Naomi Novikâ€™s triumphant debut, His Majestyâ€™s Dragon,
introduced a dynamic new pair of heroes to the annals of
fantasy fiction: the noble fighting dragon Temeraire and his
master and commander, Capt. Will Laurence, who serves
Britainâ€™s peerless Aerial Corps in the thick of the raging
Napoleonic Wars. Now, in the latest novel of this dazzling
series, they soar to new heights of breathtaking action and
It is a grim time for the dragon Temeraire. On the heels of
his mission to Africa, seeking the cure for a deadly
contagion, he has been removed from military serviceâ€“and his
captain, Will Laurence, has been condemned to death for treason.
For Britain, conditions are grimmer still: Napoleonâ€™s
resurgent forces have breached the Channel and successfully
invaded English soil. Napoleonâ€™s prime objective: the
occupation of London.
Separated by their own government and threatened at every
turn by Napoleonâ€™s forces, Laurence and Temeraire must
struggle to find each other amid the turmoil of war and to
aid the resistance against the invasion before Napoleonâ€™s
foothold on Englandâ€™s shores can become a stranglehold.
If only they can be reunited, master and dragon might rally
Britainâ€™s scattered forces and take the fight to the enemy
as never beforeâ€“for king and country, and for their own
liberty. But can the French aggressors be well and truly
routed, or will a treacherous alliance deliver Britain into
the hands of her would-be conquerors?
