Within the Sanctuary of Wings is the conclusion to Marie Brennan's thrilling Lady Trent Memoirs
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.

Brennan delights with this fifth and final memoir (after In the Labyrinth of Drakes) of Baroness Isabella Trent, adventuress and scholar of dragonkind in an alternate Victorian era. Lord Suhail Trent is delivering a lecture on the Draconean language when his wife, Lady Trent, is approached by a Yelangese man, Thu Phim-lat, with the astounding news that he has discovered a new type of dragon. This revelation is so compelling that Lady Trent resolves to journey to the place of discovery, even though it lies high in the Mrtyahaima Mountains on the far continent of Dajin, bordering on Yelang, with whom her own country is currently at war. Distance and difficulty do little to deter the indefatigable Lady Trent from making her way to the remote village of Hlamtse Rong. Above the village, she and her companions discover something completely unexpected: the remains of a bipedal dragon that perfectly matches ancient images of the Draconean gods. At that point, Lady Trent's last and greatest adventure truly begins. Lady Trent is the perfect heroine for this history-flavored fantasy romp.
