"With odd inventions, beautifully described clothing, and skilled heroines, this alternate history offers much to enjoy." — Publishers Weekly
"...an overall sense of frothy fun prevails, bolstered by winks at genre convention (much is made of the always-foggy London crime scenes) and by three kick-ass females with complementary strengths and distinctive personalities." — The Horn Book
"The Friday Society
is an explosively entertaining concoction–a mystery and an adventure folded around complex themes, draped in rich historical settings, spiced with Steampunk cool and laced with sharp contemporary wit. It's a firecracker of a read, packed with a trio of feisty, fiery, fiercely intelligent heroines worth rooting for. More please!" — Lesley Livingston, author of the internationally bestselling Wondrous Strange
