SOULLESS: THE MANGA is a three-volume adaptation of the first three books in the Parasol Protectorate Series to manga form. It is drawn by the artist Rem and published by Yen Press. There are unlikely to be more.
All three books are published under the title "Soulless," and are differentiated through numbered volumes. There are no further volumes forthcoming, according to Gail Carriger and there is not an intent to adapt Heartless or Timeless. Volume 1 hit the New York Times bestseller list at #2 on March 18, 2012. Volume 2 hit the list at #1 on December 9, 2012, the only of Gail Carriger's titles to reach #1. Volume 3 hit the list at #7 on February 24, 2013."Alexia Tarabotti is laboring under a great many social tribulations. First, she has no soul. Second, she’s a spinster whose father is both Italian and dead. Third, she was rudely attacked by a vampire, a terrible breach of social etiquette. Where to go from there? From bad to worse apparently, for the appalling Lord Maccon (loud, messy, gorgeous, and werewolf) is sent by Queen Victoria to investigate the incident, and he is none too happy to see Alexia at the scene. With unexpected vampires appearing and expected vampires disappearing, everyone seems to believe Alexia responsible, given her soulless ability to negate supernatural powers. Can Alexia uncover what is happening before she becomes the next victim?"
