Naomi Novak is the name in dragons. Seriously, the Temeraire series enabled her to unseat the late, great Anne McCaffrey as the Queen of Dragon Novelists which, admittedly, is a title I just made up. That doesn’t stop this from being one of the best fantasy novels that we’ve ever had the good fortune to feature in the discounts section of Mom Reads.
We begin in the Napoleonic Wars in what is, apparently, an alternative earth. One with dragons (if you hadn’t got that, yet, which I am sure you had.) The dragon Temeraire fights for the British forces against the callous French navy and whatever happens, nothing will ever be the same again for Europe. You have to read this and particularly, now it’s on sale.
