Novik once again produced an enjoyable adventure, on par with the rest of the series.

The exploration of the African continent and culture is exciting and fresh. As an action, adventure story these books are very good, but not for someone looking for complex plot, politics, or magic.

With the glimpse of French culture and the influences Lien is having there at the end of this book, it is obvious that there is still a great deal to be explored and great opportunities for the character development of Temeraire and Laurence.

It is similar to the previous novels in that it reaches the anticipated climax early and contains a secondary resolution story at the end.

This series is recommended for moderate readers interested in fantasy with a historic flair. No complex prose or questionable content, so the novels are suitable for younger readers too. The writing is good, the story is good, and after the fourth book I am still dying to read more!
