Editorial Reviews

Review

"Charming... Carriger's prose is playful and droll, with frequent laugh-worthy moments, tongue-in-cheek humor, and sparkling repartee."―Publishers Weekly

"Carriger excels at wry humor and clever phrasing, and her ensemble cast is thoroughly charming and satisfyingly diverse. There's a genuine sense of whimsy and fun running throughout this story."―
Publishers Weekly on Competence

"Carriger's trademark wit and whimsy are in evidence from the very first sentence, and the result is an inventive madcap adventure."―
RT Book Reviews on Imprudence

"Blending steampunk and urban fantasy in a colorful alternate Victorian England, Carriger presents a grand cast of characters on a harrowing adventure that stretches from England to India... Filled with lavish fashions, supernatural high society, and witty dialogue, this story is a fine introduction to a fabulous new series."―
Booklist on Prudence

"Carriger maintains a droll, tongue-in-cheek tone, and her protagonists are as concerned with witty banter and fashionable hats as they are with fighting for their lives. Series fans will enjoy this mischievous romp, which revisits old favorites while raising a new crop of charming characters."―
Publishers Weekly on Prudence

"Readers who delighted in Carriger's Parasol Protectorate will be entranced by the familiar cast and trademark wit of the new Custard Protocol series...Behind the delightful whimsy and snarky observations, there is a great deal of heart and soul."―
RT Book Reviews on Prudence

"The author's humor and affection for her outlandish characters is always appealing. A fun launch."―
Library Journal on Prudence

From the Author

Yes Gentle Reader, Reticence is the final book in the Custard Protocol series. It takes place after events in Competence and contemporaneous with those in How to Marry a Werewolf.

The Spotted Custard crew is back for one last rollicking adventure! Watch me tie up all those loose threads. Look out for appearances from beloved Parasolverse characters (and some less beloved) and learn everyone's secrets... the hard way.

Percy, of course, could care less.

Or could he?

This one is absolutely and utterly for YOU, Gentle Reader. Hopefully, you'll be as caught up as possible by the time this book releases. I'm giving you fair warning.

This book is mad cap fun and absolutely hilarious no matter what. But you'll get all the inside jokes and cookies only if you've read the Parasolverse back catalogue.

Gear up, you're in for a particularly puffy final float!

You have been warned.
Gift for everyone
