From New York Times bestselling author Gail Carriger comes the delightful sequel to Imprudence.

Accidentally abandoned!

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?

“carriger maintains a droll, tongue-in-cheek tone, and her protagonists are as concerned with witty banter and fashionable hats as they are with fighting for their lives.”

~ Publishers Weekly (Prudence)

“blending steampunk and urban fantasy in a colorful alternate victorian england, carriger presents a grand cast of characters on a harrowing adventure that stretches from england to india.“

~ Booklist, April 2015 (Prudence)

“behind the delightful whimsy and snarky observations, there is a great deal of heart and soul…”

~ RT Book Reviews (Prudence)

“a character-driven romp with great world-building and delicious rapier wit that recalls austen and p.g. wodehouse.”

~ io9.com (Soulless)

“this genre-bender will introduce fans of ally carter’s gallagher girls and jennifer lynn barnes’ the squad to a world of mechanical maids and flying machines while bringing a spy-school romp to readers of the weightier worlds of cassandra clare and scott westerfield.”

~ Kirkus, starred review (Etiquette & Espionage)
