Etiquette & Espionage and Curtsies & Conspiracies by Gail Carriger — Book Reviews — 15 Comments

  1. I love alternate histories and steam-punk, and these sound awesome. But I’m always a little nervous to pick up series though, especially YA series which tend to go on forever. So are these the only books in the series and do they end on cliffhangers!?

    • There are more books to come in the series. A wider story arc, having to do with the politics of the world, looks like it’s going to go through the whole series, but the books have reasonably satisfying endings themselves. I sometimes wait until a series is complete before picking up the first book. Carriger has a complete series for adults called the Parasol Protectorate. I’m going to try that next.

  3. I did read Carriger’s Parasol Protectorate (although I still have one left to conclude). I think I will probably pick this one up also as I do like GC’s writing style and her sense of humour.

    • Lynn,

      I read the first Parasol book and had such fun with it. I read some disturbing reviews of books two and three, however, and so decided to go to Heartless. Were you turned off by the second and third books? Sounds like the fourth book is back to the premise of the first, and, of course, anything with ghosts entices me.

      • I got a kick out of the first one because it was a kind of parody of romance novels, while still being satisfying as a romance novel. The others are less fun in that regard because we still keep Alexia as the heroine and the novels are more like adventure stories. Once I got over that disappointment, though, I am finding them a lot of fun. We went to Scotland in Book 2 and we’re off to Italy in Book 3.
