Waiting on Wednesday 09/30/15

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that lets us feature upcoming releases that we can’t wait to get our hands on!

Mogsy’s Pick:

Imprudence by Gail Carriger: July 5, 2016 (Orbit)

Prudence is nothing like her mother Alexia Tarabotti, and I love her (and her book) for it. So far The Custard Protocol is reading quite differently from The Parasol Protectorate. Earlier this year, Prudence charmed and delighted me so much, I just can’t wait to get my hands on the sequel.

Imprudence“London is in chaos.

Rue and the crew of The Spotted Custard returned from India with revelations that shook the foundations of the scientific community. There is mass political upheaval, the vampires are tetchy, and something is seriously wrong with the local werewolf pack. To top it all off, Rue’s best friend Primrose keeps getting engaged to the most inappropriate military types.

Rue has got personal problems as well. Her vampire father is angry, her werewolf father is crazy, and her obstreperous mother is both. Worst of all, Rue’s beginning to suspect what they all really are… is frightened.

When the Custard is ordered to Egypt, transporting some highly unusual passengers, Rue’s problems go from personal to impossible. Can she get Percy to stop sulking? Will she find the true cause of Primrose’s lovesickness? And what is Quesnel hiding in the boiler room?”

  1. Some day I may read this series. I read the first 4 of Parasol Protectorate. Think the silly factor was a bit much for me. Maybe if I hadn’t read all 4 back to back it would have gone better. They were fun, but I also felt a serious overload of it.


  2. Oh, yes! I liked The Parasol Protectorate series – though I definitely think the series (mostly) improved with each book, have like Gail’s Finishing School series right from the top, but I was absolutely blown away by Prudence. Both the woman and the book, in fact. I am SO looking forward to Imprudence – and thought that, maybe it releases earlier than I originally thought when I saw it here. Almost a full year away! And I don’t know HOW I’m going to wait for it.
