Heartless - Gail Carriger Series Review:

Gail Carriger is the most unique author I've ever come across. Her style is truly unparalleled in all of Fictiondom. She has immense talent for turning even the most mundane of things into the epitome of sophistication. If it wasn't for her writing, I doubt I would ever enjoy these books.

The Parasol Protectorate has the most original cast of characters ever. None of the characters in this series even remotely resemble any other characters out there, except for maybe Lord Maccon. And I simply love the way all her characters talk, all proper and formal. Even the boring act of wearing a hat is transformed into a vital crisis when it comes to the Parasol Protectorate.

Speaking of characters, my number 1 favorite side character belongs to this very fascinating world created by Carriger - Lord Akeldama. His excessive use of endearments, his outrageous style of clothing, his fascination with gossip, his very, very eccentric personality in general, all make up the extremely complex and hilarious character that is Lord Akeldama. He is the reason I couldn't stop laughing throughout Heartless.
