Alexia Tarabotti is laboring 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? 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.
Gail Carriger's Parasol Protectorate series is an entertaining mix of both paranormal and historical romance. When a vampire attacks Alexia Tarabotti, she defends herself, accidentally murdering her attacker. Now she is under suspicion, and a handsome werewolf has been sent to investigate. London's high society is in an uproar, as more vampires turn up missing. Alexia's only choice is to use her own strange powers to protect herself. Selected by Publishers Weekly as one of the 100 Best Books of 2009.
