This was a delight to read. I just fell in love with the characters and it is easy to see that Ms. Carriger loves them as well. Most books I read, don't have me blushing several times in a single chapter, but the relationship between Alexia and Lord Maccon is well developed and certainly passionate. I certainlly can't wait to get started on Changeless.
I find that I really like the writing of Ms. Carriger, however a word of caution, one may need to break out a dictionary. She does a beautiful job with increasing one's vocabulary with Queen's English.
