From New York Times bestselling author Gail Carriger comes the delightful sequel to Imprudence .
Accidentally abandoned!
All alone in Singapore, proper Miss Primrose Tunstell must steal helium to save her airship, the Spotted Custard , in a scheme involving a lovesick werecat and a fake fish tail.
When she uncovers rumors of a new kind of vampire, Prim and the Custard crew embark on a mission to Peru. There, they encounter airship pirates and strange atmospheric phenomena, and are mistaken for representatives of the Spanish Inquisition. Forced into extreme subterfuge (and some rather ridiculous outfits) Prim must also answer three of life's most challenging questions: Can the perfect book club give a man back his soul? Will her brother ever stop wearing his idiotic velvet fez? And can the amount of lard in Christmas pudding save an entire species?

This series continues to be hilarious, charming, and entirely fun. The change of narrative voice from Rue to Prim & Percy made for a refreshing mid-series shakeup, and I can't wait for the next installment. If there are readers who love British period pieces and comedies of manners with a dash of the supernatural who somehow haven't discovered these books, pick them up!

Great fun, as ever, visiting the parasol-verse!

Primrose and Percival take centre stage here which is a great change of pace from the other characters on the Spotted Custard. Percival is pretty observant when he's not being too literal, and Primrose has some growing up to do if she wants to follow her heart. Real fun!

Narrated alternately by Primrose and Perceval, this instalment has a somewhat different feel compared to the first two books. I particularly enjoyed Perceval’s sections - his character hasn’t been explored as much as some of the others, and he’s turning out rather more interesting than might have been expected.
