Description
Naomi Novik's triumphant debut, His Majesty's Dragon, introduced a dynamic pair of heroes to the annals of fantasy fiction: the noble fighting dragon Temeraire and his master and commander, Capt. Will Laurence, who serves Britain's peerless Aerial Corps in the thick of the raging Napoleonic Wars. Now 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? BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Naomi Novik's Tongues of Serpents.

        Starred review from May 19, 2008
        In the thrilling fifth installment (the first in hardcover, following 2007's Empire of Ivory
        ) of the bestselling Temeraire series, Novik returns to familiar themes of love, duty and liberty against the backdrop of the Napoleonic wars. When Napoleon's forces attack England, Temeraire, believing Laurence dead, decides to lead other uncaptained dragons to battle. When the two reunite, Temeraire uses his commander status to gain a voice in war counsels, demanding freedom and pay for dragons. Though the battles are impressive and the politics unsubtle but intriguing, the pièce de résistance is the quiet moment when Laurence faces the mad king he betrayed. This accessible vision of an English Regency with an air force raises the stakes without straining credibility. Followers of Temeraire's travels will be richly rewarded by the satisfying conclusion of his return to home ground, but may wonder where Novik can go from here.

        June 15, 2008
        Napoléon has landed! England is under siege, and it's up to the dragon Temeraire and his captain, Laurence, to stop the invading army. Unfortunately, Laurence has been convicted of treason, and Temeraire banished to the far-off Welsh breeding grounds, after their daring mission to deliver a cure for the dragon plague to the French. In this fifth volume of the Temeraire series (after "His Majesty's Dragon, Throne of Jade, Black Powder War", and "Empire of Ivory") and the first to be published in hardcover, we return to England after the exotic locales of the last two books, and the action takes place more on land than at sea. Fans of military historicals like Bernard Cornwell's Sharpe novels will likely enjoy the detailed points of military strategy and supply-line wrangling (it takes a lot of cows to feed an army of dragons), but fantasy readers will still find their sense of wonder. Novik's latest doesn't have quite the sparkle of "Empire of Ivory", but series fans will certainly be eager to find out what happens after the previous book's vertiginous cliff-hanger of an ending. Recommended for all public libraries.Jenne Bergstrom, San Diego Cty. Lib.

        July 1, 2008
        Condemned at the end of Empire of Ivory (2007) for treason for sharing the dragon-plague cure with the French, Captain Laurence is overwhelmed with guilt because the dragons he saved are about to invade England. His dragon, Temeraire, has been exiled to the breeding grounds. Napoleon flies his army across the channel with dragons led by Temeraires old enemy, Lien, but in the nick of time, Temeraire organizes his fellow inmates into a militia. Novik weaves the threads of several battles into the bleak background of the invasion as Temeraire fights to save Laurence and, for Laurences sake, England. He also fights for the rights of dragons (his arguments with General Wellesley make especially wonderful reading). Laurence battles his despair and guilt, and every officer of any intelligence must fight the British command structure. The fifth Temeraire yarn measures up to its predecessors in excellent plotting, engrossing characters, and sheer page-turning excitement. Faithful fans, old and new, will gobble it up, and a sixth Temeraire story is in the works.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2008, American Library Association.)
