2.0 out of 5 stars The Tongues of Serpents by Naomi Novik, 28 Nov 2010
By 
This review is from: Tongues of Serpents (The Temeraire Series, Book 6) (Temeraire 6) (Hardcover)
The other 5 books were very good and exciting reads. I cannot believe that Novik wrote this utter tosh. It must be a doppleganger that wrote this surely.

First off it was way to low on page count. There was a lot of missed opportunities in the novel to make it a good read. Gone was the rip roaring action and good realised characters. The Bunyip thread could have been much better and a bit more about that story thread would have been nice. I mean these are the only other "fantasy" race in the book and a great opportunity to realise them just more than the bogey men they were portraed.

Also the inclusion of the Aborigines and their mythology was missed.

I am glad I borrowed this to read, I would not have paid to read this book.

I would say must try better Miss Novik to keep the fans hooked.
