    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

    The Parasol Protectorate series is a great find; well-crafted and clever. I immediately went on through all four books and enjoyed them all. (Five is not on Audible yet.) The narrator is excellent and definitely adds to the experience of the story and the character depth. The preternatural heroine Alexia Tarabotti has the perfect amount of self-possession and propriety for a soul-sucker and the setting is turn of the century in socially progressive London where supernaturals are not only accepted as part of daily life but are often leaders of fashion and social trends. I particularly enjoyed the over-the-top Lord Akeldama. Readers beware that Book 2 Changeless ends on an unnecessarily high cliff and requires immediately going on to Book 3, Blameless.
