Empire of Ivory

Just finished Temeraire, book 4.

Up until this book Naomi Novik has made only minor changes to history with regard to the Napoleonic wars. With this book she takes a wild leap and changes EVERYTHING!

Wow.  Highly recommended.

I will warn it is depressing for the first third of the book, but then after that it is a mad chase across the world on dragonback.


Crap. That's the one book on the TBR pile I considered and decided not to bring this trip. Oh well, it's home waiting for me.
I found the depressing part of it rough slogging but it was definitely worth reading through it to get to the great parts, and the rough parts were entirely necessary to the rest of the book.

Sorry you'll have to wait now!
Less than a week. I can be strong.
