Publisher's Summary

Devoted readers of Lady Trent's earlier memoirs, A Natural History of Dragons and The Tropic of Serpents, may believe themselves already acquainted with the particulars of her historic voyage aboard the Royal Survey ship Basilisk, but the true story of that illuminating, harrowing, and scandalous journey has never been revealed - until now.
Six years after her perilous exploits in Eriga, Isabella embarks on her most ambitious expedition yet: a two-year trip around the world to study all manner of dragons in every place they might be found. From feathered serpents sunning themselves in the ruins of a fallen civilization to the mighty sea serpents of the tropics, these creatures are a source of both endless fascination and frequent peril. Accompanying her is not only her young son, Jake, but a chivalrous foreign archaeologist whose interests converge with Isabella's in ways both professional and personal.
Science is, of course, the primary objective of the voyage, but Isabella's life is rarely so simple. She must cope with storms, shipwrecks, intrigue, and warfare, even as she makes a discovery that offers a revolutionary new insight into the ancient history of dragons.

What a great blend of scientic fantasy...

or maybe it's fantastical science, either way, if science had been this cool when I was young I would have followed a very different path!!! And what a refreshing twist a true classic - Dune!!!

Keep it coming!

Love this series! 34e book as good as the 2nd one

I'm still very impressed with the depth of research and the storytelling that Marie Brennan brings to the Memoirs of Lady Trent series.

An excellent series. This book deals mainly with sea dragons, although there are many other adventures that are part of the journey.

Terrific!
