Set in turn of the century London, The Friday Society follows the stories of three very intelligent and talented young women, all of whom are assistants to powerful men: Cora, lab assistant; Michiko, Japanese fight assistant; and Nellie, magician's assistant. The three young women's lives become inexorably intertwined after a chance meeting at a ball that ends with the discovery of a murdered mystery man.
It's up to these three, in their own charming but bold way, to solve the murder–and the crimes they believe may be connected to it–without calling too much attention to themselves. Set in the past but with a modern irreverent flare, this Steampunk whodunit introduces three unforgettable and very ladylike–well, relatively ladylike–heroines poised for more dangerous adventures.
I'm really hoping that I will like this book, I'm expecting a good plot and likable characters. I hope it will deliver. I've read a couple reviews, most have been positive so for now I'll just be waiting for it to come out (December 6th), then waiting for my library to get it (I already have a hold on it :D) and then I'll reading it and hopefully be enjoying a wonderful steampunk world!
