His Majesty’s Dragon (Temeraire, #1) by Naomi Novik

Here’s some cool revisionist history for you:

Napoleon is attacking England and terrorizing Europe…

…while riding dragons.

There’s lots to love. The dragons, obviously are the stars of this show. Sizes, breeds, colors, skills–there’s a ton for a dragon-nerd to freak out over. We non-dragon-nerds can enjoy the aerial fighting and the relationship based story line. No sex, no language.

A couple things not to love. The writing is formal, and the main (human) character is boring. It made the story a bit on the slow side, so if you are one who needs a little less talk and a lot more action, you might find yourself a bit bored with this one.

Between the fighting and the relationship developement, I was entertained. I think I’ll go on to the next book, but I’m not sure yet if I’m up to reading all 9 books in this series.

Judgement day for book three will be suspended until I’ve finished book 2.

Happy Reading!
