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.

The author does a great job immersing the reader into the time period of our faithful loving heroes. Dragons like I have never read about them before. original and imaginative. I will be reading more of these for sure.

The performer is outstanding as well. In an audiobook it's not just the author who has to sell the title it's the performer as well. Simon Vance was just as big a part in the immersion I felt in listening to this tale as Naomi was writng it.
