Co-authors Pip Ballantine and Tee Morris ingeniously reimagine England’s Edwardian Era in Phoenix Rising—a hilarious, rip-roaring steampunk fantasy romp that the voracious fans of New York Times bestseller Gail Carriger will eagerly devour with great relish. In this outrageous, non-stop adventure, Ballantine and Morris introduce us to Agents Books and Braun of the ultra-secret Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences—the most delightful duo of very British evil-bashers since The Avengers, Emma Peel and John Steed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First book was worth reading I bought this along with Book 2 to 4, and wasn't sure if I would like this series. I am glad I purchased all four at once, because once I started, I couldn't put this down. The titles for each chapter are really unique.... they actually give you a cryptic summary of what is about to happen in the chapter, but you as the reader have no idea until we finish reading the chapter. Would definitely recommend this to my friends and family and any avid reader :D
