Big congrats to Marie Brennan, whose novel, A NATURAL HISTORY OF DRAGONS, won the 2016 French Prix Imaginales award, for the best translation! This book is the first in Brennan’s Memoirs of Lady Trent series, and has had great acclaim both in France and in the U.S. In a starred review, Publishers Weekly raved: “Brennan’s world-building is wonderfully subtle, rendering a familiar land alien with casual details. Fans of fantasy, science, and history will adore this rich and absorbing tale of discovery.” After giving the novel 4.5/4.5 stars, RT Book Review called it “a tale historical fiction lovers and fantasy fans alike will adore. Isabella is a heroine readers will root for.”
With the fifth and final Lady Trent book coming out next year, now is the perfect time to catch up on this great series.
