I haven't posted for a while so I decided to post a review of a fantastic book I have read recently. I recently finished Soulless By Gail Carriger (The Parasol Protectorate, #1) and LOVED IT. I was hooked on from the first page, definitely worth reading. Fantastic plot, hilarious charcters and I loved the 1800's setting. Very different from anything I have ever read which is probably why I found so memorable. You don't find many stories set in the 1800's about werewolves & vampires ! Again, fantasic, funny, enjoyable read!


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?
Badass Bookie xx
