Book Review: Soulless by Gail Carriger

I am about to send you over to the Book Butterfly so you can read her review in its entirety. Now why should I do this? It is not about a genra I normally read. But something caught me in her email that compelled me to go to her site and read it. I got so excited that I tweetered and facebooked it. Now you know how I am when I get excited about something...I have to share. You can click on the title of this posting to get to her site or you can click on her name but even if you don't think you would be interested, go read her entire posting about Soulless just for a giggle.
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 is being rudely attacked by a vampire to whom she has not been properly introduced!

Where to go from there? From bad to worse apparently, for Alexia accidentally kills the vampire, and 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? And who is the real enemy . . . and do they have treacle tart?

Now go read the review!
