Not as good as the first book, especially because most of the story is about the journey to China. It is nice to see cultural differences in the treatment of dragons between countries, but sadly it is too short and suddenly all is well and good. Still, it is a nice read and I recommend it to the people who read the first book.

Back text: When Britain intercepted a French ship and its precious cargo - an unhatched dragon's egg - Capt. Will Laurence of HMS Reliant unexpectedly became master and commander of the noble dragon he named Temeraire. As new recruits in Britain's Aerial Corps, man and dragon soon proved their mettle in daring combat against Bonaparte's invading forces.
Now China has discovered its rare gift, intended for Napoleon, has fallen into British hands - and an angry Chinese delegation vows to reclaim the remarkable beast. But Laurence refuses to cooperate. Facing the gallows for his defiance, Laurence has no choice but to accompany Temeraire back to the Far East - a long voyage fraught with peril, intrigue, and the untold terrors of the deep. Yet once the pair reaches the court of the Chinese emperor, even more shocking discoveries and darker dangers await.

Boeken over draken doen het bij mij altijd goed, dus deze mocht zo mee met mij.

Nu nog even deel 1 opzoeken, want het is zonde om met een 2de deel te beginnen.
