Gail Carriger has gone ahead and written another fascinating novel, however, this time around there’s a bit of a twist. The Heroine’s Journey: For Writers, Readers, and Fans of Pop Culture is a more informative read, yet one you’re not going to want to miss out on.

The Heroine’s Journey is a novel that explores exactly that – starting with an explanation of what it is, how to identify it. And most importantly, discusses how she writes about the Heroine’s Journey.

If you’re a fan of any of her series, then the odds are good that you already have an idea exactly what we’re talking about here. It also probably means that you’ll be more inclined to read it, as you know full well the level of humor that will be written in to the pages.

“Don’t worry, more (considerably less flippant) definitions of both of these are yet to come.”

The Heroine’s Journey is an absolutely fascinating read, one that is rich with examples, explanations, and that classic Gail Carriger humor. Her cheek helps to tone down some of the harsher points, and overall she really does succeed in making this a fun read.

Honestly, I know that this novel is at least partially written and marketed for authors, but I really think that it is worth a read for everyone out there. The perspective is an important one, and on more than one occasion something just clicked in my head thanks to something she said.

It’s also undoubtedly a perfect reference novel as well, as Gail Carriger really did pack it full of information (again, it’s wrapped up in her humor, so it doesn’t feel overwhelming or dry in the least).
