Novik's beloved series returns, with Capt. Will Laurence and his fighting dragon Temeraire once again taking to the air against the broadsides of Napoleon's forces and the friendly--and sometimes not-so-friendly--fire of British soldiers and politicians who continue to suspect them of divided loyalties, if not outright treason.

Praise for Naomi Novik and her novels of Temeraire
"Novik's influences run the gamut from Jane Austen to Patrick O'Brian, with a side trip through Anne McCaffrey. Her books are completely involving and probably addictive, their central conceit explored in clever detail with a great deal of wit and historical insight."--"San Francisco Chronicle"
"These are beautifully written novels: not only fresh, original, and fast-paced, but full of wonderful characters with real heart."--Peter Jackson
"A gripping adventure full of rich detail and the impossible wonder of gilded fantasy."--"Entertainment Weekly"
"A new writer is soaring on the wings of a dragon."--"The New York Times"
"[This is] a glorious series whose future status as a genre classic is now assured."--SF Reviews
