....I'm pretty much in love with Gail Carriger's writing. No further comments.
I've previously read & blogged about these books by Carriger:
THE PARASOL PROTECTORATE
CURTSIES & CONSPIRACIES
ETIQUETTE & ESPIONAGE
WAISTCOATS & WEAPONRY
This is the first book of The Custard Protocol series, which is the spin off series of The Parasol Protectorate series.
This is a book geared towards adults, I usually read young adult books....so the heads up feels justified.
so here's an amazon summary, "When Prudence Alessandra Maccon Akeldama ("Rue" to her friends) is bequeathed an unexpected dirigible, she does what any sensible female under similar circumstances would do -- she christens it the Spotted Custard and floats off to India.
Prudence has grown up and is ready for her own adventures. Raised in Lord Akeldama's lovely household with all of his dandies.
She's been slightly trained in art of espionage and she's bored at high society events. Prudence is ready to take on something a little more challenging...
With an assignment from Dama (Lord Akeldama), Prudence is off in a dirigible named The Spotted Custard that also looks like a giant lady bug.
This book is full of the same great humor, penchant for particular fashion, and interesting supernatural instances.
