Review

I have to say that Naomi Novik can do no wrong by me - her Temeraire series is fabulous. Each book takes in a different country with all it's politics, culture and colour as well, all overlaid the Napleonic Wars and the British seafaring traditions with added extras.

Here we are not only given the above but a seriously strong typhon, a sea serpent that was hell bent on trying to kill them for food as well as Chinese British relationships that were less to be desired!

Review

Naomi Novik just keeps on getting better with each book she writes in the historical fantasy with dragons. I guess you could say that in modern warfare as opposed to the Napoleonic Wars, helicopters and fighter planes would be doing the work of the dragons, with Temeraire being the lead dragon character.

This time Naomi Novik has taken us to Europe, especially Turkey where they take the dragon eggs and fly home via Prussia - but it is a hard journey with several crew losses.

Review

I took Temeraire to hospital when I had to go in for some surgery - afterwards this book took me on a journey like no other fantasy book I have read. It is full of well researched historical information being set during the Napoleonic Wars, but you are not overwhelmed in anyway whatsoever. ..read more
