WHODUNITS with DONUTS Book Club at Walkertown
Join the Whodunits - Crime Solvers Book Club as we eat donuts and discuss Soulless: the Parasol Protectorate
by Gail Carriger. Dirigibles, glassicals, and parasols…Oh my! Set in London during the late 19th-century, spinster Alexia Tarabotti has the misfortune of being both Italian and soulless. Despite werewolves, vampires and ghosts being part of high society, being a preternatural and female, is a rarity indeed. Soullessness gives Alexia the ability to counteract supernatural powers; thus it is imperative for the supernatural world to keep her “condition” secret. Her secret is put in jeopardy, however, when she’s rudely attacked by a vampire, at a party, no less. Without proper introductions, Alexia accidently kills the vampire, which results in Lord Conall Maccon’s, London’s Alpha-werewolf and government official, to be sent in to investigate. Naturally the two despise each other, but they must work together to solve a mystery of supernatural proportions. Witty dialogue, outrageous characters, and steampunk gadgetry makes this debut novel an exhilarating read.
All are welcome to join us.
