Imprudence
Imprudence | Gail Carriger
From New York Times bestselling author Gail Carriger comes the delightful sequel to Prudence. Rue and the crew of the Spotted Custard return from India with revelations that shake the foundations of England's scientific community. Queen Victoria is not amused, the vampires are tetchy, and something is wrong with the local werewolf pack. To top it all off, Rue's best friend Primrose keeps getting engaged to the most unacceptable military types. Rue has family problems as well. Her vampire father is angry, her werewolf father is crazy, and her obstreperous mother is both. Worst of all, Rue's beginning to suspect what they really are... is frightened.

On retreading this story feels incomplete, but I blame my familiarity with the narrative arc of the series rather than the book as written. The queer themes of this series makes it particularly charming for me.

I was previously trying to get some #audiocleaning done, but I'm having very little luck in the audiobook department lately. So, now I'm sitting down for a bit to enjoy some reading before I have to cook supper. #TheCustardProtocol #Book2

So good, the new cast of characters has really grown on me and gelled together into a great crew, and this installment has some great cameos of characters from the previous series which I fully enjoyed seeing in passing again. Overall.... new adventures, resolution to some old storylines, and some romance is in the air, literally and figuratively.

It's been a delight to get back in this world! I've been working my way through 2018 Banned Books List. Books like 13 Reasons Why have left me in dire need of a happy read. Imprudence was as refreshing as my Lemon Basil Gin and Tonic on this dreadfully hot day.🍋☂️😽

This time the group is headed to Egypt to drop off Rue's parents and protect a group of cat shifters. As usual, much trouble ensues.

The second book in the 'Custard Protocol', in which our dear heroine, daughter of the previous series main characters, seems to grow up. A touch more romance but still no details, this is a Victorian era book after all. Carriger has made me fall in love with steampunk paranormal alternate history! 😍 Still a light fun paranormal read.

I was listening to this and heard the word "soulless" and something just clicked in my brain - it didn't occur to me until that moment that the Parasol Protectorate is essentially an introduction to this series. It's driving me crazy that I didn't read that one first. Now I have to make it a priority to read that series before the next Custard Protocol book ("Competence", featuring Primrose) is released in July! #accidentallyunchronological

Realised tonight why I‘ve been putting off reading this: I love Conall Maccon too much. But it‘s ok (I think, I hope) the worst is past and it should be ok. You can never tell with Gail Carriger though, she‘s not afraid to do the unthinkable.

Another fantastic, wonderful fun ride by Gail Carriger. Absolutely love her many characters and delightful, rollicking adventures. Every time I read one of her books, I want to go back and reread them all. Her witticisms and wonderful phrasing make these tapes even more enjoyable! Can't recommend these books enough!

Avec ce deuxième volume du Protocole de la crème anglaise de @GailCarriger , on plonge dans univers steampunk un peu loufoque, très british, où les loups-garous et les vampires sont des citoyens londoniens comme les autres. Cette série est à la fois plein d'humour et d'aventures, et un régal à lire!
La plume de Carrière rend cette lecture extrêmement drôle et un plaisir à déguster...avec un thé !

Finally reunited with my copy of this book! Rue and crew continue their adventures abroad, discovering the British Empire is quite ignorant in regard to international supernaturals. All of these characters are so fun! I want to have a Spoo of my own. And a dirigible. It's also delightful to reencounter familiar folks from the original series 😍#mommyreads #ya #steampunk

This entire set of series is fun and exciting. My biggest complaint is that the books are all 300 pages or less, but I would still recommend them.
Steampunk, supernatural (as well as preternatural and metanatural), adventure, and bits of romance thrown in.

Start with " Etiquette and Espionage ". There are 3 different series: Finishing School, Parasol Protectorate, and Custard Protocol.

Ms. Carriger's has done it again with a diverting romp through the Victorian empire. Prudence and the rest of the crew aboard the spotted custard are off to Egypt, ostensibly to help some "old" favorites. Tidbits abound regarding familiar characters and things are tied up as neatly as Biffy's cravat.
