Publisher's Summary

Three years after her journey through Vystrana, the illustrious (and occasionally scandalous) Lady Trent defies convention to embark on an expedition to the war-torn continent of Eriga, home of the legendary swamp-wyrm.
Accompanied by an old associate and a runaway heiress, Isabella must brave oppressive heat and other hazards in order to satisfy her fascination with all things draconian. Her courage, resourcefulness, and scientific curiosity will be tested as never before.


What the Critics Say

"Uncompromisingly honest and forthright...with a heroine at once admirable, formidable and captivating. Reader, lose no time in making Isabella’s acquaintance." (KIRKUS)
"Lady Trent makes for an intrepid and pleasingly independent protagonist, mastering challenges both emotional and physical." (Publishers Weekly)

Victorian gentility, studied humour, a dig at colonialism, perfect narration and dragons! What more could anyone want?

An interesting story

I really enjoyed this and Marie's previous book. Not exactly high fantasy but gripping and interesting, with the novel style of a scientific memoir. I particularly enjoyed the representation of power and powerlessness over the politics that affect the main character. I think more books should use this style and I look forward listening to the next book.
