A series for female fantasy fans that are looking for a stroke of ingenuity amongst the torrents of fanged fiction. SciFi Now on Heartless
Carriger's writing remains crisp and witty, and the affectionate banter between Lord and Lady Maccon will please series fans. Publisher's Weekly on Heartless
Carriger delivers surprises with every book, and this one is no exception. With action, intrigue, and above all, proper manners, this excellent series will have broad appeal to readers of steampunk, urban fantasy, and paranormal and historical romance. Library Journal on Heartless
Carriger has created a wonderfully detailed world that is just one step to the side of our own. sfrevu.com on Changeless
“Intoxicatingly witty.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Soulless is a character-driven romp with great worldbuilding and delicious rapier wit that recalls Austen and P.G. Wodehouse. io9.com on Soulless
“The fine British wit that sparkles on every page will have readers laughing out loud...These books just keep getting better and better.” School Library Journal
