We’re pleased to announce that the first book in Marie Brennan’s Lady Trent series, A NATURAL HISTORY OF DRAGONS, is a finalist for the World Fantasy Award for Best Novel! She’s in good company on the shortlist with titles like Neil Gaiman’s The Ocean at the End of the Lane. It’s been a stellar year and a half for the series, with the first book praised by NPR, Slate, Booklist, and Kirkus, among others, and was a semifinalist for the 2013 Goodreads Choice Award. The second book, THE TROPIC OF SERPENTS, received a starred Kirkus Review, and was also reviewed by The New York Times and The Washington Post. Being a finalist for the World Fantasy Award is just the latest (and perhaps brightest) feather in the cap of this series. The winners will be announced on November 9th at the World Fantasy Convention in Arlington, VA.
