    1. 4 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum bibliosanctum/2017/04/25/It is with a heavy heart that I bid adieu to another one of my favorite series, but I am also glad that at long last I got to see all the ideas come to fruition in this fifth and final novel of Marie Brennan’s wholly unique Memoirs of Lady Trent. After all, Within the Sanctuary of Wings is everything a fan could want in a finale—a book that ends on a high note of hope and happiness while also deftly tying all the overall series theme [...]



    2. I admit, my main reaction was "oh, so that's what we've been building up to!" Now I want to reread the series with the knowledge of where it's going. It's really clever and well done and now I want a BBC miniseries with Maggie Smith playing Lady Trent as the narrator.


    3. First, I want to say that I haven't read any of the previous books in The Memoirs of Lady Trent series. However, it has been one that I have been curious about for some time. As a fantasy fan can't I help but find the books in this series very appealing. The covers for the books are fabulous and I found the idea of an alternative world set in the early 20th century with dragons intriguing. Now, since the book didn't have many maps can't I say for sure how similar the world in this series is to o [...]


    4. I can't believe the series is over. Though we had a rough start together I grew to love and adore these books and Lady Isabella Trent's stories. I finally got the answers to questions asked throughout the series but at the cost of finishing a riveting tale of a very talented woman.Much as has been the pattern with these books, it's a bit of a slow start in Within the Sanctuary of Wings but that doesn't last long. I was so excited to set off on this final adventure with Lady Trent and, let me t [...]


    5. Perfect ending to a lovely series of books. Questions answered and a new country to explore. I thought the books got better and better and this one made a very satisfying endingLady Trent and her memoirs now hold a very special place in my heart. I'm sure I'll revisit her tale someday.


    6. Read This Review & More Like It @ Ageless Pages Reviews!Within the Sanctuary of Wings is the fifth and final novel in Marie Brennan's anthropological fantasy series about a (usually scandalous, never boring) female dragon naturalist. It's Isabella's most daring adventure and biggest discovery yet -- and that's saying something if you know any of the details of Lady Trent's first four books. Even this far into the series, Brennan has creativity and imagination to keep her stories and characte [...]


    7. I kind of procrastinated on reading this book, or at least finishing it, because I didn’t want the adventures to be over. This is the concluding volume of Lady Trent’s memoirs, and I already miss her ‘deranged practicality’, her curiosity and drive, and the people around her. Still, it’s a worthy end to her story, concluding her major scientific studies with — well, I’d better be careful not to say too much. The series has been building up to this point, and I wouldn’t want to sp [...]


    8. Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy.WITHIN THE SANCTUARY OF WINGS is the rare, magical beast that manages to be both a fitting series finale as well as a complete and utter surprise. From start to finish this series draws much of it's emotional power from the constraints of its imaginary, historical world. The series finale uses those same constraints, carefully nurtured in the readers' minds, to deliver a surprise that made me gasp out loud.In the interest of avoiding spoilers, this rev [...]


    9. I could not review the end of this series better than Isabella herself does at the end of the book (no spoiler)"If there is any conclusion to my tale (apart from my death, which I hope is yet a good way off), it is that the heart of it will never truly end. Altough my memories are of course the story of my life and career, they are also a stroy of discovery: of curiosity, and investigation, and learning, not only regarding dragons but many other topics. I take comfort in knowing that others will [...]


    10. * * * * * 5 / 5Mini Review!Lady Trent is back at nearly forty years of age to put the final touches on her memoirs (I love the pictures in the back - she looks like Dame Maggie Smith, so distinguished!), chronicling the final discovery as regards the Draconeans. It features most of the prominent characters from the previous books - Tom, Suhail, and her son - plus a new character Thu. It follows in the same vein as the other books in the Lady Trent series: a expedition is planned to find some new [...]


    11. I feel kind of sad saying goodbye to Lady Trent I've grown quite fond of her. She was a kick-ass woman who refused to accept the sexism of her time and worked relentlessly to pursue her passion and fight for her rights. By all accounts she's pretty awesome, though she has the kind of luck that you have to wonder if it's maybe a little unrealistic even for a fantasy series.This last adventure wasn't the most exciting, but it was certainly the biggest discovery and it had it's moments. It had a li [...]


    12. The end.I am sad to see this series end but as Isabella herself says in her memoirs, the truly interesting parts has already happened. And I will take her word for it.In this one she braves the highest mountains in the world in search of new dragons. Andoh I can't say but there are secrets, revelations and things I did not see coming! Exciting stuff.I like Isabella, she so wants to explore and learn new things and here she feels she needs to get out in the field again. Her husband is trying to d [...]


    13. There's not much way to talk about what I'm interested in regarding this books, so spoilers! Be warned!This wraps up the Lady Trent memoirs, and I will miss her. A female naturalist who isn't great with people, who inadvertently gets involved in very political situations, and has a dry sense of humor. And dragons! In this book, we have our normal "how did we get all the way out here?" intro of about 70 pages. Isabella, Suhail, Tom and a few other hardy folk venture into this world version of the [...]


    14. 4.5 starsWithin the Sanctuary of Wings is the final book in the Memoirs of Lady Trent series, and I am sad I've reached the end. While the first two books weren't riveting, I stuck with the series and it was worth it. The final two books were excellent, as was the audiobook narrator. These were such a different type of fantasy read for me. Almost clinical at times, which makes sense given that they are supposed to be a memoir written by a very practical, scientific woman. But her friendships, ro [...]


    15. Feels like entire series has slowly/indirectly been building up to what happened in this one. Great book!


    16. This was a very good conclusion to the Lady Trent saga! It wasn't my favorite book of the five, but I am still left now with a desire to go back and read them all again.


    17. The Memoirs of Lady Trent, in which Marie Brennan has created a Victorian style naturalist who specializes in dragons, is a fun ride. In book five the Lady Trent is giving information of a possible new undiscovered dragon. And the adventure begins. The audio is narrated by the great Kate Reading, so the story flows effortlessly. If this is the end of the series a nice way to wrap it up, but I hope it is not the last.


    18. A satisfying conclusion to this five-book series set in an alternate Victorian England, with dragons. Recommended.


    19. 2.5 stars. I love the dragon naturalist part of these books. I do. But when that's all there is, it can be rather dry. I missed the human interaction and the story of Isabella herself we got the last book. And I really, really missed Tom in this book.


    20. A great end to a great series though to my mind it wasn't as strong as In the Labyrinth of Drakes but perhaps that was because I read it in print form rather than listening to the audiobook.


    21. Reviewed by Bill and Jana. Plotting and pace have always been the sticking points for me in the MEMOIRS OF LADY TRENT series by Marie Brennan, the reasons why the individual books have never climbed above a four-star rating for me and have at times dipped to three and a half. But what has never flagged for me has been my appreciation of that wonderful narrative voice, that of Lady Trent herself. Voice is the reason I kept reading these novels, and voice is what has finally led me here to the fif [...]


    22. I don't think I've ever been more exited for the conclusion of a series and sad that it's concluding! I don't ever recommend these books, because I can't think of who else would like them, but man these are right up my nerdy feminist alley!Update now that I've read it: what a great series! After the final revalations which were, looking back, alluded to so many times before by Lady Trent, I have to read the whole series again. And I'm delighted! Ultimately this series answers a question I'd neve [...]



    23. This was such a perfect conclusion to such an amazing series. I loved every bit of this story over all 5 books, and am so sad to say goodbye to these characters (and dragons).


    24. 3,5Leggermente meno piacevole rispetto al volume precedente: qui la Brennan ci propone quella che è stata la scoperta (quella con la S maiuscola) che ha fatto di Isabella una delle naturaliste più famose e stimate al mondo, tanto da aprirle finalmente le porte del Philosophers' Colloquium.Stanca di fare del lavoro puramente accademico e di limitarsi a vedere i successi linguistici del marito, Isabella si fa coinvolgere in un'avventura che la porterà sui picchi del Mrtyahaima (che corrisponde [...]


    25. 4/5 stars for the memoirs that contains 40% dragons, 25% history, 35% politics and 200% lady scientists. I really admire Lady Trent, she's my idol, along with Natalie Oscott who revolutionized our flight industry. This memoir (which was written like a hundred years ago) shed some light into the details of her unbelievable life and adventures and how she and her companions changed the world into what we know today, not only how we treat dragons, but her contributions as a feminist and role model [...]


    26. I'm so overwhelmed with the amount of information and feelings this last book of the series gave me. I want to talk about stuff that will spoil anyone who has yet to read it, but I'll refrain from doing that and just go ahead and say YES EVERYTHING I WANTED TO HAPPEN HAPPENED AND THIS IS BEAUTIFUL AND GOT ME TEARFUL AND EXCITED ABOUT MY OWN DREAMS WHICH IS EXACTLY WHAT EVERY GOOD BOOK SHOULD DO. I normally suffer from post-book depression but this little piece of a marvel is so well accomplished [...]


    27. Ending in a way that only Isabella Camherst (Lady Trent) could. Within the Labyrinth of Wings was as perfect as the series could end. There are all the pieces that make these novels so very enjoyable; stunning world building, interesting story and a passion of discovery from the characters that makes you want to go out and explore yourself. Most of all, these are books where you can read and put yourself perhaps a little more into the characters shoes than some other fantasy series. Isabella's f [...]


    28. Well, Brennan certainly saved the best for last, didn't she? From the trajectory of the previous books, I thought I knew what I was getting: a comical lady-nerd fumbling her way through an action-adventure story to learn new things and meet new people. I anticipated the return of Wilker, Suhail, Andrew, and Jake; I anticipated going to Yelang; I anticipated that despite the narrator's protestations that she is not an anthropologist, the author's anthropology background would shine through and cr [...]
