Waiting On Wednesday #105 - Voyage of the Basilisk


Waiting On Wednesday, where we put the spotlight on upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating, is hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine.

This week's choice is -

Voyage of the Basilisk (Lady Trent's Memoirs #3) - Marie Brennan
ISBN - 9780765331984
Publisher - Tor
Expected release date - March 1 2015

'Devoted readers of Lady Trent’s earlier memoirs, A Natural History of Dragons and The Tropic of Serpents, may believe themselves already acquainted with the particulars of her historic voyage aboard the Royal Survey Ship Basilisk, but the true story of that illuminating, harrowing, and scandalous journey has never been revealed - until now. Six years after her perilous exploits in Eriga, Isabella embarks on her most ambitious expedition yet: a two-year trip around the world to study all manner of dragons in every place they might be found. From feathered serpents sunning themselves in the ruins of a fallen civilization to the mighty sea serpents of the tropics, these creatures are a source of both endless fascination and frequent peril. Accompanying her is not only her young son, Jake, but a chivalrous foreign archaeologist whose interests converge with Isabella’s in ways both professional and personal.

Science is, of course, the primary objective of the voyage, but Isabella’s life is rarely so simple. She must cope with storms, shipwrecks, intrigue, and warfare, even as she makes a discovery that offers a revolutionary new insight into the ancient history of dragons.

This should be fairly self-explanatory! I love Marie Brennan's writing and the Lady Trent Memoirs are some of my most favorite books. I'm beyond excited that there is a third 'memoir' coming and can't wait to get my hands on a copy although I could have passed away quietly when pre-ordering as it's one of the most expensive books I've bought for a while.
