this book has a little of everything for everyone--and Carriger ties it all together beautifully. there's dangerous mystery, paranormal creatures, an alternate-England setting, abundant humor, romance...this is the ultimate cross-over-genre book. (fantasy, romance, historical fiction, and mystery!! what's not to love??) And Carriger pulls everything off so well!
In a world full of supernaturals (werewolves and vampires) and humans, Alexia Tarabotti doesn't quite fit in. She is a preternatural, which means she has no soul.
Alexia is doomed to remain on the fringes of good society anyway. She is a spinster with far too much spunk, and, worse, she is half Italian. What proper English family would want her?
But Alexia isn't content to sit back and passively let life slip by. When she is bizarrely attacked by a vampire, she throws herself into solving the case with little regard for ettiquete or safety. Especially when she's around the infuriating, stubborn, and sexy Lord Maccon--the werewolf who is actually in charge of the case.
no doubt about it: Alexia's life is about to get very interesting.
