This books has all the things I love. Except penguins and cats. It was blurbed by Novick, Leckie, Carriger, and Milan, among many others. If you've been looking for a fantasy Regency book with an intersectional way of telling the story, then this is the one. The prospect of more fills me with delight.
I wouldn't have used that cover though, which looks very dragony and kind of dark, whereas this novel has more the feel of Wodehouse, Austen, Pratchett, and Heyer about it.
In another year I will have re-read this one in preparation for #2, at which point I'm certain I'll be adding it to the beloved list.
