9780765331977: The Tropic of Serpents: A Memoir by Lady Trent
Présentation de l'éditeur :

"During these years I found myself accused of fornication, high treason, and status as the worst mother in all of Scirland...

Attentive readers are already familiar with how a bookish young woman named Isabella first set out on the historic course that would lead her to becoming the world s premier dragon naturalist. Three years after her journey through Vystrana, the illustrious (and occasionally scandalous) Lady Trent defies convention to embark on an expedition to the war-torn continent of Eriga, home of the legendary swamp-wyrm. Accompanied by an old associate and a runaway heiress, Isabella must brave oppressive heat, palace intrigues, gossip, and other hazards in order to satisfy her 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.

[U]ncompromisingly honest and forthright... with a heroine at once admirable, formidable and captivating. Reader, lose no time in making Isabella s acquaintance. - Kirkus (starred review).

Marie Brennan brings dragons into the Victorian world, and flawlessly so... [It] gives fantasy readers another good reason to enter Brennan s fantastical world. -Washington Post.

Every bit as exciting and engrossing as the first part of Lady Trent s memoir. Isabella s strength and bravery in the name of scientific advancement... is beyond admirable she s a model protagonist. -RT book reviews.

Lady Trent makes for an intrepid and pleasingly independent protagonist, mastering challenges both emotional and physical -Publishers Weekly.

Revue de presse :

"A great follow-up to A Natural History of Dragons... So whenever the third installment of this series is out, I'm totally on board." --Fantasy Book Cafe

"Exhilarating sections of writing, a cleverness regarding calling back prior details to prove their place in and worth to the plot when least expected, and of course the whole ethos of the series. That very Victorian attitude, and completely sustained historical writing style, still marks these books out. The Lady Trent Isabella to a select few is and always will be good company." --The Book Bag

"In the book, Todd Lockwood takes us through the places of natural beauty while Marie Brennan brings Lady Trent and her other characters to life in this intense and enigmatic adventure." ----SF Site

Description du livre Tor Books, United States, 2014. Hardback. État : New. 212 x 150 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. The thrilling adventure of Lady Trent continues in Marie Brennan s Tropic of Serpents . . . 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, Mrs. Camherst defies family and convention to embark on an expedition to the 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.
