       Additional Information  
     
      Naomi Novikís triumphant debut, His Majestyís 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, who serves Britainís peerless Aerial Corps in the thick of the raging Napoleonic Wars. Now, in the latest novel of this dazzling series, they soar to new heights of breathtaking action and brilliant imagination.

    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 serviceĖand his captain, Will Laurence, has been condemned to death for treason.

    For Britain, conditions are grimmer still: Napoleonís resurgent forces have breached the Channel and successfully invaded English soil. Napoleonís prime objective: the occupation of London.

    Separated by their own government and threatened at every turn by Napoleonís forces, Laurence and Temeraire must struggle to find each other amid the turmoil of war and to aid the resistance against the invasion before Napoleonís foothold on Englandís shores can become a stranglehold.

    If only they can be reunited, master and dragon might rally Britainís scattered forces and take the fight to the enemy as never beforeĖfor 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 would-be conquerors?
