Ms. Carriger began writing in order to cope with being raised in obscurity by an expatriate Brit and an incurable curmudgeon. She escaped small town life and inadvertently acquired several degrees in Higher Learning. Ms. Carriger then traveled the historic cities of Europe, subsisting entirely on biscuits secreted in her handbag. She now resides in the Colonies, surrounded by a harem of Armenian lovers, where she insists on tea imported directly from London and cats that pee into toilets. She is fond of teeny tiny hats and tropical fruit. Soulless is her first book.

Ten pages of bad prose is more than enough for me, thank you. The other reviews don't indicate any good reason to stick it out.

Series Info/Source: This is the third book in the Tinkered Stars series. I bought this on ebook for my Kindle.

Thoughts: This was a spectacular conclusion to this series. I absolutely loved the story and how everything tied up.

Phex, Missit and their pantheons are invited to Kagee's home planet to perform in a brand new dome. Kagee is incredibly upset about this since his home world is better known for war than anything else. Meanwhile Phex and Missit are still trying to hide their relationship from the Dyesi pantheon and Missit's pantheon is falling apart.

This book was much better than the second book in the series and may even be better than the first book in this series (which I absolutely loved!). I loved learning more about the Dyesi and their culture. I also loved getting to journey to Kagee's home world and learn more about Kagee as well. The story in this book is so well done. In addition to journeying to new worlds, we start to gain a better understanding about how godhood works and what it is actually doing to the followers of these pantheons.

Then of course there is the relationship between Phex and Missit and how it affects their pantheons. I felt like Phex and MIssit as a couple had better balance in this book than they did in the second book and I enjoyed the scenes between them.

This book practically reads itself, I could not put it down. It was fun, intriguing and, at times, incredibly heart-wrenching.

My Summary (5/5): Overall this whole series was such a creative concept that is fascinating and well done. This book was the cherry on the sundae. The characters throughout are complex and intriguing. I enjoyed the world (universe?) building here and really loved how all the elements came together to form a story that was well-balanced, well paced, and completely engrossing. I am planning to pick up "Crudrat" and "The 5th Gender" to read as well, I cannot get enough of this world and hope to see more books set in it.

This was a fun book. I haven't read steampunk before so this was a change for me. The names were a bit challenging at first, but they grew on me. The heroine is quite the character and I look forward to continuing her adventures in the next book.
