Publisher's Summary

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 and other hazards in order to satisfy her fascination with all things draconian. Her courage, resourcefulness, and scientific curiosity will be tested as never before.

    "another charmer"

    Victorian gentility, studied humour, a dig at colonialism, perfect narration and dragons! What more could anyone want?

    "An interesting story"

    I really enjoyed this and Marie's previous book. Not exactly high fantasy but gripping and interesting, with the novel style of a scientific memoir. I particularly enjoyed the representation of power and powerlessness over the politics that affect the main character. I think more books should use this style and I look forward listening to the next book.

    Story
    "There be dragons"

    In terra incognita there be dragons, but you have to go and look to find them. The trials and tribulations of Lady Trent going to a foreign country; where everything is strange, the climate is so hot and humid, unlike the temperate climate of home, and even the customs and peoples are exotic, making the job-in-hand more difficult, never mind the problems of your companions on the expedition too. This seems like a journal by a contemporary of the intrepid C19th Victorian traveller Isabella Bird.,

    It is fun to piece facts and fiction and enjoy the blending of the two. The narrator is just right for what I imagine the character of Lady Trent to be, something of an enlightened woman of her age with, of course an obsession for dragons driving her and everything for her. As this is true for may of us today, it is easy to identify and sympathies with the many frustrations and problems she encounters on her journey as well as her triumphs.
