A great story but I find I stumble over the main character's name (Sophronia) every time my eyes pass over it and it somewhat disturbs the flow of reading. ( )

I REALLY REALLY LOVED IT!!!!

I was expecting a kinda boring book about a finishing school, that's set in steampunk London (I don't even know what I'm spouting, but I think it was around 1890s?)

What I got was not what I expected. It was way, way above my expectations.

It was a very Harry Potter-esque, Percy Jackson-esque, Hound of Rowan-esque, Knightley Academy-esque, Oracles of Delphi Keep-esque, and many more fantasy novels that are set in boarding schools-esque environment, but mark my words, this was like that, but so much more.

My main thing to love was that there were spies??!?!?! and there's a finishing school disguised as a spy training school?!?!?!? And the spies and the main cast were all girls. This was one place where I absolutely loved this book.

I'm aware I'm writing this after reading the second book, so I won't be going into spoilers, but I'm rooting for Soap and Sophronia getting together despite the odds, and Vieve achieving her dreams, and Dimity to please stop fainting at blood!??!?!?!? I've said this before, and I'll say this again, how does she survive through the month if she faints at the littlest amount of blood?!?!?!?!!?

I recommend this to anyone who likes books about spies, girls in steampunk (maybe victorian?) London, who doesn't mind stupid comedy (that's what I call jokes that aren't really ones you have to think too much about, but are hilarious) and who liked any of the above series of books I mentioned. ( )

The first in this charming steampunk series was available on Audible for $5, so I gave it a shot. I expect I'll read the whole series. It's pretty light reading/listening and quite entertaining. ( )

Gail Carriger's books make me laugh and make me happy. The narrator for this audiobook was also really good. ( )

With eternal thanks to all those who finished me, at each stage, and in the best of all possible ways: Kathy, Carol, Harriet, James, Anne, Joe, Timi, Judith, and Tom. There is no job harder than teaching, and to be truly great at it? Heroic. And for Willow, representing for the next generation.

"Werewolf? Bully! We don't have any supernaturals here. It's quite a dearth in the deanship if you ask me. Any reputable school ought to have at least one vampire professor. Eton has three. You lot are only girls, and you've a vampire and a werewolf. Jolly unfair, that's what I call it."
