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? Or 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.

One of my personal favourites, Soulless is the manga adaptation of the first three books of Gail Carriger's Parasol Protectorate series. This one ticks a lot of boxes: Victorian supernatural steampunk perfectly blended into a wonderfully funny on romantic story.

A comedy of manners featuring Alexia, a 26 year old spinster who’s lack of soul allows her to negate other people’s supernatural abilities. This one is a fun blend of steampunk, urban fantasy, regency romance, and P.G. Wodehouse comedy.
