Prudence by Gail Carriger

I received Prudence by Gail Carriger through a goodreads giveaway. Set in Victorian times and full of appropriate banter for the era, this story about Prudence is a steampunk adventure of exploration and humor. Prudence’s parentage causes some confusion at first, but then it’s explained that she’s a werewolf with a vampire mother and an adoptive vampire father and a werewolf birth father; I think I’ve got that right. Prudence (Rue) receives a dirigible and a mission to fly to India to procure tea, so she can be gainfully employed, become more independent and stay out of trouble due to boredom. Prudence takes a talented crew along for the job and gets more than any of them bargained for. A fun supernatural steampunk adventure, 4 stars!
