OH MY GOD THIS BOOK IS AMAZING AND I LOVED IT!!!!!!!

I don't think there was a moment in this book that I didn't enjoy, and I want more!!!!

I really loved it! It was an amazing end to the series, and it had Vieve again (I missed her a lot in the last book) but it didn't feature Sidheag....

Now, spoilers: I loved how everyone's stories tied in, and how Soap and Sophronia finally ended up together. I would have loved a bit of conclusion to Mersey, but then I don't know......

The way Sophronia and Dimity and Agatha have evolved as characters was just amazing, and I loved Agatha's side plot with the already-on-an-assignment thing. I really like Pillover, and thought he might end up with Agatha....Dimity has overcome her fear of blood......mostly, and she was an amazing person in this book.

The thing I loved the most was their friendship, and how they have 'finished' so to speak. Sophronia's taking over and subsequent crashing the school was just enthralling....I was hooked till the end. Mademoiselle Geraldine, as suspected, was in on it all along, and that made her an even better character in my opinion.


I really, really loved it, and I will for sure be rereading this in the future. If only there were more books in this series, and we could find out how Sophronia is doing now.....or rather did after 1854. ( )

Easily one of the best variant closures with a nod towards in period social mores that I've seen in ages - and a heck of a lot of fun throughout. ( )

Gail Carriger never disappoints. I loved how the book/series ended. And I love that the series have an ending. And then there are other series, but this is concluded. Usually it's not good when things drag on forever. ( )

Sophronia's training is put to its final test in Manners & Mutiny, the fourth book in the Finishing School series by Gail Carriger. It's the last year of school for our favorite group of students at Mademoiselle Geraldine's Finishing Academy for Young Ladies of Quality. A large-scale plot the Pickleman have set in motion is about to come to fruition unless Sophronia acts quickly. She will need to use all of her intelligencer training if she is to have any hope of saving her friends, her school, her teachers and all of London from disaster. I loved every minute of it.

Gail Carriger's trademark wit and clever dialog is back and just as delightful as ever, reminding me why I enjoy both series so much. Speaking of which, I think fans of Parasol will get the most from this book as we finally see all the connections back to Alexia's story. There are some surprising reveals that I did not see coming!

Yes, the romance is back. Thankfully it's a lot less annoying as the a forced triangle is gone and the romance sub-plot is put on the back burner for much of the story. I do feel that Felix got the short end of the stick and not a very good resolution, though in general didn't mind too much as that was my least favorite thing about the previous entry. By the end it's almost charming and feels more authentic as Soap and Sophronia figure out just how messy love is.

I also missed Sidheag as her story ended in book 3. I was nicely surprised by Agatha who shows great character growth and maybe she's not as bad an intelligencer as she initially appeared, fooling everyone. Even Dimity has nice character growth, almost overcoming her aversion to blood, though not quite.

Once the grande finale started, I could not put the book down.

This has been such a fun series. I'm going to miss visiting with the girls at Mademoiselle Geraldine's. I could see myself doing a reread when I need light hearted, dirigible adventure to take my mind off the troubles of the world for a while. ( )
