Lawyer, mother, avid reader. Game host extraordinaire! Partner in crime to Obsidian Black Plague! My bookish weaknesses include classics, fantasy, YA, and agreeing to read more books than is even remotely possible.
I love this series so much.
I don't know Marie Brennan, but I could swear that she wrote it thinking of me. The best way to describe it is fictionalized Freya Stark/Mary Kingsley/Lady Isabella Bird tromping about the world researching dragons.
There is something about the intrepid lady explorer in skirts that totally, totally rings my bell.
I love it.
