Picked up Soulless this morning…

…I wanted to have something to read at the food court before I did my clothes shopping, I had heard some good things about Soulless (The Parasol Protectorate), and, well, it’s nice to have both the wherewithal and the opportunity to just buy a book and be able to read it on the spot. All in all, I liked it: the author has an ear for writing period dialogue, and she was gratifyingly familiar with the time period (mid Victorian; probably 1880s). The novel is alternate fantasy (not quite horror, despite the existence of vampires and werewolves*); I’m not going to give a review, because I’m bad at book reviews, but it was well worth at least one read, and I look forward to the sequel with some interest.

Plus, it has dirigibles.

*Probably because both were fully in Society, and quite keen to avoid being cut from it.
