Soulless: an Alexia Tarabotti novel by Gail Carriger
2010 Alex Award Winner!
Rude vampires are the worst. Alexia was just trying to enjoy her tea and instead had to stab a rude vampire with her parasol. Horrible! This little adult paperback novel cracked me up. What a refreshing vampire/werewolf read! Alexia has a love/hate relationship with a werewolf, is good friends with a gay vampire, has a mother and two sisters who wish she would marry and act like a good woman, and is considered a spinster by everyone in London. She's old (like 26!), unmarried, smart, mouthy, and just doesn't care too much about what people think about her. But, oh, she's awesome. Can't wait to read the sequel!
