How much do I love this book? Does the fact that it only took half a day to get thru a hint. I haven't read any fantasy novel in a long time. Temeraire strikes a very good balance between the historical part (British - French wars Napoleon and Nelson) and the fantasy part : the dragons, the flying, the Corps. The family being born with Temeraire and his Navy Captain is wonderful to watch. The main character is an outsider being thrown in a world he doesn't know makes it easy for the reader to care, whoop, cry and cheer at the many twists and turns the story takes. Can't wait for book 2 and 3 to come out this spring.
