The thrilling adventure of Lady Trent continues in Marie Brennan's Tropic of Serpents . . . Attentive readers of Lady Trent’s earlier memoir, A Natural History of Dragons, are already familiar with how a bookish and determined young woman named Isabella first set out on the historic course that would one day lead her to becoming the world’s premier dragon naturalist. Now, in this remarkably candid second volume, Lady Trent looks back at the next stage of her illustrious (and occasionally scandalous) career.Three years after her fateful journeys through the forbidding mountains of Vystrana, Mrs. Camherst defies family and convention to embark on an expedition to the war-torn continent of Eriga, home of such exotic draconian species as the grass-dwelling snakes of the savannah, arboreal tree snakes, and, most elusive of all, the legendary swamp-wyrms of the tropics.The expedition is not an easy one. Accompanied by both an old associate and a runaway heiress, Isabella must brave oppressive heat, merciless fevers, palace intrigues, gossip, and other hazards in order to satisfy her boundless fascination with all things draconian, even if it means venturing deep into the forbidden jungle known as the Green Hell . . . where her courage, resourcefulness, and scientific curiosity will be tested as never before.

3.5 Review: Tropic of Serpents
I was more enamored with the first one, I think. This was still quite good, but possibly too much "more of the same" and not enough really great individual scenes. Probably will still pick up the third book at some point.

4.0 The Tropic of Serpents
I'm really enjoying this now! I love how the characters are growing and I'm so glad there's no gratuitous romance just for the sake of it. I love that Isabella is independent and not your usual heroine. I'm really liking forward to reading more!The chief complaint that I had from the first book as w...

3.0 The Tropic of Serpents
Lady Trent discovers more about dragons in a space not unlike a mix of Africa and the Amazon. She also learns a lot more about her limits and about not bowing to others to get ahead.
