    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.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It's an entertaining story, more so than the previous book. I got hooked on the Temeraire character in the first book so I want to know what happens to him and his captain.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    After more or less marathoning these audiobooks you notice when the voice actor has been off doing other things and forgets how to voice a character after he gets back. Many of the voices were different and I had to get used to that. Worse, a couple of voices changed within this novel, and one officer had Angry Temeraire voice. :/


    Did Victory of Eagles inspire you to do anything?

    Cheer.


    Any additional comments?

    It's still a good story. I will keep listening. If the voices annoy me again, I'll just read the book.
