Publisher's Summary

Within the Sanctuary of Wings is the conclusion to Marie Brennan's thrilling Lady Trent Memoirs.

After nearly five decades (and, indeed, the same number of volumes), one might think they were well acquainted with Lady Isabella Trent - dragon naturalist, scandalous explorer, and perhaps as infamous for her company and feats of daring as she is famous for her discoveries and additions to the scientific field.

And yet - after her initial adventure in the mountains of Vystrana and her exploits in the depths of war-torn Eriga, to the high seas aboard the Basilisk and then to the inhospitable deserts of Akhia - Lady Trent has captivated hearts along with fierce minds. This concluding volume will finally reveal the truths behind her most notorious adventure - scaling the tallest peak in the world, buried behind the territory of Scirland's enemies - and what she discovered there, Within the Sanctuary of Wings.

THE BEST ENDING TO A SERIES EVER

I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS BOOK!
Marie Brennan did not disappoint with this final book in the series. I didn't get even close to predicting her final discovery. Once I read the plot twist I had to stop reading and just absorb it. It was probably the happiest I have been all year reading this book! I am sad to see this story come to a close, but Brennan couldn't have written a better ending! This is definitely my best book of the year.

A great ending for a great series

A really great read that I enjoyed listening to from start to finish. Who would have thought that one of the best series I've ever read about the joys and hazards field work as a scientist would be so fantastical.

Ms. Reading does a fantastic job as the narrator bring the characters to live. She IS Lady Trent to my mind.

Highly recommend the series for any young people interested in biology or the social sciences. You be hard press to find a better real world role model.

An excellent conclusion

A satisfyingly bombastic conclusion to a truly engaging series. Brilliant narration, as with all the other books.

An absolutely fantastic end to a wonderful journey

This entire series has been such a pleasure to listen to, none more so than this book in particular! The story, the characters and the world building were fantastic as always! And Kate Reading did such a phenomenal job with voicing all of the characters and making them distinct from each other that I hardly ever was confused as to who was talking (on the occasions where there isn't a "__ said" at the beginning or end of the sentence), which can sometimes happen with audiobooks. Both her voicing and the writing made everything so colorful and vivid! On one hand I'm sad the series is over, but on the other hand I think this book wrapped the series up so well that I don't feel like there needs to be more

A unique narration of a beautiful story

The finale of the series lives up to all of the hype of the first four books. Astonishing twists and turns keep you interested and keep your emotions in suspense for what will happen next.
As always, Kate Reading succeeds in her portrayal of Isabella and all characters within.

Sad for the story to end!

This book series has been one of my absolute favorites, this book included. The narrator was exceptional and I loved every minute of it. The characters are well developed, voiced and very loveable. I wish the series didn't have to end!
