And next on the list of Books You Should All Read...

No Proper Lady, by Isabel Cooper.


The back cover describes it as "Terminator meets My Fair Lady", and... well, yeah. That's about it.

Briefly:
- Joan, daughter of Arthur and Leia, is a soldier from a post-apocalyptic future. A magical something-or-other went terribly wrong (think The Gift, for instance) and now humanity is losing ground every day.

- So, being at the end of their ropes, the soldiers decide to send Joan back in time - 200 years back in time - to find the man responsible for the eventual end of the world, and kill him.

- Joan comes back in time to 1888, where she meets Simon Grenville - a gentleman who also realises how terrible the villain is, and is happy to help Joan out.

- And the two of them hatch a plan. In which Joan becomes "Mrs MacArthur", and begins to learn enough upper class etiquette to work undercover...


It's really fun! And well written. And if you're in the mood for sci-fi, paranormal, historical, guerrilla warfare with a side-serve of romance... give it a go. It's worth reading.
