The life of a spinster in Victorian London isn't an easy one on the best of days, but such a life becomes infinitely more complicated when said spinster is "soulless" - a preternatural bridging the gap between the natural and supernatural worlds. Miss Alexia Tarabotti has this unique distinction, and when she is assailed at a formal gathering by a rove vampire, an encounter that results in the death of the half-starved creature, her circumstances become exponentially more complicated indeed! Now caught up in an intrigue with life or death stakes, Alexia must rely on all her talents to outmatch the forces conspiring against her, but it may be the man who has caught her eye - Lord Conall Maccon - and their budding flirtation that truly drives her to her wit's end!
Settling into her new life as the Lady Woolsey, Alexia finds her days quite challenging. Whether it is a regiment of supernatural soldiers camped out on her front lawn or the demands of being the Queen’s “muhjah,” there never seems to be a want of new hurdles to overcome. But when stories of supernaturals rendered normal by some unknown force begin cropping up, Alexia has a rather serious mystery on her hands. Can she root out the cause of this phenomenon, which smacks of some larger plot at work?
Condemned by society and her werewolf husband due to a pregnancy she cannot explain, Alexia Maccon - preternatural, tea aficionado - seeks an explanation for this "infant inconvenience" so as to cleanse her sullied reputation and prove her fool of a husband wrong. Preternaturals are a rare breed and the only history of their kind lies in Italy with the Templars, a group that once partnered with preternaturals to hunt down werewolves and vampires. Will Alexia find an explanation for her impossible offspring? Or do the Templars have other plans for the curious "Soulless One"?
Opinião: 1°; 2°; 3° livros da adaptação para manga da série Parasol protectorate. Talvez se. não tivesse lido a série no seu formato normal, tivesse gostado mais. Isto é uma adaptação, eu sei que não é possível colocar tudo, mas existem certas informações que a meu ver explicam muitos dos cenários, e que aqui não existem. Foi dado mais destaque ao romance, a intriga é menos explorada. Imaginava os personagens algo diferentes. Adorei os desenhos, mas teria preferido ler da forma tradicional. Adorei o humor das cenas. E tenho que reconhecer o trabalho da Rem que é bastante bom, acabei por gostar do resultado. Podem ver aqui as opiniões aos livros 2 e 3 : Sans forme; Sans honte
Nota: 3,75 /5
