Summary

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?

great continuation

If you have not read or listened to the parasol protectorate novels then please read those first, to help your understanding of the universe Gail Carriger has created.

it us a great continuation of the storyline without on over reliance on old characters from the parasol series nor from the finishing school series. the story is fast passed however if you don't like parodies of upper class Victorian society maybe look somewhere else.

Good, but a little disappointing

I really wanted to love this book as I adored The Parasol Protectorate series, however I was left disappointed. The story was a little dull and was filled with pointless prattle, and I found the character of Rue a little arrogant and unpleasant, the epitome of a spoilt brat, and not what I was expecting at all. A real shame as I had been looking forward to this book for ages.

good and different

I really loved the book. It is entertaining and just enough like the rest of the unniverse. I think that the people who says that Rue is stupid mix stupidity and nativity. This is her first adventure after all, and she is not her mother.
