WITHIN THE SANCTUARY OF WINGS
Brennan brings the fifth and final adventure of the fearless Lady Isabella Trent to a conclusion that is perfectly triumphant and absolutely touching. Dense with descriptive detail and packed with asides and explanations, this book is not a fast-moving adventure, but instead is a journey full of imagination and intellectual passion that transports readers into a fully realized world, right alongside its forthright heroine. Series devotees will no doubt revel in the evolution of the relationships, both personal and political, as well as with the power of Lady Trent’s final discovery and reward, and, like her, be able to retire with the contentment of a life well lived.
Nearly five decades after she first ventured off in search of dragons, Lady Isabella Trent has at last arrived at the conclusion of her memoirs, and the truth behind her most noteworthy expedition. Approached by a stranger with news of an unidentified dragon carcass high up in the mountains of Scirland, Lady Trent immediately sets out, braving treacherous conditions and a perilous political climate to find the truth, never dreaming of what was lying in wait for her within the place known as the Sanctuary of Wings.
