Strong female characters are always a penchant of mine and Alexia Tarabotti was everything I could hope for. No nonsense, even when faced with an angry supernatural, plenty of good logic and yet surprisingly emotional at times. I loved the take on the vampires and were creatures in these books, just different enough from the usual lore to make it fun for someone who's read a lot about vampires and werewolves. I especially loved the little bits of mystery, the adventure and the personal relationships. I immediately bought all the rest of the books and I keep looking for new ones.
Lovely, in every sense of the word! And four a book called Soulless, it's got quite a bit of heart (and soul).
