Soulless by Gail Carriger

First off, I love the way this author writes. It is so fun and witty. I also like how she just plops you down in the middle of a already formed relationship. I hate all the relationships that I have been reading about where it starts right when the book starts and 12 hours later they are in love forever. Soulless you get a peek of the relationship before the book starts, that it has been around for awhile, but things do progress faster during the book.

Alexia is a soulless spinster. She has dark skin, is Italian, has a big nose, a sharp tongue, and is very curvy. She attributes those characteristics to why she is a spinster, and she really doesn't mind. The beginning of the book has Alexia squared off with a vampire that doesn't seem to understand her soulless traits and Alexia must use her trusty parasol to ward off this vampire.

As the book progresses, you get to see what being soulless means and what it means to vampires and werewolves. Also, a mystery occurs in the book that the main character and the BUR have to figure out.

This is a great book and I can't wait to finish the series.
