Alexia isn't like other women. She's soulless which means she can cancel out supernatural beings powers. That would really come in handy if you're attacked by a vampire or a werewolf. She's a spinster that has a mind of her own. I really love this character. Her best friend is Ivy who should totally have a spin off or a novella since she's a hoot.
This is a book that takes place in London during the 19th century. When I first read this book I had no clue what steampunk was. I didn't even know the word. This is steampunk with a supernatural twist to it. I know I wouldn't mind hanging out with Alexia and Ivy.
I can't escape series. On the bright side this is a short one that is complete. So give it a try if it sounds like something that would appeal to you. I've discovered some really great authors just roaming the aisles at the library. I just wish they all weren't part of series. It really does seem like there aren't any stand alone books since most seem to be either trilogies or regular series that go on and on and in some cases on to 39 books. Until next time read on my friends read on.
