The destruction of the secret archive of the Royal Order of Keepers on Mars has left Damien Montgomery, Hand of the Mage-King, with his enemies defeated, his lover dead - and his questions unanswered. When he seeks out the remaining Keepers for answers, he discovers only violence and death in their strongholds. Someone else is hunting down the survivors to make sure they never answer Damien's questions - or anyone else's.

i think this is a typical middle if series book. it can't stand and you need a for working knowledge of the series, but it dives much deeper into tge world and gives a lot more context to the intrigue behind the scenes.

From New York Times best-selling author Gail Carriger comes the stunning sequel to Prudence. Rue and the crew of the Spotted Custard return from India with revelations that shake the foundations of England's scientific community. Queen Victoria is not amused, the vampires are tetchy, and something is wrong with the local werewolf pack. To top it all off, Rue's best friend, Primrose, keeps getting engaged to the most unacceptable military types.

if you enjoy the other Gail Carriger bond, then you will enjoy this. those not familiar with the parasol protectorate series may struggle to understand the storyline and done of why certain things are happening.

the leghorns by Moira Quirk is, as always, fantastic and her strong push brush ascent helps in making this series sound great.

the story is a bit of a gap covering story i think. great for people who enjoy the series as it tires quite a few loose ends while at the same time starting some great new possible storylines but it is very much an in series book.

On behalf of queen, country...and the perfect pot of tea. When Prudence Alessandra Maccon Akeldama (Rue to her friends) is given an unexpected dirigible, she does what any sensible female would under similar circumstances - names it the Spotted Crumpet and floats to India in pursuit of the perfect cup of tea. But India has more than just tea on offer. Rue stumbles upon a plot involving local dissidents, a kidnapped brigadier's wife, and some awfully familiar Scottish werewolves.

If you have not read or listened to the parasol protectorate novels then please read those first, to help your understanding of the universe Gail Carriger has created.

it us a great continuation of the storyline without on over reliance on old characters from the parasol series nor from the finishing school series. the story is fast passed however if you don't like parodies of upper class Victorian society maybe look somewhere else.

You've heard of Faust - this is Eric. There's a difference. Eric is 14, lives on the famed and magical Discworld, and is the first ever demonology hacker. Fortunately, he doesn't succeed in raising any devils, but he does raise Rincewind (the most incompetent wizard in the universe) and the Luggage (the world's most dangerous travel accessory).

Granted it is quite short but very funny. - It is absolutly hilarious listening to the story. Stphen Briggs does an excelent job voicing them and when you hear what the luggage gets up to in a jungle at the beginning of the multiverse and when it finally arrives at the door of hell while a bureaucratic maniac (no not a spelling mistake) tries some new twists on hell and on what kind of potted plants the demons have you will be giggling and laughing and most probably spill your tea from shaking
