Elizabeth asked:

Why is the title "Immaculate"? So... does the book imply that the main character was born without sin, or is this just yet again a misunderstanding of the term "immaculate conception"?

Elizabeth Burning with curiosity, I just went ahead and checked out the book from the library. So, Elizabeth-from-8-hours-ago, I can answer that question for you! The doctrine of immaculate conception is brought up in chapter 7. While researching her situation, asexually impregnated Mina learns the difference between the immaculate conception of Mary and the virginal conception of Jesus. So that's cleared up for her and the readers fairly early on. Now stop wasting time being a miserable pedant.
Jennifer Maloney It's referring to the doctrine of immaculate conception, which means having a baby without having had sex to conceive that baby. That's what the "immaculate" or pure part means - that she's still a virgin.
