Hey, guys. I’m only a few reviews behind. Ahem. Maybe, I’m like 8-9 behind. I’m also trying frantically to finish The Doomsday Book, so I’m going to be succinct, so I can finish. I’ve also got an enormous library stack and NOT ENOUGH TIME TO READ. You know, first world problems.
Last summer, while vacationing at my parents’ house, I read a big pile of library books (because there is NO WAY I am going without reading on vacation), including Marie Brennan’s Lady Trent Memoirs. I read the first three for CBR7 and have included the link here if you would like some basic background knowledge. I liked the first two well enough, but the third was dragony enough to excite me about her fourth book. And Ms. Brennan is extremely accommodating in that she didn’t make me wait too long to plunge into book 4, In the Labyrinth of Drakes. I’ll be interested to see where the rest of the series goes, but as far as Regency or Victorian-related fantasy goes, I’ll still take Mary Robinette Kowal’s Glamourist Histories series over this one, as far as re-reading and treasuring is concerned (seriously guys. Once you make it past Shades of Milk and Honey, the series gets so.much.better). Read my full review to find out why.
