Sophronia continues her second year at finishing school in style—with a steel-bladed fan secreted in the folds of her ball gown, of course. Such a fashionable choice of weapon comes in handy when Sophronia, her best friend Dimity, sweet sootie Soap, and the charming Lord Felix Mersey stowaway on a train to return their classmate Sidheag to her werewolf pack in Scotland.
No one suspected what—or who—they would find aboard that suspiciously empty train. Sophronia uncovers a plot that threatens to throw all of London into chaos and she must decide where her loyalties lie, once and for all.
Another fun story from an amazing author. I love the characters, I love how bad things always fall into Sophronia's lap, and I love how people seem to be dragged to her. This book is no different. This books events revolve around Werewolves, the Picklemen and the Flywaymen (what interesting names they carry). The group endeavors an excursion to Sophronia's eldest brothers engagement party where they end up on a much dangerous excursion to get a friend home to her dishonored werewolf family. Things don't go as planned however, I mean why would they.
By the end of the book there is a patronage, three characters leave the school for good and one of them i changed for good. I don't know that Sophronia has anybody trying to court her anymore. I can't wait to see what happens with these characters in the next book!!!
These books are intense at times, yet fun in others. There is a good medium between the happy, sad and intense moments though. I can honestly say that I was unable to put these books down and I truly look forward to reading book 4 as soon as humanly possible. I wasn't a huge fan of the steampunk genre before these books but I think I may be hooked now. I had read a couple but they just didn't connect with me. This series did and I look forward to getting more into the genre!
4 steamy stars!
