History takes flight in the second book of Naomi Noviks deliciously addictive series which captures the Napoleonic period perfectly and skillfully layers the timeline with imagination by adding a Dragon Air Force to the battle for England. Captain William Laurence of the British Air Corps and his dragon- Temeraire- begin their slow voyage to China- fearful that upon landing they will be forced to part by Imperial decree. Temeraire is a Celestial dragon- the most highly-prized of all draconic breeds; famed for their intelligence- agility and most of all for the Divine Wind - their terrible roar capable of shattering the heavy timbers of war ships- shattering woodland and destroying other dragons mid-flight. Temeraires egg was captured and claimed by the British at sea- but he was meant to be the companion of the Emperor Napoleon and not captained by a mere officer in the British Air Corps. The Chinese have demanded his return and the British cannot refuse them - they cannot afford to provoke the asian super-power into allying themselves with the French - even if it costs them the most powerful weapon in their arsenal and inflicts the most unimaginable pain upon Laurence and his dragon....
