    4.5 out of 5 stars 1,346

Sophronia continues her second year at finishing school in style - with a steel-bladed fan secreted in the folds of her ball gown, of course. Such a fashionable choice of weapon comes in handy when Sophronia, her best friend Dimity, sweet sootie Soap, and the charming Lord Felix Mersey stowaway on a train to return their classmate Sidheag to her werewolf pack in Scotland. No one suspected what - or who - they would find aboard that suspiciously empty train.

Would you listen to Waistcoats & Weaponry again? Why?

Yep

Who was your favorite character and why?

Impossible to pick a favorite. Great character development on all of them.

What does Moira Quirk bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

This narrator brings a charm to the characters which helps the personalities shine. She does a splendid job.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No extreme reaction but it was satisfying.

Any additional comments?

The story had a plot twist or two that I was not expecting. It seemed to drag a little a couple of times but it was worth sticking with. I'll definitely be completing the series. Overall my favorite author in the genre with a superb mix of humor while embracing the basics of steam punk.
