5.0 out of 5 stars Dragons and sailing ships, 14 May 2006
This review is from: His Majesty's Dragon (Temeraire) (Mass Market Paperback)
This book has also been published under the name Temeraire.

it covers the period of the war with Napoleon, but with the addition of dragons that can fly.

Both sides domesticate and breed dragons to use as weapons. This book covers what happens once an egg is captured.

I bought the e-book version to read as it sounded like a different take on classic scifi / fantasy. It isnt - this is more of a historical novel with a big "what if" thrown in.

But this is a really good book - so who cares how it should be classified. More please.

Anyway, i immediately got the sequel as soon as i had finished this book (Throne of Jade).

Summary - original plot take using some classical themes, really good writing, lots of atmosphere. Recommended.
