â€śNaomi Novik has done for the Napoleonic Wars what Anne
McCaffrey did for science fiction: constructed an alternate
reality in which dragons are real in a saga that is
impressively original, fully developed, and peopled with
characters you care about.â€ť
â€“David Weber, author of the
Honor Harrington series
After their fateful adventure
in China, Capt. Will Laurence of His Majestyâ€™s Aerial Corps
and his extraordinary dragon, Temeraire, are waylaid by a
mysterious envoy bearing urgent new orders from Britain.
Three valuable dragon eggs have been purchased from the
Ottoman Empire, and Laurence and Temeraire must detour to
Istanbul to escort the precious cargo back to England. Time
is of the essence if the eggs are to be borne home before
Yet disaster threatens the mission at every
turnâ€“thanks to the diabolical machinations of the Chinese
dragon Lien, who blames Temeraire for her masterâ€™s death and
vows to ally herself with Napoleon and take vengeance. Then,
faced with shattering betrayal in an unexpected place,
Laurence, Temeraire, and their squad must launch a daring
offensive. But what chance do they have against the massed
forces of Bonaparteâ€™s implacable army?
