free book! Soulless by Gail Carriger

So sometimes I do this thing where I don’t pay attention and accidentally buy two of the same book from amazon. Like, I click it twice or something. And if I were paying attention when I hit “Submit Order” I would notice the 2 next to the book, but yeah, I don’t.

So anyway, now I have two copies of Gail Carriger’s Soulless. I could just return it, but I decided to give it away instead. Because hey. Why not?



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? 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.

Feel free to judge me for thinking this book sounds like the shit. I make no apologies.

So, hm, what should the question be this time? AH! A simple one:

Werewolves or Vampires?

Post your answer in the comments to enter the drawing!

I will randomly choose a name* sometime next week. I pay shipping!

*I mean it’s not totally random. If your name is something like Cillian Murphy or David Tennant, you will probably win.

  1. WEREWOLVES. Who wants a monster to look all dainty and proper? Give me snarling, ferocious, terrifying unleashed evil. Give me wild screaming death. Not this pseudo-sexy bite/sex metaphor.

    If some mythical monster’s going to take me down, I want to see some intestines flinging.

  2. ZOMBIES. I know that wasn’t an option, but still.

    By the way, I’m in australia, so I don’t know if I’m allowed to win. But still, your blog is awesome.

  3. I’m going to be honest guys, Steph wins for best answer so far. :)

    I’m pretty sure I can afford to send one tiny book to Australia, Steph. I’ll enter your name!

    Thanks to everyone who’s commented so far!

  4. Vampires. Not because they’re extremely hot, but because the whole idea of redeeming or saving a soul that seems lost and tormented just seems beautiful to me.


  5. vampires, natch. werewolves always strike me as the date-rapists of the supernatural world, whereas the vampires are like the stand-offish gay guy.
