Soulless (Parasol Protectorate #1) by Gail Carriger

 

Alexia Tarabotti is soulless, a spinster, and half Italian–which is the worst characteristic according toparasol

the late 1800s socialites in London’s high society. Alexia spends late nights wielding her parasol while visiting her dear friend, Lord Akeldama, a flamboyantly rove vampire and failing miserably at avoiding Lord Maccon (appaling,loud, messy, gorgeous, and werewolf). Select supernaturals are missing and others unknown are coming into being. With the soulless ability to negate supernatural powers, Alexia is a prime target.

 

Ms. Carriger delivers an intense, romantic, witty novel that incorporates proper London etiquette and collides with steam-punk interventions and the animalistic urges of the supernatural. This is a great read and I could not put it down.

Librarian’s note:

I loved this book too, and the rest of the series. Gail Carriger also has a YA series that starts with Etiquette & Espionage
