Review: Competence


3rd in the Custard Protocol series

by Gail Carriger

Orbit, 2018

YA Steampunk Supernatural Adventure Romance

8 cups of tea out of 11

Summary: Primrose has to save the Spotted Custard because it is deflating. And she has to prepare for another adventure to South America, all while trying to figure out how she feels about their werecat first mate.

Likes: I really liked the romance for Prim and how supportive the crew are. I also liked getting Prim and her brother Percy’s points of view. It was fun to see Prudence from their perspectives too. Rodrigo’s morality was an interesting discussion throughout (as was the book club) plus what we found out about Anitra and the support they gave her.

Dislikes: I wanted a little more adventure in South America.

Overall I enjoyed myself and I’m glad we got to see so much growth with Primrose. She keeps her personality but doesn’t let societal expectations get in the way of her real happiness in the end.
