Soulless (The Parasol Protectorate, #1)Alexia Tarabotti is laboring under a great many social tribulations. First, she has no soul. Second, she's a spinster whose father is both Italian and dead. Third, she was rudely attacked by a vampire, breaking all standards of social etiquette. 

Where to go from there? From bad to worse apparently, for Alexia accidentally kills the vampire -- and then the appalling Lord Maccon (loud, messy, gorgeous, and werewolf) is sent by Queen Victoria to investigate. 

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? Will her soulless ability to negate supernatural powers prove useful or just plain embarrassing? Finally, who is the real enemy, and do they have treacle tart? (Summary from Goodreads)

My Review: I like this book. It is very different than those that I have been reading. It was a good change. Gail Carriger sure knows how to write. I like the banter between Alexia and Lord Maccon. I just liked them as characters a lot. Another book that I couldn't put down. Not sure if I would recommend it to everyone, only because there are two PG14ish parts. But I really liked it. Can't wait to read the second one!
