I loved this book, especially the timeline: set before the Battle of Waterloo, just with dragons, which I adore ^_^! The characters are well developed and I defy anyone not to love Temeraire's intelligence and curiosity, as well as Laurence's big heart and sense of justice. Laurence undergoes a big change from naval Captain to aviator Captain, and it is very interesting to follow him as he fights to find his feet in a world that he and society are prejudiced against.

I'm going to order the next three volumes tonight!
