Publisher: Del Rey Books
From Japan to China, Laurence is tossed from xenophobes to political assassins. Worse, Napoleon has turned on the Russians, and they’re desperate for allies.
Desperate to ally with Portugal, the British decide they need Captain Will Laurence and his fighting dragon, Temeraire. A journey fraught with disaster.
Temeraire and Capt. Will Laurence are transported to Australia, despite their heroic aid, only to be dumped into yet more political turmoil between power-hungry politicians.
Temeraire is banished to the breeding grounds and Laurence imprisoned. Only invasion can bring them together again, as they rally British dragons and take the fight to the enemy.
An epidemic is killing Britain’s dragons. The only fighting dragons left are Temeraire and the ferals, desperate to prevent Napoleon discovering the hole in their defenses.
Receiving new orders, Captain Laurence, Temeraire, and the remaining crew travel the Silk Road to pick up the promised eggs and help the Prussians battle Napoleon.
The Chinese are furious that such a low, common soldier has partnered up with Temeraire, and they’ll do anything to break them up…even murder on the high seas.
It’s a baptism of fire for Laurence and Temeraire, His Majesty’s Dragon, as they soar into aerial combat in the Napoleonic Wars.
Many don’t believe Thread will fall. Harpers are falling into disrepute, derided, attacked, beaten while Fax conquers Hold after Hold, murdering as he goes.
