Fantasy. Fiction. Romance. Historical Fiction. HTML:Buffy meets Jane Austen in the first book of this wickedly funny NYT bestselling series about a young woman whose brush with the supernatural leads to a deadly investigation of London's high society.
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 the first book of the Parasol Protectorate series: a comedy of manners set in Victorian London, full of werewolves, vampires, dirigibles, and tea-drinki

    Crocodile on the Sandbank de Elizabeth Peters (nessreader, lquilter)
    nessreader: The heroine of Soulless has a similar outlook to early Amelia Peabody (but I should warn that the Peabody series is cosy crime/romance, with no supernatural element while Soulless is gleeful fantasy) Both have strong willed on-the-shelf spinsters who are active protagonists in their story.… (més)
    lquilter: Without knowing, I'd imagine that Gail Carriger had read Elizabeth Peters' Amelia Peabody series (beginning with Crocodile on the Sandbank) before writing Blameless (et seq). Similar era, similarly cranky and forthright spinster protagonist, similar sort of love affair, similar witty dialog and observations. The Amelia Peabody books are, of course, "straight" historical mystery, without the steampunk elements of Carriger's series, but I imagine that Carriger fans who read out-of-genre also will enjoy the Peters' series. Similarly, Peters fans who like SF, steampunk, or vampires/werewolves, might enjoy the Carriger series.… (més)

    Sorcery and Cecelia, or, The Enchanted Chocolate Pot de Patricia C. Wrede (kiesa)
    kiesa: Sorcery and Cecelia is a young adult novel but aspects of Soulless reminded me of it.

    Moonshine de Alaya Johnson (Mumugrrl, MyriadBooks)
    Mumugrrl: Both books are set in urban, alternative realities, with humans openly interacting with preternatural society. Both have great strong heroines.

Same universe as Gail Carriger's YA book Etiquette & Espionage, I enjoyed returning to this world (finally got back to this, after almost 2 years!), with some more adult, romantic themes.

Steampunk Victorian mixed with supernatural elements of werewolves, vampires, ghosts and preternaturals. I loved the main character/heroine, spinster Alexia Tarabotti, who is enmeshed in this supernatural world. While the supernatural is not totally secret to the rest of the world, her family, especially her mother and half-sisters, are more interested in the ton and making good matches.

Fabulous start to this Parasol Protectorate series. ( )

Very silly, but fun. ( )

This was a light paranormal/steampunk/Victorian mash up genre book that at heart is a historical romance with werewolves, vampires and other paranormal elements. No hassles, no angst. Just what I needed to get me back into a book binge. ( )

This was a witty, well-written book with characters that I absolutely adored. I'd had my eye on this book for a while, and when Barnes & Noble spotlighted Gail Carriger and offered the e-book of Soulless up for $0.99, I jumped all over it. My only complaint about the book (and Ms. Carriger's writing) is that she seemed to be a bit too wordy, especially at the beginning of the book. The dictionary on my nook has never been used so much. This seems to have tapered off as the book wore on, though. All-in-all, she's written a fantastic book with a likeable, smart, witty, independent heroine. ( )

Carriger debuts brilliantly with a blend of Victorian romance, screwball comedy of manners and alternate history.
