Review–Tongues of Serpents–Naomi Novik

In my opinion, weakest of the Temeraire series, but then it is a transitional book.

Temeraire and Laurence are in disgrace due to having been charged and found guilty of being traitors. They’ve been sentenced to life and outcast to Australia.  To have something to do, they set off across the continent to try to find a passage through the mountains, and also to look for smugglers.

A lot of time is spent traveling through wretched landscapes, but there is also some fascinating discussion between Temeraire and his fellow dragons as well as Laurence, so it wasn’t all bleak nothingness. 

I trust the next book will be far better.
