Digital audiobook narrated by Simon Vance

Book number three in the marvelous series featuring Captain Will Laurence and his dragon, Temeraire. Following their exploits in China (book two), they’ve received special orders to escort three precious dragon eggs purchased from the Ottoman Empire from Istanbul back to England. It is important that the eggs arrive in England before they hatch. But they are waylaid several times, due in part to the schemes employed by the Chinese dragon Lien. Capt. Laurence and Temeraire have little choice but to launch an offensive against Bonaparte’s forces.

I love this series and this episode has more of the aerial “dog fights” that first entranced me in book one. I love that Novik used the Napoleonic War as the background to this story, while building on the legends of dragons and their varied traits. Temeraire is a marvel; intelligent, fluent in multiple languages, an astute observer and a skilled warrior. He is also devoted to Will and their relationship is an important part of the series.

I listened to the audio, masterfully performed by Simon Vance. I love the voice he gives Temeraire. And especially enjoyed the way he interpreted the latest dragon to join their adventures, the hatchling Iskierka.

This book was a surprise and a gift and the fairytale our daughters deserve and I'm just so sad to have finished reading it.

I put off reading this for a year because I was afraid I wouldn't like it as well as Uprooted, and then I liked it more!

El is now a senior and we are spectators as she and her classmates battle to try to graduate. I found the inner monologues a *bit* tedious at times, but the action is steady as the story heads toward a satisfying (?) cathartic conclusion.

But wait... Does it have a cathartic conclusion?! Ack - talk about cliffhangers! Is Novik going to write book 3 or is this it? Will El and Orion's story continue?
