I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.
A fabulous adventure! The names of the characters in this book alone are worth the read!
Ms. Carriger has a beautiful way of immediately putting you into the book - it was so easy to 'see' the story as I read the pages of the book - even the incredibly complicated layout of the school was visible to some degree in my minds eye.
The Parasol Protectorate character crossovers made getting to know this new world easier and more entertaining as well. I'm very intrigued by Mr. Niall too. Just a wonderful, fantastical adventure of a read all around. I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys some paranormal steampunk.
