His Majesty’s Dragon by Naomi Novik is a fantastic read, one of the best books to be published in the last decade, in my opinion. Naomi took the Napoleonic Era—with its fleets of warships and nation conflicts—and threw in aerial corps of dragons. The added fantasy element creates a fascinating series, one loved the world over. Add two great characters in Captain Will Laurence and his dragon companion Temeraire—and their wonderful relationship—and it captures what is best about our
After all, there is a reason Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson optioned the rights to create a live-action movie or television series based on His Majesty’s Dragon. It will make for a great cinematic experience!
Del Rey Books and Naomi have decided to make His Majesty’s Dragon available for $0.99 in eBook. That’s right. It is a perfect introduction to her series.
I mean, you really have no excuse.
Here is a bit more about His Majesty’s Dragon:
Aerial combat brings a thrilling new dimension to the Napoleonic Wars as valiant warriors rise to Britain’s defense by taking to the skies . . . not aboard aircraft but atop the mighty backs of fighting dragons.
When HMS Reliant captures a French frigate and seizes its precious cargo, an unhatched dragon egg, fate sweeps Capt. Will Laurence from his seafaring life into an uncertain future–and an unexpected kinship with a most extraordinary creature. Thrust into the rarified world of the Aerial Corps as master of the dragon Temeraire, he will face a crash course in the daring tactics of airborne battle. For as France’s own dragon-borne forces rally to breach British soil in Bonaparte’s boldest gambit, Laurence and Temeraire must soar into their own baptism of fire.
