Gail Carriger writes comedies of manners mixed with paranormal romance (and sexy queer joy as G L Carriger). Her books include the Parasol Protectorate, Custard Protocol, and Supernatural Society series for adults, and the Finishing School series for young adults. She is published in many languages and has over a dozen NYT bestsellers. She was once an archaeologist and is fond of shoes, octopuses, and tea.
"This intoxicatingly witty parody will appeal
to a wide cross-section of romance, fantasy and steampunk
Publishers Weekly, starred review (Soulless)
"Behind the delightful whimsy and snarky observations, there is a great deal of heart and soul..."
RT Book Reviews (Prudence)
"Overall, this standalone novella is a quick read, but packed with great characters, relationship depth, a bit of adventure, and a sweet and sexy romance."
Book Sojourner (Poison or Protect)
"Add in several delightful female friendships, a bit of drama and this is another delightful story from this world. All in all a rollicking fun time!"
For What It's Worth (Poison or Protect)
"Gail Carriger has the deft storytelling of Jones and the whimsy of Jasper Fforde. It's fun, fresh, witty, exciting, and is full of dastardly doings and an easy absurdity that leaves a smile on your face."
Publishers Weekly Galley Talk (Etiquette & Espionage)
"There is sexual wordplay but it's overall chaste until the end."
The Hedgehog Librarian (How to Marry a Werewolf)
