Alexia Tarabotti is labouring 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? Or 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.

***Also available as a manga adaptation***

About the Author

Ms. Carriger began writing in order to cope with being raised in obscurity by an expatriate Brit and an incurable curmudgeon. She escaped small town life and inadvertently acquired several degrees in Higher Learning.

Industry Reviews

Delicious rapier wit that recalls Austen and P. G. Wodehouse - i09.com

Soulless has all the delicate charm of a Victorian parasol and all the wicked force of a Victorian parasol secretly weighted with brass shot and expertly wielded. Ravishing - Lev Grossman, author of THE MAGICIANS

Carriger debuts brilliantly with a blend of Victorian romance, screwball comedy of manners and alternate history . . . This intoxicatingly witty parody will appeal to a wide cross-section of romance, fantasy and steampunk fans - PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

Soulless is a potent cocktail of genres - fantasy, horror, steampunk, romance and comedy. It's light-hearted, escapist fodder . . . One is amused - SciFiNow

Funny, action-packed, sometimes raunchy, unashamedly fashion-conscious steampunk adventures - Trudi Canavan (SUNDAY TIMES bestselling author)
