Booklist Review

Whose cuisine will reign supreme? In this volume, Sebastian, Lord Phantomhive's devilishly good butler, shows that he is skilled at more than just violence and tea. Sebastian must prepare a curry excellent enough to win his lord the Royal Warrant at the upcoming Curry Festival, thus exacting revenge on competitor Harold West Jeb. Jeb's curry chef, however, is Agni, Prince Soma of India's own butler and the man with th. Right Hand of God. The detailed drawings and explanations of curry's historical significance in British and Indian culture are sure to satisfy fans of butler, Victorian, and foodie manga.--Mack, Candic.
