Firstly, Alexia Tarabotti has no soul. Secondly, she's a spinster whose father is both Italian and dead. Thirdly, she was rudely attacked by a vampire, breaking all standards of social etiquette.
With unexpected vampires appearing and expected vampires disappearing, everyone seems to believe Alexia responsible.
Can she figure out what is actually happening to London's high society? Who is the real enemy, and do they have treacle tart?

I was pretty excited about listening to this book. I had the series listed on goodreads for ages to read. My excitement was short lived however, I really couldn't get into the story line. I hated the way the main character is described and she had no personality to me. I also really hated the narration, I actually feel bad writing this but the voice was like nails on a chalkboard. All in all this was not for me.
One of my absolute favourite!
Very few books are as quirky and different as this one. The adventures of Amelia Peabody are in a similar style but without the fantasy.
Emily Gray does a great job of creating unique voices for the characters so when listening its so much easier and interesting... I particularly love Conall's voice.
Most of the book moved me to laughter, fantastic humour!
Read it, read the rest of the series, read all books by Gail Carriger
