Again, Naomi Novik does an amazing job. I'm definitely hooked on this series now. The characters are all very likable, the story believable despite being fantasy, and the descriptions of the times they were in China were lovely and made you feel as if you were really there. The "dogfights" between the dragons were well written to a point where I could picture every move (this coming from someone who has written aerial combat scenes before, but with Nuiports and Fokkers, not with dragons!) And not to mention the fact that I laughed imagining the poor dragons suffering from the common cold ;) I am definitely looking forward to the rest of this series.
