Summary

Summary

Within the Sanctuary of Wings is the conclusion to Marie Brennan's thrilling Lady Trent Memoirs

After nearly five decades (and, indeed, the same number of volumes), one might think they were well-acquainted with the Lady Isabella Trent--dragon naturalist, scandalous explorer, and perhaps as infamous for her company and feats of daring as she is famous for her discoveries and additions to the scientific field.

And yet--after her initial adventure in the mountains of Vystrana, and her exploits in the depths of war-torn Eriga, to the high seas aboard The Basilisk, and then to the inhospitable deserts of Akhia--the Lady Trent has captivated hearts along with fierce minds. This concluding volume will finally reveal the truths behind her most notorious adventure--scaling the tallest peak in the world, buried behind the territory of Scirland's enemies--and what she discovered there, within the Sanctuary of Wings.

Editorial Reviews

Uncompromisingly honest and forthright [and] narrated in Brennan's usual crisp, vivid style.... Reader, lose no time in making Isabella's acquaintance. Kirkus Reviews, starred review, on The Tropic of Serpents
If you've ever secretly wished dragons were real, this story is for you. Fans of Naomi Novik and Mary Robinette Kowal will especially enjoy this book. RT Book Reviews on A Natural History of Dragons
Smart and nuanced...Overwhelmingly fun and a perfectly delightful [summer] read. io9 on The Tropic of Serpents
These chronicles have the power of fabulous and historic voyages, along with a wry wit that refuses to accept the standard notions of any era—past, present, or future. Locus on Voyage of the Basilisk
"These chronicles have the power of fabulous and historic voyages, along with a wry wit that refuses to accept the standard notions of any era—past, present, or future. Locus on The Memoirs of Lady Trent series
Isabella, Lady Trent, narrates her astounding adventures from volume to volume, blending Victorian pastiche and alternate-world fantasy with a distinctly pulp sensibility…now is the time to get acquainted. NPR on The Voyage of the Basilisk
“A conclusion that is perfectly triumphant and absolutely touching. Dense with descriptive detail and packed with asides and explanations, this book is not a fast-moving adventure, but instead is a journey full of imagination and intellectual passion that transports readers into a fully realized world, right alongside its forthright heroine.” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars, Top Pick!)
