really liked it

I really liked the aspect of dragons as citizens brought out in this story line. Temeraire asks some thoughtful questions when he picks up on Laurence's distaste for slavery and it makes him question his own status. Then seeing how dragons lived in China really opened both of their eyes. Like so many aspects of life, just because we as a society have always done things a certain way, it doesn't automatically make it the best way or the only way.
