Soulless by Gail Carriger
Description from the Author’s website:
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 is being rudely attacked by a vampire to whom she has not been properly introduced! Where to go from there? From bad to worse apparently, for Alexia accidentally kills the vampire, and 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? Will her soulless ability to negate supernatural powers prove useful or just plain embarrassing? Who is the real enemy, and do they have treacle tart?

Soulless tells the story of Alexia, a soulless spinster who lives in a world of vampires and werewolves with her mother and step-sisters. She has the ability to neutralize the powers of other supernaturals with a touch.
Alexia is really funny and intelligent and gets involved with a police case investigating missing vampires. There are also a great cast of supporting characters in the book, as well as some romance.
This book is a great start to a new series – and I can’t wait for the next book!
