Prudence

Prudence

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?

Reviews

Feisty Rue will have you hooked on her and her bizarre world
WEEKEND SPORT
Prudence is a wonderful blend of steampunk and paranormal. When you open the book up you are sucked into a world of witty banter, and a world of paranormal perils that Prudence is most definitely up to the task to meet. I look forward to what is next for Rue in The Custard Protocol.
ALL THINGS URBAN FANTASY
Delicious rapier wit that recalls Austen and P. G. Wodehouse
IO9 on SOULLESS
A wonderful beginning to this new chapter in Gail Carriger's world and a roaringly fun read. I can't wait to see where this series takes Rue
VAMPIRE BOOK CLUB
It's easy to get swept along with the world Carriger has created, as her love of the genre is obvious and infectious . . . great fun
