Staff Reviews


Covertly recruited, Sophronia Temminnick joins an exclusive finishing school to become a lady, and a spy. Steampunk, werewolves, vampires, fashion, and intrigue combine in the first book of this young adult series.
Set about 20 years before Carriger's Parasol Protectorate books, this book shares the same sense of adventure and whimsy, along with some of the same characters.

— Jenn, Atlanta

Description


Fourteen-year-old Sophronia is the bane of her mother's existence. Mrs. Temminnick is desperate that her daughter, who is more interested in dismantling clocks and climbing trees than proper etiquette, become a proper lady. She enrolls Sophronia in Mademoiselle Geraldine's Finishing Academy for Young Ladies of Quality. Little do they know that this is a school where ingenious young girls learn a different kind of finishing. Mademoiselle Geraldine's trains her young proteges in how to finish others: the fine art of death, diversion, deceit, espionage, and the modern weaponries.
