This is not my favorite Gail Carriger, but it was still a solid and entertaining read.
I wish I could have seen more build-up of the relationship between Prim and Tash before everyone started discussing Prim's reluctance to pair off, but I enjoyed seeing Tash and Percy, Rue and Prim discuss the relationship.
The action/adventure portion did seem more easily resolved than in some other books in the series, but I enjoyed the overall story arc. I liked seeing how Prim completely inhabits her role as Purser, and it made the entire venture of the Spotted Custard and its crew seem much more realistic and intentional/organized than it has in some previous installments.
I thought the second romance was sweet and I enjoyed learning a bit more about Formerly Floote.
Percy is now my favorite Custard Protocol character; he was awkwardly adorable and very relatable from start to finish.
I found the resolution of the Spotted Custard's mission quite clever and charming if a bit too quick. And the ending of the novel was sweet and hit me in a personal spot just enough to make me cry, but happily.
I'm really looking forward to seeing the next installment in this series. There's a certain event, a storyline or two, and several characters I really hope are going to make an appearance...
From New York Times bestselling author Gail Carriger comes the delightful sequel to Imprudence.
All alone in Singapore, proper Miss Primrose Tunstell must steal helium to save her airship, the Spotted Custard, in a scheme involving a lovesick werecat and a fake fish tail.
When she uncovers rumors of a new kind of vampire, Prim and the Custard crew embark on a mission to Peru. There, they encounter airship pirates and strange atmospheric phenomena, and are mistaken for representatives of the Spanish Inquisition. Forced into extreme subterfuge (and some rather ridiculous outfits) Prim must also answer three of life's most challenging questions:
Can the perfect book club give a man back his soul?
Will her brother ever stop wearing his idiotic velvet fez?
And can the amount of lard in Christmas pudding save an entire species?
