Read in March, 2012

Mmmh. It was still a good read, but not up to the first couple books.
This book takes yet another detour around the Napoleon wars, and sends the characters to another trip, in this case to Africa, where we get to meet a different culture and the way they relate to dragons. This particular book has a much stronger and explicit anti slavery message.
The action is pretty good, but spending so much time in transit does make it for a slower pace. There is some interesting character development for Lawrence and Temeraire at the end, so I'm looking forward to how their characters move forward on the next books.
