Publisher Description

From the New York Times bestselling author of A Deadly Education comes the fifth volume of the Temeraire series, as Will Laurence and Temeraire struggle to reunite and face the Napoleonic army on London's doorstep.

“A story about friendship that transcends not only time and class, but species.”—NPR

For Britain, conditions are grim: Napoleon’s resurgent forces have breached the Channel and successfully invaded English soil. Napoleon’s prime objective is the occupation of London. Unfortunately, the dragon Temeraire has been removed from military service—and his captain, Will Laurence, has been condemned to death for treason.

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. If only they can be reunited, master and dragon might rally Britain’s scattered resistance forces and take the fight to the enemy as never before, for king and country—and for their own liberty.

This is a must buy series

The entire Temeraire series has been WOEFULLY neglected, and it is an absolute travesty. It is Master and Commander, with DRAGONS, and it is GLORIOUS. Each book in this series gets more intense and heartwrenching as human nature and conflict escalate. You will scream at the callous idiocy of humanity, you will laugh at the wild antics of feral dragons, and you’re going to be hooked the whole way through.

If there’s one thing Naomi Novak gets ABSOLUTELY SPOT ON, it is the attitude of Napoleon and his tactics and way of thinking. Even altering the history ever since the beginning she has beat for beat NAILED Napoleon not even as the primary antagonist; the man just walks into a scene and steals the show, and then waves his theft in your faces, then turns around to march off to another battle.
