Summary
Fascinated by dragons since childhood, Lady Isabella Trent devotes her time and considerable energy to the study of natural history, thus defying convention in the alternate Victorian England society in which she lives (where science not an appropriate study for ladies). Her intellect attracts the notice of famed explorer Lord Hilford, who invites her to join his expedition in search of rock-wyrms, finally giving Lady Isabella the chance to prove herself. Illustrations enhance this artful combination of fantasy and alternate history, with elements of mystery. - Description by Gillian Speace
