by Naomi Novik
Aerial combat brings a thrilling new dimension to the Napoleonic Wars as valiant warriors ride mighty fighting dragons, bred for size or speed. When HMS Reliant captures a French frigate and seizes the precious cargo, an unhatched dragon egg, fate sweeps Captain Will Laurence from his seafaring life into an uncertain future – and an unexpected kinship with a most extraordinary creature. Thrust into the rarified world of the Aerial Corps as master of the dragon Temeraire, he will face a crash course in the daring tactics of airborne battle. For as France’s own dragon-borne forces rally to breach British soil in Bonaparte’s boldest gambit, Laurence and Temeraire must soar into their own baptism of fire.
Another novel by Naomi Novik and again with a completely different premise. In this case it’s the Napoleonic wars with dragons. This one also has a male main character which is different, for me anyway. Well plus the dragon is a main character. It looks like an interesting series and one that I can see continuing although not right now. The main character is a bit annoying? But seems in character for a man of his times. And he does seem to be growing.
