Within the Sanctuary of Wings by Marie Brennan (April 25, 2017 by Tor)

I’m so excited about this fifth book in the wonderful Memoir by Lady Trent series, but sadly, it is also going to be the last. I don’t know if I should cheer or cry. Well, at least I’ll have until next spring to come to terms with the idea that one of my favorite series will be ending.

Within the Sanctuary of Wings“The conclusion to the thrilling memoirs of Lady Isabella Trent and her legacy of dragon evolutionary research and anthropological adventures.

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.”

  1. The last book in a series is always bittersweet, especially if it’s a series you love. But at least the author is already writing other things so maybe that will help:-)

    • Yep, I’m looking forward to checking out her other books. I’m worried I’ll never like anything else more than her dragons though 🙂

  2. I still haven’t gotten around to this series but I hope the conclusion delivers for you – and with any luck, I’ll catch up by the time this one releases 🙂

    • I’m looking forward to Cold Forged Flame. In comparison, I think this series would be very different in tone since she’s writing memoir-style, but I think you’ll enjoy it too 🙂

  3. I didn’t know about this one! I haven’t read the previous volumes but they are on my TBR- I just love the idea of these. And those covers… this is another winner. Sorry to see the series end…

    Love the “Sanctuary of Wings” too- that just sounds awesome.

  4. I need to catch up – I have the last book but just haven’t had time with being so behind! Look at that cover though – I could look at it forever. Really sad that it’s the last one though. Why, why did the Rum have to go and why does this have to be the last one. Dear Ms Brennan, Please just keep writing these!!! Oh well, I suppose all good things come to an end.

    • LOL, why is the rum gone?! All good things do indeed have to come to an end, but hopefully Ms. Brennan will be writing loads more new stories in the future!
