Say something about yourself!
An old world take on a flirty and fun romance with a touch of violence.
Oh gosh I wouldn't want to give anything away!
The different voices in this audio book have been incredibly entertaining and her accents are wonderful!
The first time he kissed her. :)
I absolutely love this book! I can't wait to listen to the second book!
Sorry, haven't read the printed edition.
A most memorable moment was when Alexia's family confront her in the parlor.
She injects the right amount of interest and character to the story.
I got this book because it sounded interesting in the summary, and I would get others in the series, I enjoyed this one so much.
Many of the reviews state how good this book is. I loved it and couldn't get enough. What I wanted to let people know is the Actor who narrated the store is truly excellent. The way she makes different voices and accents works very well. I started listening more than reading mainly to hear her rendition of the book. I have plowed through this book ( that could stand alone) and rushed into the second and then third book. The characters "voices" are like familiar friends. The book & Narrator is an excellent fit.
The Dragon Mother
When this first started out I wasn't too sure I was going to like it. But as the story continued, I liked it more and more. The book was set in old England and the reader (Emily Gray) gave a good English accent the English folks and even did a good job on the Scottish accent for the Lord of Werewolves, Lord Maccon.
Even though this book was a Paranormal Romance, there was more story than sex so it made this story doubly enjoyable for me. The steamy romance was well done and not overly described in such a way that made you feel like you were reading porn.
The reviews were so mixed on this one I almost I almost didn't get it, but I would of missed out on a really great story. It was the reference to Amelia Peabody that sold me. I love those stories and I wanted something fun and light hearted. PLUS finally a book with a werewolf as a main character! The tempo is a bit off in some area's but not enough for me to really care, I can put two and two together.
Anyone who like humor, whit and the supernatural should give this a listen!
My reading and listening tastes are eclectic.
Okay, first this is a wonderfully written, fantastically imagined steam punk novel. The world may be based on the Victorian Age, but it is way beyond anything Victoria knew! Gail Carriger writes a great story that turns several ideas on their head. The whole series is just fascinating! Emily Gray narrates the tale very well. Give this a try. It is really hard not to laugh out loud while listening though, so be careful.
The author tries to impart the British hyper- uptight era by constantly using proper names of most characters, espcially "Miss Tarabotti." While this is certainly understandable during the passages in which the characters are conversing, it becomes plain annoying and tiresome throughout the entire novel since it is written in the third person.I think Alexia could have used a bit more exploration and character development.
Pretty much expected it and was not disappointed. Fun twist in the characters ultimate "celebration."
The British accent was grating.
Not unless there is some unresolved issue about her "soulless" state and whether it changes given her new, romantic situation.
Hilarious. Proper. Demons.
Alexia Tarabotti -- a delightful mix of proper and unconventional perspectives.
Her reading increases the entertainment factor by many times: accents, inflections, pauses & all.
Interesting combination of historical elements and fantasy
Great voice and treatment of characters
You're committing to the whole series. This is one of those new books that is written to be part of a set - not a self contained story. But the series is quite fun.
Witty, Fun, Exciting
I don't think I've read a book like Soulless before.

I loved this book! It was funny and exciting, had a bit of mystery, and a romance to boot! I don't normally like things set too far in the past, but this book was awesome. The narrator was awesome too! Every time I think of Miss. Tarabotti, I hear her voice. I definitely reccomend this book!
