Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

*Starred Review* At the end of the seventh Temeraire novel, Crucible of Gold (2012), we left Captain William Laurence and his bonded dragon, Temeraire, about to embark for China after achieving a victory of sorts for Britain by short-circuiting French influence in Africa and the New World. At the beginning of Novik’s penultimate novel, Blood of Tyrants, Captain Laurence recovers from shipwreck to find himself alone—and with no memories of Temeraire—in Japan. Back on the transport ship, Temeraire is determined to look for Laurence, despite the objections of petty officers and Japan’s peculiar diplomacy. Laurence’s and Temeraire’s appearance in the island nation might make new enemies for Britain, for the relations between the Far East powers are hardly the best.Matters are not helped by Laurence’s amnesia. Meanwhile, back in Europe, Napoléon has determined to invade Russia. Novik’s plots and characterizations get more intricate and plausible with each novel. This one, especially when Temeraire has to deal with his captain’s memory loss and the possibility that Laurence might wish to marry, is an excellent example. Also, the buildup to the invasion of Russia—and its outcome—is most thoroughly original. Novik’s re-creation of much of world history based on the existence of intelligent dragons has been so well crafted that all eight books in the series are highly recommended. However, the novels are best read in order, or the reader could miss something vital. --Frieda Murray

Praise for Naomi Novik and her Novels of Temeraire
