Sassy to the end, and a sweet, if fiery, conclusion! ( )

Loved this book and the series, lots of action and still made me laugh a bit. Definitely going to go on to read the Parasol Protectorate. ( )

Ahh... the last book. Sephronia's last year at Madame Geraldine's Finishing Academy for Young Ladies of Quality (Quali-tay). She's become quite the intelligencer and rather deadly to boot.

The book wraps up the over-all series arc and shares a few surprises too. There's a bit of romance in this one and I like that it's as daring (for the times/universe) as Sephronia herself is.

I enjoyed the book, but I didn't love it; it lacked the 'oomph' of Carriger's Parasol Protectorate series – and even the first two books of this series. Still, it was entertaining and the writing, if not necessarily the plotting, is full of razor-sharp wit and humour. I never thought I'd say it, but I love the steampunkiness of her books and I look forward to reading the first of her newest series: The Custard Protocol - Prudence. ( )

A relatively decent, action-packed finish to the series. It was satisfying to see Sophronia finally work out a relationship with Soap (seriously, the whole love triangle attempt in the previous books was awful). I would not mind a spinoff series focusing on Pillover. ( )
