Novik puts Laurence and Temeraire on a slow boat to China. The are sent in an effort to appease the Chinese government since Temeraire was not intended to fall into British hands.

Other than an attack by a sea serpent, very little happens until they get to China.

There is something about Novik's writing that I find amazing in spite of the very slow moving story. I think she captures the language and style of early nineteenth century very well.

A faster paced story would garner five stars from me, not that it is important to anyone else but me.
