(Amazon / Goodreads)
Synopsis: If one must flirt…flirt with danger.
Lessons in the art of espionage aboard Mademoiselle Geraldine’s floating dirigible have become tedious without Sophronia’s sweet sootie Soap nearby. She would much rather be using her skills to thwart the dastardly Picklemen, yet her concerns about their wicked intentions are ignored, and now she’s not sure whom to trust. What does the brusque werewolf dewan know? On whose side is the ever-stylish vampire Lord Akeldama? Only one thing is certain: a large-scale plot is under way, and when it comes to fruition, Sophronia must be ready to save her friends, her school, and all of London from disaster—in decidedly dramatic fashion, of course.
What will become of our proper young heroine when she puts her years of training to the test? Find out in this highly anticipated and thrilling conclusion to the New York Times bestselling Finishing School series!.
**** This is the final book in a series and there may be spoilers so proceed with caution. Read the rest of the Finishing School series first and come back. Here's my review of book one, Etiquette and Espionage to encourage you. ****
Last November I marathoned the Fishing School series and found myself liking it more and more with each passing book. So I was really excited to read the last book in the series, Manners & Mutiny, to see how it would all end. And fans of the series will not be disappointed. This was a really great ending to a series that is both fun and engaging with great characters, a thrilling plot. and interesting steampunk world.
On the whole Manners and Mutiny is a great ending to a fun and entertaining series with quirky and complex characters, a unique and interesting world, and a thrilling plot. I am not ready to say goodbye to this world and these characters. I have not yet read the Parasol Protectorate so that may be my next foray into Gail Carriger's steampunk world. I hear some characters from this book even come back!
Buy/Borrow/Bypass: Buy/Borrow. This series is definitely worth a read. It gets better and better with every passing book and I ended up really loving it. If you like steampunk, YA historical fantasy, or books about interesting boarding schools then you should definitely check this series out. Fans of the first three books will love the way this finishes.
Have you read Manners and Mutiny? What did you think? Leave me a comment with your thoughts. Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY READING!
