I am returning with my new feature... Why I love which takes place on Wednesdays. Today's proclamation of love concerns our Favorite Character
Why I Love...Alexia Tarabotti (from the Parasol Protectorate)
I need to go back and look at my comment so I can find the wonderful commenter that recommended this book to me.  I can't wait to continue with this series.  Review to come tomorrow :)
This series takes place in a Victorian steampunk age.  I love love Alexia Tarabotti!  Talk about a bundle of contradictions.  Alexia is an old-maid who adheres to society social expectations while breaking all the rules at the same time.  It's wonderful because I never really know what she will do.  I love how Alexia cares about etiquette and is continuously amused or annoyed by Lord Maccon (who is quite swoonworthy in my honest opinion) lack of etiquette (he is a werewolf after all...who can blame him).  At the same time, she is quick to sneak out to vampire hives and gallivant about at night.  Not very Victorian and I love it!  Oh and of course is witty, which is kind of a requirement to be one of my favorite characters.  Oh I have to stop now because the review is still to come.  Long story short... Alexia is a witty ball of contradictions and I LOVES it!
