Bookish and proper Percival Tunstell finds himself out of his depth when floating cities spirited plumbing and soggy biscuits collide in this delightful conclusion to NYT bestselling author Gail Carriger's The Custard Protoco. Oh my I cannot begin to do the final book in the Custard Protocol series justice I listened to it in audio and loved absolutely loved both the narration and the story It’s an A for me so five stars here In a Facebook live event Ms Carriger described Reticence as something like a “love letter” to her readersfans; that’s exactly what it felt like to me In addition to featuring a surprisingly enchanting love story of two nerdish awkward characters Ms Carriger gives plenty of time to other key characters not just from the Custard Protocol books but also from the original Parasol Protectorate series and the Finishing School seriesAlthough the book is told from the POV of many characters including Spoo the feisty deckling the main story features Percival Tunstall son of Ivy from the original Parasol Protectorate series and the new ship’s doctor ArsenicAs the book opens Arsenic the daughter of Preshea from the Finishing School series is waiting to apply for the job of doctor on the Spotted Custard Arsenic spotted an ad for a doctor who must tolerate “explosions and cats” and figured this was the perfect job for her Arsenic’s interview with the group and pre uestions by Spoo was delightful and of course she gets the job The whole cast then uickly heads out to the wedding of the very pregnant Rue to uesnell Percy is almost instantly captivated by Arsenic and Arsenic is intrigued by him While Percy and Arsenic’s romance is the main thread of the book it’s also filled with the group’s usual adventures which take them from London to Egypt to Japan Along the way we’re introduced to some new forms of shapeshifters and get to catch up with familiar characters In addition to revisiting all of the leading characters from earlier books in the series Rue uesnell Tasherit and Prim we’re also treated to many other key characters including Spoo Bumbersnoot Virgil Alexia Conall Lord Akeldama “Auntie” Aggie and so many I listened to a video in which Ms Carriger discusses Reticence She promises that while Reticence is the end of the Custard Protocol series it’s not the end of the Parasolverse a relief to me as the ending rather felt like the end Her three novella lines will continue and there’s a possibility of a YA series set much earlier in the Parasolverse timeline A word about the narration Moira uirk IS the voice of the series for me At this point I cannot imagine reading the books in print Ms uirk has given such a uniue voice to each key character in the series that she’s brought them to life for me And I was delighted to hear Spoo chirp out with “Aye Aye Lady Captain” at numerous points in the book I cannot imagine reading Reticence as a standalone So many seemingly minor incidents would have no meaning to someone who has not read the prior books in this series as well as the full Parasol Protectorate and Finishing School series As for me I think it’s time for a re listen of the Finishing School series The glimpses of key characters in Reticence made me remember just how much I loved that series

    So sad to be at the end of this series but the author rounded it all off beautifully Everyone who needed one ended up with a partner another generation was begun key to another series one day perhaps and then Rue's wedding meant we got to revisit all the best characters from the past books It was delightfulBut then I find all of Gail Carriger's books delightful They are always fun reads light and totally entertaining no brain strain reuired She has also written lots and lots of books and continues to do so I am off now to discover which ones I have not read yet

    35 such a sweet ending starsFor all that I haven't read Preshea's book yet it's on my list no worries SHE WOULD name her kids after poisons Good god Funnily enough up to this book I always read Percy as ace But I do love him and Arsenic together they're very sweetThe kitsune adventure was cool although the audiobook made me a bit uncomfortable but the found family trope is alive and well in this series and I LOVE it This book is complete fan service and I'm here for it Seeing the Finishing School ladies again and Alexia too made for such a grand curtain call Also that epilogue?? YES Gimme all the novellas nowww I hope Ms Gail comes back to this universe because I do love it so much

    25 STARS I hate to say this but Custard Protocol just is not for me I enjoyed Reticence than I did Prudence or Competence Imprudence is the best in the series by far but I was still left sorely disappointedReticence is all about Percy and his developing relationship with a doctor named Arsenic Only it’s not always about that at all This fourth in the series reads as an “I want to bring in all my other characters from previous works to say farewell” than as a cohesive fully drawn and plotted novel The cameos were great but forced Was I happy to see all these people that I really do love again? Of course But it didn’t feel natural to the plot at all I didn’t feel like these characters were “in character” so to speak They were just there as a plot device to give the younger bunch something to do Percy is somewhat less of a pollock in this one but only somewhat Honestly he and Prim just aren’t developed enough in my opinion to be able to carry whole novels And Rue who had great promise basically faded to a lovesick puppy eyes making caricature of herself Being in love doesn’t make you boring Or insipid Rue became bothuesnel was wasted almost the entire series There was a chance for some real character development and growth in this series but the author seems to have sacrificed it for forced romance and statements about being accepting of all sexual preferences It felt like one big social statement and that is NOT what Carriger has taught us to expect from her work In the end the cameos were nice but unnecessary as they added literally nothing to the story except plot devices and veiled statements My dear Lord Akeldama was also wasted The epilogue in particular really irritated me It was all nicely tied up with no real explanation of why any of it was done except foryep you guessed it LOVE And while it worked fine for Harry Potter it doesn’t work for a series that is supposed to be steampunk fantasy I will forever love her first two series I have The Parasol Protectorate on constant audiobook rotation I always enjoy The Finishing School I look forward to any other novellas based on characters from those series But this series? A huge disappointment

    A cute satisfying ending to the Custard Protocol series Gail Carriger's fans will absolutely want to read this and see how the adventure turns out I didn't uite love the POV throughout this book certain characters are sidelined or mostly off stage which left me a little bit hungry Still it's a fun wrap up to a charming series and well worth reading

    Retience marks the end of an era which makes it an extremely difficult book to review Gail Garriger's Parasolverse follows three generations of characters spanding from the 1850s and ending in 1901 Coupled with ancient mythological history Retience encompasses the totality of the series and ties up loose ends but leaves room for narratives🍶🍶🍶The plot of Reticence is fairly straightforward locate and rescue The Wallflower a spy and investigate a new shifter species in Japan Rue is pregnant Prim newly in love and Percy is well just Percy What makes this a strong entry in the series is the reunion of all the major players Rue is the perfect character to bridge all the generations The reunion was my favorite aspect of the book The older generation has a special place in my heart Dare I say my favorite These young bucks know nothing of the struggle in my grump old man voice Also the introduction of Dr Arsenic Ruthven and her parentage is a major whopper I instantly redownload a book in the Delightfully Deadly series to reread🍶🍶🍶Percy and Arsenic take center stage I adored Percy's neurodivergence His beauty comparisons to insects and animals tickled me to no end Arsenic is just as unconventional as Percy the perfect tinder match for the oft misunderstood scientist She's an awesome addition to the Parasolverse🍶🍶🍶Gail continues to build upon the Parasolverse to the point of saturation term used in the series and I'm here for all of it In Retience the adventure is fun and the science is confusing but that's always the case with me and science However Gail continues to utilize her characters in unexpected ways in the Parasolverse 🍶🍶🌈🌈🌈🌈 4 rainbows If you've read Gail you understand

    Lacking in plot and consisting largely of a relatively unromantic romance That said I actually liked the romance at least intellectually because Percy and Arsenic fall in love merely by reading together and sometimes having deep conversations about their various overlapping interests There's no passion there that I ever felt but there's a deep connection of the truly similar and there's no doubt they'll live happy lives together It's generally not the stuff of romance novels but there's a lot to be said for feeling truly comfortable with someone and for an introvert there's little sentiment powerful than not minding the company of anotherAside from that as I said Reticence dearly lacked in plot which is a bit weird for a steampunk adventure If the romance had had plot or really any sort of character arc for either that might have worked but nothing happens but uippiness for the first half of the book At about the 50% mark the actual plot involving a trip to Japan to search for a missing spy and find a new kind of supernatural begins However even then it's not much of a plot and it all comes together uite conveniently and frankly didn't make a ton of sense to meStill I did enjoy the book throughout despite those problems because I do rather enjoy uippiness and the silly humor Carriger writes so well A weird book this one though
