Prudence (Book One of The Custard Protocol)
Prudence - Gail Carriger

In that way that two strong, bold personalities often have children that have wispy, paler personalities than themselves, Prudence is a pale imitation of Connel and Alexia Maccon in Soulless.

 

It's not for lack of trying, but Carriger's attempts at giving Prudence (Rue) her own eccentric personality just falls flat for me.  What felt like effortless eccentricity and resulting hilarity in Alexis feels forced in Rue.  What felt natural in Soulless feels affected in Prudence.

 

Still, it wasn't a bad read; if I hadn't read The Parasol Protectorate and The Finishing School series first, I'd likely have enjoyed this a lot more.  But even though we get to see the beloved cast of characters from TPP return, it's sadly just not the same.  It just never really came together for me.  It was o.k., but it was never fun.

Etiquette & Espionage - Gail Carriger

I picked this book up at my local Dollar Tree store. I had heard of this series before so when I saw it I just had to get it.

 

I have never read the Parasol Protectorate series so I was a bit unfamiliar with the world. Regardless, this book was still lot of fun. My only issue was that the ending felt rushed.

Oh my
Soulless - Gail Carriger

When I picked this book up, on my online library, I expected nothing really. I had this idea that this book was for the really young teenagers. Perhaps around 13-14 years old. It certainly is not... Just a warning. Now that that is out of the way let me try to express what I feel about this book. How it made me crack up with uncontrollably laughter because of the dry, sneaky comments, how I want a werewolf like Maccon just because he is so absolutely adorable, how Alexia never does what is expected of her and how she manages to piss everyone of around her while still being the cutest. I think it is pretty safe to say that I am excited for this book and how it turned out. So excited in fact that I can not wait for to read the next one!
