#4 in the Parasol Protectorate series, I think this one is my favourite so far. So much upheaval!
I have fallen quite hard for a couple of secondary characters, to be honest. Professor Lyall is one - and we find out big chunk of his backstory, which I was so very pleased about. And Biffy - oh, I do love that young fellow!
The dialogue, is, as always, witty and clever and fun and set me to laughing aloud on more than one occasion. A heavily pregnant Alexia is a wonder to read. Her internal dialogue is even more fun than usual.
I have one more volume to go and I'm saving it. :)
