Book 161: "Romancing the Inventor" By Gail Carriger
Author: Gail Carriger
Genre: Steampunk Urban Fantasy Novella
Read In: Nook ePub
So, my fellow readers, I'm sure you know that this is a novella by Gail Carriger. If you've been following me long, you know that means I most likely adored it. You are correct. Carriger strikes again; she has yet to disappoint me with one of her pieces, novel, short story, or novella. This novella is a long-awaited story featuring Genevieve Lefoux. Madam Lefoux is one of my favorite characters in The Parasol Protectorate and the Finishing School Series, so it is extra nice to get yet another glimpse of her later in life- after the Parasol Protectorate Series has ended. In fact, many of the beloved characters from The Parasol Protectorate make an appearance, including Alexia and Conall.
The protagonist of the story is a new character. This is a GBLTQ friendly story (obviously, since it focuses on Madame Lefoux). I liked this novella because I thought it much closer to her earlier style with The Parasol Protectorate.
I can't say much more, or I'll give too much away. But I once again stress that if you have not read Gail Carriger's books, READ THEM. They are wonderful.
