Review – Within the Sanctuary of Wings by Marie Brennan

I can’t believe the series is over. Though we had a rough start together I grew to love and adore these books and Lady Isabella Trent’s stories.

Much as has been the pattern with these books, it’s a bit of […]

Review – In the Labyrinth of Drakes by Marie Brennan

Another book, another whirlwind adventure with Lady Isabella Trent in the lead.

If you enjoyed the previous two books, then you’ll find the same […]

Immediately you’re thrown into that captivating voice of Isabella Trent as she recounts her days of adventuring. The Tropic of Serpents follows a similar pattern to the first book, detailing […]

Review – A Natural History of Dragons by Marie Brennan

“Either she’s birdbrained and you failed to make the situation clear to her — in which case she’ll be entirely your problem; I wash my hands of her — or she knows precisely what she’s letting herself in for.” Finally! A book about the science of dragons, not just how terrifying or powerful they are. As someone studying biology for a career, I fully appreciated the […]
