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.
Soulless was my second read in the Steampunk sub-genre. I enjoyed the book for many reasons first the synopsis itself is very intriguing and different from anything else. The way that the description is set up on the back of the book the reader immediately gets a sense of the style in which the book is written. Secondly it was hilarious and thirdly it was a mixture of all the things I love in a paranormal read. There are the werewolves(strong and sexy just how I like’ em),The vampires (so mysterious) ghosts (who doesn’t love a good ghost in a story to add that spooky feeling) and lastly something completely new to me and as far as I know the Paranormal Genre its self, something called a Preternatural, someone born with no soul.
Miss Alexia Tarabotti is just that a someone born with out a soul who has the power to touch a Paranormal creature and turn them back into a human. I loved going on this adventure with her as she changed from the beginning of the book to the end learning to embrace herself as she is. Something we all struggle with. I found her character real and entertaining. She’s smart and not afraid to kick some butt.
Gail Carrigers Soulless series has been compared as something Jane Austen might write and I really agree. Its entertaining, you grow to love the characters, laugh when they laugh and cry when they cry, you even want to yell at them sometimes. I will give a slight warning that the book was slow at the beginning and for me a little in the middle just as the climax was happening. It would feel as if the characters were sitting around in a room waiting for about 20 pages, but soon what we had all been waiting for would happen and the story would continue. If you are a person who can not stand any slow points in a book’s plot I would suggest borrowing this first book and if you grow to love Alexia as I did you can buy the rest. For others that are huge fans of the paranormal and of Jane Austen and love a good story that combines Victorian England, parasols and the Paranormal I recommend that you go out and Buy this wonderful book. Now I’m off to finish the second book Changeless!
Peace!
