The Friday Society
By Adrienne Kress
Release Date: December 6, 2012An action-packed tale of gowns, guys, guns--and the heroines who use them all
Set in Edwardian London, The Friday Society follows the stories of three very intelligent and talented young women, all of whom are assistants to powerful men: Cora, lab assistant; Michiko, Japanese fight assistant; and Nellie, magician's assistant. The three young women's lives become inexorably intertwined after a chance meeting at a ball that ends with the discovery of a murdered mystery man.
It's up to these three, in their own charming but bold way, to solve the murder--and the crimes they believe may be connected to it--without calling too much attention to themselves.
Told with Adrienne Kress's sharp wit and a great deal of irreverence, this Steampunk whodunit introduces three unforgettable and very ladylike--well, relatively ladylike--heroines poised for more dangerous adventures.
How awesome does this book sound? Gowns, guys, guns....what more could you ask for? I love the idea of this being set in Edwardian London because that time period is one of my favorites! Add in a steampunk storyline and you're bound to get a pretty great book. This sounds like a steampunk Charlie's Angels and I can't wait to be able to read it! And the added mystery makes it sound even more intriguing. Why does December have to be so far away???
