Présentation de l'éditeur

Alexia Maccon, the Lady Woolsey, awakens in the wee hours of the mid-afternoon to find her husband, who should be decently asleep like any normal werewolf, yelling at the top of his lungs. Then he disappears; leaving her to deal with a regiment of supernatural soldiers encamped on her doorstep, a plethora of exorcised ghosts, and an angry Queen Victoria. But Alexia is armed with her trusty parasol, the latest fashions, and an arsenal of biting civility. So even when her investigations take her to Scotland, the backwater of ugly waistcoats, she is prepared: upending werewolf pack dynamics as only the soulless can. She might even find time to track down her wayward husband, if she feels like it.

Biographie de l'auteur

New York Times bestselling author Gail Carriger writes to cope with being raised in obscurity by an expatriate Brit and an incurable curmudgeon. She escaped small town life and inadvertently acquired several degrees in Higher Learning. Ms. Carriger then traveled the historic cities of Europe, subsisting entirely on biscuits secreted in her handbag. She resides in the Colonies, surrounded by fantastic shoes, where she insists on tea imported from London.

The Parasol Protectorate books are: Soulless,Changeless, Blameless, Heartless, and Timeless. Soulless won the ALA's Alex Award A manga version released in Spring 2012 and a young adult series set in the same universe -- the Finishing School series -- released in Spring 2013. Gail is currently writing a new adult series, The Parasol Protectorate Abroad (Spring 2014).

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Je recommande cette excellente adaptation. 11 août 2014
Par usagi
Format:Broché
Bien que ce manga soit en anglais, il est parfaitement compréhensible et permet de se délecter du deuxième volume du Protectorat de l'Ombrelle, dans une version très fidèle. Les dessins sont extras, très travaillés, mais bien dans le style manga, avec des personnages parfois caricaturés, parfois en SD. Bien sûr, il n'y a pas toute l'histoire, mais l'ensemble se tient. L'héroïne est belle comme un coeur, Lord MacCon très séduisant, le professeur Lyall à croquer et tous les personnages secondaires sont présents, y compris l'affreuse soeur de l'héroïne. De plus, le volume, très épais, débute par plusieurs pages en couleur, de très grande qualité. A lire absolument.

j'ai beaucoup apprécié le 1er tome adapter en manga et celui -ci est également très bien fait. L'anglais utilisé n'est pas très compliqué. Hâte d'avoir le tome 3 dans les mains.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Not manga format, but still very good. 21 novembre 2012
Par Anjou Brown - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
For the people who love manga, this is not manga format. You open the book and read it from left to right.

I haven't counted the number of pages, but since chapter 14 starts in page 209, you will get a fairly thick book.

The first three pages are in glorious color and the rest, obviously, in black and white.

This graphic novel is wonderfully adapted from the second book of the installment, so if you are hesitating about reading the books, please don't be afraid, all the five of them are great.

The illustrations are great and personally I love how REM captured the essence of Lord Macon and Lord Akeldama. Alexia lost her prominent nose, but she kept her generous front.

So, I enjoyed every part of this graphic novel and it is a great addition to my Soulless collection.

Enjoy!!!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fabulous, wonderful adaption of the book. 20 novembre 2012

I love the book this is from, and the way they are adapting it for Manga is awesome. The characters feel true to the book with a fun flare of "Manga" with faces and expressions that are totally NOT British, but still fun.

Make sure you check out the first one of these too. You can get them month by month in installments from Yen Press with a subscription, but I like waiting to get a whole large chunk at a time.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Didn't love it. 11 décembre 2013
Par Talvi - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Soulless The manga, Volume 2, takes on book two of the Parasol protectorate series. Though not a terrible adaptation, this really does condense the book down to its barest essence - eschewing a lot of the wit and personality in the process. Characters are overwrought and poorly translated from the book. And plot points were clunkily conveyed, making the story hard to follow.

Alexia and Connall are enjoying marital bliss when they are confronted with a very serious problem concerning the supernaturals: their curses are broken and they are back to being human. No one seems to know why but a clue may lie with Connal's former wolf pack. Alexia and Connall will have to travel to Scotland to try to solve the riddle. Along the way, expect Carrigers wonder cast of characters to grow.

I came into this graphic novel with the perspective of having read book 1 of the novel but not this book two or a graphic novel adaptation. As well, I've very familiar with manga and manga conventions, so following this should have been no problem. However, this is one of those times that I feel the source book really shouldn't have been adapted into a graphic format, especially not manga. The characters all lost two decades, half their IQ, and are far too pretty. It took away a lot of the gravitas, as well as the prim and proper tongue in cheek tone that Carriger sets so well. Victorian era manga can be done well - e.g., Emma by Kaoru Mori. But it just wasn't here.

Despite having read the first book, I had a very hard time following what was going on in this book. People are introduced or talked about without being named, characters appear and disappear with little introduction, and actions are very glossed over. I think I may have missed quite a few of the plot points as a result.

In addition to the issues above, it did seem a shame to have all of Carriger's meticulous manners and historically accurate point completely jettisoned. Clothing, attitudes, even locales didn't match late Victorian at all. In some places it was really jarring - sort of like reading a book about the 1970s disco movement and everyone is wearing bobby socks and poodle skirts in one scene, leisure suits in the next.

I really suspect something happened in the communication between the adapter and the illustrator. Sometimes I felt like something very different was being illustrated than what was being described. As well, the overreactions, wild gesticulations, and overly sexed up scenes (far too many breasts showing) just didn't feel right at all. It was almost like a joke or caricature of the source material.

I think I'll go read the second novel and leave "Soulless - light" to those who liked it better.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A rollicking good time with beautiful artwork 30 juillet 2013
Par Talia - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
As always, Gail Carriger delivers a whopping good story. This is actually "Changeless," the second book in her Parasol Protectorate series. In this book, Alexia and Conall Maccon have traveled to Scotland to investigate what has suddenly caused supernaturals to remain human and lose their abilities.

During their adventures, they meet the inimitable Madam Lefoux - a French inventor with an eye for the ladies who isn't all she seems.

When they arrive in Scotland, Connal is forced to confront his old pack which betrayed him while Alexia searches for the supernatural weapon. An encounter with a spy leads Alexia to an exciting revelation, which isn't as warmly received as she would hope!

This is a terrific manga-zation of "Changeless." The story is kept intact and Rem's artwork is beautiful. I cannot wait to read Vol. 3!
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Even more fun that the Parasol Protectorate series with beautiful illustration 16 juin 2014
Par K. Eckert - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I really enjoyed this series when it was originally released as full length novels and also enjoyed the first manga I read in this series. This book was just as much fun as the first one and delves even deeper into the paranormal and steampunk aspects of the world that Alexia lives in. This graphic novel covers the second book in original series Changeless.

Alexia is trying to settle in as Lady Woodsley (Lord Macoon’s wife) but there is just one challenge after another. First there is a regiment of werewolves camped in her lawn, then for some reason the supernatural creatures are losing their powers...rendering them human. A lot of the supernaturals suspect Alexia’s involvement because of her Preternatural abilities and she sets off to Scotland (in pursuit of her husband) to prove them wrong.

This book has a lot more action than the previous one; including a daring dirigible ride and many attempts on Alexia’s life. There is a lot of humor throughout, just like in the first manga.

The illustration is absolutely beautiful. The surroundings and clothing are very detailed and facial expressions are very, very well done.

I thought Alexia in this manga was more true to the original book, in the first book she was a bit more flighty and goofy...this book was more true to her character. I also really enjoyed Madame Lefoux; she has always been a very fun and intriguing character in this series.

There is a lot of mystery and intrigue. We learn a lot more about Lord Macoon’s past as well. There is a twist at the end of the story that will have readers (at least those who haven’t read the full length books already) gasping in surprise.

Overall this was just a ton of fun. I continue to really enjoy these manga renditions of the Parasol Protectorate series. They have all the best and most entertaining parts of the novels in here. The illustration is stunning and I love the witty dialogue and quirky characters. Definitely recommended to fans of steampunk and paranormal reads.
