This book really messed with my head in the end! It's an amazing series, with characters that seem almost too real. I tried to pick up a book that I already owned before buying the next, but Gail Carriger's world won't let me go until everything from the last book is settled.
That said, it takes a truly excellent story with peerless narration to pull me in this far. I laughed and cried with Alexia, and I look forward to continuing the series.
It surprised me at every corner, made me giggle; an 'alternate history' victorian england, where werewolf's and vampires are common and part of society.
This is a very funny and different take on the eponymos vampire literature so popular today. It is sexy and funny as well as suspenseful.
Great voice characterizations, funny and intelligent emphasis is this readers strengths, bringing out the best in this book.
Yes, it had me wanting to know what happens next, since it is a detective or espionage story as well as a love story.
Most of the book is setting up the story and it really doesn't get good until the last quarter of the book. The first half of the book really feels like a waste of time
I was disappointed that just as the book was starting to have action and a progression in the storyline - it ended with an unresolved problem
Book 2 is just as good as book one, but the ending gave me mixed feelings. It also had me running to my computer to download the next in the series. I think if you enjoyed Soulless you're hooked for the entire series.
I love the humor in these books and I want all the clothes except Miss Hisselpenny’s of course. Lord Maccon is rapidly becoming my second favorite Scotsman second only to Jamie Frasier! There are great lines in this book too numerous to mention. I love Alexia’s wit and strength. This series has made it on my favorites list.
Narrator , Emily Gray does a great job with all the characterizations and accents I will definitely look for other books she has narrated and she is now on my list of favorite narrators.
my soul hurts right now from the cliffhanger. but totally worth it! great story, great narration. I love this world. it's steam punk style really comes to life. Alexia is a great character. I love her alpha attitude. seriously going to download the next book ASAP!!!!!
Now that the characters are better developed and Alexia's sense of humor shines through, this book became extremely entertaining. i highly recommend continuing with this series. I'm happily moving on to Book 3, Blameless!
Another highly enjoyable installment of Alexia's very eventful life. Many romantic interludes are pocketed among the search for the reason behind a plague of exorcism targeting the supernatural community. Very satisfying.
I really enjoy how the series get you involved with the main characters but also the surrounding characters as well and they all interact well as the series moves along but the surrounding stories do add to the joy of the series.
I ADORE Gail Carrier, her wit and humor is so great, and refreshing. She is my favorite Steampunk author, and knocks it out of the park in every book she writes. Lets just say this is not my first time devouring my way through this series.
