Publisher's Summary

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.

What the Critics Say

"Carriger debuts brilliantly with a blend of Victorian romance, screwball comedy of manners and alternate history....This intoxicatingly witty parody will appeal to a wide cross-section of romance, fantasy and steampunk fans." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Cute and clever"

    Slightly predictable but worthy of my time. It reminded me a lot of Jane Austen without being boring. I will read the next one.

    "What fun."

    I very much enjoyed this book and can't wait to start the next book. I had listened to the author's other series, finishing school, and preferred the other narrator, but Emily Gray did a fantastic job of not loosing my interest.

    I was a 'readaholic' for most of my life. I started crochet and other hobbies. That took away from my reading time. I discovered audio books at the library. That set me off. now, that I am older my eyes make it too difficult to read. So I now am a very diligent audio book listener!

    "Good reading"

    I enjoyed the story line and plot of this story. It moves along quickly. A little on the predictable side but done in a fun, entertaining and interesting way. I enjoyed all the characters. Many of the supporting characters are delightful. I hope these get bigger parts in other stories and books. I enjoyed reading of Emily Gray. Her reading gives character depth.

    "WOW....."
    What made the experience of listening to Soulless the most enjoyable?

    The characters are fantastic and the storyline is one of the best "supernatural" type stories I have read, ever.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Soulless?

    Too many to list, many laugh out loud moments throughout all of the books!!


    What about Emily Gray’s performance did you like?

    Each character comes alive and u know who is speaking just by listening.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes!

    "Light-hearted, frivolous entertainment"

    ...but not in a bad way!
    Soulless is steam-punky and fun. Neither the author nor the narrator takes themselves too seriously. The plot moves along well without being overly contrived. There's no attempt at commenting at the human condition, politics, etc. This is just a fun listen!

    "A Victorian Romp with Werewolves"

    The narrator was excellent in bringing out the many characters, Scots, French, Queen Victoria, evil scientists twittering sisters and scandalized mamas.

    I love the strong female lead, and the romance does not get in the way of the plot. Very well done!

    "GREAT FUN"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Soulless to be better than the print version?

    No idea. I have only listened to the audio version. I haven't read the print version.


    What other book might you compare Soulless to and why?

    Carriger's books are their own special category. They are witty, dry, sarcastic, silly, and Victorian. They are steampunk, full of vampires and werewolves, evil scientists, and funny machines. They are fun, fun, fun.


    Which character – as performed by Emily Gray – was your favorite?

    I enjoyed them all. The characters are great, Emily Gray doesn't completely transform between characters, but her voice is pleasing and keeps the flow the story. I liked her.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. I've listened to it more than once because it was quite nice.


    Any additional comments?

    I am looking forward to her other books. The Parasol Protectorate is great and I've just started the Finishing School books. They're excellent.

    "Formulaic"

    Will this book is overall rather enjoyable to read it follows a similar patter to many others I have read. Also the I know it is hard to write books with strong female charters, but I think this books tries a bit hard and over does it. But its not a bad book with an imaginative world, and some good humor. I probably will not read the rest of the series, but I do not regret giving it a try.
