ON BEHALF OF QUEEN, COUNTRY . . . AND THE PERFECT POT OF TEA
When Prudence Alessandra Maccon Akeldama (Rue to her friends) is given an unexpected dirigible, she does what any sensible female would under similar circumstances – names it the Spotted Crumpet and floats to India in pursuit of the perfect cup of tea.
But India has more than just tea on offer. Rue stumbles upon a plot involving local dissidents, a kidnapped brigadier’s wife and some awfully familiar Scottish werewolves. Faced with a dire crisis and an embarrassing lack of bloomers, what else is a young lady of good breeding to do but turn metanatural and find out everyone’s secrets, even thousand-year-old fuzzy ones?
Delicious rapier wit that recalls Austen and P. G. Wodehouse * IO9 on SOULLESS * A wonderful beginning to this new chapter in Gail Carriger's world and a roaringly fun read. I can't wait to see where this series takes Rue * VAMPIRE BOOK CLUB * Prudence is a wonderful blend of steampunk and paranormal. When you open the book up you are sucked into a world of witty banter, and a world of paranormal perils that Prudence is most definitely up to the task to meet. I look forward to what is next for Rue in The Custard Protocol. * ALL THINGS URBAN FANTASY * It's easy to get swept along with the world Carriger has created, as her love of the genre is obvious and infectious . . . great fun * SCIFINOW * Feisty Rue will have you hooked on her and her bizarre world * WEEKEND SPORT *
