"Attentive readers of Lady Trent's earlier memoir, A Natural History of Dragons, are already familiar with how a bookish and determined young woman named Isabella first set out on the historic course that would one day lead her to becoming the world's premier dragon naturalist. Now, in this remarkably candid second volume, Lady Trent looks back at the next stage of her illustrious (and occasionally scandalous) career. Three years after her fateful journeys through the forbidding mountains of Vystrana, in which she lost her husband, the widowed Mrs. Camherst defies family and convention to embark on an expedition to the savage, war-torn continent of Eriga, home of such exotic draconian species as the grass-dwelling snakes of the savannah, arboreal tree snakes, and, most elusive of all, the legendary swamp-wyrms of the tropics. The expedition is not an easy one. Accompanied by both an old associate and a runaway heiress, Isabella must brave oppressive heat, merciless fevers, palace intrigues, gossip, and other hazards in order to satisfy her boundless fascination with all things draconian, even if it means venturing deep into the forbidden jungle known as the Green Hell . . . where her courage, resourcefulness, and scientific curiosity will be tested as never before"--… (més)

It seems a very long time ago that I read A Natural History of Dragons, but it was only three years, less really. Which is no time at all, really. And yet there are four books out in this series already. That’s very impressive when you look at some other fantasy fiction authors1. I have another two sitting on my to be read pile on my desk, so hopefully I’ll get to them pretty soon. I think I will, because I really enjoyed this book. I just really like Brennan’s style of writing. In many ways it feels like a Georgette Heyer book. Only not really because it has dragons and Heyer certainly never had those, and Lady Trent goes far beyond what is socially acceptable in her quest to understand dragons than any Heyer heroine did in her quest for romance.

But still, it has that sort of upper-English-class feel to it, and yes I’m aware that Scirling is not England, but there are, let us say, some resemblances.

It’s just a lovely read. And I really enjoy the way that Lady Trent seems of her time and society (quasi-Victorian) and yet aware of the sexism, racism and all the other -isms that are out there. She isn’t as aware of them as the reader might be, but she is certainly waking up to the realities of her world and how wrong they are.

Also, there are dragons. Although maybe not so many as I was hoping for. ( )

I quite enjoyed the first in this series (nominated en bloc for the 2018 Hugo) when I read it, but was rather less wowed by the second installment and will skip the rest. Our plucky hero, in a parallel Victorian era England, goes to her world's version Africa for adventures and dragons. ( )

Reading this book is like drinking slightly salty water. I can spend my time better, thanks. ( )
