Description
Temeraire * Book 2When Britain intercepted a French ship and its precious cargo–an unhatched dragon's egg–Capt. 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 in daring combat against Bonaparte's invading forces.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. But Laurence refuses to cooperate. Facing the gallows for his defiance, Laurence has no choice but to accompany Temeraire back to the Far East–a long voyage fraught with peril, intrigue, and the untold terrors of the deep. Yet once the pair reaches the court of the Chinese emperor, even more shocking discoveries and darker dangers await.

        "Temeraire is a dragon for the ages."

      • premium: False
      • source: Alan Dean Foster, author of the Pip & Flinx series
      • content: "Readers with a penchant for both Patrick O'Brian and Anne McCaffrey may have found their perfect match. Naomi Novik beautifully renders an early-eighteenth-century Europe in which both naval buffs and dragon lovers will be keen to immerse themselves."

      • content: In the first book in this series, a combination of historical fiction and fantasy, Captain Will Laurence captures a dragon egg that was a gift to Napoleon. The egg eventually produces Temeraire, a dragon hatchling, who becomes Laurence's friend and partner in war. But when the Chinese learn that the dragon is being used as a weapon, they demand his return. Laurence is torn when he is given the command to trick the dragon into going back to China. Simon Vance demonstrates his skill with narrative passages. He draws out the relationships between the characters, especially the affection between Laurence and the dragon. J.E.M.
