I liked this installment much better than the previous volume because there was plenty of swashbuckling and some interesting takes on Napoleonic era battles with the addition of sentient dragons. Laurence moped about his honor somewhat as he had in the previous installment but it didn't bring the tone of the book down nearly as much as it did in the previous installment ( )

a good one.. i admit i skimmed some of the war strategy stuff. the dragons forming their own militia i liked a lot. Laurence's depression not so much. the devastation of the war on England was detailed enough for me to feel awful and once again thank God war has never been played out in my time in my country. ( )

For Dr. Sonia Novik, who gave this book a home
First words
The breeding grounds were called Pen Y Fan, after the hard, jagged slash of the mountain at their heart, like an ax-blade, rimed with ice along its edge and rising barren over the moorlands: a cold, wet Welsh autumn already, coming on towards winter, and the other dragons sleepy and remote, uninterested in anything but their meals.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0345512251, Mass Market Paperback)

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.

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.
