Like I said in the discussion your latest book buy, it is hard to concentrate on the book due to personal circumstances but I keep picking it up and reading it and I am loving it. It is just as good as the other ones if not better. It also makes me very curious about the spin off series (do you call it that with books or is that just with tv-series) she is writing about (view spoiler) that could be just as much fun reading as this series is.

I finished it and wow what an ending to a terrific series! Definitely something I am going to reread at some future date to get all the intricacies.
I loved it!!! The humor, the mystery, the romance, the oh no this is not happening moments, everything.
Claudia you definitely want to read this as soon as you get it! Can't wait to discuss it with you!

I've just completed Soulless. I owe a huge thank you to Claudia for nominating the author and then pointing us to Loot for the special. Also thanks to everybody who voted for her since you have just introduced me to such a fun author!

In an interview Gail Carriger lists the most important authors who influenced her work as Jane Austen, Gerald Durrell and PG Wodehouse. So I also owe a thank you to my mother who introduced me to all of them in my teens. I have a nearly complete set of Gerald Durrell's books and a handful of Wodehouses lurking about.

I personally would describe Soulless as a mixture of Georgette Heyer (another bookshelf full in my house)/PG Wodehouse and Terry Pratchett. I had an absolute romp reading the book.

So now I have to get my hands on the next one...

The whole series is great! I read the last book in this series less then a month ago and I must say it is a great disappointment that it was the last, because the whole series is great and I wish there was more. I want to know what happens next to my beloved characters. I can't wait for the spin-off series and in the meantime will look for other works by her, because I just love the way she writes.
I hope you will get the other books soon and that you have as much fun reading them as I had.
