Etiquette & espionage
Finishing School Book 1
By Gail Carriger

Sophronia’s mother is disappointed to say the least at how her 14 year old daughter is turning out. No sense of decorum just an urge to dismantle clocks and climb trees. So Sophronia is sent to Mademoiselle Geraldine’s Finishing Academy for Young Ladies of Quality.
However, all is not as it seems and ‘finishing’ takes on a whole new meaning. The school certainly train young ladies in the finer arts of dance, dress, and etiquette, but they are also trained to “finish” certain people off. They are learning the fine arts of death, diversion, deceit, espionage, and modern weapons.
The trailer for this book is wonderful. I love it. The book is due out shortly. Gail Carriger is an author I seem to have missed out on but I will be looking for this one in particular. The idea of young Victorian ladies learning to kill is just out there and we all need books with a point of difference. Can’t wait!
