Publisher's Summary

Naomi Novik's triumphant debut, His Majesty's Dragon, introduced a dynamic new pair of heroes to the annals of fantasy fiction: the noble fighting dragon Temeraire and his master and commander, Capt. Will Laurence. Now in the latest novel, they soar to new heights of breathtaking action and brilliant imagination.

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. Napoleon's prime objective: the occupation of London.

Separated by their own government and threatened at every turn by Napoleon's forces, Laurence and Temeraire must struggle to find each other amid the turmoil of war and to aid the resistance against the invasion before Napoleon's foothold on England's shores can become a stranglehold.

If only they can be reunited, master and dragon might rally Britain's scattered forces and take the fight to the enemy as never before - for king and country, and for their own liberty. But can the French aggressors be well and truly routed, or will a treacherous alliance deliver Britain into the hands of her would-be conquerors?

Dragon tales: don't miss the rest of the Temeraire series.

    "I was hoping the French would win"

    I loved the first few books, but the British government and people in this book are so backward and hidebound that I had no sympathy for them. The French treated the dragons better and although Captain Lawrence is a honor dulled person he really needs to get a life. I am considering whether I will keep reading this series or not.

    Would you listen to Victory of Eagles again? Why?

    i already am


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Victory of Eagles?

    TEMERAIRE LEADING THE BAND OF DRAGONS


    What about Simon Vance???s performance did you like?

    HE BRINGS THE BOOK ALIVE


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    there were several. when temeraire threaten the general---when Lawarence found out from the admiral that he would not needed to be a traitor an the dragons would have been saved . his brother would not let him in house. an there was about 10 more.... an for those who have not read book remember about the "wedding ring".


    Any additional comments?

    "Nice Temeraire development!"

    I enjoyed every one of the books in the series, but I must admit that temeraire's development (sans Lawrence in his life) made me giddy with excitement at moments. This had a slightly different feel and perspective than the other books and I really loved some of the dragons introduced in this book. Not a thing negative from my end to report about the reader. He continues to impress.

    "Good but short"

    I've enjoyed all of the other books in the series and I enjoyed this one. The story was very unique and imaginative. If you have enjoyed the other books in the series you will not be disappointed. My only complaint was with the narrator. He does a great job, and has done so throughout the series, but it drove me a little crazy when he would try to make new characters have their own voice but it sounded exactly like older established characters. A good listen, could have been longer, I'm loooking forward to the next book.

    "Quite good"

    While this story doesn't hold the same tone of thrilling adventure, dealing instead with a homeland invaded and desperate acts, there is still all the same delight to be taken in Tamaraire and Lawrence. The performance by Vance is nothing less than what I would expect.

    "The best book in the series."

    Let's be honest. This is by far the most action packed piece introduced in the series. There is war and dragon promotions, coupled with surprises that will leave you speechless with anticipatory lust.
