Minute Review: A Natural History of Dragons by Marie Brennan

A Natural History of Dragons by Marie Brennan (Memoir by Lady Trent, Book 1)
My Rating: 5 of 5 stars

Be warned, then: the collected volumes of this series will contain frozen mountains, fetid swamps, hostile foreigners, hostile fellow countrymen, the occasional hostile family member, bad decisions, misadventures in orienteering, diseases of an unromantic sort, and a plenitude of mud.
