Soulless (The Parasol Protectorate)

Soulless - Gail Carriger, Gail Carriger This reminded me of a Victorian Sookie Stackhouse, crossed with a bit of Austen. I haven't read the sequels yet, but it feels like the end of the first book would point the later ones in a substantially different direction. I think I'll enjoy those books more than I enjoyed this one, which felt like a launching of the series. Conveniently, I bought 1-3 in one big kindle file when they were on sale.
