Monty is a roguish playboy, Percy is his quieter (and less conspicuous) best friend, and Felicity is Monty's bookish younger sister. Together they embark on a Grand Tour that collapses into piracy, thievery, and hijinks, all set in the height of the Bourbon empire in Europe.
I was a little hesitant about this book at first because Monty is a difficult person to like, but it very quickly grew on me. He's a total cad of course, with a penchant for sex and booze and wild nights out, but Mackenzie Lee did a fantastic job of making him three dimensional and easy to connect with. I was rooting for Percy and Monty from the beginning, and it KILLED me that by the last 50 pages they were still trying to figure it out, what with pirates and all.
This is a book that you want to race through, but never want to end. I'm so excited for the sequel to come out, and I will probably re-read this at least once before Felicity' book comes out.
