His Majesty's Dragon (Temeraire, #1)
Heather Brinkerhoff Burdsal's review
Sep 13, 2013
I read this on a whim, not realizing that it is a 9-book series. But I really liked it (I usually like anything about dragons). It is a little heavy on some boring war discussions (I'm not all about Napoleonic War history), and some aspects of the battles are too convenient for the progress of the story, but overall it was a great read. The characters were well-rounded; I loved the relationships between the captains and their dragons. I am also a sucker for a thorough approach to historic realism in dialogue, and the language of the book totally rocked in the consist antiquation department. I'm excited to begin book 2.
