Like the last couple of books, it feels like two totally different stories were put into one book and it's a bit disjointed. I really love the overall story and the characters, though, and there were some original elements here with the African setting. I just have a sort of irrational wish that she would have slowed down and put all her Temeraire stories into one or two books, condensing and streamlining them a little, instead of spacing them out (but apparently rushing through the writing) and letting them wander.
