Book Thoughts: Soulless

If you're looking for a light, fun, steampunky paranormal romance/adventure set in 19th century London where Werewolves, Vampires and even Ghosts are a normal part of high society and the main character is wonderfully spunky, this is the book for you.

To be honest, I found myself a little irritated by the notions of proper etiquette and her being a 'spinster' and un-marriageable because of her Italian heritage and strong personality (damn my modern mindset!), but there was an authenticity to the time period with that mindset that made up for it.

Keep in mind, this is very much an adult book in terms of the romance content, though it's thankfully not something that is focused on too much and therefore doesn't detract from the story itself (*cough*Laurell K. Hamilton*cough*).
