Synopsis

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?

SOULLESS is a comedy of manners set in Victorian London: full of werewolves, vampires, dirigibles, and tea-drinking.

This book is in my TBR pile. I'm so anxious to read it, that it has it's own spot next to my desk with a few other top of my pile books.

I tell myself that I'm not actually a fan of vampire books, but then I recall my fascination with a TV series from the 60s called "Dark Shadows."

This one might be a good place to start!

My S book is hilariously funny and you can find it here:

We are overwhelmed with Vampire themes, and my kids have rules, (much like I had for them,) so I'll have to read this on the sly. Thanks it sound different. Maybe I'll slot it into my "Take a Chance Challenge".
