Why does Miss Gail DO THIS TO ME
This is the 3rd book in the Custard Protocol series and was well done. This book focused more on the relationships between the characters than the actual adventure to find new vampires in new lands. However, the story does get to that point eventually. I enjoyed the humor, adventure, and characters. I do wish that the story and plot had made a bit more progress though.
I listened to this on audiobook and the audiobook was well done. Moira Quick always does an excellent job narrating this series a ...more
“Competence” revolves around the adventures of the crew of “the Spotted Custard” as they face a crisis with a slow leak in their dirigible; Prim Turnstell schemes to replenish the lost helium; the ethical reform of Prudence Akeldama’s cousin Rodrigo Tarabotti; and the rescue of a new type of vampire in Peru.
Revolving mainly around Prim Tunstell the plot tends to deal more with her romantic entanglement with the werecat Miss Sekhmet than the madcap adventures which seem to be secondary. Yet it’s ...more
ARC, part 3 in the Custard Protocol series.
The glorious Spotted Custard, (the red and black dirigible owned and captained by Prudence Akeldama Maccon, Rue to her friends) is out and about making the world unsafe again.

I think I'm falling a bit out of love with this writer. I still love the world she created for these books, but I don't like the characters as much as with her other series, so it all becomes a bit... silly. If not frustrating. The plot of the book is almost forgotten, so the drive of the book is the romance and the two pov's, which I both didn't enjoy, an issue that this entire series has had for me. Such a shame, since I loved the first two series so much.
E fu così che Prim uscì dall'armadio e tutti gridarono "Finalmente!". Percy compreso. Che c'era arrivato prima di lei.
Ero contentissima che questo romanzo fosse incentrato su Prim e Tash. Alla prova dei fatti è stato più corale e meno focalizzato su di loro di quello che speravo, ma va benissimo lo stesso. Va bene perché il risultato è molto equilibrato. Vedere Rue con gli occhi degli altri personaggi, entrare nella testa di Percy (e rimanerne destabilizzati... perché scoprire che dei due gemell ...more

COMPETENCE, the third book in the Custard Protocol series continues the excellent adventures in frivolity, fun, and danger that the crew of the Spotted Custard find themselves on. I absolutely love the world this series is set in and the expert combination of steampunk and romance is key to that for me. There is always more world for the Spotted Custard crew to discover and and it was fun to see a different take on vampires and vampire lore in Peru whic ...more
