About book A Natural History Of Dragons (2013)

This could be the story of a Victorian woman naturalist struggling to be taken seriously in a male dominated world but this is a fantasy novel and Isabella lives in a land called Scirling and longs to study dragons, otherwise the situations are very similar. Isabella's journey towards achieving her aim makes for very enjoyable reading and I loved the fact that the focus of the book is on her scientific ambitions rather than romantic relationships. I'm already looking forward to reading more of Isabella's adventures. This delightful book presents itself as a Victorian-era (ish) memoir, and sticks wonderfully to it, even going so far as to have the sub-headings for each chapter that one would find in such a period piece. The voice is charming, Lady Trent is a compelling character (in this volume, we see her in childhood through her late teens), and the adventure in the latter half of the book keeps the pages turning. The main story develops into a mystery that, in many ways, reminds me of the Sherlock Holmes novel Hound of the Baskervilles. All in all, a fantastic read that had me leaping to buy the second volume. I look forward to many adventures to come!
