Summary (Goodreads): In the delightfully wicked follow-up to Soulless, Alexia Tarabotti is entangled once more in Victorian London’s supernatural mysteries.
Alexia Tarabotti, the Lady Woolsey, awakens in the wee hours of the mid-afternoon to find her husband, who should be decently asleep like any normal werewolf, yelling at the top of his lungs. Then he disappears – leaving her to deal with a regiment of supernatural soldiers encamped on her doorstep, a plethora of exorcised ghosts, and an angry Queen Victoria.
But Alexia is armed with her trusty parasol, the latest fashions, and an arsenal of biting civility. Even when her investigations take her to Scotland, the backwater of ugly waistcoats, she is prepared: upending werewolf pack dynamics as only the soulless can.
She might even find time to track down her wayward husband, if she feels like it.
Review: I love this series. I cannot get enough of Gail’s wit and charming characters. This book did not disappoint and I look forward to reading the next in the series. There’s a great deal of intrigue in this book as in the first and has also added more steampunk. Though at times I felt the descriptions were a bit lengthy in certain parts, the double twist at the end entirely made up for it! I don’t want any spoilers here, so I’ll leave it at that!
