Waiting on Wednesday #34- Soulless, the Manga


Soulless: The Manga, Vol. #1 (The Parasol Protectorate Manga)Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Breaking the Spine where we show off books that we want to read but have not been published yet. 

Title:  Soulless: The Manga vol 1
Author: Gail Carriger & Rem
Release Date: 1 March 2011
Link to / Summary from Goodreads: 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. With unexpected vampires appearing and expected vampires disappearing, everyone seems to believe Alexia responsible. Can she figure out what is actually happening to London's high society? Or will her soulless ability to negate supernatural powers prove useful or just plain embarrassing? Finally, who is the real enemy, and do they have treacle tart?
Why I want it: I love the novels (vampires and werewolves prettily wrapped up in Victorian England), so when I heard that there would be a manga adaptation, I knew I had to read it. But, being me, I couldn’t buy the Yen Press magazine when it came out...so this will have to do. I’m also interested to see what Rem will do to the story, and what parts will be adapted.
PS. The final book in the Parasol Protectorate series, Timeless, will also release on this day.


What are YOU waiting on this week?
