Publisher Description

From the comedic mind of New York Times best-seller Gail Carriger comes the much requested prequel short story to Soulless. Narrated by Emma Newman.

Alexia Tarabotti attends what appears to be a very dull London party, until the new werewolf Alpha turns up, is unconscionably rude to her, and sits on a hedgehog. 

Don't miss this charming novelette featuring the first encounter between the Parasolverse's most popular power couple, preternatural Alexia and supernatural Lord Conall Maccon. 

Look out for cheeky appearances from much beloved characters, not to mention the strategic application of a certain wicker chicken. 

Alexia has been described as Buffy the Vampire Slayer meets Jane Austen! 

A Note on Chronology

Set in the spring of 1872, this story occurs just prior to events chronicled in The Parasol Protectorate series (featuring Alexia and Conall) and after those in Defy or Defend

This is a quick listen at 9,000 words (about 15 printed pages) available in print only as part of the Fan Service omnibus. It is best heard if you are already familiar with Gail Carriger's gaslight universe and comedy of manners style, as it was written specifically with her fans in mind.

Meat Cute is very cute

This little story is adorable and everything I was hoping for from Alexia and Lord Maccon’s first meeting. More than I was hoping for, since we get a lovely little Sephronia/Soap snipped that I hadn’t dared hope for. All in all, I’m very grateful to Miss Gail for this release. <3
