Class is back in session....

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 hijack a suspiciously empty train to return their chum Sidheag to her werewolf pack in Scotland. But when Sophronia discovers they are being trailed by a dirigible of Picklemen and flywaymen, she unearths a plot that threatens to throw all of London into chaos. With her friends in mortal danger, Sophronia must sacrifice what she holds most dear--her freedom.

Gather your poison, your steel-tipped quill, and the rest of your school supplies and join Mademoiselle Geraldine's proper young killing machines in the third rousing installment in theNew York Timesbestselling Finishing School series by steampunk author Gail Carriger.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Favourite book in the series Topping good fun! Only wish there had been more time and action in Scotland. Book 2 develops the existing main characters well, brings others into greater prominence to great effect, and brings about some wonderful new adventures. Was very pleased to see the storylines develop outside the standard boarding school drama style. Definitely my favourite in the series. I laughed so hard!
