Description

Does one need four fully-grown foxgloves for decorating a dinner table for six guests? Or is it six foxgloves to kill four fully-grown guests? Sophronia's first year at school has certainly been rousing. First, her finishing school is training her to be a spy. (Won't Mumsy be surprised!) Secondly, she gets mixed up in an intrigue over a stolen device and has a cheese pie thrown at her. Now, as Sophronia sneaks around the dirigible school, eavesdropping on the teachers' quarters and making clandestine climbs to the ship's boiler room, she learns that there may be more to a school trip to London than at first appears....

Vampires, werewolves, and humans are all after the prototype Sophronia recovered in Etiquette & Espionage, which has the potential to alter human and supernatural travel. Sophronia must try to uncover who is behind a dangerous plot to control the prototype...as well as survive the London season with a full dance card.

MS Carriger does it yet again

Another great Steampunk romp from Gail Carrier with an excellent narration from Moira Quirk.

This is the second in this series set before the timeline of the excellent Parasol Protectorate series. it even includes younger versions of some of the characters or their relations from the original series. Whilst the technology is earlier there is a definite Steampunk vibe to the story arc and of course the same supernatural races are woven into the tale.

The story is told in Ms Carriger's irreverent tongue firmly in cheek style of her earlier series and whilst listed as YA it will most definitely appeal to those who love Steampunk and or her earlier series no matter what their age . . .

enjoy

Großartiger 2. Band der 2. Reihe von Gail Carriger

Ich mochte die Parasol Protectorate (Im deutschen 'Lady Alexia') Bände von Gail Carriger. Die Finishing School Reihe (bisher nur auf englisch erschienen) spielt 20 Jahre vor dem Start der anderen Romane. Dennoch empfehle ich sie in der Reihe zu hören in der sie geschrieben wurden.

Es ist grandios wie hier die Geschichte von Sophronia weiter geführt wird, sie Charakteren begegnet die in der vorangeganen Reihe schon erwähnt werden und wie Geschichte bei der die Ergebnisse vielleicht ansatzweise bekannt sind, dennoch enorm spannend erzählt wird. Zudem ist es mal wieder gespickt mit großartigem Wortwitz, einfallsreichtum und Modedetails.

Moira Quirk ist eine großartige Sprecherin, weit besser als ihr deutsches Gegenstück. Auch wenn viele komplizierte Wörter einzug finden halte ich die Buchreihe auch in Englisch für ungeübte für geeignet.
