    Story
    (2544)

    Victorian romance mixes seamlessly with elegant prose and biting wit—and werewolves—in Gail Carriger’s delightful debut novel. Soulless introduces Alexia Tarabotti, a parasol-wielding Londoner getting dangerously close to spinster status. But there are more important things than finding a husband. For Alexia was born without a soul, giving her the ability to render any vampire or werewolf completely powerless.

    Story
    If you could sum up Soulless in three words, what would they be?

    Different, funny & twisted.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This was my first vampire novel and I love the way the writer put old London together with science and industry. She also altered general vampire and werewolf beliefs to fit her own story. Everything was so well done.


    What does Emily Gray bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Each narrator is very unique and Emily is a perfect narrator for this story. I had to get used to her speed, she is a little faster then I'm used to. But once I got into her rhythem it was very enjoyable. I'm going to download the next books in the Terrabotti sequence.

    Any additional comments?

    This novel is a bit more raunchy then romantic. There are multiple scenes throughout the book that are graphically sexual. There is also a bit of mystery in this book with makes a good story. The narrator is very good for this book and others written by Elizabeth Hoyt. Although her voice changes are primarily the same. When I listenened to book 2 of this series I was thinking of the hero from the first book. Perhaps I need to put some time in between each book.

  • What Happens in London

    Story
    (559)

    When Olivia Bevelstoke is told that her new neighbor may have killed his fiancée, she doesn't believe it for a second, but, still, how can she help spying on him, just to be sure? So she stakes out a spot near her bedroom window, cleverly concealed by curtains, watches, and waits . . . and discovers a most intriguing man, who is definitely up to something. Sir Harry Valentine works for the boring branch of the War Office, translating documents vital to national security.

    Donna says: "Brilliant"
    "Very much enjoyed this novel."

    What did you love best about What Happens in London?

    It was a good listen, and I'm glad I chose to add it to my library.


    What does Rosalyn Landor bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The narrator did a wonderful job of changing her voice for each character. It really made the book much more enjoyable. Her voice and speed are wonderful. Her pauses between paragraphs were sometimes a little long but forgivable.


    Any additional comments?

    The twist near the end was nice, but was bummed when it was so easily overcome. Perhaps that was the writers point but I suppose I thought it would be more.
