5-star quick review: Poison or Protect (Gail Carriger)

poisonDelightfully deadly is correct, this book reminded me of why I loved Gail Carriger’s “Soulless” and the Parasol Protectorate books so much. Funny and caring, with characters that are completely competent and yet emotionally vulnerable, Poison or Protect is a wonderful romp. It is shorter than her other books, but still a complete and full story and thoroughly enjoyable. I enjoyed the nods to the locations and characters of the other series (LOVED seeing Lord Akeldama, always a favorite and perfect in every way), without leaning too heavily on them. Presha and Gavin are powerful, interesting characters all on their own. Can’t wait to see what else is in store for this new series!
