Etiquette & Espionage Reviews!

    • Lauren’s Loquacious Literature writes, “I was honestly tempted to kidnap a ten year old and sit them down while I read the story out to them so I could enjoy their enjoyment of it, because that’s what kind of book this is.”
    • Read This Book says, “Filled with humor and witty dialogue, the story easily entertains and keeps the reader turning the page.”
    • High Asipirations says, “As with Ms. Carriger’s other works, this book is well written with engaging characters, brilliant dialogue, and edge-of-the plot.”
    • SF Crowsnest says, “I wish I could go to this floating school of espionage… It’s like Hogwarts but so much better with all the mechanimals and other steampunk inventions.”
    • Lovely Books Blog says, “Sophronia was an absolutely hilarious protagonist. I adored her character and Carriger’s writing just highlighted all the best aspects of her personality.”
    • Modern Manuscript says, “Etiquette and Espionage, more so than the Parasol Protectorate books, is a steampunk fantasyland. It is this attention to detail and focus on immersive, innovative worldbuilding that is one of Carriger’s greatest strengths as a writer.”
    • So Many Books So Little Time says, “It’s not often you get a vampire professor, lessons in seduction and deception and go to school on a floating ship. It’s a brilliant world and I can’t wait to discover more about it as the series goes on.”
    • Queen Ella Bee Reads, “Gail Carriger? Werewolves? Vampires? Ghosts? OH MY INDEED.”
    • Lize-Mari Arthur says, “It is written for young girls, with an easy style and light moments of comedy, suspense and fantasy.”
    • SQ Mag says, “A mixture of Victorian propriety, outlandish steampunk inventions, and popular paranormal elements combine to make this series sure to please a modern reader’s palate.”
  • Biblio File says, “In the middle of this educational intrigue, there is real intrigue– flying highway men are attacking the school, after something the school has, and hidden. What is it? And where? Secret late-night trips to the boiler room, mechanical dogs and more…”

Quote of the Day:
“Morning – A term that in Jane Austen’s day often meant the period of time between breakfast and dinner, a meal which was often not consumed until three or four in the afternoon. The usage survived in the term “morning calls,” those ceremonial visits paid by the genteel to ladies “at home” in their drawing rooms between 3 PM and 5 PM.”

    As an adult fan of Gail Carriger, I was more than happy to find out that her new YA series is just as enjoyable as her Parasol Protectorate series that she did for an adult audience. Characters you love, wonderful descriptions, lots of action and intrigue. If you have a young adult reader, they can enjoy this book, and you'll probably enjoy it to. It's not a "kids book", it's a great story appropriate for a wide age range.
