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.
The 5th in the series is expected to be released on April 25th, 2017 by Tor Books
