    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"
    "Only Ms. Novik"

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I recommend this book to anyone who likes Dragons, or has studied the Napolenic wars. They are exciting, interesting, and surprisingly accurate in the wars's history. A geographical knowledge of England would help make good sense of this book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Laurence will never get over his "luck" in impressing a baby dragon, but he carries on anyway.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Temeraire's commission and pay arguments


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Too long for that, but I finished it as quickly as I could


    Any additional comments?

    It is hard to wait for book #9 and see how this saga ends.
