Description

Naomi Novik's stunning series of novels follow the global adventures of Captain William Laurence and his fighting dragon Temeraire as they are thrown together to fight for Britain during the turbulent time of the Napoleonic Wars.

Before Captain Will Laurence can prepare his crew for the slow voyage home from China, new orders arrive for him and his dragon, Temeraire: they must fly home immediately, stopping only in Istanbul to collect three priceless dragon eggs, purchased by the British government from the Ottoman Empire. But the cross-continental journey is fraught with danger; not only will they have to scale mountains and traverse vast hostile deserts, but a Machiavellian herald precedes them, spreading political menace in her wake. Holding Temeraire responsible for the death of her princely companion, Lien has absconded from China consumed by vengeance. If she can, she will destroy everything and everyone Temeraire loves.

Reviews for the Temeraire series

“Enthralling reading-it’s like Jane Austen playing Dungeons & Dragons with Eragon’s Christopher Paolini.”-Time

'Novik won me over with her first novel, the combination of military history, sympathetic characters, and engaging style makes this series great, intelligent fun' The Times

“So realistic that it drowns disbelief . . . first-class in every respect.”-Booklist (starred review)

“A gripping adventure full of rich detail and the impossible wonder of gilded fantasy.”- Entertainment Weekly

'Plenty of intrigue, swordplay, exotic locations, plausible invention. In short a treat' Telegraph

“A thrilling fantasy . . . All hail Naomi Novik.”-The Washington Post Book World
