This story finds Dimity all grown up from the Finishing School and working as a successful spy for her Majesty’s government. It seems that she has feelings for her handler the War Office has given her for a mission into a vampire hive that is going Goth. Dimity and Sir Crispin must play husband and wife as they work to turn this failing hive around before the vampire queen will have to be staked. A few characters from the Parasol Protectorate make a cameo with makes this story all the more fun. A sweet story with the additional of finding out more about hives and how they work outside of London.
Delightful romance for Dimity, and ridiculous rescue of a teetering hive. Interpretive ballet, indeed. Such fun!
I love when Carriger's books focus on a particular household (in this case a vampire hive, in previous stories a werewolf pack). The pure chaos of all the characters and one person, who is also chaos, trying to wrangle them is absolutely delightful. Dimity and Cris are so stupid (for each other) and I love them. It was great to see Pillover again, even briefly. The empowerment and validation Justice received from literally every character to be herself without fuss (aside from, of course, the paramount business of clothes shopping) made my heart swell.
This is an absolute joy of a book. Dimity is a force of goodness and competence. The hive she visits is perfection that I would love to read more about.

Parasol Universe (4.2)
A vampire hive descending into madness. A beautiful spy with a sparkly plan. The bodyguard who must keep them from killing each other.New York Times bestselling author Gail Carriger brings you a charming story of love, espionage, and Gothic makeovers set in her popular Parasolverse. SPY Dimity Plumleigh-Teignmott, code name Honey Bee, is the War Office's best and most decorative fixer. She's sweet and chipper, but oddly stealthy, and surprisingly effective given the right incentives. VERSUS KNIGHT Sir Crispin Bontwee was knighted for his military service, but instead of retiring, he secretly went to work for the War Office. Mostly he enjoys his job, except when he must safeguard the Honey Bee. Neither of them are vampire experts, but when Nottingham Hive goes badly Goth, only Dimity can stop their darkness from turning bloody. And only Crispin can stop an enthusiastic Dimity from death by vampire. In a battle for survival (and wallpaper), Dimity must learn that not all that sparkles is good, while Cris discovers he likes honey a lot more than he thought. "This intoxicatingly witty parody will appeal to a wide cross-section of romance, fantasy and steampunk fans." ~ Publishers Weekly, starred review (Soulless) Spinning off from the Finishing School series, featuring deadly ladies of quality, this story stands alone but chronologically follows Poison or Protect. It's Cold Comfort Farm meets Queer Eye meets What We Do In The Shadows from the author of the Parasol Protectorate books, perfect for fans of Julia Quinn, Jodi Taylor, or Meljean Brook. Delicate Sensibilities? Contains fraternizing vampires and one very curious young lady, who asks about it, sometimes in detail but mostly in retrospect. May also involve excessive use of velvet, melodramatic poetry, and the strategic application of interpretive ballet.
