In exchange for an honest review

I would not say it felt like the previous series. That one was about exploring, and it had this other feel to it. This one is even more scholarly as most of it takes place when Audrey is translating clay tablets.

Audrey is Lady Trent's granddaughter (read the books to find out who Trent is.) She wants to prove her worth as her grand parents are famous, her parents are famous and she has not had her turn yet. So she spends month translating.

Helping her she has Kudshayn, a well I will just say dragonman so you get the point. Their benefactor is an Earl who she does not really know what his endgame is.

There is more but that just comes into spoiler territory.

I liked Audrey. I did want more dragons, and got none, so that is sad. In a way not a lot happens either, it really is hard to explain this one. But it is a fascinating world she has created.

She did a good job. I liked her epic clay tablet voice. You have to read it to get that ;)  
The book is a lot more than just a story. There are letters, articles and more. In comes this other narrator for that.
It worked in audio too with all these different formats 

As the renowned granddaughter of Isabella Camherst (Lady Trent, of the riveting and daring Draconic adventure memoirs), Audrey Camherst has always known she, too, would want to make her scholarly mark upon a chosen field of study. 

When Lord Gleinheigh recruits Audrey to decipher a series of ancient tablets holding the secrets of the ancient Draconean civilization, she has no idea that her research will plunge her into an intricate conspiracy, one meant to incite rebellion and invoke war. Alongside dearest childhood friend and fellow archeologist Kudshayn, must find proof of the conspiracy before it’s too late.


  1. Did you get dragons in the first book? Because, that's just wrong if you didn't get any. False advertising! Lol.

    1. Yes the first series were all about dragons

  2. I heard a lot about these books but I haven't read them

  3. No dragons??? The cover kind of promises dragons lol

  4. That cover is cool. Is this a spinoff series - do you need to read the first series?

  5. Wishing dragons for you in your future reading!

  6. Yeah, I enjoyed this one, but it definitely felt different from Lady Trent. Which is good, I guess, because I'm glad Audrey got her own unique voice, but I missed the dragons too.

    1. It was very different, and yes it as good, but I do prefer Lady Trent

  7. dragons?! There are dragons on the cover though. This one is completely new to me.
