am currently more than halfway through Blameless, the third book in the series, and already looking forward to Heartless, which will be released July 1st.

Gail Carriger, the author of the books, has a wonderful website, that can be found here:

Two fun new music videos and how they were made (because I really like that sort of thing):

It is such a good series, I can't wait until Heartless comes out.
