Aggeliki Obsolete I was also surprised to like the book so much. I expected to be bored or to be annoyed and pulled out of the story by anachronisms but Gail Carriger is a really good writer and researches her books well. I loved the first two and I already bought all the rest to read soon. Yay.

Tamahome Carriger is an archeologist.

Ed "WereDetective"? Do you mean "Werewolf-Detective"? The "were-" prefix means "man". (Sorry to get all pedantic on you.)

I met Gail Carriger at a SF book convention a couple years ago, and she was quite charming in person as well. I've been meaning to read these books ever since. Gail Carriger is a pseudonym, by the way.

Tamahome A WereDetective is human by day, and by night a hat and overcoat springs out of him.

Julie Davis My two daughters absolutely love these books. I couldn't get past the second chapter. Too many vampire/werewolf books in my recent reading history I think.

Oh they are cheesy and the romance parts are sily but it will be great for my virtual world book club because costumes!

This author also has a series, Finishing School, that one of my daughters likes where adolescent girls are sent off to finishing school ... to become spies. Set in the same universe I believe.

Indeed. See this interview with the author!

Tamahome Isn't that an oxymoron?

Yeah. This may approach a serious gender barrier.

Tamahome Maybe it's Kombucha tea.

Heh!

(But they should have used more manly teas, like Gunpowder or Russian Caravan.)

Rusalka Oh not to be taken seriously, at all.

And that's very sad if you can't read them Bryan. Because all my male friends who have read them rather enjoyed them for their silliness.
