Today’s eBook Deal: Get SOULLESS (Parasol Protectorate #1) by Gail Carriger for only $1.99

Today only, you can get Soulless, the first book in Gail Crarriger’s Parasol Protectorate series, for only $1.99.

Here’s what it’s about:

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 the first book of the Parasol Protectorate series: a comedy of manners set in Victorian London, full of werewolves, vampires, dirigibles, and tea-drinking.

Get it for $1.99 today only at Amazon, Barnes and Noble or iTunes.

    A mostly enjoyable book. Though she writes the gay characters as bitterly stereotypical nelly queens. Every time they move they either prance or mince across the room. Not in one instance through the novel do they walk, dash, run, or crawl. Always with the mincing. It’s a rather homophobic perspective. And insulting.
