Publisher's Summary

Within the Sanctuary of Wings is the conclusion to Marie Brennan's thrilling Lady Trent Memoirs.

After nearly five decades (and, indeed, the same number of volumes), one might think they were well acquainted with 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 - 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.

    As a slow reading dyslexic I discovered audio books eight years ago. Since then my world opened in amazing ways.

    "A great ending for a great series"

    A really great read that I enjoyed listening to from start to finish. Who would have thought that one of the best series I've ever read about the joys and hazards field work as a scientist would be so fantastical.

    Ms. Reading does a fantastic job as the narrator bring the characters to live. She IS Lady Trent to my mind.

    Highly recommend the series for any young people interested in biology or the social sciences. You be hard press to find a better real world role model.

    "THE BEST ENDING TO A SERIES EVER"

    I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS BOOK!
    Marie Brennan did not disappoint with this final book in the series. I didn't get even close to predicting her final discovery. Once I read the plot twist I had to stop reading and just absorb it. It was probably the happiest I have been all year reading this book! I am sad to see this story come to a close, but Brennan couldn't have written a better ending! This is definitely my best book of the year.

    "Great conclusion to a series"

    This series deserves much more good press than it needs and this is an excellent way to cap it off.

    "Jaw dropping finale"

    It was hard to imagine how Lady Trent could top the discovery of the Watcher's Heart, but naturally she manages. This final volume does not disappoint in that regard. As usual she is well aided by coincidence and pure luck to be in exactly the right place at the right time, and the cascade of coincidence gets a little over the top at times, but it's good fun, for all that. I thought this installment lacked a little of the emotional punch of the last, largely because the big discovery comes in the middle rather than at the end, but also, I think, because the discovery of the Watchers Heart calls to mind a particular real world discovery, whereas the events of this story are more fanciful. Still, a satisfying conclusion to an enjoyable series.

    Kate Reading, as always, does a spectacular job of voicing Isabella at different stages of life. Listening to her is always a pleasure.
