Publisher Description

Marie Brennan's Turning Darkness Into Light is a delightful fantasy of manners, the heir to the award-winning Natural History of Dragons series, a perfect stepping stone into an alternate Victorianesque fantasy landscape.

"Overwhelmingly fun."—io9 on The Tropic of Serpents

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, Audrey must find proof of the conspiracy before it’s too late.

At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

“Just wrapped up "Turning Darkness into Light" by Marie Brennan, and I'm feeling a solid 4/5 stars. This one's a bit different - it's structured like a mix of diary entries, newspaper bits, and archaeological records. It's an immersive experience, but I get that it might not be everyone's cup of tea. The whole Lady Trent series, though, including this one, is just stellar. The way Brennan crafts this world and unfolds the story through Isabella's eyes is genius. And the archaeological angle in this book adds this cool layer of discovery. But let's be real, I'm going to mourn the fact that I can't experience the series for the first time again. It's like saying goodbye to old friends. If you're into unconventional structures and want to dive into a series that'll stick with you, give this one a shot. Lady Trent's adventures are worth the ride.”
