Settling into her new life as the Lady Woolsey, Alexia finds her days quite challenging. Whether it is a regiment of supernatural soldiers camped out on her front lawn or the demands of being the Queen’s “muhjah,” there never seems to be a want of new hurdles to overcome. But when stories of supernaturals rendered normal by some unknown force begin cropping up, Alexia has a rather serious mystery on her hands. Can she root out the cause of this phenomenon, which smacks of some larger plot at work?
I’m so sad the entirety of the Soulless series was not adapted into a manga.
Because Lady Maccon’s adventures are terrific. Granted, people are always trying to kill her, but then you can’t have so much power and no enemies.
In this volume, something catastrophic is happening. Supernatural creatures lose their *supernaturality* without any explanation.
So Lady Maccon sets off to Scotland to learn more about the problem at hand and possibly fix it.
I missed Lord Maccon in this book. For the majority of the story, he’s not with Lady Maccon. Fortunately, there are new characters presented, and I enjoyed getting to know them.
I’m in awe of REM’s artistic talent. This manga series is so beautifully illustrated. Not that this is a life goal of mine, but I do wish to draw like this artist does one day.
A bit slow, but thoroughly mysterious and intriguing. There aren’t many actions scenes, but the ones that are included are great.
What an ending! I must read the third (and last bouhoohoo) volume right this moment!
