Soulless - Gail Carriger, Gail Carriger
I have no idea why I didn’t start this book sooner…. I absolutely loved the characters and the world.

First I want to state that I want a parasol like Alexia’s. It’s totally bad ass. I love Lord Alkedema. He’s so funny, and gets to the point in a round about way. And there’s always Lord Maccon. I mean hello Scottish accent, sexy beast, all of the above. He’s amazing. All of the characters are witty, forces to be reckoned with, and don’t stand down. They tend to put themselves in the middle of crazy predicaments.

This world is awesome. Paranormals are known to humans. They even have their own government type agency. And I love that this takes place in Victorian London. This is a favorite time period of mine. There are so many things that go wrong with these characters, but they manage to pull through for each other whenever they need to. My favorite aspect is the tension between Alexia and Lord Maccon. These two crack me up with how they interact with each other.

I was impressed with the narrator. She did an amazing job with all of the voices, and I can’t wait to keep reading this series.
