2015 book 67

Marie Brennan's Voyage of the Basilisk
The third book in Brennan's Lady Trent series was more enjoyable than the second, which I found a little dull--this one has a sea voyage and more encounters with new cultures to recommend it, plus some hilarious side business with wives, more scientific discovery, a possible future love interest, some good stuff with Lady Trent's son, etc etc. I do find the thinly fictionalized geography to be a little bit silly/unnecessary, and wish the awesome plot/action stuff would happen before, like, the last quarter of the book, but on the whole, find this series to be a lot of fun. B/B+.

A review copy was provided by the publisher. This book will be released in March 31st.
