Review: Soulless by Gail Carriger

Soulless (Parasol Protectorate, #1)Soulless by Gail Carriger
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Cute and clever. Paranormal steampunk.
This book was recommended to me by a friend and I have to say I truly enjoyed it. The book is set in an alternate reality Victorian England (about mid 1800s) where werewolves and vampires are a part of society. They exist and so does the etiquette on dealing with them.
And as they exist, so does their opposite; people whose touch cancel out their supernatural powers. These people are known as preternaturals or soulless. Our fearless heroine (and spinster having reach early twenties without marrying) Alexia is such a soulless. This doesn't stop a certain supernatural from being romantically interested in her and it doesn't stop her from getting in the middle of some supernatural troubles.
Alexia is a strong woman who isn't going to let a little thing like having no soul stop her from saving society or setting it on its ear.
