    A dazzling blend of military history, high-flying fantasy, and edge-of-your-seat adventure, Naomi Novik’s Temeraire novels, set in an alternate Napoleonic era in which intelligent dragons have been harnessed as weapons of war, are more than just perennial bestsellers—they are a worldwide phenomenon. Now, in Tongues of Serpents, Naomi Novik is back, along with the dragon Temeraire and his rider and friend, Capt. Will Laurence.

    Overall

    but... nothing much happens in this book. I got a feeling that the author is building up to something important in the next installment. My least favorite of the series so far.

    Simon Vance, you're super awesome. Naomi Novik, I'll read anything you write.

    When Britain intercepted a French ship and its precious cargo, an unhatched dragon's egg, Captain Will Laurence of HMS Reliant unexpectedly became master and commander of the noble dragon he named Temeraire. As new recruits in Britain's Aerial Corps, man and dragon soon proved their mettle. But now China has discovered that its rare gift, intended for Napoleon, has fallen into British hands, and an angry Chinese delegation vows to reclaim the remarkable beast.

    I wish there were more books like this. Will Lawrence is a terrific hero.

    Story
    (1002)

    When HMS Reliant captures a French frigate and seizes its precious cargo - an unhatched dragon egg - fate sweeps Captain Will Laurence from his seafaring life into an uncertain future and an unexpected kinship with a most extraordinary creature. Thrust into the rarified world of the Aerial Corps as master of the dragon Temeraire, he will face a crash course in the daring tactics of airborne battle.

    Janet says: "Dragon Riders of Pern meet Master and Commander"
    "Starts a little slow, but hang on"
    Overall

    This series starts a little slow, with a lot of training and social interaction. But the premise rocks, and Will Lawrence, with all his stiff pride in the face of all the haphazard folks around him, is a hero to savor. I'm completely addicted.
