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)

    Delightfully fun steam punk romp. I very much enjoyed the language and setting. Interesting take on supernatural.

    "Good Set up for the Series"

    Although I truly enjoyed getting to know Alexis & her world, the story itself fell a little flat to me. The next book will hopefully do better as I plan to read on. The American accent also fell a little flat.

    Love historical and paranormal romances with smart, imperfect people who against all odds find love when they are not looking for it.

    Any additional comments?

    Intelligent, entertaining and unexpected. This is a fresh story with truly likable characters. Even the supporting characters are well developed. The humor made me laugh out loud. The story moves with smart dialogue. All set in a sexy romance with a lot of steampunk. Good story and a good narrator - most enjoyable.

    "Amazing Book"

    It is a book I have listened to over ten times and every time I get caught up in the plot and wishing for more which is sad because our adventures with alexia are over since prudence is out but read on and find your thrill to hear a tale with tales and fangs without glitter or abs a reimagination of the bite and bark stories. Enjoy for yourself.

    Story
    "Great quirky regency storyline!"

    I enjoyed the story overall with the spin on warewolf, vampires, and a living breathing antidote! A little quirky humor, a little kidnapping, a little zombi-ish behavor from one character so all in all it was great. Now on a personal note I found it a bit off with the overall story coming from the main heroine almost as a third person read...err...listen. When I am listening to the story I like to feel as though I'm a fly on the wall in the room with them, but it gets a bit distracting when every sent emails starts out as "Ms. So and so says". It's personal preference to feel like it doesn't carry the story as smoothly when you title every sentence by Whois speaking. 9 times out ten toucan follow the conversation and to whom is speaking but when the author notes that persons name every other sentence, it breaks the flow for me. Especially for regency period plots where everyone has a long-a** title / name. It can get a little confusing when I'm trying to remember who that person is, Lord of...Duke of ...
    But I did really enjoy the story!

    I like Fantasy & Science Fiction but not into Zombie. Due to Health issues, listen to Audiobooks/read ebooks where I can enlarge the print

    "Excellent"

    When this first came out i had to purchase the MP3 version on disk it was the only way to obtain it at the time in Australia. I have since downloaded it on Audible since the flaky Audible app does not like files that are less than one part these days.

    The story and Narration are a timeless classic you will enjoy time and time again. An excellent regency supernatural Regency fantasy

    "Steampunk Meets Polite Victorian Society"

    Excellent in every way. Plot, characters, biting humor... a great read and reread!

    My only thing is the way the narrator pronounces Akeldama. (A-KELL-Dah-Mah) However, she does correct herself in the next few books, so crisis averted!
