The Soulless One unmasks the presence of technologically superior soulless ones--spiritually bankrupt beings who migrated to earth thousands of years ago and subjugated a humanity entranced by their scientific wizardry. Fantasy? Not at all. Tablets from ancient Sumer have confirmed the story of "gods" who used genetic engineering to create humanlike life on earth, the progenitors of today's "mechanization man." This book strips the mask from these fallen ones and reveals their strategies: their political philosophies, their mechanized righteousness, their materialism, and their goals to dominate the body, mind, and soul of the children of God. It also reveals how you can break free from this programming and unlock the creative spark within yourself.

Third, she was rudely attacked by a vampire, breaking all standards of social etiquette. Where to go from there? From bad to worse apparently, for Alexia accidentally kills the vampire -- and then the appalling Lord Maccon (loud, messy, gorgeous, and werewolf) is sent by Queen Victoria to investigate. With unexpected vampires appearing and expected vampires disappearing, everyone seems to believe Alexia responsible. Can she figure out what is actually happening to London's high society? Will her soulless ability to negate supernatural powers prove useful or just plain embarrassing? Finally, who is the real enemy, and do they have treacle tart?

The life of a spinster in Victorian London isn't an easy one on the best of days, but such a life becomes infinitely more complicated when said spinster is "soulless" - a preternatural bridging the gap between the natural and supernatural worlds. Miss Alexia Tarabotti has this unique distinction, and when she is assailed at a formal gathering by a rove vampire, an encounter that results in the death of the half-starved creature, her circumstances become exponentially more complicated indeed! Now caught up in an intrigue with life or death stakes, Alexia must rely on all her talents to outmatch the forces conspiring against her, but it may be the man who has caught her eye - Lord Conall Maccon - and their budding flirtation that truly drives her to her wit's end!

What do you get when you mix a dead child, a movie buff, a chiromancer-anthropologist, a school shooting, and what appears to be a series of unrelated, everyday events? What you get is a disturbing possibility that exists in the present tense. Soulless is a book that walks a fine line between horror, mystery and science fiction, however, if you are looking for laser-gun-toting aliens, mother ships and fast-paced action, you will not find them here. In spite of that, you must not let those absences lure you into a false sense of security. Just look around and remember that truth is sometimes stranger than fiction. The most disturbing thing about Soulless is precisely the fact that you will not find impossible circumstances in its pages. What you will find is a different perspective on familiar facts. In this book the line that separates fantasy and reality is gradually blurred until it finally disappears, good and evil merge into one, as do hope and hopelessness. Before it is over you will be looking for a way to prove to yourself that this is just a work of fiction.

In all six of its volumes The Broadview Anthology of British Literature presents British literature in a truly distinctive light. Fully grounded in sound literary and historical scholarship, the anthology takes a fresh approach to many canonical authors, and includes a wide selection of work by lesser-known writers. The anthology also provides wide-ranging coverage of the worldwide connections of British literature, and it pays attention throughout to issues of race, gender, class, and sexual orientation. It includes comprehensive introductions to each period, providing in each case an overview of the historical and cultural as well as the literary background. It features accessible and engaging headnotes for all authors, extensive explanatory annotations throughout, and an unparalleled number of illustrations and contextual materials, offering additional perspectives both on individual texts and on larger social and cultural developments. Innovative, authoritative, and comprehensive, The Broadview Anthology of British Literature embodies a consistently fresh approach to the study of literature and literary history. The second edition of volume one of The Broadview Anthology of British Literature includes considerably more of Langland's Pier’s Plowman than appears in the first edition, and includes for the first time the work of John Gower. Also new to the bound book component of the anthology is the York Crucifixion Play, and additional work by Chaucer. With this volume as with the others, material continues to be added on an ongoing basis to the website component of the anthology.
