    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.

    Funny Origin Story - Fan service for Parasoleverse

    Wonderfully narrated and funny origin story for Alexia Tarabotti. I have listened to this several times with great amusement. The narration is read with enthusiasm, at a pace that is easy to understand and with good voices for each character. This short story really requires reading all of the Parasol Protectorate and Finishing School Series to understand all of the references. This was a treat for Ms Gail to release and have it recorded for fans. I love the Parasolverse audiobooks, they are great for commute traffic because they are entertaining and make me laugh even in the worst of traffic. I often buy both the print and audiobook versions because I know I will enjoy them.

    Delightful!

    The Parasol Protectorate is one of my all-time favorite novel series. I was so glad to see a prequel story that allowed me to revisit such an excellent setting. Alexia and Lord Maccon are wonderfully portrayed here, staying true to the characters that I first met in Soulless. The narrator does a wonderful job, as well. Her performance is perfect (pacing, voices, inflections) to the piece.

    loved it

    The narrator was delightful and matched the voice I read Gail's books with in my head. I have always wondered about the hedgehog incident and was not disappointed. Lovely piece of work on all counts. If you are new to Gail Carriger 's works, I strongly suggest you check out Soulless first.

    At last!

    Finally, the "Hedgehog Incident"! Anyone who has enjoyed the journey of Alexia and Connal will love this insight into their meeting. I thoroughly loved it. I was also extremely pleased to see who was responsible for the meeting! Well done!

    Emma Newman narrates this perfectly.

    Keep the audiobooks coming! I love all of them from Gail Carriger. I love how her stories connect and hearing more about the wicker chicken.

    Delicious little story for fans

    This lovely little bit of fan service is the story of how Alexia met Connell also we get to see Soap and the wicker chicken at work. Plus some hints for future novellas (what is R’s antecedents and who is W connections)

    So excited to finally know the whole story.

    I have read the Parasol Protectorate twice without knowing the full details of the “hedgehog incident.” I’m so glad I now have all of the details. I had no idea that Sophronia and Soap were involved. I loved reading about them again. I have grown very fond of both of them.

    This is a great read and I recommend it highly!

    Another glimpse of Soap & Sophronia

    It was so nice to see the wonderful Soap & Sophronia again - You must read the Finishing School series before this one. The meeting of the main couple was nice too. Its a cute, fill in the gap story for those who love this world she has created.

    cute, with inconsistencies

    2.5 Exactly as the title says, this is the 'meet cute' story of Alexia Tarabotti and Lord Maccon, and of course the previously referenced hedgehog. It's cute and funny, but a little more humor would have been nice. Also, I wish it had been longer. The narration was okay. <SPOILER> Oddly, in the author's note, the author thanks her beta readers for helping with continuity. Having just re-read 'Soulless', it is obvious that there are continuity issues. First off, in 'Soulless' Alexia has never seen a naked man, and now in this prequel she gets an eye full of Lord Maccon, and it is even repeated that her father's library didn't tell everything. Sloppy. Also, it is earlier stated that Alexia can neutralize supernaturals through clothing. Then in MC there is a whole scene between Alexia and her mother because she is not wearing her gloves and might inadvertently touch someone; the concern being that werewolves are expected at the party. Alexia's mother is not aware of her abilities in later novels. These issues aren't ruinous, but they are distracting. This was underwhelming.

    zu kurz

    Für eine so kurze Geschichte zu teuer. Es bestehen zudem Widersprüche zu den Lady Alexia Büchern. Dafür ist es sehr amüsant .

    Finally, the hedgehog makes his appearance.

    I laughed, I cried, I loved it!

    Brilliant (albeit too short) story, and very well narrated.

    Gewohnt großartig!

    Wie immer ein Genuss. Recht kurze Geschichte, aber Sprache und Witz sind einfach phänomenal! Phantastisch gelesen
