So, Gentle Reader, in addition to cover copy there's promotional material copy for a book these days. By that they mean the wordage used in online venues, bookstore pamphlets and other advertising. I got special permission from Orbit to let you guys see the Prudence extra copy first!
Here you go...
ON BEHALF OF QUEEN, COUNTRY... AND THE PERFECT POT OF TEA.
When Prudence Alessandra Maccon Akeldama (Rue to her friends) is given an unexpected dirigible, she does what any sensible female would under similar circumstances -- names it the Spotted Custard and floats to India in pursuit of the perfect cup of tea.
But India has more than just tea on offer. Rue stumbles upon a plot involving local dissidents, a kidnapped brigadier's wife, and some awfully familiar Scottish werewolves. Faced with a dire crisis and an embarrassing lack of bloomers, what else is a young lady of good breeding to do but turn metanatural and find out everyone's secrets, even thousand-year-old fuzzy ones?
