i Our Dragon doesn t eat the girls he takes no matter what stories they tell outside our valley We hear them sometimes from travelers passing through They talk as though we were doing human sacrifice and he were a real dragon Of course that s not true he may be a wizard and immortal but he s still a man and our fathers would band together and kill him if he wanted to eat one of us every ten years He protects us against the Wood and we re grateful but not that grateful i br br Agnieszka loves her valley home her quiet village the forests and the bright shining river But the corrupted Wood stands on the border full of malevolent power and its shadow lies over her life br br Her people rely on the cold driven wizard known only as the Dragon to keep its powers at bay But he demands a terrible price for his help one young woman handed over to serve him for ten years a fate almost as terrible as falling to the Wood br br The next choosing is fast approaching and Agnieszka is afraid She knows i everyone i knows that the Dragon will take Kasia beautiful graceful brave Kasia all the things Agnieszka isn t and her dearest friend in the world And there is no way to save her br br But Agnieszka fears the wrong things For when the Dragon comes it is not Kasia he will choose, Naomi Novik s triumphant debut His Majesty s Dragon introduced a dynamic new pair of heroes to the annals of fantasy fiction the noble fighting dragon Temeraire and his master and commander Capt Will Laurence Now in the latest novel they soar to new heights of breathtaking action and brilliant imagination br br It is a grim time for the dragon Temeraire On the heels of his mission to Africa seeking the cure for a deadly contagion he has been removed from military service and his captain Will Laurence has been condemned to death for treason For Britain conditions are grimmer still Napoleon s resurgent forces br have breached the Channel and successfully invaded English soil Napoleon s prime objective the occupation of London br br Separated by their own government and threatened at every turn by Napoleon s forces Laurence and Temeraire must struggle to find each other amid the turmoil of war and to aid the resistance against the invasion before Napoleon s foothold on England s shores can become a stranglehold br br If only they can be reunited master and dragon might rally Britain s scattered forces and take the fight to the enemy as never before for king and country and for their own liberty But can the French aggressors be well and truly routed or will a treacherous alliance deliver Britain into the hands of her br would be conquerors, 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 br br Now China has discovered that its rare gift intended for Napoleon has fallen into British hands and an angry Chinese delegation vows to reclaim the remarkable beast But Laurence refuses to cooperate Facing the gallows for his defiance Laurence has no choice but to accompany Temeraire back to the Far East a long voyage fraught with peril intrigue and the untold terrors of the deep Yet once the pair reaches the court of the Chinese emperor even more shocking discoveries and darker dangers await, A dazzling blend of military history high flying fantasy and edge of your seat adventure Naomi Novik s Temeraire novels set in an alternate Napoleonic era in which intelligent dragons have been harnessed as weapons of war are more than just perennial bestsellers they are a worldwide phenomenon Now in b Tongues of Serpents b Naomi Novik is back along with the dragon Temeraire and his rider and friend Capt Will Laurence br br Convicted of treason despite their heroic defense against Napoleon s invasion of England Temeraire and Laurence stripped of rank and standing have been transported to the prison colony at New South Wales in distant Australia where it is hoped they cannot further corrupt the British Aerial Corps with their dangerous notions of liberty for dragons Temeraire and Laurence carry with them three dragon eggs intended to help establish a covert in the colony and destined to be handed over to such second rate undesirable officers as have been willing to accept so remote an assignment including one former acquaintance Captain Rankin whose cruelty once cost a dragon its life br br Nor is this the greatest difficulty that confronts the exiled dragon and rider Instead of leaving behind all the political entanglements and corruptions of the war Laurence and Temeraire have instead sailed into a hornet s nest of fresh complications For the colony at New South Wales has been thrown into turmoil after the overthrow of the military governor one William Bligh better known as Captain Bligh late of HMS Bounty Bligh wastes no time in attempting to enlist Temeraire and Laurence to restore him to office while the upstart masters of the colony are equally determined that the new arrivals should not upset a balance of power precariously tipped in their favor br br Eager to escape this political quagmire Laurence and Temeraire take on a mission to find a way through the forbidding Blue Mountains and into the interior of Australia But when one of the dragon eggs is stolen from Temeraire the surveying expedition becomes a desperate race to recover it in time a race that leads to a shocking discovery and a dangerous new obstacle in the global war between Britain and Napoleon
