Description
Temeraire * Book 3After their fateful adventure in China, Capt. Will Laurence of His Majesty's Aerial Corps and his extraordinary dragon, Temeraire, are waylaid by a mysterious envoy bearing urgent new orders from Britain. Three valuable dragon eggs have been purchased from the Ottoman Empire, and Laurence and Temeraire must detour to Istanbul to escort the precious cargo back to England. Time is of the essence if the eggs are to be borne home before hatching.Yet disaster threatens the mission at every turn–thanks to the diabolical machinations of the Chinese dragon Lien, who blames Temeraire for her master's death and vows to ally herself with Napoleon and take vengeance. Then, faced with shattering betrayal in an unexpected place, Laurence, Temeraire, and their squad must launch a daring offensive. But what chance do they have against the massed forces of Bonaparte's implacable army?From the Compact Disc edition.

      • content: BLACK POWDER WAR, the third volume in Naomi Novik's Temeraire series, is a fantasy in a historical setting. Napoleon Bonaparte is on the move in Europe, and so are his dragons. Simon Vance adds just the right touch to the Englishman, Lawrence, and his companion dragon, Temeraire. He's also called upon to perform several other characters and accents as Lawrence travels in search of more dragons to aid his side of the fight. An interesting touch occurs at the end of the audiobook. A scientific discourse (dated 1806) discusses the question of whether or not dragons can perform mathematics. S.D.D.
