"With the acclaimed Temeraire novels, New York Times bestselling author Naomi Novik has created a fantasy series like no other, combining the high-flying appeal of Anne McCaffrey's Pern saga and the swashbuckling derring-do of Patrick O'Brian's historical seafaring adventures. Now, with League of Dragons, Novik brings the imaginative tour de force that has captivated millions to an unforgettable finish. Napoleon's invasion of Russia has been roundly thwarted. But even as Capt. William Laurence and the dragon Temeraire pursue the retreating enemy through an unforgiving winter, Napoleon is raising a new force, and he'll soon have enough men and dragons to resume the offensive. While the emperor regroups, the allies have an opportunity to strike first and defeat him once and for all--if internal struggles and petty squabbles don't tear them apart. Aware of his weakened position, Napoleon has promised the dragons of every country--and the ferals, loyal only to themselves--vast new rights and powers if they fight under his banner. It is an offer eagerly embraced from Asia to Africa--and even by England, whose dragons have long rankled at their disrespectful treatment. But Laurence and his faithful dragon soon discover that the wily Napoleon has one more gambit at the ready--one that that may win him the war, and the world. Praise for Naomi Novik and her Novels of Temeraire "Novik's influences run the gamut from Jane Austen to Patrick O'Brian, with a side trip through Anne McCaffrey. Her books are completely involving and probably addictive, their central conceit explored in clever detail with a great deal of wit and historical insight."--San Francisco Chronicle "These are beautifully written novels: not only fresh, original, and fast-paced, but full of wonderful characters with real heart."--Peter Jackson "A gripping adventure full of rich detail and the impossible wonder of gilded fantasy."--Entertainment Weekly "A new writer is soaring on the wings of a dragon."--The New York Times "A glorious series whose future status as a genre classic is now assured."--SF Reviews "If you've never read these novels, now is the time to start."--io9 "Enthralling reading."--Time"-- "The final adventure in the New York Times bestselling Temeraire series. The deadly campaign in Russia has cost both Napoleon and those allied against him. Napoleon has been denied his victory...but at a terrible price. Lawrence and the dragon Temeraire pursue the fleeing French army back west, but are demoralized when Napoleon makes it back to Paris unscathed. Worse, they soon learn that the French have stolen Termeraire and Iskierka's egg. Now, it is do or die, as our heroes not only need to save Temeraire's offspring but also to stop Napoleon for good!"--… (més)

I can't help but be disappointed. The first 3/4 is just terrific and reminded me of the earlier books in the series where anything seemed possible with the creativity surrounding the dragons, the Napoleonic Wars and changes to society based around that idea.

But since about book 5 or 6 the series just sort of lost me. I rarely outright disagree with an author's story/plot choices, but this is going to be one of those times. Laurence and Temeraire's relationship is one of the driving forces of the plot, but somewhere along the way Laurence becomes a complete wet blanket (the amnesia in book 8 is tiresome) and many of the threads I wanted to see the story follow just get shut off.

As a series, I think it's wasted potential and nowhere near the quality of the first book or something like Uprooted. I felt the same way about Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell - another alternate history fantasy novel around this time period/setting. Great idea, but I didn't love the direction and it went on for too long.

Still, I did enjoy the series overall (3500 pages, I better have!). The banter between dragons is hilarious, some of the action scenes are absolutely incredible, Novik is a wizard when it comes to dialogue and Temeraire is an unforgettable character. ( )

The last in the Temeraire series-*small teardrop falls*-I put off reading it for so long (read number 8 in November!), Alas I had to finish it up.

This was a marvelous display of dragon power, as every type of dragon,seen thus far in the series, makes an appearance as the Allies work feverishly to defeat Napoleon. Amidst the chaos of the war, Temeraire's egg is stolen and we know there is only one villain, well actually two, who could pull this off. Fear not, there is a happy ending.

Novik does a wonderful job of wrapping up all the loose ends. All the major characters are addressed and we know where they all end up.

In large bold letters on the cover it says "The Final Temeraire Novel". I can only hope [a:Naomi Novik|8730|Naomi Novik|https://images.gr-assets.com/authors/1206646770p2/8730.jpg] has a change of heart. Perhaps with Ning in the lead role? Oh! That would be splendid!

Novik winds up her epic of intelligent dragons, cultural differences and a re-envisioned Napoleonic war. Things look bad when Napoleon tries to recruit dragons worldwide with promises of civil rights and assigned territories. Lawrence and Temeraire continue to battle his troops while diplomacy and the plans of other nations lead to a final outcome. ( )

A string, if not entirely satisfying end to the series. I really wavered between 3 and 4 stars on this but ultimately, the writing won. ( )

All of this

This is a massive tome. It acts to redeem some of the middle books. This is a return to the early Temeraire, but with a new wisdom.

Fully worth the cost.
