Waterstones Says

Brennan’s playful faux-memoir of pre-eminent dragonologist Isabella Trent is a delightful pastiche of Georgian Britain with certain somewhat fantastical dimensions. Trent is an enchanting companion and her life story a rollicking feminist take on period literature as well as a spectacular fantasy adventure.

Everyone knows Isabella, Lady Trent, to be the world's preeminent dragon naturalist. Here at last, in her own words, is the true story of a pioneering spirit who risked her reputation, prospects, and her life to satisfy scientific curiosity; of how she sought true love despite her lamentable eccentricities; and of her thrilling expedition to the mountains of Vystrana, where she made discoveries that would change the world.
