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.… (més)

First, I want to say that I haven't read any of the previous books in The Memoirs of Lady Trent series. However, it has been one that I have been curious about for some time. As a fantasy fan can't I help but find the books in this series very appealing. The covers for the books are fabulous and I found the idea of an alternative world set in the early 20th century with dragons intriguing. Now, since the book didn't have many maps can't I say for sure how similar the world in this series is to ours, and all the countries have different names. But, it does feel like reading an alternative Victorian-era book.

READ THE REST OF THE REVIEW OVER AT FRESH FICTION! ( )

Fantastic -- I love how committed Brennan is to her worlds and to her character's voice -- it makes the whole proposition that much more satisfying and believable. Boy, did I not see the events of this memoir coming, and what a pleasure to experience them. Great finale. ( )

I enjoyed the whole series and wonder if she will write more about that world. ( )
  Wren73 | Mar 4, 2022 |
Starting off 2022 by finishing this wonderful series. One of my goals for the year is to review just about all the books I read, so here goes!

Within the Sanctuary of Wings continues the adventures of Isabella, Lady Trent. Each of the previous four books in the series has been a self-contained adventure, but with some unresolved plotlines clearly building toward a larger, unifying story. Apart from the hints of an impending war, the bigger unresolved questions clearly centered on the Draconeans and the ruins left behind by their civilizations.

This book follows roughly the same pattern as the rest of the series - Isabella and her colleagues are off to a new part of the world to make new discoveries, helped and hampered by the political machinations of her home country and others. In addition to the usual dragon science, which is always a joy to read about, Brennan neatly weaves together the threads she's left hanging throughout the series to create one last masterful reveal.

Overall this was a satisfying conclusion to an absolutely delightful series. While I could read about Isabella's adventures forever, I feel like my questions were answered and I'm satisfied with where this book leaves things. Still planning to eagerly devour the next book focused on her granddaughter very soon, though! ( )

Even recognizing there were clues throughout the entire series, I thought the big discovery in this finale was a bit absurd. However, Brennan played it out as realistically as possible for the world she built, and I did enjoy it. I LOVED the epilogue, especially the first half: it came full circle from Isabella in the first book and delivered one of the most satisfying thematic wrap-ups I've encountered in an epilogue. ( )
