As the city prepares to celebrate Queen Victoria's golden jubilee, Veronica Speedwell is marking a milestone of her own. After burying her spinster aunt, the orphaned Veronica is free to resume her world travels in pursuit of scientific inquiry - and the occasional romantic dalliance.

The characters are fantastically fleshed out in this tale of adventure and intrigue and Miss Raybourn does an amazing job reading it to life. It has mystery, adventure, hints of romance and just enough humor to have you listininblistininbg again and again.

Sophronia's first year at Mademoiselle Geraldine's Finishing Academy for Young Ladies of Quality has certainly been rousing! For one thing, finishing school is training her to be a spy. Furthermore, Sophronia got mixed up in an intrigue over a stolen device and had a cheese pie thrown at her in a most horrid display of poor manners. Now, as she sneaks around the dirigible school, eavesdropping on the teachers' quarters, she learns that there may be more to a school trip to London than is apparent at first.

Fun with a dash of steam punk

Overall
5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 11-30-16

A wonderful tale of action, espionage in the settinbg of a special school and all that that implies. Carriger does a brilliant job of weaving the natural, supernatural together with the quirky actions and good wit of well written characters in this slightlky steam punk novel. Quirks narration does a fantastic job bringing it off the written page into your head.
