    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 service - and his captain, Will Laurence, has been condemned to death for treason. For Britain, conditions are grimmer still: Napoleon's resurgent forces have breached the Channel and successfully invaded English soil.

    Karin W. says: "Excellent story, but the audio files are truncated"
    "A good book, but difficult in some ways"

    Story
    Would you listen to Victory of Eagles again? Why?

    Yes. If I listen to the series again, I don't skip books.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Temeraire. This book lets us into his head, and Naomi Novik does an incredible job of making his thought process notably not human. He's almost childlike at points, but never unintelligent.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book can be difficult. Lawrence is punished for doing the right thing, and he spends this entire book suffering the consequences. While realistic, it can be unsettling to see this, especially when there's no indication that this burden will ever be removed from him.
