From School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up—This installment continues the adventures of Isabella—Lady Trent—the world's foremost dragon naturalist and the woman responsible for taking the study of dragons out of myth and into proper science. Presented as published volumes of her private memoirs, this series follows Lady Trent's life as she bucks society's expectations for young women and compromises her future prospects at a proper marriage and her own safety as she travels the world to study dragons. This book chronicles her adventures in the dangerous deserts of Akhia, where she has been sent by the Royal Scirling Army to investigate a case of dragon breeding. YA librarians may have missed out on Brennan's series, since it is published as adult fiction. However, there is great crossover potential. Give to teens who love dragons or archaeology and those who are seeking a story starring an independent, smart female Indiana Jones-like heroine.

"These chronicles have the power of fabulous and historic voyages, along with a wry wit that refuses to accept the standard notions of any era―past, present, or future."―Locus on The Memoirs of Lady Trent series
“Isabella, Lady Trent, narrates her astounding adventures from volume to volume, blending Victorian pastiche and alternate-world fantasy with a distinctly pulp sensibility…now is the time to get acquainted.”―NPR on The Voyage of the Basilisk
"Discoveries about the connections between dragons and humans mix with bone-punk technology, and revelations crash like waves in a satisfying conclusion." ―Publisher's Weekly on Voyage of the Basilisk
"Smart and nuanced...Overwhelmingly fun and a perfectly delightful [summer] read."―io9 on The Tropic of Serpents

I might call this YA, but even some of us adults feel young at times. If you (or yours) want a strong female lead with nerd pride of the headiest kind, set against an Edwardian, dragon-filled backdrop, you've come to the right place.
However it is not as bad as it may sounds. For the old readers familiar with plot and characters it is good read, but new readers should pick up one of the previous volumes to start the series.
