Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
First Line: Miss Alexia Tarabotti was not enjoying her evening.
Gail Carriger’s characters are so rich and vibrant that you can almost reach out and touch them. The alternate England that she has created is just so clever and fun. There was even the occasional tear that was shed….from laughing at some humorous scene between Lord Maccon and Miss Tarabotti. And have I mentioned the very swoon worthiness of a certain Lord Maccon? Alexia is a smart, feisty & very proper young lady who somehow finds herself attracting trouble. Ok…so she often goes out searching for said trouble. But you can’t blame her really – not when those around her don’t always listen to her because of her sex.
There are so many rich layers in Soulless that I find it impossible to cover them all. Just know that this book has something for everyone. There is romance, history (albeit of the alternate variety), vampires, werewolves, mystery, evil plots, dirigibles, and of course….parasols. All mix together to make a fantastic world and a most entertaining read. I can not wait to read Changeless now.
