Introducing the Custard Protocol series, in which Prudence travels to India for Queen, country...and the perfect pot of tea.

When Prudence Alessandra Maccon Akeldama ("Rue" to her friends) is bequeathed an unexpected dirigible, she does what any sensible female under similar circumstances would do -- she christens it theSpotted Custardand floats off to India.
Soon, she stumbles upon a plot involving local dissidents, a kidnapped brigadier's wife, and some awfully familiar Scottish werewolves. Faced with a dire crisis (and an embarrassing lack of bloomers), Rue must rely on her good breeding -- and her metanatural abilities -- to get to the bottom of it all...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Start Gail Carriger is always able to start her series off so well. I'm hoping that the following books remain as enjoyable as the first, unlike her Parasol Protectorate and Finishing School series in which the books seemed to get progressively less and less interesting. Update: I read about halfway through the second one and had to stop. It wasn't able to hold my attention. I recommend just reading Prudence and stopping there.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun! Really enjoyed this book, was already a fan of Gail's Parasol Protectorate series, so it was natural for me to check our her newest adult series. Things never get too serious and I always find the writing light and enjoyable. Always nice to see a strong female lead!

Editorial Reviews

"The world of Timeless is a unique recipe of steampunk and fantasy spiced with light sprinkling of romance. Its setting is rich for characters to romp about in, but the unbridled playfulness of the language and dialogue shines brightest."-The Miami Herald
