Description

From New York Times bestselling author Gail Carriger comes the stunning sequel to Prudence.

Rue and the crew of the Spotted Custard return from India with revelations that shake the foundations of England's scientific community. Queen Victoria is not amused, the vampires are tetchy, and something is wrong with the local werewolf pack. To top it all off, Rue's best friend Primrose keeps getting engaged to the most unacceptable military types.

Rue has family problems as well. Her vampire father is angry, her werewolf father is crazy, and her obstreperous mother is both. Worst of all, Rue's beginning to suspect that what they really are . . . is frightened.

Review quote

Feisty Rue will have you hooked on her and her bizarre world

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

Delicious rapier wit that recalls Austen and P. G. Wodehouse

Carriger debuts brilliantly with a blend of Victorian romance, screwball comedy of manners and alternate history

About Gail Carriger

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 travelled the historic cities of Europe, subsisting entirely on biscuits secreted in her handbag. She now resides in the Colonies, surrounded by fantastic shoes, where she insists on tea imported directly from London. Find out more about the author at gailcarriger.com.
