Ambush or Adore
Ambush or Adore | Gail Carriger
8 posts | 5 read | 1 to read
INTELLIGENCER
Agatha Woosmoss, the Wallflower, is the greatest intelligencer of her generation. And no one knows she exists. She has been invisible, capable, and cunning for well over four decades. Her greatest skill is in her ability to go forever unnoticed.
Except by one man.
VERSUS INTELLECTUAL
Pillover Plumleigh-Teignmott is a professor of ancient languages at Oxford University. He’s tried to ignore his training as an Evil Genius and live a quiet life away from politics and intrigue.
When an assignment goes horribly wrong, Agatha must hide and heal. So she goes to ground with the only person who’s always kept her safe, Pillover.
Can Pillover hold onto the deadly woman who specializes in getting away? Will Agatha realize that patience is indeed a virtue, and that perhaps it is good to be noticed by the one who waits?

Last story in Omnibus - Ambush or Adore weaves together Events of Finishing School Series all the way through to the end of Custard Protocol. I've been reading along the Overall Timeline. For now I'm pausing on Page 482 - Winter 1873 to read Meat Cute: The Hedgehog Incident and Parasol Protectorate Series. Will come back to this as I continue to reread entire Gail Carriger Parasolverse in Chronological Order. ⬇️

Crinoline_Laphroaig Subterranean Press Delightfully Deadly Omnibus is one the prettiest books on my Forever Shelf. I feel like I should read it while wearing those white gloves historians use when touching artifacts. Also I'm very happy with their Customer Service. My copy arrived with a bit of scuffying on the cover. I contacted them by email and within an hour I had new copy being dispatched to me. Along with a label to return the damaged one. ⬇️ 10mo
Crinoline_Laphroaig (Omnibus isn't in database.) After finishing reading I spent inordinate amount of time making notes on where parts of Ambush or Adore fit into other stories. I making a chart. #great2022parasolversereread 📚🫖☂️ 10mo

5/5⭐ I had to catch my breath with how achingly bittersweet individual lines and overall trajectories were in this book. I love Pillover and was so happy to have a book focused on him, including his sibling relationship with Dimity. #bookspinbingo

#OnThisDay 2020 I finished #great2020parasolversedoover

With Release of Ambush or Adore, I want to do it again. Since it weaves backstory into other books. I do love a Timeline Readalong.

Plus my Subterranean Press Delightfully Deadly Omnibus is supposed to be here in February. Hmm I might need to see if I can make this work with stuff I'm already planning on reading in 2022.🤔📝📚

A satisfying fan service novella that tells you what happens to two of the Finishing School characters over the course of about forty years. This really will only work for you have read the Finishing School series, and if you haven‘t also read the Custard Protocol books you will get some spoilers, but if you have it delivers everything you want. It had me in a blubbery mess for the last few chapters, but I‘m a good way.

I was up before the dawn to start reading. Laughed, Fangirl Squeed, & Cried. This is the most absolute beautiful thing Gail Carriger has ever written. You have to have read The Parasolverse to appreciate it's brilliance. Pure Fan Service. Round of spot the Wicker Chicken. Agatha and Pillover's story. And then she ties it up with a beautiful bow to include her San Andreas Shifters Series. Truly Fan Service. 🌙📖😭🫖🐔☂️💝
