Soulless: The Manga, Vol. 1 The Parasol Protectorate Paperback
Written by Gail Carriger
Adapted & illustrated by REM
Release date: March 1, 2012
Last year, I wrote about a deal for the Kindle ebook for Soulless, the first book in Gail Carriger‘s The Parasol Protectorate series. I had never heard of it, but two pages into the book’s online preview, I knew I’d love it. While this first book came out in 2009, a manga version of the novel, Soulless: The Manga, Vol. 1, was released today by Yen Press that’s a great adaptation for both fans of the series as well as manga enthusiasts.
Soulless takes place in Victorian England in a world where vampires, werewolves, and ghosts live amongst humans. Along with the supernatural and the regular humans are extraordinary people, like Alexia Tarabotti, an unmarried half-English half-Italian young woman who’s not only considered a spinster, but also a little bit odd. People in this uptight English society find Alexia unusual because of her intelligence as well as her Italian physical features and seemingly hot-blooded temperament. Little do they know that she’s what’s known as a preternatural; she has no soul, and when she comes into contact with the supernatural, they lose their powers.
The eBook deal of the day today for the Amazon Kindle is the 2009 steampunk paranormal romance Soulless, the first book in the The Parasol Protectorate series, by Gail Carriger for only $1.99 (that’s 75% off the list price of $7.99).
Note, this deal is valid only for today, Tuesday, September 13, 2011, until midnight PST.
If you’d like to own a physical copy of Soulless, the book is also available in paperback for $7.99. The paperback edition is currently part of Amazon’s 4-for-3 promotion, where you can purchase four select items for the price of three (see the Special Offers and Product Promotions section of the product page).
