TemeraireThis is a great read, what a joy after Kylie Chan! Great plotting, each chapter leaves you wanting more – this is the kind of book you’ll end up reading until 4am.

The Dragons are fantastic creatures – intelligent and possessive of their riders. The bond developed between the rider and dragon reminds me of Robin Hobb’s Fitz and Wolf relationship. Except they are HUGE – can you imagine running a dragon like a ship? After reading this it’ll seem to make perfect sense. The geneology of the dragons has been well planned with a myria of species

The historical setting is primed for conflict with Napolean Bonaparte, a great nemesis, his plans for world domination (mwah hahah), and of course stragically cunning with his use of offensive dragons. And

And hurrah, although the lead character is male, there are plenty of women in the book who are jumping into the fray on the backs of their dragons.

You can read an excerpt at Naomi Novik’s website.

NB: Naomi was a computer programmer who found she liked writing more than programming while on Neverwrinter Nights.
