When Britain intercepted a French ship and its precious
cargoâ€“an unhatched dragonâ€™s eggâ€“Capt. Will Laurence of HMS
Reliant unexpectedly became master and commander of the
noble dragon he named Temeraire. As new recruits in
Britainâ€™s Aerial Corps, man and dragon soon proved their
mettle in daring combat against Bonaparteâ€™s invading forces.
Now China has discovered that its rare gift,
intended for Napoleon, has fallen into British handsâ€“and an
angry Chinese delegation vows to reclaim the remarkable
beast. But Laurence refuses to cooperate. Facing the gallows
for his defiance, Laurence has no choice but to accompany
Temeraire back to the Far Eastâ€“a long voyage fraught with
peril, intrigue, and the untold terrors of the deep. Yet
once the pair reaches the court of the Chinese emperor, even
more shocking discoveries and darker dangers await.
