A Natural History of Dragons book review

A Natural History of Dragons by Marie Brennan

"All the world, from Scirland to the farthest reaches of Eriga, know Isabella, Lady Trent, to be the world's preeminent dragon naturalist. She is the remarkable woman who brought the study of dragons out of the misty shadows of myth and misunderstanding into the clear light of modern science.

Here at last, in her own words, is the true story of a pioneering spirit who risked her reputation, her prospects, and her fragile flesh and bone to satisfy her scientific curiosity; of how she sought true love and happiness despite her lamentable eccentricities; and of her thrilling expedition to the perilous mountains of Vystrana, where she made the first of many historic discoveries that would change the world forever."

Goodreads' link to the book!

Written like a guide to dragons by a natural historian but also bringing the reader in on the adventure, though I was skeptical - this story had plenty of things to enjoy!

Stars: ✦✦.5

So as usual, I'll tell 4.5 things I liked about the book and 0.5 thing I didn't like.

+1 | The writing and entire concept

+1 | The humor, still keeping in mind the style and era

+1 | The imagination and details in the whole world

+1 | The characters and different types of relationships

+/-0.5 | The pace, though made sense with the whole natural history subject, at times made it slower to read

Read on lovelies,
