Jeg har kommet et par sider inn i boken Changeless av Gail Carriger, bok to i serien Parasol protectorate. Jeg elsket Soulless som var bok en, så nå skal jeg kose meg med Changeless litt etter litt (jeg leser nesten bare på bussen til og fra jobb).
Normally Alexia wasn’t given to such language or unadulterated violence, but circumstances seemed to warrant it. He was a werewolf and, without her touching him and canceling out his supernatural abilities, practically impossible to damage. Thus, she felt justified in clobbering him a couple of times for discipline’s sake.
Major Channing, shocked by a physical attack from an apparently defenseless housekeeper, shielded his head and then grabbed the parasol, using it to yank her toward him. Alexia lost her grip, and Major Channing stumbled back in possession of the accessory. He looked like he wanted to hit her back with it, which could have done Alexia some real damage, as she had no supernatural healing abilities at all. But instead, he tossed the parasol aside and made as if to slap her.
Jeg har ikke lest mye steampunk, men dette er morsomt; det er varulver, det er vampyrer, det er Alexia som er preternatural og mange underholdende karakterer 🙂
Har du lest bøker i steampunk-sjangeren? Hva ville du i så fall anbefalt?
