A Dastardly Plot Reviews
Oh, hello, this sounds awesome...
ARC provided by Edelweiss.
I enjoyed Healy's previous series "A Hero's Guide" and was excited to read this one. It was pretty good, but it seemed like Healy was trying too hard to be clever. A little more content and a little less campiness would have made this a much stronger story. I did like the addition of the (real-life) women inventers who history has overlooked in favor of their male counterparts.
Fun and adorable! I always enjoy Healy's work, and this book promised all the humor, action, and emotions I've come to expect. Looking forward to the sequel!
