Faint spine creases and edgewear. A lovely copy of a fun book originally published in this mass market paperback format.; Werewolves, vampires, and a preternatural spinster that can negate supernatural powers in a comedy of manners set in a version of Victorian England that has dirigibles and lots of tea-drinking of course! The first volume in this entertaining series won an ALA ALEX award.
; 'Alexia Tarabotti is laboring under a great many social tribulations. First, she has no soul. Second, she's a spinster whose father is both Italian and dead. Third, she was rudely attacked by a vampire, breaking all standards of social etiquette.
Where to go from there? From bad to worse apparently, for Alexia accidentally kills the vampire -- and then the appalling Lord Maccon (loud, messy, gorgeous, and werewolf) is sent by Queen Victoria to investigate.' Image is actual copy on offer.
