Description

Bookish and proper Percival Tunstell finds himself out of his depth when floating cities, spirited plumbing, and soggy biscuits collide in this delightful conclusion to NYT best-selling author Gail Carriger's Custard Protocol series.

Percival Tunstell loves that his sister and her best friend are building themselves a family of misfits aboard their airship, the Spotted Custard. Of course, he'd never admit that he belongs among them. He's always been on the outside - dispassionate, aloof, and hatless. But accidental spies, a trip to Japan, and one smart and beautiful doctor may have him renegotiating his whole philosophy on life.

Except hats. He's done with hats. Thank you very much.

Ce que les critiques en disent

"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. Series fans will enjoy this mischievous romp, which revisits old favorites while raising a new crop of charming characters." (Publishers Weekly on Prudence)

"The author's humor and affection for her outlandish characters is always appealing. A fun launch." (Library Journal on 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.... Filled with lavish fashions, supernatural high society, and witty dialogue, this story is a fine introduction to a fabulous new series." (Booklist on Prudence)

Favourite of the series

I've really enjoyed this series, I love Gail Carriger's writing. I think this is my favourite and the narration is great - Ivy Tunstall's voice was perfect! I was worried the books were going to get repetitive but I think Gail mixed it up enough to keep them interesting.

Gorgeous ending

All those connections! All those cameos!! Oh, it was such a fun end to the Custard Protocol. I’ll never love it as much as Parasol Protectorate or Finishing School, but thanks to Percy’s installment, who is undoubtedly the character on the Spotted Custard I personally identify with and am fond of most, it’s now in my “repeatedly reread pile,” along with Gail Carriger’s other series. I’m a little sad I’ll never get to read Reticence for the first time again!!

A perfect ending to the series

I was worried after the last book ended with so many people in happy relationships, that this book would produce drama by destroying them. I was happily surprised to see it take a different direction, and felt like this tied up the series in a nice pretty bow. A great story, a great ending, and a great series.

what can I say that hasn't already been said

this book was very bitter sweet for me because it was the last of the series. I am going to miss Rue, Prim, Tash, Percy, the Doc, Qunnell, Spoo, Anitra, Rod everybody. They have become like family to me. The book was amazing, Moira Quirk was spectacular. I will miss them all, it was also nice to see very old friends as well. If you are a fan of Gail Carriger you have to read this book.

Nice end to the series

This was a cute way to send off the series! I really liked Arsenic, and it was a lot of fun seeing her and Percy's POV, and that of Spoo! I also liked the way both the Parasol Protectorate and Finishing School characters were sprinkled throughout. The ending did feel a smidge rushed, and I was hoping the epilogue would give us a little bit of insight into the characters several years after the series' end (and for some, it did), but it was also nice to get a little bit of an insight from Lord Akeldama as to the events, so I'm not really going to complain!

Moira Quirk, as usual, delivered a delightful performance. There were a few times when her voice for Percy sounded a little more like the voice she used for Quesnel, but it wasn't enough to confuse me or anything like that.

Rich in imagination and blend with reality.

The characters are so well written a reader can't help but to fall in love and feel all of the emotions the characters experience. It is a world full of pieces of familiar history and culture mixed with an imagination of another world that is changing. Loved every.moment of the series and the book.

Always enjoyable, light and witty!

Always enjoyable, light and witty! Although, admittedly distracted several times with an overly used phrase that didnt particularly make sense, "as quick as maybe". Otherwise, as delightful as most other Carriger books.

best romance in series

I've enjoyed all the books in The Custard Protocol, and this one was particularly good. The romantic protagonists interact naturally, and it's a pleasure to hear it develop.
