Have you ever wondered what the Napoleonic wars would have been like with Dragons? Now you can find out.
This is actually a compilation of the first 3 books in this series, which answers that exact question. They're incredibly detailed with tons of historical information, but I was mostly reading it for the dragons.
I liked the first book much more than the other two, but they're still great, and someone who is a bit more familiar with this period of history will probably appreciate the detail mroe than I did.
Fair warning though, I cried a lot reading this.

Picked this up at May's meeting... Once again I came home with way too many books. This one may be sitting on my TBR shelf for awhile.

It only took a whole month but I finally finished this one! It was so good but with three books packed in there was a lot to read. I enjoyed this and look forward to reading more in the series.

Here are my comments for each book:

(1)
This was a fun book. A high seas adventure but with Dragons!
Looking forward to the next books in this series.

(2)
Good followup to the first book. I loved the China perspective on dragons and the continued relationship between Will & Temeraire.

(3)
Ok, I'm in the groove of these books now. This was a good episode in this series -- a villain surfaces(!), and things are coming together. I'm looking forward to seeing the dynamic of things in the next book.
