Waistcoats & Weaponry (Finishing School #3)
by Gail Carriger
published by Little, Brown Books
Genre: YA, Steampunk, Supernatural, Shifters
Summary (Goodreads): Sophronia continues second year finishing school in style -- with a steel-bladed fan secreted in the folds of her ball gown. She, best friend Dimity, sweet sootie Soap, and charming Lord Felix Mersey stow away on train to return classmate Sidheag to her werewolf pack in Scotland. No one suspects what or who would be aboard the suspiciously empty train.
Mini Thoughts: This was not my favorite of this series. Sophronia annoyed me in this book. Lots of flopping back and forth between Lord Mersey and Soap. Also, seemed very selfish for a lot of it.
I also didn't like the main plot of this book. The whole train ride and the picklemen I found boring.
There were two things that saved this for me. The writing was great as usual and the secondary story of Sidheag and the Scotland pack. This gave more background and got characters into place for when Parasol Protectorate starts up.
