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? 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.

NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Gail Carriger writes to cope with being raised in obscurity by an expatriate Brit and an incurable curmudgeon. She survived her early years by reading most of her local library and memorising Greek battles. Eventually, she escaped small town life and inadvertently acquired several degrees in Higher Learning. In pursuit of further finishing, Ms Carriger travelled the historic cities of Europe, subsisting entirely on biscuits secreted in her handbag. She now resides in the Colonies, surrounded by fantastic shoes, where she insists on tea imported from London.

Customer Reviews

I have long been a fan of graphic novels and, to a lesser degree, manga. So when I heard that Soulless would be produced as a manga, I was intrigued. After getting my hands on a copy, I can say I'm impressed, both by how well the text translated over to manga and by the art. To say REM's work is incredible is an understatement. The expressiveness of the characters, the Victorian setting and costumes, the backgrounds - absolutely breathtaking. Condensing the book into a manga couldn't have been easy, but the volume easily tells the story without leaving out anything vitally important. Manga wouldn't be manga with certain overtones, but I think REM kept it extremely tasteful and in line with Carriger's books. I definitely recommend this to any manga or Parasol Protectorate fan. It's top notch!
