Graceful Espionage?

Have you always wanted to read about proper ladies in a steampunk fashion learning the ways of espionage? Then the Finishing School series is just for you!


“C.S. Lewis said that, “A children’s story that can only be enjoyed by children is not a good children’s story in the slightest.” and the same is true for YA. Gail Carriger approaches her YA as an adult book and successfully writes some compelling, interesting, and dynamic young characters. Perfectly executed.
So far I’m about halfway through and I can’t wait for the next installment.
This book is light, fun, and has very strong positive female role models. The action is well-paced and the heroine is approachable and likable. I now have this book in three formats and I feel that every penny was a great investment.”

– Gloria Waite, Amazon Review

If you like Secrets, Lies, Gizmos, and Spies; a History of Spies and Espionage or NERDS; National Espionage, Rescue, and Defense Society, then we highly recommend you check these out!
