Cover Reveal for Marie Brennan’s In The Labyrinth of Drakes

Even those who take no interest in the field of dragon naturalism (and who are you?!?) have heard of Lady Trent’s expedition to the inhospitable deserts of Akhia. Her discoveries there are the stuff of romantic legend, catapulting her from scholarly obscurity to worldwide fame. The details of her personal life during that time are hardly less private, having provided fodder for gossips in several countries.

As is so often the case in the career of this illustrious woman, the public story is far from complete. In The Labyrinth of Drakes, the fourth volume of her memoirs, Lady Trent relates how she acquired her position with the Royal Scirling Army; how foreign saboteurs imperiled both her work and her well-being; and how her determined pursuit of knowledge took her into the deepest reaches of the Labyrinth of Drakes, where the chance action of a dragon set the stage for her greatest achievement yet.

We are happy to reveal the full cover for Marie Brennan’s Labyrinth of Drakes, illustrated once again by dragon-master Todd Lockwood, who this time reduces us to a puddle by featuring the cutest widdle dragon hatchlingggggg.
