In this highly anticipated sequel to the New York Times bestselling The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue, Felicity Montague must use all her womanly wits and wiles to achieve her dreams of becoming a doctor--even if she has to scheme her way across Europe to do it. A must-have for fans of Mackenzi Lee's extraordinary and Stonewall Honor-winning novel. A year after an accidentally whirlwind grand tour with her brother Monty, Felicity Montague has returned to England with two goals in mind--avoid the marriage proposal of a lovestruck suitor from Edinburgh and enroll in medical school. However, her intellect and passion will never be enough in the eyes of the administrators, who see men as the sole guardians of science. But then a window of opportunity opens--a doctor she idolizes is marrying an old friend of hers in Germany. Felicity believes if she could meet this man he could change her future, but she has no money of her own to make the trip. Luckily, a mysterious young woman is willing to pay Felicity's way, so long as she's allowed to travel with Felicity disguised as her maid. In spite of her suspicions, Felicity agrees, but once the girl's true motives are revealed, Felicity becomes part of a perilous quest that leads them from the German countryside to the promenades of Zurich to secrets lurking beneath the Atlantic.… (mer)

I liked it!! I was really considering giving this up in the beginning, before chapter 4 when it was just dreary(?), and I was just bored. But by the end, this turned out to be really enjoyable!! To be honest, this book was getting three stars at most, till Monty turned up at around 77%, and that was when I really, really got into the story. I mean I was invested after she met Sim, and read it with considerably more interest after that, but this was when I just couldn't stop reading. I liked the way the struggles of women were portrayed, and the pirates were really cool!! The petticoat was also cool ;) Not to be rude or offensive to anyone, but I really wanted Felicity to end up with you know who. I just felt the way some scenes were written, especially after Monty met her, seemed to suggest (to me) that she liked you know who. Also, I feel I would have enjoyed this a lot more had this been a standalone, in the sense that it wasn't a sequel to [b:The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue|29283884|The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue (Montague Siblings, #1)|Mackenzi Lee|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1492601464l/29283884._SY75_.jpg|49527118], because I personally like books with romance more than I like ones with platonic relationships. Again, I would like to say that I'm not trying to be rude or offensive to the many people out there who related more to Felicity than I did, it's just my personal opinion. I'm apologise if this review makes you feel that way. So far my journey with books from Mackenzi Lee has been really enjoyable, and I hope she continues to write such masterpieces. Can't wait to read the next book!! ( )

This book was... fine? I don't know if I've just grown a lot as a person since I read Gentlemen's Guide, and I don't necessarily need this kind of story the way I might have as a younger person. A lot of it to me felt kind of very This Is the Point, and there's something going on about Felicity's refusal to engage other pathways of medical care (nursing, for example,) that while Lee speaks a little bit to other parts of this in the afterword on history, comes across in a weird way. (Why a doctor versus a midwife etc.? What's going on class-wise with that?) Basically like the nuance that Lee has in the afterword.... doesn't really make it into the text itself, which, I know it's a YA book, but I also think teens deserve nuanced history in their historical fiction!

If folks are looking for an asexual MC, this is a cool book though I think that the struggle of like not having a Term Back Then for This hinders some of this because it feels like it has to be made So Glaringly Obvious that it feels like "yes we get it, it's great for her, oh we're going over it AGAIN?"

But some of this is really compelling--at times it really was suspenseful and felt like I had to keep turning pages to find out what happened--and again, I get that I'm not in a place where I Need this book the way some teens might Need this book, so I'm glad it exists for them. I just also wish there was a little more subtlety to it in some ways, if only because I didn't need to be hit with the point about Women in History the way some might. ( )

The Montague Siblings always manage to find the action. Felicity is out to become a doctor, despite England's refusal to let women go to school or practice medicine. So, she invites herself to a friend's wedding to meet her hero. Well, that leads her and her brother into all sorts of trouble, including dragons and pirates, not to mention bad men.

Highly entertaining. ( )

I like this as a sequel and as a completely new character arc. Felicity is seen as a capable asset, yet also a hindrance, in the first book in this series, [b:The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue|29283884|The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue (Montague Siblings, #1)|Mackenzi Lee|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1492601464l/29283884._SY75_.jpg|49527118], but this book is redemptive and clarifying. The idea of women being denied the opportunity to go to school is so sad, I really enjoy school and think I'd be half the person I am now if I didn't get the chance to follow my education as far as I can.

This book has more untrustworthy characters, so, by the end of the book, I was skeptical of any new characters. I would recommend this book to those who are okay with LGBT content, like sea monsters, appreciate piracy, and are okay with a kind of vague ending. ( )

I was really interested in this book after finishing The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue because Felicity was my favorite character from that book, so I was surprised to find that while I liked this book focused on her adventures, I didn't enjoy it quite as much as its precursor. Felicity manages to traverse much of Europe and more as she starts a journey at first to pursue further medical education, but she gets waylaid by other, more fantastical matters. Overall, it's fun reading, I enjoyed seeing Monty and Percy again, and, of course, I was happy to see Felicity have an adventure of her own. ( )
