The Princess Saves Herself in the End by Amanda Lovelace – a book review

amandalovelaceprincess – 5 Stars

Wow, my words and writing style are inadequate to convey the impact this small powerful book holds.

Powerful! Raw. Courageous. Brutally honest.

This is a book of prose. I know there are some who say this is not poetry; it’s too simplistic, just a few words, not epic. It is simple in it’s format, but that doesn’t mean the written work isn’t poetry. And simple doesn’t mean bad. It’s straightforward. It’s brave. It resonates truth. Amanda’s Lovelace’s truth.

This is one I will revisit often.

A Natural History of Dragons by Marie Brennan ~ Book review

natural-history-of-dragons 5 stars

Absolutely one of the best beginnings of a series I have read in a long time! I loved this and will definitely be reading the following book [book:The Tropic of Serpents|17910078].

Terrific story written in a Memoir style of a woman who is passionate about dragons and her quest to study them, draw them and know the behaviour of dragons.

I loved the way this book was written and had to remind myself several times that Lady Trent was a fictional character. Think of her as the Dian Fossey of Dinosaurs.

And the illustrations of Trent’s drawings scattered throughout the book are wonderful.

I hghly  recommend this novel for anyone who is interested in the lore of dragons and a strong female anthropologist ahead of her time.  (And yes, I know, it is fiction, but the writing is wonderful and you tend to forget that this is not a true historical account; it’s that good!)

I will definitely be reading all in this series.
