This book has the honour of being the first book I’ve ever bought on release day. Sadly, it took nearly a year to find the time to read it. Definitely worth squeezing into my day.
This book is the sequel to Phoenix Rising, the first book of the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences. I quite liked the previous book and was excited to see what happened next for our brave protagonists.
Having listened to the Tales from the Archives podcast, I could clearly hear Pip and Tee as Eliza and Wellington. Both characters have unique and well defined voices that suit them.
The book was an exciting romp, with tears and amusement, and a final chapter that brought much satisfaction. I was glad Eliza made the choices she did. It was nice to see some of the office staff in action as well. Every person has more to them than we know. And the gadgets! Love a good gadget, I do.
If you like Phoenix Rising, you’ll definitely want to continue the story here. If you haven’t read that, then what are you waiting for?
The next book is expected to be out early next year, but is with a different publisher.
(Sorry for the shortness of this review, but a nice steampunk adventure has my mind off writing my own. I think that’s a compliment.)
