Third book in the Temeraire series. I didn't like this one as much since Will and Temeraire don't have their aerial group to back them up. The team dynamic between the various dragons was the best part about book one. This book does introduce a new dragon who you will either love or hate.
-------------------
After their fateful adventure in China, Capt. Will Laurence of His Majesty's Aerial Corps and his extraordinary dragon, Temeraire, are waylaid by a mysterious envoy bearing urgent new orders from Britain. Three valuable dragon eggs have been purchased from the Ottoman Empire, and Laurence and Temeraire must detour to Istanbul to escort the precious cargo back to England. Time is of the essence if the eggs are to be borne home before hatching.

Yet disaster threatens the mission at every turn–thanks to the diabolical machinations of the Chinese dragon Lien, who blames Temeraire for her master's death and vows to ally herself with Napoleon and take vengeance. Then, faced with shattering betrayal in an unexpected place, Laurence, Temeraire, and their squad must launch a daring offensive. But what chance do they have against the massed forces of Bonaparte's implacable army?

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

Taking to the March meet up for the "Series" theme! Another exciting set of travels and then she caught the feel of campaign quite well. I kept wishing I knew the Napoleonic wars a bit better since I kept expecting them to end up at Waterloo.

To the finder:
Calgary has an active group of BookCrossers that meet to swap books and discuss book crossing every second Saturday of the month at 11am at Cravings Market on Fairmount Drive SE. We always love to meet new crossers, so please join us any time you like!

OK - my husband said, as he handed the book over to me after finishing it - "You were wrong, it is NOT a set of three. There's more! " That prepared me to know it was not going to be resolved.

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.

I found this one dragging a bit at parts, but I still very much enjoyed this one. Don't want to give anything away, but I quite liked the new addition ;)
