Description

From New York Times bestselling author Gail Carriger comes the first novel in a new series set in the world of the Parasol Protectorate starring Prudence, the daughter of Alexia Tarabotti.

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 do under similar circumstances-names it the Spotted Custard and floats to India in pursuit of the perfect cup of tea. But India has more than just tea to 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 discover everyone's secrets-even thousand-year-old fuzzy ones?
