In the Labyrinth of Drakes
In the Labyrinth of Drakes: A Memoir by Lady Trent | Marie Brennan
33 posts | 34 read | 30 to read
In the Labyrinth of Drakes: the thrilling new book in the acclaimed fantasy series from Marie Brennan, as the glamorous Lady Trent takes her adventurous explorations to the deserts of Akhia. Even those who take no interest in the field of dragon naturalism have heard of Lady Trent's expedition to the inhospitable deserts of Akhia. Her discoveries there are the stuff of romantic legend, catapulting her from scholarly obscurity to worldwide fame. The details of her personal life during that time are hardly less private, having provided fodder for gossips in several countries. As is so often the case in the career of this illustrious woman, the public story is far from complete. In this, the fourth volume of her memoirs, Lady Trent relates how she acquired her position with the Royal Scirling Army; how foreign saboteurs imperiled both her work and her well-being; and how her determined pursuit of knowledge took her into the deepest reaches of the Labyrinth of Drakes, where the chance action of a dragon set the stage for her greatest achievement yet.

Lady Trent is once again off to foreign climes (think Northwest Africa), where an agreement betwixt 2 nations has her building a breeding program for the native dragon population. Nothing ever runs quite so smoothly though and there're kidnappings, assassination attempts, & a bit of romance too. There's only 1 book left in the series and I will be sad when it ends because who doesn't want to spend time travelling around the world studying dragons?

More light escapism. Desert setting this time.

I wish the quest companions had more life in them, particularly Tom. Author seems to do a passable job introducing them, then they just sort of either fade into the background or support the main character. More noticeable in this one because no major quest companions were introduced - it's people from previous books.

Still a light fun read though.

Settings Really high Librarything review lol. The books are kinda sameish - think anyone who doesn't like the formula will have bailed by now. And anyone who does could read 20. 1mo

I love this book so much, but of course my favourite part is when -- well, I'd better not say. Spoilers! It's a delight, anyway.

Also a delight, Breakfast Bun is still here. His physical symptoms are still horrible and saddening, but he's eating, drinking and reacting with joy to us and to slices of banana. We're not giving up. #BunniesofLitsy

Breakfast Bun is still very sick and we don't know if he will pull through, so I'm abandoning my carefully constructed to read list for something familiar and comforting. Isabella is such a awesome protagonist.

Continued good thoughts for our bunnyboy would be appreciated.

Another fantastic book in this delightful series! Such wonderful reads that are so easy to just fall into. Isabella is a charming character and I truly adore her. As usual, the illustrations were gorgeous, I just want more of them. I also want even more information about the ancient civilizations and the history of this world as well as a proper world map. But so good!!

It's been quite a while since I've read an entire book in a day, and oh how I've missed it. I couldn't stop reading! This is my favorite of the series so far.

What can I even say? Isabella is my hero. I love her relationships with everyone in this book. Andrew, Tom, Suhail. They're all just so perfect ❤️❤️❤️

This is probably my favorite of the bunch, I have so much love for this world and these characters. Isabella has kept me company for about a week now, but unfortunately I must languish on the library hold list for the 5th book. My evening seems bleak with the lack of dragons 😭

TheBookKeepers Oh I love books about dragons! May have to check these out! 😍 have u read Naomi Noviks series? 2y
Somasis @TheBookKeepers Not yet! Its on my list, I have read Uprooted, which I loved, so I'm excited to read more 2y
TheBookKeepers Just finished uprooted & loved it!! I've read the first few books in her temeraire (dragon) series & really loved it! I read three in a row tho and took a little break. I'm thinking its time to pick those up again! 2y

The fourth book in an excellent series set in a Victorian-esque fantasy world about a lady scientist who studies dragons in the wild. Full of politics as is the entire series but also full of the wonder of new discoveries both natural and archaeological. Some past plot points come to head in a very satisfactory way for me at least. The biggest flaws are the countries and places are obviously just our world's locations and cultures with new names.

This series is so good. So good, I stayed up well past my bedtime to finish this book. READ IT

iread2much The first one was so good I'm afraid to read the rest of the books in case they aren't as good 😅 2y
Texreader Love the cover! 2y
KtheBookwyrm @iread2much it took me a while to pick this series up because the covers were so beautiful and they sounded too good, I figured they'd be awful. They're not, they're wonderful! I stayed up way too late to finish Labyrinth and can't wait to get my hands on Sanctuary. 2y

This was an excellent addition to the series. It continued the trend of exceeding the previous book in writing, character development, and adventure. I am thoroughly entranced by these books. And of course, you can never go wrong with dragons!

This is printed in rust ink. The previous one in the series was in blue ink. I put the bookmark here for comparison, because i felt like it was hard to see in the other pictures i took. It's not difficult to read. Pretty cool.

I really should be reading "Around the World in 80 Days" or "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea". I have "The Explorers Guild as Well", but I'm not sure if the writing is my cup of tea. Maybe I'll have June's theme be all the books I didn't get to/finished in previous months. #dragons #stillnewlandsthough

Now playing. [its Friday. Today started out well until I got rear-ended on the way to work (not serious), and now I'm out of it and just want to go home to my copy of empire of storms. Alas, I must adult and work. Le sigh]

I loved this book! As much as I love the fact that Isabella is a scientist I love even more that she seems like someone I'd be friends with.

So who doesn't love this series? Such a great combo of fantasy, humor, alternate history, and ... dragons. Oh and a heroine to admire. Don't miss these books.
