Summary, etc.: The first book in this the Temeraire series was hailed "terrifically entertaining" by Stephen King and here, in the second book, Novik returns with a superbly written story that once again blends historical fiction and high fantasy. When Britain intercepted a French ship and its precious cargo, an unhatched dragon's egg, Capt. Will Laurence of HMS Reliant unexpectedly became master and commander of the noble dragon he named Temeraire. As new recruits in Britain's Aerial Corps, man and dragon soon proved their mettle in daring combat against Bonaparte's invading forces.
