Alexia Tarabotti is labouring under a great many social tribulations. First, she has no soul. Second, she's a spinster whose father is both Italian and dead. Third, she was rudely attacked by a vampire, breaking all standards of social etiquette.

Where to go from there From bad to worse apparently, for Alexia accidentally kills the vampire - and then the appalling Lord Maccon (loud, messy, gorgeous, and werewolf) is sent by Queen Victoria to investigate.

With unexpected vampires appearing and expected vampires disappearing, everyone seems to believe Alexia responsible. Can she figure out what is actually happening to London's high society Or will her soulless ability to negate supernatural powers prove useful or just plain embarrassing Finally, who is the real enemy, and do they have treacle tart

SOULLESS is a comedy of manners set in Victorian London: full of werewolves, vampires, dirigibles, and tea-drinking.

  • Thoroughly entertaining comedy of manners, parasols and werewolves

    by on

    Gail Carriger's delightfully witty 'Soulless' is a joy to read. Fun, fast-paced, and most certainly lascivious in parts, we follow Miss Alexia Tarabotti through a Victorian England populated by vampires, werewolves, ghosts.

    Alexia has a knack for trouble. Firstly, she's 'soulless'--a preternatual being lacking a soul, and thus able to cancel out the supernatural abilities of vampires and werewolves; secondly, she's a 26 year old spinster; and thirdly, she is most rudely attacked by, and accidently kills, a vampire at a ball. She could possibly live with this if it weren't for the abominable manners of said vampire.

    Thrust into adventure and intrigue, Miss Tarabotti must deal with mortal peril, the romantic overtures of a man who's both a werewolf AND scottish (appalling! though he is so very appealing) and make time for tea at the meantime.

    A thoroughly entertaining read for romance, steampunk, paranormal fans.
