Tomorrow from 6-7pm, Forbidden Planet in London will host Marie Brennan for a signing event! The author’s latest novel, IN THE LABYRINTH OF DRAKES was recently published by Titan Books in the UK. Here’s the synopsis…
The thrilling new book in the acclaimed fantasy series from Marie Brennan, as the glamorous Lady Trent takes her adventurous explorations to the deserts of Akhia.
Even those who take no interest in the field of dragon naturalism have heard of Lady Trent’s expedition to the inhospitable deserts of Akhia. Her discoveries there are the stuff of romantic legend, catapulting her from scholarly obscurity to worldwide fame. The details of her personal life during that time are hardly less private, having provided fodder for gossips in several countries.
As is so often the case in the career of this illustrious woman, the public story is far from complete. In this, the fourth volume of her memoirs, Lady Trent relates how she acquired her position with the Royal Scirling Army; how foreign saboteurs imperiled both her work and her well-being; and how her determined pursuit of knowledge took her into the deepest reaches of the Labyrinth of Drakes, where the chance action of a dragon set the stage for her greatest achievement yet.
Titan Books has also published the first three novels in the Memoirs of Lady Trent series: A NATURAL HISTORY OF DRAGONS, THE TROPIC OF SERPENTS and VOYAGE OF THE BASILISK. Brennan’s previous series, the Onyx Court urban fantasy, is being re-issued by Titan Books this year, and includes: MIDNIGHT NEVER COME (out now), IN ASHES LIE (June 14th) and A STAR SHALL FALL (September 13th).
