Read in November, 2011

It is rare that I actually consider a book five stars, but this qualifies. It is a lovely Victorian-inspired piece, lightly Steampunk without going to heavy into the mechanical bits. The major love I have for it is the tone. It is snarky, cheerful, and utterly appropriate to the setting. The introspection during the make out scenes alone are worthy of stalking Ms. Carriger to sign inappropriate body parts. I absolutely loved it--the sex wasn't graphic but it didn't matter, it was sweet and funny and made me laugh. Likewise, the violence is glossed over in a way that makes it friendly to those squimish readers in my household.

I can say I want to re-read it because I've done three times now and I only read it a week ago. There is something about the main character that I absolutely fell in love with. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys humor mixed in with hunky werewolves, gay vampires, and a parasol that kicks as much ass as the main character.
