    One thought on “Poison or Protect”

    1. This was a lot a lot a lot of fun I m definitely going to need to look into this series or whatever this is.

    2. Poison or Protect is a stand alone romance set in the Parasol Protectorate world and although you can pick this book up even if you ve not read anything else by Gail Carriger fans of the series will love the chance to spot a few familiar faces Who would have guessed that I d come to like Preshea considering she was one of the bullies in the Finishing School books I have to admit I was a little nervous when I realised that she was going to be the heroine but I ended up really enjoying seeing a di [...]

    3. Steampunk is the shit I don t think anyone was much of a fan of Preshea in the Finishing School books However, here, readers are able to sympathize with a grown up Preshea I love how Gail Carriger has crafted her character in this short book Preshea is still true to her characterization from the previous series mean and manipulative and seemingly to not like anyone However, we also learn that she is lost and lonely and cynical of people for good reasons, too.Does it give her an excuse to be such [...]

    4. Favorite Quote Listen to me, my deadly little pearl Choose love Always choose love If the decision is between love and anything else, choose love I haven t read Gail Carriger in so long fail on my part I really enjoyed the first few Parasol Protectorate books, and then unfortunately, she fell off my radar Shame on me Poison or Protect is an adorable novella, that works well as a stand alone It falls in the paranormal steampunk historical genre and while it took me a few pages to settle into the [...]

    5. This is the beginning of a new series of romance novellas set in between the Finishing School series and the Parasol Protectorate series I was a little hesitant going into this one, because romance books aren t really my thing, and Preshea wasn t one of my favourite characters in the Finishing School series But it was a hell of a lot of fun, and lets us see a new period of the same world we know and love It s less paranormal than Carriger s other works, but it was so damned fun that I didn t rea [...]

    6. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I ended up LIKING Preshea After getting to know her in the Finishing School series of which I ve only read the first three, so things might have turned around in the final book , I simply didn t expect to be rooting so fiercely for her and Gavin to work things out.Let s face it, a woman who is known for her dead husbands isn t necessarily the type you d expect would fit so perfectly with a big, brawny Scotsman with an unexpectedly gentle side But they do SO [...]

    7. 4.5 stars Utterly delicious paranormal romance for adults, with lots of humor and fun and real heart underneath the witty, sparkling surface You could certainly read it without having read any of her other books on the other hand, having loathed Preshea as a side character in Carriger s YA books, it was actually really, really fun to see her all grown up and to shock myself by truly loving her as the heroine in this book I m so glad Carriger s writing these novellas, and I can t wait to read the [...]

    8. 4 Black Widow Stars for the story and narration.I m a fan of the romance subgenre of steampunk and had been wanting to try Gail Carriger s works for some time now So when I got the chance to review Poison or Protect, the debut of her new series, Delightfully Deadly, I jumped at the chance Set in the Spring of 1867 between Ms Carriger s previous two well known series about 10 years after the Finishing School Series a YA age romance and 10 years before Parisol Protectorates Series an adult age rom [...]

    9. 4.5 starsI have been a huge fan of Gail Carriger since reading Soulless way back in 2011 Carriger has a wonderful whit that translates so well onto the pages of her stories.When this short story came across my desk for review, I was thrilled to read another book set in the same world that Carriger has crafted so well Over the years she has written the Parasol Protectorate series which is of an adult read, and then the Finishing School series which is of a YA read but both are set in the same w [...]

    10. 4.5 starsSource e arc provided by the author in exchange for an honest reviewReview I ve always enjoyed Carriger s books They re whip smart and a witty blend of historical urban fantasy, steampunk and high tea.Poison or Protect kicks off anew spinoff series set in the spring of 1867 10 years after the Finishing School series YA and 10 years before the Parasol Protectorate series adult There is emphasis on the romance but it still has everything you love about her previous works.Preshea Villenti [...]

    11. I have said before that I think Gail Carriger s writing could not fully shine in her YA series, the happy I am to say that revisiting the characters when they are older works perfectly.I would never have thought I d like Preshea this much.This little novella was pure pleasure to read The main story is solid and round in its plot and characters It also leaves enough room for a steaming romance, which doesn t feel rushed or unbelievable as much as that is possible in the confines of 150 pages in [...]

    12. Well, goodness THAT was fun Delicious, a little pain Preshea is very unhappy , but steamy and a lovely end I m not usually one to read, er, erotic romances but it s Carriger Always choose love, Preshea And good lord, consent and mutual pleasure in sexual situations is, shall we say very, very nicely handled to sensual effect

    13. You can also find these and other reviews on our blog, Quest Reviews questreviewsHooray for my first 2016 release read I am officially a die hard fan of Gail Carriger s I started off this year by reading her Parasol Protectorate series, and followed up with her Finishing School series And I plan on reading her Custard Protocol series in July, which is when the second book Imprudence releases I will read ANYTHING this woman writes Also, not to toot my own horn, but she does follow me on Twitter a [...]

    14. The dedication to this book is For everyone one of my fans who reached out and said, If Gail Carriger writes it, I will read it Well, I ve not reached out, but I find I have become one of those fans Poison or Protect is a novella set in the same world as the Finishing School, Parasol Protectorate, and Custard Protocol series You see one or two familiar faces, but it stands separate from each perhaps only tentatively alone, as you still need to know some of the world details what a drone is, why [...]

    15. Cute, but too short for the love story it wanted to tell Pricey at 4 But if you loved her protectorate series, you can t miss it it s of that delicious same.I believe it s linked to her YA books no read.

    16. The best kind of present there is for bookworm like me, is when favourite author Gail Carriger surprises you with a shorter story set in the steam punk world one learned to love What made me connect from the beginning with her style is the fact that she chooses women to be her main characters, unapologetic strong women that know what they want to do and go ahead without caring what society says or wants them to be do Mind you, they do poses impecable manners which make them admirable to me I was [...]

    17. I read the first twenty percent or so in a happy rush it was fresh Fun Exciting Mysterious But all that wore off It s repetitive Falling flat Like a souffl Annoying Unexpectedly, shockingly disappointing.I determinedly kept picking it back up, reading a couple chapters, setting it down again I should like this, I thought Everyone likes Carriger s quirky tales Well, I don t I ve tried two of her books thus far It s just dry Dull Ugh I eventually became so disenchanted with the perfect perfectly c [...]

    18. I thoroughly enjoyed this book where the female is asked to be the leader in the 3 encounters that Preshea and Gavin have in this delightful self published book by Carriger I purchased this at an author talk at Mysterious Galaxy which I thoroughly enjoyed People who have read the Finishing School Quartet will recognize the heroine and the world Both Gavin Ruthven and Lady Preshea Villentia, the Mourning Star, are guests at a country house of an English lord and both have ulterior motives for bei [...]

    19. as i haven t read the finishing school series which are young adult fiction and look like a good time , i can t really comment on how this fits into the finishing school seriesever, i can say two things with certainty about Poison or Protect 1 it is SO not ya.2 gavin is ALL KINDS of swoon worthyrriger is a quirky, clever author and i always enjoy her books this short is all kinds of good times and i m looking forward to the next one.rating 3.5

    20. This is the authors first venture into erotic romance and as such is a bit unlike her previous works This book tries to straddle genres in that than the first half reads like many of the authors previous works and in the second half we get a steamy romance The two parts of the book feel like they were separately written almost as if each were intended to be their own books but then at the last minute were cobbled together into a longer work.

    21. I have to confess, I haven t read the other books set in this world I m not generally into steampunk historicals, and thought I wouldn t like them But I LOVED this novella, and clearly all my friends who said the books were amazing knew what they were talking about I have a lot of catching up to do

    22. It s Gail Carriger, enough said This novella reads like a conversation with a good friend, all that you need is a cup of your favorite tea I had two.

    23. A dangerously pleasurable interlude This novella was thoroughly enjoyable and a bit sinful, like the ideal tea time treat It s a different perspective to have a woman we would expect to fear or dislike as the heroine, but I loved it There s a touch of the supernatural and steampunk elements, but most of the story is about overcoming the pain of the past I highly recommend this addition to Carriger s world.

    24. So this was a pleasant and very fast to read novella solidly in the Gail Carriger voice, a nice frothy house party story It s not the way to get hooked on her don t read this first because nothing explains the role of vampires and werewolves in this version of Victorian England, for instance But it s a great extension if you already like her stories Although I don t recall either of these characters from her other books it s been awhile since I read them this reads like a happy ending for a form [...]
