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

Prediction Book Tag

Hello everyone! Hope you’re having a nice weekend. I wasn’t paying attention and grabbed a hot pan last night, so that’s awesome. By the time you read this it’ll have been over a week, but whatevs, I thought you should know. Right now it’s 3 AM because I went to bed early and my husband woke me up when he came to bed around midnight and I couldn’t fall back asleep. So yay. Hence the blabbering.

Dani @ Mousai Books tagged me in the Prediction Book Tag well over a month ago, but I was doing a thing so I didn’t get to it. UNTIL TODAY. Since then I’ve been seeing this everywhere, so it’s probably just as well that I waited because now I’m pretty excited to see how this goes!

Also, someone tagged me in something like, two weeks ago, and I can’t find that tag anywhere. So if that was you, SORRY!

Prediction for my Next Read

Um, there’s no prediction here. I am a MAJOR planner. Probably because I don’t have fifteen million unread books sitting around my house. The only uncertainty here is order, because I don’t know when the books I ordered from the bookstore will arrive. Plus everything will just have to get put on hold when my Empire of Gold pre-order comes in. Duh. But in some order my next four reads are:
