Soulless
by Gail Carriger

I read this steampunk and paranormal romance novel because I something fun and fluffy, and Soulless did not disappoint. Maybe not great literature, but a fun and exciting read. The story is set in the later Victorian era and follows the adventures of Alexia Tarabotti, a smart, witty spinster who is a reare preternatural, or person without a soul. This does not render her undead, evil, or even amoral, just kind of lacking in the spiritual department. Her soulless state also allows her to neutralize the powers of werewolves, vampires, and the like with her touch. Which comes in handy when an ill-mannered vampire attacks her during a party. This event is the beginning of and adventure involving mad scientists, dilemmas of etiquette, and a romance with a high-ranking werewolf. While there's really nothing new under the sun here, it's all executed quite well. I especially liked that while our heroine is virginal and inexperienced, she is neither ill-informed nor lacking interest when it comes to the physical aspects of romance. I'm looking forward to continuing with the series.
