it was amazing
bookshelves: paranormal-romance, steampunk
Read from April 14 to 22, 2012

This is my new favorite series (besides Harry Potter, of course). It's hilarious, charming and Alexia Tarabotti is the best female character I've ever known! Set in Victorian London, this steampunk world is incorporating the supernaturals into every day (or night) London society. Hilarity ensues as Alexia, a spinster, becomes the center of all that is to-do in society - with her ever-present parasol!
